    Politics: Give us your poor, your tired, your future Democrats waiting to be registered. That's what some in the party are saying as they urge the president to pursue immigration goals even if it hurts in the '14 midterms. In other words, damn the political torpedoes and full speed ahead in the fundamental demographic and political transformation of America. "You'll always have members whose political vulnerability they tie entirely to immigration," said Rep. Raul Grijalva, D-Ariz. "We didn't make progress when we were in the majority because we were being protective of those (members) on immigration reform. At some point...

    President Obama is practically shouting from the rooftops that he's about to grant a new unilateral amnesty to as many as six million illegal aliens, but the topic of immigration does not come up in a new op-ed from Speaker John Boehner explaining his lawsuit against Obama for lawlessness. In the op-ed, Boehner explains why he chose to focus the lawsuit only on Obamacare. “On the advice of legal experts, the House action will focus on his decision to extend--twice--the deadline to institute the employer mandate in his healthcare law,” Boehner wrote. “We believe this targeted lawsuit offers the best...

Sessions explained the "constitutional crisis" the president would cause with his plan "to issue executive orders in direct contradiction of long-established American law that would grant administrative amnesty and work permits to five million, to six million persons that are unlawfully in this country."

    Amnesty: With word out about U.S. coddling of Central American illegal immigrants, Haitians and people from much farther abroad are flooding our shores to get their slice. This is what comes when politics trumps law. Some of the strongest voices speaking in favor of amnesty for the latest flood of illegal immigrants from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, such as columnist George Will, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and the Catholic bishops, have used the hardship and mercy argument to scrap the law and permit the illegals to stay. "The idea that we can't assimilate these 8-year-old 'criminals' with their...

Yet the federal government insists the impact would be minimal, and many immigration lawyers and advocates describe the emergency shelters established in other states as worlds apart, secure, secluded facilities that quietly serve as way stations for thousands of young migrants. The US Department of Health and Human Services, which operates the shelters, says it “pays for...

    On behalf of illegal unaccompanied minors flooding our southern border, liberals are currently citing Jesus in Matthew 19:14 saying, “Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.” Using that particular verse is problematic because America is not the “kingdom of heaven,” and regardless of the age or economic status of the children, Jesus would never approve of the type of lawless chaos the left is currently promoting. Nonetheless, that has not curtailed the sermonizing of Biblical scholar/House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. Recently, by quoting the Conference Bishops, a group...
