    An unlicensed illegal alien from Honduras caused massive casualties in bus crash. ABC News Reported: Two people were killed and 41 were injured when a charter bus driven by a man without a license who is in the U.S. illegally crashed into vehicles at the scene of a previous minor accident on Interstate 10 near La Place, according to the Louisiana State Police. One of the people killed was a district fire chief from the St. John the Baptist Fire Department, Louisiana State Police Trooper Melissa Matey said. The bus driver, Denis Yasmir Amaya Rodriguez, is from the Honduras and...
  • New North Carolina bill establishes the opposite of sanctuary cities

    If North Carolina was tired of all the controversy surrounding HB2 there’s no better way to move the conversation than by passing yet another bill which gets liberals up in arms. That seems to be what’s happening with the passage of HB100, an addition to the existing Protect North Carolina Workers Act. This legislation is aimed at weeding out illegal immigrants and ensuring that jobs go to citizens rather than paving the way further for law breakers, while putting penalties in place for any nascent “sanctuary cities” that don’t comply. An article by Tanvi Misra at Route Fifty exemplifies the...

    Advocates for mass-migration are using skewed financial claims to smear Donald Trump’s popular border proposals, which actually would help the near-bankrupt Social Security and Medicare programs. For every illegal migrant household that leaves the United States under Trump’s plan, Americans would recoup nearly three-quarters of a million dollars ($719,350), according to 2010 data collected by Heritage scholar Robert Rector. But business interests want the migrants to stay. That’s because migrants help lower the cost of Americans’ wages, but also because the migrants spend their wages — plus taxpayer aid — at retail stories and rental agencies. For example, the American...

    Believe it or not there is actual evidence that illegal immigration does depress wages for the native-born but you are not likely to hear about it in the multitude of classes that touch on various “diasporas.” “In studies at meat-packing plants, when illegal immigrants are taken out, wages went up,” Professor Philip Cafaro pointed out in a panel discussion at the National Press Club last Thursday sponsored by the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS).

Now, we have learned that the Department of Justice is actively targeting businesses and punishing them for trying to verify an employee’s residency status! That’s right, the DOJ has fined Culinaire International – a restaurant-management company – more than $20,000 because the business had the gall to ask employees to provide proof of legal residency in the United States! In this case, this company sought to...
  • Hagan Now Silent After Rubber-Stamping Obama’s Failed Open Border Policies

    With the nation’s illegal immigration crisis making headlines, Kay Hagan has remained completely silent in a not-so-subtle attempt to avoid drawing attention to her disastrous record on border security. Despite promising North Carolinians that she would “crackdown” on illegal immigration during her 2008 U.S. Senate campaign, Hagan went to Washington and became a rubber-stamp for President Obama’s failed open border policies that have exacerbated the nation’s illegal immigration problems. In the U.S. Senate, Hagan has repeatedly opposed attempts to secure the border. In 2009, Hagan voted against requiring the completion of a 700-mile southern border fence to restrain the flow...

    Wall Street Journal ^ | 08/03/2013 | John Cochrane
    Massive border security and E-Verify are central provisions of the Senate immigration bill, and they are supported by many in the House. Both provisions signal how wrong-headed much of the immigration-reform effort has become. E-Verify is the real monster. If this part of the bill passes, all employers will be forced to use the government-run, Web-based system that checks potential employees' immigration status. That means, every American will have to obtain the federal government's prior approval in order to earn a living. E-Verify might seem harmless now, but missions always creep and bureaucracies expand. Suppose that someone convicted of viewing...

    From massive NSA spying, to IRS targeting of the administration's political opponents, to collection and sharing of our health care information as part of Obamacare, it seems every day we learn of another assault on our privacy. Sadly, this week the Senate took another significant, if little-noticed, step toward creating an authoritarian surveillance state. Buried in the immigration bill is a national identification system called mandatory E-Verify. The Senate did not spend much time discussing E-Verify, and what little discussion took place was mostly bipartisan praise for its effectiveness as a tool for preventing illegal immigrants from obtaining employment. It...

    Immigration reform is notoriously contentious. Yet it's hard to find anyone who doesn't think employers should be barred from hiring illegal immigrants — and sharply penalized if they do so. When President Obama last week endorsed what he called the "common-sense, bipartisan" immigration package now before the Senate, he praised it for getting tough on "shady employers" who "knowingly hire undocumented workers." The White House website devotes an entire page to workplace enforcement of immigration restrictions. It leads off with the president's call for "cracking down more forcefully" on companies that employ undocumented aliens, and boasts that his administration has...

