  • Americans agree with Trump: The illegal immigrants must go

    foxnews.com ^ | Todd Starnes
    Most Americans agree with Donald Trump -- the illegal aliens have to go. Head 'em up, move 'em out. A new Fox News poll shows 52 percent of the nation favors deporting the millions of illegals back to their home countries. Republicans and Democrats support Mr. Trump’s plan. 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? Jeb Bush accused Mr. Trump of preying on people's deep-seated fears. “This whole idea of preying on people’s deep-seated fears of what the future looks...

    GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump says the United States has "absolutely no choice" but to close down mosques where "some bad things are happening." "Nobody wants to say this and nobody wants to shut down religious institutions or anything, but you know, you understand it," Trump said on Fox News's "Hannity" on Tuesday. "A lot of people understand it. We're going to have no choice." Trump said on Monday he would "strongly consider" closing mosques if elected in response to the terrorist attacks in France last Friday that killed at least 129 people and injured hundreds more.

    In the days since Friday's horrific attacks in Paris—the most deadly act of terrorism on European soil in more than a decade—something approaching a consensus has emerged among politicos, pundits, and the political press corps in Washington: The fear-inducing violence in France could bring order to what has been a chaotic Republican presidential campaign here at home. The New York Times reports that the attacks have "thrust national security to the heart of the presidential race, forcing candidates to scramble and possibly prompting voters to reconsider their flirtations with unconventional candidates." Bloomberg Politics calls it "an important gut-check moment for...

    France imported cheap foreign labor (Muslim in this case) for decades and didn't care too much about the culture clash. Then the Muslims did what they've always done for 1400 years in the middle east, in Africa, Asia Minor, Asia, Europe, etc.: Infiltrate, immigrate, increase in numbers, make demands, activate politically, implement Sharia law, take over militarily and or via violence and terrorism. France has now lost their sovereignty, lost their culture, lost their religion, lost their freedom. If they don't wake up and kick out the Muslims soon, they're going to lose their nation and their heads. Islam is...

    American military officials have come to the conclusion that the U.S.-led air campaign targeting Syria’s oil infrastructure — which has provided the Islamic State with hundreds of millions of dollars over the past two years — has been too cautious. A new offensive aims to change that. Officials would not say if the rules of engagement for the U.S.-led air war against the Islamic State, also known as ISIS, have changed to allow for a new and more aggressive round of strikes. But there was little doubt that the U.S. aerial assault that tore through 116 ISIS oil tankers parked...

A Reuters/Ipsos poll said that virtually everybody has heard of the ISIS attacks in Paris, pushing terrorism into a tie with the economy, not global warming as Democratic candidates have claimed. 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:

Thirteen American governors (all Republican) have announced they will refuse to accept Syrian refugees in their states, demonstrating a remarkable ignorance of Constitutional law.

    Donald Trump is brilliant. Trump is a chess master. His instincts about immigration and the border were 100 percent on the money. First of all, with the terrible Islamic State terrorist attack in Paris, immigration and our open border with Mexico just became the No. 1 issue in America. All the presidential candidates are now playing on Trump’s home turf. Trump is in command of the most important issue in America. Next, always remember Trump wrote the book on negotiation. It’s called “The Art of the Deal.” Well his new book should be called “The Art of the Immigration Deal.”...

    Here's a question an incisive debate moderator ought to ask Marco Rubio: are you happy Senators Sessions and Cruz helped defeat your Gang of 8 immigration bill? One of the more obscure yet destructive provisions of the Gang of 8 bill I wrote about in 2013 was section 3405 (page 693), which created an entire new pipeline for refugees. This bill would have concocted an unconditional right to immediate legal permanent resident status for any person in the world who declares himself "stateless." Had the bill passed in 2013, it would have given the Obama administration power to define who...

At issue, of course, are Obama’s executive amnesty, the recent influx of illegal immigrants (including huge numbers of children), the vast number of illegals currently living and working in the U.S., border security (such as it is), and a host of related issues including the burden of illegal immigration...

