  • Jeb all in for illegal aliens in speech to Hispanic Chamber of Commerce

    GOP USA ^ | 9/22/2015
    An invigorated Jeb Bush defied his party’s lurch to the right over immigration on Monday with a passionate speech to the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, in which he called for a path to legal citizenship for undocumented migrants. Fresh from a presidential debate that saw him criticized for speaking Spanish, lacking energy and having a Mexican wife, the former Florida governor took the jibes from Donald Trump and appeared to feed off them before an audience of business leaders in Houston. “Earned legal status is the dignified way, the practical way, the American way of solving the problem of 12...

    American Thinker ^ | 09/21/2015 | Ed Straker
    Three out of the four leading candidates for the GOP nomination for president are "softliners" on immigration.  Since people who believe in enforcing the law are "hardliners," those who don't must be softliners, right? In this case, depending on what poll you look at, the "softliners" in the second, third, and fourth place spots are either Carson, Carly, and Jeb or Carly, Carson, and Rubio.  Let's take them one at a time. Rubio is Mr. Amnesty.  He authored an amnesty bill for illegals with the "Gang of 8" (which in many ways was twice as bad as the Maoist...

    GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina took a jab at GOP frontrunner Donald Trump during her campaign swing through Iowa, where she said she doesn’t support challenging the Constitution or the 14th amendment, in light of Trump’s immigration plan. “I’ve been very clear I don’t support deportation. I don’t support amending the Constitution or challenging the 14th Amendment,” Fiorina told NBC News on the topic of Trump’s immigration policy. “I think these are ideas that stoke anger but don’t solve problems. I think Donald Trump is stoking anger without solving problems. And I think others, now, are sadly pandering to him.”...

    The chattering class insists that the 14th amendment automatically grants citizenship to children of illegal aliens. They do this by relying on the public's ignorance of the 14th amendment and the obscurity of the meaning of "under the jurisdiction thereof. The author of the 14th amendment was very clear when he proposed it, however: "This amendment, which I have offered is simply declaratory ... that every person born within the United States, and subject to their jurisdiction is by virtue of natural law and national law a citizen of the United States.

    With Nevada Rep.

That is, however, if he can win Nevada’s crucial Latino vote. Heck – a House member, physician and brigadier general in the Army Reserve – has been touted by the GOP as a Latino-friendly candidate who has won three Las Vegas-area congressional elections thanks in large part to his moderate tone toward immigration reform. During the Senate race, observers say that Heck...

Then, the former Florida governor was speaking to a friendly audience of establishment Republicans, after re-inserting himself in the immigration reform with the release of a controversial book on the issue a month prior.

Even so, Edgar Covarrubias-Padilla retained his work permit granted through a program for immigrants brought into the country illegally as children, and his employers say they were not informed of the investigation until shortly before he was arrested May 7. He is charged with possessing and manufacturing child pornography and molesting a child sometime in April -- well after the federal investigation...

    Immigration is a complex problem. So is the long-term question of how the United States should handle the influx of tens of thousands of children from Central America. Beyond the legal mandates, we owe them basic human decency. On the other hand, to say that they should all simply stay here for good begs big questions about encouraging more children to make this journey, and the rights of all the people abroad who are waiting their turn in line. Unless you believe in open borders, it’s all thorny. What seems right for an individual child can seem wrong systemwide. But...

The other, a more urgent priority, would block Obama from expanding DACA. That means no executive amnesty for the Central American children who’ve come here recently (although they could, I assume, still be allowed to stay under asylum laws) and, maybe, no executive amnesty for the five million adult illegals whom O has promised immigration activists he’ll help.Given the post-Romney terror within the GOP leadership over being demagogued as anti-Latino, I wonder if the bills will...

Ci-ti-zen-ship!" shouted one young woman, pumping her flag along as the crowd's rage sizzled....

    Our usurping president is willfully neglecting to enforce the law and even more frightening, he's forcefully forbidding our law enforcement agencies from enforcing the law and rather is enforcing his own "dream act" that he proposed to the congress and congress rejected. President Obama is in fact legislating and enforcing his own law. This cannot be allowed to stand! Our borders are being swamped and overrun by any illegal alien, drug runner, disease carrier, criminal or terrorist that wishes to enter the country. Our nation is being flooded by this illegal alien invasion. And Obama is making it happen. This...

