    First-time voter Stephanie Rodriguez, the daughter of illegal immigrants, told an MSNBC reporter Friday she is the only person in her family that can legally vote. Rodriguez, a voter in Arizona, said she cast her vote because of immigration. "I was motivated to vote by my mother, who is not able to vote, as soon as my ballot arrived at home," Rodriguez said. "She was like here it is, Stephanie, you can do it!"

    The Pew Research Center released a report last week based on information from the National Center for Health Statistics on birth rates in the United States. Data found within the report could raise concerns over both the economic and cultural ramifications of the birth rates of foreign-born mothers in the United States. According to the report, "In 2014, about 275,000 babies were born to unauthorized-immigrant parents in the United States, accounting for about seven percent of all U.S. births, and 32 percent of all U.S. births to foreign-born mothers." While that figure represents a decline in the number of babies...

    According to a recent Pew Research Center study, roughly one out of every twelve newborns in the United States is a so-called anchor baby. An anchor baby is a child born in the U.S. to a foreign women who came here to take advantage of the fact that all persons born in the United States are citizens of the United States. That right is guaranteed by the 14th Amendment. There is a problem here. Who is paying for the costs involved? In particular, who is paying the initial and future medical costs, the down-the-road educational costs and any social benefits...

    As NewsBuster Geoffrey Dickens has noted, Ben Affleck appeared on yesterday evening's edition of Hardball. And while it's true that the actor/director/Dem activist offered a generally innocuous analysis, he did manage to engage in a bit of religious bigotry. Affleck's foul foray arose in the course of his discussion of the way the various Republican candidates have dealt with the issue of evolution and creationism. Talk turned to the former governor of Arkansas. BEN AFFLECK: I think Huckabee actually framed his position in a much less dramatic way than had been made out. Which was he said it could...

"At the risk of understating what is necessary to preserve liberty in our form of government, I think more and more that it depends on good citizens, discharging their daily duties in their daily obligations," Thomas said Saturday during a commencement address at Hillsdale College, a small liberal arts college in Michigan.

The H-1B is a visa designed to provided corporations with cheaper and less experienced guest workers to fill technology jobs. Norm Matloff, a professor at UC Davis, has written extensively about H-1B visa abuses, and his work is widely cited in the H-1B reform community. Matloff, a self-described Democrat and longtime admirer of Sen. Bernie Sanders, gave Donald Trumps H-1B policy an A+ and was pleased that the Republican frontrunner was...

    ination to the Supreme Court made by President Barack Obama, the White House is surely gearing up for a strategic nomination and epic battle for the future of the highest court in the country. Obama needs to move forward quickly with a transformative nominee who stands a chance of success on Capitol Hill. Diane Humetewa, U.S. District Judge for the District of Arizona is perhaps the most likely person to advance through Senate confirmation during Obama's final year in office. Nominating her would transform the federal judiciary, bring Native Americans into the highest echelons of political society, and actually stand...

    There's been a lot of talk about whether Cruz is considered an natural born citizen, and therefore, eligible or not to run for President. There are different interpretations and I've been contemplating this issue and I want to throw this out for discussion: If two American citizens are living in, say, Germany when their child is born; does that automatically make the child a German citizen? Or are they American citizens because their parents are? Hmm... Yet, in America, when a child of two non-citizens is born in the USofA, the child is automatically considered a citizen. So, do we...

"I'm an Engineering Professor at Clemson.""Engineers!", he said. "Boy, we sure need a lot more of them, don't we!"I shook my head in wonder at his comment. Indeed, if you get your news from the mainstream mediayou might think there's a big shortage of students in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). The truth, however, is quite different.For example, Clemson's engineering enrollment has reached almost 5,300 students - an 80 percent increase since 2008!In my...

    The biggest problem with Rep. Paul's (R-Texas) latest comments on immigration is that they are NOT just some ad hoc thoughts tossed off carelessly at some speaking event. These are engraved in a brand new book. Until the release of the book, Liberty Defined, Dr. Paul had a mixed record in Congress and the fact that he had taken the NumbersUSA "No Amnesty" pledge at the end of his Presidential campaign in 2008. That had earned him a C-minus on our 2012 Presidential Hopefuls Immigration Stances Report Card. Not impressive, but the third best (behind Rep. Bachman with a B-minus...

"Well, I think you need it, because I think PACs are a horrible thing," Trump said on CNN's "State of the Union" when asked if he would pursue campaign finance reform.

    The ultimate goal of the antigun movement is this: the universal elimination of civilian firearms’ ownership and possession. This is true and incontrovertible. Everything the antigun movement does is directed to the attainment of that goal. Nothing the antigun movement does diverges from the path to that goal. When asked to admit the truth of the assertion, the antigun movement, and its sounding board, the mainstream corporate media, will deny it, curtly and vehemently. But, the antigun movement’s actions belie its blunt denial. Realization of the movement’s goal amounts to de facto repeal of the fundamental right of the people...