    The fourth Republican presidential debate was, by most accounts, a bit of a snoozer. But in a good way. There was less interpersonal conflict, more substantive discussion of economic policy. Donald Trump, in particular, was judged "subdued" and “surprisingly subdued” and "uncharacteristically subdued.” Trump himself pronounced it "a very elegant evening" in which "everybody actually did fine." All very forgettable, civil and elegant. Except the part where the Republican front-runner proposed the forced expulsion of 11 million people and endorsed the historical precedent of Operation Wetback, an Eisenhower-era mass deportation program that was as ugly and offensive as its name....

Despite that omission, it seems likely that if Rubio continues to rise in the GOP race, someone, somewhere will pay attention to his most important accomplishment.

    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...

    Esteban Torres was 3 years old when his father was sent back to Mexico by U.S. immigration authorities. "One day, my father didn't come home," remembers Torres, who lived with his family in a mining camp in Arizona at the time. "My brother and I were left without a father. We never saw him again." Torres, 85, who went on to become a congressman representing the Pico Rivera area, was part of a generation of people whose lives were changed dramatically by large-scale deportation campaigns during the 1930s, '40s and '50s in which millions of Mexican nationals were rounded up...

    Less than three months before the kick-off Iowa caucuses, there is growing anxiety bordering on panic among Republican elites about the dominance and durability of Donald Trump and Ben Carson and widespread bewilderment over how to defeat them. Party leaders and donors fear nominating either man would have negative ramifications for the GOP ticket up and down the ballot, virtually ensuring a Hillary Rodham Clinton presidency and increasing the odds that the Senate falls into Democratic hands.

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: On this program yesterday after the Republican debate, you know Trump was talking about Eisenhower and how he deported a million and a half, and I added to that news. RUSH ARCHIVE: Trump was entirely correct to point out the history, what Eisenhower did. And I don't think Trump went far enough, actually. In reality, Harry Truman, another Democrat president, deported illegal aliens, over 3.4 million. Did you know that? You did not know about Harry Truman? Well, then I'm happy to be able to inform you. RUSH: Last night, Trump was on The O'Reilly Factor, and...

    President Obama on Thursday slammed Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump’s latest controversial plan to crack down on illegal immigration. “The notion that we’re gonna deport 11, 12 million people from this country — first of all, I have no idea where Mr. Trump thinks the money’s gonna come from," Obama said in an interview with ABC News's George Stephanopoulos. "It would cost us hundreds of billions of dollars to execute that." Obama’s rebuke came after Trump raised the possibility of creating a “deportation force” to remove immigrants living in the U.S. illegally. “Imagine the images on the screen flashed around the world...

    This week’s Republican debate was a good one, but as usual it produced the typical rounds of harrumphing among media critics who disagree with conservative principles on any number of policy points. One of the more bitterly argued ones this week has been the reemergence of Donald Trump’s various plans for doing something about the illegal immigrant problem which has been engulfing the nation for far too long. Chief in point during this round as been, yet again, Trump’s plan to deport illegal immigrants in large numbers and build a wall to staunch the flow into the country. Some...

    This is not the first time the US has dealt with an illegal immigration problem. Only last time it was dealt with in a decidedly swifter and sterner manner. The response, coordinated by President Dwight Eisenhower, resulted in nearly 3 million illegal immigrants being sent home. During his administration, Eisenhower became the first American president forced to deal with problems stemming from illegal immigration. Only, in Eisenhower s time the politically correct culture of liberal sensitivities had yet to emerge. There was not much in the way of sympathy for those who had crossed into the country illegally. Eisenhower told...

    Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz said the November 2016 general election will turn on the question of amnesty for undocumented immigrants in November, and described himself as the lone candidate able to unite various factions of conservative Republicans. At a press conference after officially registering for the New Hampshire primary, Mr. Cruz said that “millions” of Republicans will stay home in November if they believe the GOP nominee is soft on immigration, particularly working-class voters who he says would see amnesty for undocumented immigrants as a threat to their ability to find well-paying work. “There is a real socioeconomic divide,”...