    Immigration: A federal employment ad posted in January showing that 65,000 unaccompanied minors will enter the U.S. illegally shows that the administration expected this cross-border child abuse and encouraged it. Concrete evidence has shown up proving our earlier assertion: The breach of our border by waves of unaccompanied alien children was orchestrated by the administration based on a strategy straight out of the playbook President Obama studied as a community organizer. His goal is to get his way on immigration reform by overwhelming the U.S. Border Patrol and collapsing an already weakened system. The evidence comes in the form a...

    Uncle Sam is putting out an urgent call for a platoon of baby sitters who can help deal with the crushing influx of children illegally crossing the border. With thousands of unaccompanied children making the dangerous trek into the United States from Central America through Mexico, the Bureau of Customs and Border Protection is looking to bring in temporary workers to help process them. The bureau is seeking workers with training in emergency medicine and non-emergency health care, “child care or juvenile teaching and/or counseling,” according to a June agency memo.

    U.S. Sen. John Cornyn, a Republican from Texas, says the United States should provide financial assistance to Mexico to help secure its borders and slow the flow of thousands of immigrants. Cornyn says some 47,000 immigrants have been apprehended along the southwest U.S.-Mexico border this fiscal year, and that the number is expected to exceed 60,000 by the end of September.

    The defeat of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor is likely to significantly chill efforts to pass an immigration reform bill this year. "One of the great founding principles of our country was that children would not be punished for the mistakes of their parents,” Cantor said in a 2013 speech. “It is time to provide an opportunity for legal residence and citizenship for those who were brought to this country as children and who know no other home." Brat told voters he opposes Dream Act legislation. “For Eric Cantor to say he was against amnesty, while promoting it for certain...

    Majority Leader Eric Cantor offered a new explanation for why he supports granting amnesty to individuals brought into the country illegally as minors, often called “DREAMers” in reference to the “DREAM Act.” It's “Biblical,” he said in a local radio interview. “I’ve always said that there’s a Biblical root and a tradition in this country that says we don’t hold children liable for their parents’ acts and when you have kids who may have been brought here let’s say at 2 months old unbeknownst to them and they’ve been here all their lives and they want to serve in our...

    President Obama’s senior White House adviser Valerie Jarrett held a series of meetings with illegal immigrant activists during Obama’s first term and concluded that “They are the best that we have.” Jarrett, a Chicago-era mentor to Obama and wife Michelle, is currently fighting to pass immigration reform legislation, in her words, “this summer.” “I had met, maybe, a year-and-a-half ago, with about Four Dream Act kids,” Jarrett said in a 2012 conversation with Walter Isaacson at the 2012 Aspen Ideas Festival, video of which was posted by The Aspen Institute in 2014.

    House Majority Leader Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA) says he is continuing to try to grant amnesty to illegal alien youths via his GOP version of the DREAM Act, known as the KIDS Act. “We should not be holding kids liable for the acts of their parents,” Cantor said in an interview with the Richmond Times-Dispatch. Bob Rayner, a reporter for the Times-Dispatch, wrote that Cantor described the push for the KIDS Act, something that would reportedly legalize the status of illegal aliens who are somehow determined to have been brought to America by no fault of their own, as a...

    (Reuters) - A Senate panel, responding to what President Barack Obama calls an "urgent humanitarian situation," on Tuesday advanced legislation significantly increasing funds to handle a surge of foreign children entering the United States illegally. Democratic Senator Barbara Mikulski, who chairs the Senate Appropriations Committee, included up to $2.28 billion for the Department of Health and Human Services to feed and shelter the estimated 130,000 minors expected to arrive in the fiscal year that begins on Oct. 1. That is up from the $868 million that Congress urgently provided this year to handle an estimated 60,000 undocumented children who will...

    Illegal immigrants have been pouring into the United States, and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) suggested he is willing to work with President Barack Obama to give them amnesty. Days before what has turned into a contentious June 10 primary against Dave Brat, who has been surging in the polls after centering his campaign on countering amnesty, CBS6 anchor Bill Fitzgerald asked Cantor what the country could do about its illegal immigrants and the children "coming across the border now." Cantor first falsely insinuated that he was not for amnesty because he was against passing the Senate's bill without...
