House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California will attend the private dinner, along with the No. 2 and No. 3 Democrats in the House, congressmen Steny Hoyer of Maryland and James Clyburn of South Carolina. The top Democrat on the House Budget Committee, Maryland's Chris Van Hollen, will be there, plus the chair of the House Democrat's campaign arm, Steve Israel of New York.

    The 1979 book Japan as Number One: Lessons for America, by East Asia scholar Ezra Vogel, stoked fears that the United States was about to be outcompeted by the land of the rising sun. And why not? The U.S. had just suffered through a decade of stagflation and was about to enter what was then the worst recession since the Great Depression. By the late 1980s, the case seemed ironclad. "I don't mean to be an alarmist, but I get the uneasy feeling that America is history," wrote Robert Kuttner, then the economics correspondent for The New Republic, in the...

    THE PARTY IS OVER: Democrat, That Is © 2011 by Anthony James The fur is really flying now. President Obama and his Democrat handlers, enablers and rumpswabs are scurrying about like ants on crystal meth, plopping themselves in front of every news microphone and TV camera they can find to continue to perpetuate the mindless “Tea Party downgrade” meme some Progressive propaganda genius came up with over the weekend. It has become clear that, despite the outrageously preposterous implication that The Tea Party had anything at all to do with the Standard & Poor's downgrade of the United States’ credit...

    A surge in the number of volunteers fanning out across Arizona's southern deserts to aid illegal immigrants is expected this summer. The increase comes despite the ongoing prosecution of two volunteers arrested last summer on federal charges they intentionally conspired to transport illegal entrants, leaders of illegal immigrant aid groups said. Shanti A. Sellz and Daniel M. Strauss, both 24, were arrested as they drove illegal entrants to a clinic on July 9 and face trial in October. Leaders of two faith-based groups, No More Deaths and Samaritan Patrol, say they've signed up hundreds of volunteers to deliver food, water...

    MEXICO CITY - Mexico will suspend its plan to distribute maps to migrants wanting to cross the U.S. border illegally, but an official said Thursday the decision was not made because of American pressure. Miguel Angel Paredes, spokesman for the federal Human Rights Commission, said the decision was made because human rights officials in border states expressed concern that the maps would show anti-immigrant groups where migrants likely would gather. On Wednesday, U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff said the United States opposed the plan "in the strongest terms."

    Mexicans Getting Maps, Tips On How To Cross BorderPOSTED: 7:57 am EST January 25, 2006 MEXICO CITY -- A Mexican government commission said Tuesday it will distribute at least 70,000 maps showing highways, rescue beacons and water tanks in the Arizona desert to curb the death toll among illegal border crossers. The National Human Rights Commission, a government-funded agency with independent powers, denied the maps - similar to a comic-style guide booklet Mexico distributed last year - would encourage illegal immigration.

    Bush’s giant Right Wing Noise Machine (RWNM) loves to preach about the Bush economic miracle. In fact, the RWNM’s current thinking is Bush doesn’t spend enough time talking about his economic triumphs. If only he did, then everyone would fall in line and believe in the great Bush economic miracle. There is one problem with this argument: it’s a lie. Any way you look at the Bush economy, it comes up short. Today, I want to compare Bush’s job creation record with other economic recoveries. As usual, Bush comes up way short. The national Bureau of Economic Research has identified...

    Mexican officials in the U.S. and abroad are involved in massive and almost daily interference in American c, according to a blistering new report. "Mexican consulates are engineering a backdoor amnesty for their illegal migrants and trying to discredit American immigration enforcement – activities clearly beyond diplomatic bounds,” Heather MacDonald writes in the Dallas Morning News. MacDonald says Mexico is "shameless” in promoting illegal entry into the U.S., citing these examples: The Mexican government publishes and distributes a comic book-style guide on breaching the border safely and evading detection once in the U.S. Mexican officials ordered their consulates to promote...

    What would you call it if a neighboring country used its military forces to escort illegal border crossers, including drug-runners, to border areas known to be less secure? I'd call it an act of war. And that's what the Mexican government stands accused of doing this week – not just by the Minuteman Project President Bush derides as a "vigilante" movement, but by Border Patrol officers and elected U.S. officials. President Bush still has a little time to save face – though it is slipping away quickly. He can change directions, admit that the Mexican border poses the No. 1...

    AGUA PRIETA, Mexico – Hector Salazar's chases through the desert creosote and sagebrush west of here last week began like many encounters between illegal immigrants and the U.S. Border Patrol. But Salazar works for the Mexican government. He cruises the rough dirt roads of the sprawling La Morita ranch in an orange pickup emblematic of Grupo Beta, the Mexican agency whose mission is to protect immigrants approaching the border, not to arrest them. As he overtook a group of six young men filing north with small backpacks, he told them about the Minutemen who had taken up positions on a...

We've witnessed too many gaffes and missteps to remember. So when critics howled over the Mexican government's newest blunder, I didn't wince. What's another dumb move, I figured. Last month the Mexican government distributed more than 1 million comic books that advise what and what not to do when crossing the border - illegally. Mexico bashers north of the border had a conniption fit. The pocket-size...

    Mexican authorities are distributing more than 1 million copies of an illustrated handbook that gives migrants illegally crossing the U.S. border safety tips, suggesting that they carry enough water, follow railroad tracks and utility lines if they get lost and wear clothing that will protect them from the elements. The new handbooks, the latest effort by the Mexican government to educate people about the dangers of unsanctioned crossings, has angered some anti-immigrant groups that say parts of it read like a how-to manual. "It's an encouragement that will lead to more illegal aliens coming," said Rick Oltman, a spokesman for...

It also sets out their legal rights on detention.

Abdel-Jabbar Hamdan, 44, a founder of a mosque in Anaheim, was arrested on immigration charges last month as federal authorities unsealed an indictment against the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development, charging the Texas-based charity funneled millions to the Palestinian militant group Hamas.
