  • The GOP Needs to Change its Narrative on Illegal Immigration? [response to Juan Williams piece]

    I agree that the GOP needs to change its "script" on illegal immigration; they need to stop allowing the Party of Jim Crow to define the terms and set the narrative. They need to stop being defensive about what the majority of the American people want: Existing immigration laws must be enforced and the incentives for illegal immigration must be removed. The Democrat-controlled IRS is most recently offering "tax refunds" to illegal aliens who never paid any taxes! So Republicans should make it clear that the status quo of virtually unchecked illegal immigration benefits only the elites on both sides...

    Old Man Bloomberg ignored the opinions of medical professionals and various other data today on his weekly radio address to deem any non-recreational use of the nation's favorite herb fake. "Yeah, right, medical, come on," he said. "There's no medical. This is one of the great hoaxes of all time." While the mayor famously said, "You bet I did. And I enjoyed it," when asked if he'd ever smoked weed, he insisted, "I don't have any personal experience in terms of today," before reverting to his recycled talking points like, "marijuana is much stronger today than it was 20 or...

    SEN. TED CRUZ (R-TEXAS): The reason why I'm a conservative is because conservative policies work and they improve opportunities. They are the avenue for climbing the economic dream. And what I have been talking about for many years is opportunity conservatism, that every policy should focus like a laser on easing the means of ascent up the economic ladder. That we should be championing the 47%, to take that now infamous comment. Look, the great thing about Americans -- Americans don't want to be dependent upon government. Dependency saps the spirit, it doesn't work. Americans want to stand on their...

    A Marine veteran jailed for months in Mexico after trying to carry a family heirloom shotgun across the border has been freed, U.S. officials and his lawyer said late Friday. The attorney for 27-year-old Jon Hammar tweeted Friday night that his client had been released from a detention center in Matamoros, Mexico. “Jon is out, going home!” Eddie Varon Levy tweeted. … An aide to a legal representative of the Mexican attorney general’s office had told U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson’s staff about the pending release after the Florida Democrat’s office got word from Hammar’s mother, according to a press release...

    DOJ says Mexican cartels operating in over 1,000 U.S. cities By Nicholas Ballasy - The Daily Caller 12:12 PM 09/29/2011 ADVERTISEMENT Mexican-based transnational criminal organizations (TCOs) were “operating in more than a thousand U.S. cities during 2009 and 2010, spanning all nine Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) regions,” according to the U.S. Justice Department’s National Drug Threat Assessment of 2011. According to the report, the National Drug Intelligence Center (NDIC) assesses with “high confidence” that Mexican-based TCOs “control distribution of most of the heroin, marijuana, and methamphetamine available in the United States” and production of these drugs in...

    BOSTON (AP) — A leather company owner was arrested during a raid at his company Tuesday and accused of hiring hundreds of illegal immigrants to work in poor conditions so he could meet the demands of $91 million in military contracts. Francesco Insolia, 50, and three top managers were arrested after federal agents raided Michael Bianco Inc. in New Bedford on Tuesday morning. About two thirds of the company's 500 employees were detained by immigration officials for possible deportation, authorities said. U.S. Attorney Michael Sullivan accused Insolia of exploiting the illegal immigrants to maximize his profits on the military contracts...

    Republican congressional candidate Van Taylor may have broken a record for a campaign commercial. Category: crowding the most brown faces into one frame of TV time. True, they are sort of bled of their brown in the picture, bled also of their humanity. They represent the hordes invading our land to clean our hotel rooms, make meals for us, harvest our crops and in general make our lives, um, livable. Not to dismiss the problem of immigration reform. It's serious business Congress has left undone too long. But to judge the election-year offensive about illegal immigrants, you'd think we were...

    With Senate Republicans “drifting toward disaster” on immigration, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said it’s up to President Bush to reconnect with the majority of Americans who support a strong enforcement-first approach. Bush will deliver a primetime speech to the nation Monday night on immigration—kicking off what is expected to be a tumultuous time in Washington as Senate and House Republicans clash on the best way to deal with immigration reform.

    To: President George W. Bush, U.S. Congress, & U.S. Senate We, the lawful citizens of the United States of America, hereby demand that our elected representatives begin working on our behalf to enforce the existing laws on illegal immigration, as well as making our borders impenetrable. Many arguments are being made attempting to show us some positive aspects of ignoring the presence of illegal aliens in our nation. The facts are that illegal aliens are very damaging to our economy and our nation’s stability. Emergency rooms of many hospitals near the Southern border are being forced to turn our own...

    DETAILS, NEWS ARTICLES, AND CARAVAN SCHEDULE Well, the event last night in Abilene was cancelled. No, the illegal aliens didn't do it; it was Mother Nature. It is difficult to have an event under the threat of a tornado and hail the size of grapefruit. So the caravan drove through much of the night toward Crawford and then finally crashed, er stopped and slept, for a little while. They are about an hour outside of Crawford and will be set for a 1:00 pm event. Lyman said that they may be expecting a thousand people to be there and...
