  • Jeb Bush On The Attack, Claims There’s A Big Problem With Trump’s Wall Idea

    A large part of Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump’s stance on immigration involves building a wall along the southern U.S. border — a wall the real estate tycoon insists will be paid for by Mexico. But not so fast says GOP rival Jeb Bush. The former governor of Florida said over the weekend Trump is promising to build “a wall that can’t be built,” the Washington Examiner reported. It’s a determination Bush said he made after talking to mayors and law enforcement on the Texas-Mexico border, who he said told him a wall can’t be built because of the rugged...

    More than a few Republican graybeards are panicking about how the rise of Donald Trump is pulling at the seams of the GOP’s big tent. However, the Republican establishment itself has played a big role in creating this particular Frankenstein’s monster. In September 2014, I found myself in Lexington, Nebraska, population 10,230. I was at a campaign stop with the soon-to-be-elected junior senator from Nebraska, and it seemed as if voters in this small town wanted to talk about one issue in particular. Just a few weeks earlier—right before school was to start—the federal government had showed up in Lexington...

    Referring to Donald Trump and his proposals for a wall and immigration, Bush said, “How are you going to stop all of the remittances without violating their civil rights? This guy is now the front runner, he should be held accountable as I am, he should be asked how he should pay for it. Why don’t you prove to me it’s practical?” “I’ll tell you what they say on the border,” Bush continued, “it would tear apart their community, would hurt their economic activity, and it’s not needed, and there are better ways to deal with this…”

    The debate over the future of the nation’s estimated 11.3 million unauthorized immigrants is on the political front burner once more. President Barack Obama set the stage in November when he announced new executive actions (now tied up in court) to prevent the deportation of millions of unauthorized immigrants, expanding 2012’s original program aimed mostly at providing relief to those brought to the United States as children. Illegal immigration has dominated the Republican presidential campaign, particularly after Donald Trump’s call for deporting all undocumented immigrants in the U.S. and building a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. Others have called for...

Essentially, that means U.S. sovereignty is gone for hundreds, perhaps thousands, of square miles throughout the American southwest.

    Donald Trump is many things, but a deep thinker with a nuanced grasp of the complexities of public policy is not one of them. Yet he stands firmly at the front of the GOP presidential pack largely because of one issue: immigration. And before you dismiss his thoughts on the subject as the rantings of a simple-minded xenophobe, understand that more than any other candidate, he's offering Republican primary voters some actual concrete ideas for how to address this challenge. That isn't to say that those ideas aren't insane and impractical, because they most certainly are. Trump wants to build...

Republican-for-now presidential candidate Trump has set himself apart – and ahead in the polls – from the crowded field of GOP candidates with his candid tell-it-like-he-sees-it pronouncements, particularly regarding the hot-button issue of immigration – certainly a topic presidential contenders should address.

After calling some Mexican immigrants rapists and criminals, Trump has now proclaimed that all...

In all, 5.2 million immigrants would benefit from these immigration relief measures, but the MPI notes that the implementation of new guidelines for law enforcement and immigration authorities would broaden the...

    The 24-year-old named by the FBI as the killer of four U.S. Marines today in Chattanooga, Tenn. today so far does not appear to have been on law enforcement’s radar, two U.S. officials told ABC News. “They’ve run an initial check on him. Right now, there is nothing popping early in the system on him, but that could change,” a senior U.S. official briefed on the incident said. “They are still checking multiple other databases on him.” Authorities are investigating the life of Abdulazeez in an attempt to determine what may have prompted him to carry out the deadly attack.

    Large numbers of unaccompanied minors and incomplete families once again cross the Texas border. The numbers are not as great as last summer’s surge but Border Patrol agents tell Breitbart Texas that significant crossings have again resumed. “This is starting to resemble the surge of 2014,” Border Patrol agent Chris Cabrera told Breitbart Texas Managing Director Brandon Darby in an interview in June. “We are not nearly at the numbers we were last year, but it looks like we are in the opening stages” “We had two groups equal a little over 70 in one hour…. These were women and...

    At its very essence, “The first duty of government is the protection of life, not its destruction. Abandon that, and you have abandoned all”, wrote Thomas Jefferson. When the government not only fails to protect its citizens, but enables those who are here illegally to murder them, it can no longer be called a government. When 32-year-old Kate Steinle was murdered two weeks ago in the sanctuary city of San Francisco by illegal alien and multi-felon Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, people immediately began to ask how this could happen. How could a criminal, whose history includes seven felonies along with five...
  • The question: How will Kathryn Steinle’s death push us forward?

    When it was announced that the parents of Kathryn Steinle, were going to appear on Bill O’Reilly’s national news show, it was hard to imagine what they were going to say. And it didn’t go the way anyone expected. Jim Steinle and Liz Sullivan are understandably lost in grief. But the Pleasanton couple didn’t say we need to tighten the borders or crack down on undocumented immigrants. They slipped into Fox News-speak a couple of times, saying “illegal aliens,” a jarring term that has long passed, like “colored people,” into the realm of pejorative. And I suppose it is also...

    After Trayvon Martin was killed, President Obama spoke emotionally about his death, declaring "this could have been my son." After Michael Brown was killed, Obama promised to ensure that "justice is done". He even sent administration officials to attend Brown's funeral. After Freddie Gray was killed, Obama walked out to the Rose Garden and declared: "We have some soul-searching to do." But after Kathryn Steinle was killed July 1, allegedly by an undocumented immigrant with seven felony convictions, Obama said ... nothing. No promises of "justice." No calls for "soul-searching." His silence has been deafening. Why has Obama been so...
  • Trump’s Lesson: Voters Are Furious about Illegal Immigration

    Donald Trump has rocketed to the top, or near the top, of the Republican-primary field by focusing on illegal immigration and border security. Depending on the poll, Trump is garnering in the high teens of Republican voters. It might be that the high teens is the ceiling for Trump, but in a field with more than one dozen candidates dividing the voting pie, that’s enormous. As the field narrows, Trump will have to expand those numbers if he is to win a primary, much less the nomination. But for now, Trump is in the driver’s seat, and his vehicle is...
  • State bill would allow immigration permits for farmworkers

    07/13/2015 2:19:35 PM PDT · by Oldeconomybuyer · 7 replies
    California legislators are considering a measure to allow farmworkers living in the country illegally to get work permits. The LA Times reported Monday that a similar measure died in the statehouse three years ago, opposed by labor unions and immigrants' rights groups who wanted a nationwide immigration overhaul. But with Congress failing to pass immigration reform, California lawmakers took it up again. The measure moved quickly through the Assembly last month but faces uncertain prospects in the Senate. "Here we are three years later, and we can't wait any longer," Assemblyman Luis Alejo, D-Watsonville, the bill's author, told the Times....

    Donald Trump, the billionaire Republican presidential candidate, on Saturday took his anti-illegal-immigration message to Phoenix, delivering a 70-minute speech to a packed downtown ballroom that at times seemed more about needling his White House rivals and settling scores with his critics than public policy… About 20 minutes into Trump’s speech, a group of protesters disrupted the speech, and the ballroom immediately erupted. Trump supporters shouted “U-S-A! U-S-A!” as the demonstrators were led out.“I wonder if the Mexican government sent them over here. I think so,” Trump said to applause. “Because I’m telling you. I tell about the bad deals that...
