    Lindsey Graham just proved how out of touch he is with the Republican Party. The so-called ‘Republican’ just challenged the voters to vote him out if they are against illegal immigration. “To the people who object to this, I don’t want you to vote for me because I cannot serve you well,” said Graham during a press conference. “The key here is to be fair to the 11 million [illegal immigrants], starting with the ‘Dreamers,’ but convince people we’re going to do what our great friend Ronald Reagan was not able to do, we’re going to actually secure the border,...

    More than 500 Stanford University students, faculty and staff members walked out of classrooms and ducked out of jobs Tuesday in a protest of the policies of Donald Trump, the latest in a wave of Bay Area and national demonstrations against the president-elect. Some of the Stanford dissidents, though, came with a concrete demand for the university’s administrators: investigating the possibility of the South Bay campus serving as a sanctuary against the sort of millions of deportations Trump has said he’ll seek as president. Hundreds of people — students, faculty, staff and other supporters — had as of Tuesday evening...

    Illinois Review ^ | May 2, 2016
    Monday, May 02, 2016 Taxpayer-funded financial aid for immigrant college tuition heads to IL House SPRINGFIELD - Two Republican state senators - Christine Radogno and Chris Nybo - crossed the aisle last week to support the Democrats' effort to provide taxpayer-funded financial assistance for undocumented immigrant students. The measure would add Illinois to the five states that grant immigrant students financial aid for college education regardless of their legal status. Already, Illinois is one of 18 states that allows any status immigrants to qualify for lower in-state tuition and set up private college funds. SB 2196 easily passed the Illinois...

    Sheriff Charles Jenkins testifies before the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security. (screen grab) (CNSNews.com) - In testimony before Congress Tuesday, a Maryland Sheriff said the administration’s executive actions delaying deportation of illegals is resulting in a spike of crime. “Case by case amnesty, back door amnesty, DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) programs, and the Dream Act were pushed through by executive order,” Frederick County Md. Sheriff Charles Jenkins said on Tuesday. “Policy shifts by President Obama weakened and ruined Secure Communities, and did not allow action by ICE when Sheriffs and police departments ignored detainers,...

    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.”...

    Given the opportunity to get to the White House, presidential candidate Jeb Bush would fight to grant Dreamers a path to citizenship while working to fix the broken immigration system in America. “I, as President, I would go to congress and change the law to give them not a residency but citizenship,” Bush said in Spanish during a meeting attended by this writer.

    Based on Senate Hearings on proposing the 14th Amendment | 8-27-2015 | Dangus
    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. This will not of course include persons born...

  • Republicans hope moderate Joe Heck can woo Latino voters in Nevada (Heck?? No!!!)

    With Nevada Rep. Joe Heck declaring his intention to run for the soon-to-be-vacant Senate seat once Harry Reid retires, the Republican Party finally feels like they’ve got a candidate in the Silver state who can fill that position. 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...

    With the Senate tied in knots over a House-passed bill that would fund the Department of Homeland Security while simultaneously blocking President Obama’s executive actions on immigration, a nearly two-year-old video was released that shows leading GOP presidential candidate Jeb Bush explicitly contradicting a key Republican position on providing illegal immigrants a path to citizenship. First reported by CNN, the video shows Bush at an appearance at an event sponsored by the Hispanic Leadership Network in April 2013. Bush was asked about his position on a Senate immigration reform bill and, specifically, on offering citizenship to people brought to the...