    San Francisco police officers are being asked to combat racism in the ranks and take a pledge to turn in colleagues displaying intolerant behavior, such as slurs and jokes targeting people of color, gays and women. The pledge is part of a broader public relations campaign by the embattled police department to repair frayed relations with minority neighborhoods and community activists. The campaign comes amid growing tensions between police and black communities that are shaking up departments across the country and have led to the dismissal of top brass in some cities, including Chicago. Politically progressive San Francisco is not...

Chief Justice Roy Moore said probate judges have a ministerial duty not to issue marriage licenses in conflict with the state marriage amendment pending a decision from the Alabama Supreme Court.

Mr. Bush said on Monday that it was ludicrous to suggest that he was using a slur to talk about Hispanics when discussing birthright citizenship. He went on to explain that he was largely referring to people from Asian countries who sneak into the United States planning to give birth. No matter which ethnic group youre referring to, anchor babies is a slur that stigmatizes children from birth, said Representative Judy...

The famously accurate mock election correctly predicted the outcomes of the 2008 and 2012 elections, and the university claims it's the "largest and most elaborate mock presidential simulation in the nation."...

    THE F-1 VISA Under current law, the F-1 student visa operates under the assumption that foreign students have no intention of abandoning their home countries. It is intended to operate similar to a foreign exchange program, where the students return home after their studies are concluded. Current statute reads that an F-1 visa holder is “an alien having a residence in a foreign country which he has no intention of abandoning…” The I-Squared bill turns that on its head by removing the presumption that F-1 visa applicants return to their home country—rendering admissible a larger pool of foreign applicants, who...

The CBO report does not predict that the jobs themselves will be lost. Rather, they said that new expansions and mandates would encourage many employees to drop out of the workforce voluntarily.

There's a spectrum of answers to this question on the right, of course: 1. Amnesty is citizenship without preconditions. That's the strictest definition, and naturally the one preferred by Beltway Republicans like Marco Rubio in his Gang of Eight days. (Marco Rubio circa 2010 had a different view.) As long as you're forcing illegals to jump through some sort of hoop, be it learning English, paying back taxes, going to the back of the line,...

But the numbers among Republicans are astronomical. Seventy percent agree with Mr. Trump -- a super-majority. So why does the Republican establishment continue to support pro-amnesty candidates?

The poll also found that 60 percent of Americans want Washington to do more to attack ISIS, though they prefer air strikes over troop involvement. The details of the poll:

    The 2016 Republican nominating contest will eventually boil down to a two-man race between a pair of Senate freshmen: Marco Rubio of Florida and Ted Cruz of Texas. That’s the increasingly popular theory being advanced by a growing number of political prognosticators in recent weeks as both candidates trend upward in national polling. To wit, here’s Matt Lewis during Tuesday night’s presidential debate: Tonight was a step toward the Cruz vs Rubio final act a lot of us are anxious to see.— Matt Lewis (@mattklewis) November 11, 2015 It’s not hard to see the appeal of such a denouement....

    President Obama on Thursday denounced Donald J. Trump's campaign promise to deploy a "deportation force" to round up millions of immigrants in the country illegally and send them home, calling it unrealistic and un-American. "The notion that we're going to deport 11, 12 million people from this country - first of all, I have no idea where Mr. Trump thinks the money's going to come from," Mr. Obama said in an interview with George Stephanopoulos of ABC News. "It would cost us hundreds of billions of dollars to execute that." "Imagine the images on the screen flashed around the world...

    When it comes to the topic of immigration, you may not be surprised to find that a new poll discovered that Republicans trust Donald Trump more than any other candidate on the issue.

    A new poll of 2,000 citizens shows that Donald Trump's immigration stance has more support among Hispanic Americans than Gov. Mitt Romney won in 2012, even after the pollsters reminded respondents of Trump's most controversial statements on immigration. Twenty-eight percent of Hispanic Americans agreed with Trump's June statement that "When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best. They're sending people that have lots of problems. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists." In 2012, Romney won 27 percent of the Hispanic-American vote. Twelve percent of Hispanic-Americans said they were not sure what to say about Trump's comment,...

    If the open borders lobby had wanted to funnel support to Donald Trump, it couldn't have done better than its latest stunts: A video of raging, foul-mouthed anchor babies and an illegal-alien "bill of rights." In less than a week, immigration advocates have managed to decisively if inadvertently make a case against illegal immigration just by showing the public what it's all about. In a Youtube video calculated to offend, put on by a political action committee called Deportracism.com, a couple of Latino nine-year old "anchor babies" made a gangsta-style rap directed against Donald Trump.
