  • 'You're a Liar': Pro-Immigration Demonstrators Confront Pelosi Over DACA Talks With Trump

    Things got a little heated Monday when a group of young immigrants confronted House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi at a pro-DACA press conference in San Francisco. Several dozen young immigrants shouted down the top House Democrat, following her recent conversations with President Donald Trump over the future of a program that grants many of them legal status. "We are immigrant youth, undocumented and unafraid," they chanted, taking over a scheduled press conference Pelosi, along with Reps. Barbara Lee and Jared Huffman, organized to call for the immediate passage of the Dream Act, a federal proposal that offered many of the...

    Salon’s Top 'Conservative’ List Is Nearly All 'Never Trump' Liberals Who Hate the Right Kristine Marsh October 16, 2017 Over the weekend, liberal online magazine Salon put out a highly mockable list of their top “25 Conservatives Actually Worth Following on Twitter.” The story made a splash on social media, because it seemed Salon’s only criteria for being a “worthy conservative” is that you had to be an outspoken “Never-Trumper” and a fierce critic of the right. Brownie points if you support Obamacare and spew profanities at the president. What didn’t count? Actually being a smart, thoughtful commentator on conservative...

    Between 2010 and 2016, 8.1 million new immigrants settled in the United States. New arrivals are offset by the roughly 300,000 immigrants who return home each year and annual natural mortality of about 300,000 among the existing foreign-born population.

    The Washington Compost ^ | October 9, 2017 | Ed O'Keefe and David Nakamura
    Some House Democrats are raising the specter of withholding support for must-pass spending legislation later this year in response to President Trump’s hard-line immigration proposals — meaning the fate of roughly 690,000 younger undocumented immigrants could become a major factor in negotiations to keep the government open after December. Democrats on Monday dismissed Trump’s calls to construct a wall along the entire length of the U.S.-Mexico border, crack down on “sanctuary cities” and seek ways to curb Central American migrants from illegally crossing into the country. But conservative Republicans insisted that such issues must be addressed before Congress considers offering...
  • Trump seeks border wall, crackdown on unaccompanied minors for 'Dreamer' deal

    President Donald Trump, who pledged to work with Democrats to protect "Dreamers" — young people brought illegally to the United States as children — called on Sunday for money to fund a border wall and thousands more immigration officers to be part of any deal. Trump's list of immigration "principles," laid out in a document seen by Reuters, is likely to be a non-starter for Democrats, who are seeking a legislative fix for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program that Trump ended last month. The proposal includes a crackdown on unaccompanied minors who enter the United States, many...
  • Chuck Grassley Suggests Trading DACA Amnesty for Border Security, Mandatory E-Verify

    Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) suggested during a hearing yesterday that a deal to give amnesty to roughly 800,000 illegal aliens shielded by an Obama-created program could be reached if it includes more border security and mandatory E-Verify. Grassley, considered an ally to President Trump’s populist, economic nationalist, “America First” agenda, said during the Senate hearing that any deal to give amnesty and a pathway to U.S. citzenship to the hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens protected by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program must include more security at the U.S.-Mexico border. “First and foremost, any...

    The Daily Caller ^ | 9/30/2017 | Henry Rodgers and Will Racke
    A pair of Republican senators are marketing their bill to legalize the beneficiaries of an executive amnesty program as a tougher alternative to a competing Democratic proposal, but immigration skeptics say the bills are hardly different in substance. Known as the “Succeed Act,” the GOP bill would give legal status to younger illegal immigrants covered under the now-cancelled Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. It requires applicants to meet strict education or work requirements to be eligible for a green card and lays out a 15-year path to citizenship — 10 years in a conditional status period and then...
  • Reminder on pro-amnesty RINO traitors to Cantorize in 2018 primaries esp Flake, Corker, Hatch

    09/28/2017 12:05:10 PM PDT · by Javeth · 16 replies
    Just a reminder of the list of most traitorous Congressional RINOs up for reelection next year and a priority for Cantorizing in the 2018 primaries. They performed their rank betrayal and backstabbing by voting in favor of the Senate's 2013 Gang of Eight immigration reform bill that favored mass amnesty, mass immigration and even more job-killing h1b visas.Even worse, these cowards, traitors and sell-outs generally did so while taking essentially bribery money from Chamber of Commerce lobbyists or globalist open-borders fanatics like Sheldon Adelson, Mark Zuckerberg or George Soros, the very worst kinds of traitors. They therefore betrayed the conservative...

