  • Act of Love? Jeb Bush, ‘Moderate Republican,’ Calls for Deportation Of Migrant Children

    PoliticusUSA - Real Liberal Politics ^ | July 26, 2014 | Eric Shapiro
    Remember when former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, the consummate “moderate Republican,” shocked everyone by calling immigration an “act of love?” It looks like he’s changed his mind. On Thursday, he called for nearly all of the 50,000-plus immigrants in limbo on our Southwest border to be sent home. That is, “except for those deserving few who may demonstrate a true case for asylum.” Deserving few? Someone should ask Bush which of the children fleeing impoverished and violent countries (where they have a 1 in 15 chance of being murdered) like Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras “deserve” to be sent home....
  • Inhofe says undocumented minors here at Obama's 'invitation'

    U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe turned up the rhetoric on immigration late this week, telling a national television audience that young immigrants at Fort Sill and elsewhere are in the U.S. “at the invitation of the president” and comparing the situation to the administration’s exchange of five Guantanamo Bay prisoners for U.S. serviceman Bowe Bergdahl. Inhofe also signed on to a bill by Texas Sen. Ted Cruz that would effectively end Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, the Obama administration’s policy of giving low priority to deportation of undocumented immigrants who arrived in the U.S. as children and have been in the...

    On Monday, DREAMers stormed the halls of Congress to stage a "GOP funeral" in front of the offices of Republican senators, some of whom have expressed concerns that President Barack Obama's unilateral grants of temporary amnesty have caused the current border crisis. Pro-amnesty activists from United We Dream dressed in black and marched around with a mock casket that had these words emblazoned on it: "RIP GOP." They held flowers and started chanting and singing, "We shall overcome." Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has said Obama should not award temporary amnesty to DREAMers in the future because the Deferred Action for...

    Breitbart's Big Government ^ | July 19, 2014 | Tony Lee
    On Saturday, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin accused President Barack Obama of knowingly allowing turning American into an "unfunded charity" for illegal immigrants to invade and overrun. Referring to Obama as "the DREAMweaver," Palin said when Congress declined to pass amnesty legislation, Obama "waved his magic wand" and enacted his own. "And that created the current crisis as illegals are pouring in to collect what he illegally promised them," Palin said at the Western Conservative Summit in Colorado. "If Obama won't obey the law and secure the borders, it's not immigration, it's invasion." Nearly 60,000 illegal immigrant children have flooded...

    Senator Ted Cruz (R., Texas) unveiled legislation to shut down President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals’ program, and the bill is getting a mixed response among Republican colleagues.Cruz offered his bill as a plan to end the border crisis — and the suffering that takes place south of the border as children travel to the United States — by thwarting Obama’s policy of acting as if the DREAM Act has already passed.“The staggering conditions that children are being subjected to are a direct result of the amnesty that President Obama illegally and unilaterally enacted in 2012, which caused the...

    The Hill ^ | July 17, 2014 | Mario Trujillo
    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) on Thursday introduced legislation that would defund the Obama administration program that allows some illegal immigrants to remain in the country without fear of deportation. Cruz is pressing to have the bill linked to the emergency funding that President Obama has requested to deal with the recent surge of Central American children illegally crossing into the United States. "The only way to stop the border crisis is to stop President Obama’s amnesty," Cruz said in a statement. "If we do not put an end to its expansion — to the promise of amnesty that is the...

    One might hope that with a full-blown catastrophe looming on our nation’s southern border, Democrats might have considered discarding their standard talking points memo -- blaming the crisis on former President Bush and the Republicans in the House -- and respond with a realistic plan worthy of America’s national leaders. Alas, we are not so fortunate. Dead children literally are washing up on the shores of the Rio Grande -- a result of chasing the dream of amnesty spun by the likes of Barack Obama, Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi. And the closest our brave commander-in-chief has ventured to the...

    On Tuesday, Univision’s Jorge Ramos did something his colleagues at the Big Three network have been reluctant to do. He pinned the blame for the ongoing border crisis squarely on Barack Obama’s immigration policies. Writing in the June 24 edition of Miami’s El Nuevo Herald (translation courtesy of MRC Latino’s Ken Oliver-Mendez) Ramos blasted the President: (video after the jump) “This crisis of children is an unfortunate consequence of the immigration policies of President Obama. First, in concentrating his deportations on ‘criminals’ it became clear he wasn’t going to deport adolescent children. Second, upon offering the ‘deferred action’ protection (DACA)...