    On Monday, three Republican senators unveiled a bill to deal with the DACA mess President Trump dumped in their laps earlier this month. Rather than merely keep his promise to rescind President Barack Obama’s unilateral decision to grant legal status to children who were brought into the United States illegally, Trump gave Congress six months to pass a bill resolving the dilemma of the so-called DREAMers, so named because of the acronym of the original bill that promised them relief. But if they think liberals will accept anything short of the full amnesty for those kids and their families that...

    Two Republican senators have introduced a new bill that addresses the status of hundreds of thousands of young undocumented immigrants known as Dreamers, potentially offering them a 15-year path to citizenship. The bill, known as the SUCCEED Act, would also prevent recipients from sponsoring family members, an attempt to address concerns from immigration hawks and President Trump. "This, I believe, is a fair and orderly method for providing a permanent solution for the DACA children," Sen. Thom Tillis, R-N.C., told reporters today. To be eligible, participants would have to pass a criminal background check and have a high school diploma...

    Last week, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and uber-liberal Congresswoman Barbara Lee held a press conference with fellow open-border and amnesty advocates. They wanted to discuss their proposed legislative deal to grant legal status to the 800,000 DACA recipients who are losing that status following President Trump’s executive order to phase out the program. Suddenly, a small crowd of irate illegal alien youth crowded the stage, stole the show, and demanded complete amnesty for all illegals in the country: not just for themselves, but for their parents, their siblings, for anyone else who has broken into this country. Pelosi lost...

    Sen. Thom Tillis will introduce his “conservative Dream Act” on Monday that would provide a pathway to citizenship for as many as 2.5 million young undocumented immigrants, but one that is long and involves “extreme vetting.” The North Carolina Republican and cosponsor James Lankford, an Oklahoma Republican, will pitch the plan as “merit-based” relief that must be earned — and, critically, not “amnesty,” according to Republican talking points obtained by McClatchy. But unlike other merit-based immigration proposals that limit new immigrants from entering the country based on their job skills, this proposal would limit who can remain in the country...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Wednesday that illegal immigrant parents who brought their children to the U.S. in defiance of the law “did a great thing,” giving the country an infusion of successful young people. Mrs. Pelosi’s comments strike a dissonant note from many analysts, who while saying the Dreamers are sympathetic since they had no say in the decision, say the parents do deserve blame for creating the problem. He comments came after she was shouted down by protesters earlier this week who interrupted her at an event, and demanded she do more to protect all illegal immigrants....

    Less than a quarter of Republicans in Congress actually voice support funding for President Donald Trump’s wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, a new survey by USA Today said Wednesday. The USA Today poll asked all members of Congress if they approved an initial $1.6 billion in funding to begin construction of a wall According to the survey, only 69 of 292 GOP legislators responded that they approve of the plan. Three — Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz.; Rep. Steve Pearce, R-N.M.; and Rep. Will Hurd, R-Texas — said they oppose it. The rest didn’t directly answer the question, or simply didn’t...

    White House petition ^ | 9/19/17 | self
    Trump clearly favors legalizing DACA recipients and perhaps all DREAMers. He clearly isn't going to do mass deportations of DREAMers. If you oppose amnesty, then you have to give him an alternative plan. This petition does exactly that, proposing that Trump helps repatriate DREAMers via a voluntary program that would help them reestablish themselves in their home countries. It has the following advantages: * It's a workable plan. * It wouldn't get tied up in the courts. * It would help the USA and Mexico. * It won't incentivize future illegal immigration. * Trump can promote and defend it. *...

    On this weekend’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) said that last week in a meeting between President Donald Trump, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY), a “basic understanding” on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program was reached. Durbin said, “We’re going forward with the understanding that we can work with the White House to come up with an agreement that includes DACA, that includes citizenship for those who are protected under the DREAM Act and also has a substantial commitment to increase border protection. Those are the...

    Taxpayers in the United States will face a steep bill if the Trump administration signs legislation to extend legal status to so-called “Dreamers,” the illegal aliens who arrived as children and are now protected under the Obama-holdover unlawful executive order known as DACA. The cost of a legislation to legalize childhood arrivals is likely to be far higher than earlier attempts because of Obamacare’s health insurance subsidies. The Affordable Care Act subsidizes the costs of health insurance for millions of Americans and would likely foot the bill for many of those whose residency in the U.S. would be legalized by...