    The Obama administration’s arrogance and penchant for, charitably speaking, chafing the boundaries of legality, is almost boundless. But dealing with illegal immigration turns the knob past 11. Obama’s DHS has renewed DACA, the program that allows illegal immigrant children to stay in the US, sort-of-legally. DACA created the current child-immigrant crisis, and Obama’s keen to exploit it.
  • On immigrant surge, White House story falls apart

    At any other time, the growing crisis on the Mexican border, with tens of thousands of unaccompanied young people crossing illegally into the United States, might dominate the news. Yet the situation has received less attention than it might amid the furor over House Majority Leader Eric Cantor's primary defeat, the collapse of Iraq, the continuing Bergdahl matter, and Hillary Clinton's book tour. They're all genuinely important news stories, and they've crowded out disaster at the border. But whether or not many people noticed, this was the week in which the Obama administration's attempts to deflect blame for the border...

    Washington Post ^ | June 13 2014 | David Nakamura
    There is growing evidence that a surge of tens of thousands of Central American minors across the Mexican border into Texas is being driven in large part by the perception they will be allowed to stay under the Obama administration’s immigration policies. The number of minors apprehended in the past nine months who came from those three countries alone is 34,611 — 3.5 times more than in all of 2012. That was the year Obama announced that he would defer the deportations of young immigrants brought to the country illegally by their parents before 2007. An internal memo from the...

    The administration quietly redistributes illegal aliens through military bases.A source tipped me off last week to a curious occurrence: It seems that two planeloads of illegal aliens were recently shipped to Massachusetts. The first reportedly landed at Hanscom Air Force Base in Bedford. According to my tipster, approximately 160 illegal immigrants arrived on that flight and stayed nearly a week before being transferred to a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) site and then released. The second flight reportedly was diverted from Hanscom to Boston’s Logan Airport this past weekend. I am told that both Massachusetts and New Hampshire officials were...

Just yesterday TRN reported on the landslide victory in a Fremont, NE vote to bar illegal aliens from being able to rent housing. Today, a federal judge threw out a lawsuit challenging Nebraska’s authority to deny driver’s licenses to illegal aliens who have received temporary authorization to live and work in the United States by Barack Obama. The ruling could have a major impact across the nation as states come under well-funded pressure to hand licenses to illegals under...

    A year and a half ago, President Barack Obama announced a band-aid for the immigration system, providing two-year work permits for undocumented immigrants who were brought to the US as children before their 16th birthdays. The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program had undocumented immigrants rejoicing that the door to the US had opened, if only slightly. Yet Reyna Maldonado, who came to the US from Mexico as a child, hasn't felt like celebrating. There was one big question weighing on her mind: "Where do we come up with this money?" Maldonado, who is currently in the process of applying...

    (CNSNews.com) - At a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Tuesday, Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) said that President Barack Obama should be expanding his prosecutorial discretion when it comes to enforcement of immigration laws. “Unfortunately, he should not be limiting his prosecutorial discretion. He should be expanding his prosecutorial discretion,” Gutierrez said during a hearing on the constitutionality and legality of actions the Obama administration has taken on issues like the enforcement of immigration laws. The president signed a memo calling for deferred action for certain young illegal aliens who came into the country as children and have pursued education or...

    Obama said Thursday that what’s good for illegal immigrants is also good for people who are losing their health insurance because of Obamacare, saying he’ll use prosecutorial discretion to let companies continue to offer health plans that violate his law. It’s the latest example of the White House trying to work around Congress and instead take action on its own, and in this case it comes as Mr. Obama seeks to stop a wholesale abandonment of his health law by Democrats who have watched the rocky rollout. ... That immigration policy, known by its acronym of DACA, has proved controversial...

    by John HillStand With ArizonaAmnesty advocates on Wednesday launched a new mobile app designed to help illegal aliens to take advantage of President Obama’s virtual amnesty for so-called 'Dreamer' illegals. Known as “Pocket DACA” (Google Play) — a reference to Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, the Obama policy he illegally launched without Congressional authorization one year ago today. As we pointed out a year ago,  the DACA program is a rubber stamp machine - almost completely devoid of any safeguards against fraud. The process involves so little actual verification of whether an alien even meets the criteria for "deferred action"...

As we reported, Federal Judge Federal Judge Reed O’Connor told the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that they had no power to refuse to deport illegal aliens, and that he was likely to strike down Obama's virtual "DACA" amnesty for millions of illegal aliens. The ruling stunned Washington, and Crane's lawsuit could derail...

And both have been accepted in a new federal program that gives them temporary legal status, allowing them to get work permits and Social Security numbers, which they have.

    A group of Reps. led by Barbara Lee (D-CA) is asking Obama to extend healthcare coverage to the children of illegal immigrants for whom he waived deportation months before the election. These "DREAMers" -- so-called because they are recipients of a de facto DREAM Act -- are "not eligible for Medicaid, the Children's Health Insurance Program, or federal subsidies provided under [Obamacare]." The waiver of deportation was known as the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), and Democrats are now saying it simply does not go far enough. According to Reps. Lee, Judy Chu (D-CA), Zoe Lofgren (D-CA), Lucille Roybal-Allard...