    Yet another glitch seems to be popping up in the immigration reform debate, and I’ll confess that I really didn’t see this one coming. One portion of the proposal regards expanding – and making mandatory in a variety of cases – the use of the E-Verify system. This would ensure that employers were making use of the system to screen out illegal immigrants when hiring. But if it applies to immigrants, in the opinion of some observers, it winds up applying to everyone. And that could lead to the equivalent of a national ID database. “Over time, this could become...

The Keeping the Promise of IRCA Act would: •Require all employers to use E-Verify within 2 years •Require all employers...

But Paul differs from many Republicans, and some Democrats, on employment verification. Paul singled out E-Verify, an already-existing federal effort to check employment status. It's considered necessary by many to ensure businesses aren't hiring workers they shouldn't, but it's also criticized as cumbersome for employers and too likely to give false...

    In the upcoming presidential election, two issues are more important than any others: repealing Obamacare and halting illegal immigration. If we fail at either one, the country will be changed permanently. Taxes can be raised and lowered. Regulations can be removed (though they rarely are). Attorneys general and Cabinet members can be fired. Laws can be repealed. Even Supreme Court justices eventually die. But capitulate on illegal immigration, and the entire country will have the electorate of California. There will be no turning back. Similarly, if Obamacare isn't repealed in the next few years, it never will be.

Lamar Smith (R-Texas) has drummed up some support to pass a federal version in Congress that would require all employers to use the government's E-Verify database to ensure their employees are authorized to work--or risk losing their business license. Arizona provides a case study for the effects of a tough E-Verify law on the labor market.

    For years, activists against illegal immigration pushed cities across California to adopt ordinances ordering businesses to verify that their employees were eligible to work in the U.S. snip But those victories appear to have been wiped out this month with legislation signed into law that prohibits the state, cities and counties from mandating that private employers use E-Verify. snip Those who sought the state law in reaction to the growing number of localities adopting mandatory E-Verify rules said such moves were a distraction from a larger problem. "As a nation, we are in such desperate need of immigration reform," said...

    Rick Perry can't get out of his own way. During the presidential debates, he has reviled three immigration issues that Republicans hold dear: passing mandatory E-Verify legislation, rejecting federal and state versions of the DREAM Act, and building a border fence.

    September 24th, 2011 To: Barack H. Obama 1600 Pennsylvania Ave NW Washington, DC 20500 RE: Social Security Administration Notice of Mismatch Letter Dear. Mr. Obama, Currently, the Immigration Reform and Control Act (1986) require employers, by law, to establish that their employees are eligible to work in the United States. The Form I-9 was developed for verifying that persons are eligible to work in the United States. Employers are required by law to have employees hired after November 6, 1986 fill out Section 1 of the Form I-9 when they start to work. Section 1 of Form I-9 asks for...

    Opponents of a border fence (e.g. Rick Perry) say we shouldn’t build it because what’s needed is a program to turn off the “jobs magnet” that encourages illegal immigrants to try to cross the border in the first place. OK. It turns out there is at least one such program–it’s called E-Verify, and it checks the info supplied by job applicants against a national database of Social Security numbers, etc. , alerting employers if they are about to hire someone who seems to be in the country illegally. Needless to say, the same people who oppose a border fence also...

    The Washington Times ^ | September 22, 2011 | Stephen Dinan
    House Republicans on Wednesday jump-started the immigration debate, pushing through the Judiciary Committee a key immigration-enforcement measure to require businesses to check new employees’ work status against a government database — (The) bill would invalidate those (however, those state and local) laws, which prompted Democrats to accuse Republicans of overriding states’ rights. “Until we step up and do the job, I don’t think we should be pre-empting anybody trying to deal with this issue,”

  • How To Fix Our Illegal Immigration Problem In 5 Steps

    09/20/2011 4:22:01 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 34 replies · 1+ views ^ | September 20, 2011 | John Hawkins
    Illegal immigration has become a heads-we-win / tails-you-lose proposition in this country. If the supporters of amnesty and open borders could get that codified into law, they would. Since they can't, they support comprehensive illegal immigration reform, with the idea being that the amnesty will occur, but they'll stall and slow-walk the security measures into oblivion. Since the people are onto that ploy and have demanded security first, the latest tactic is just to refuse to enforce the law. We can pass a bill that says we're putting a fence on our southern border, but we can't get the fence...

    September 14, 2011 This is a clarion call. A call to Americans of every creed and race to resist the flagrant violation of our Constitution and the rule of law by Barack Obama and all of those who are complicit with him. The people charged with the authority and responsibility to uphold the law and defend the Constitution are missing in action. Cleary it is up to "we the people". We could have stopped it at the ballot box (well...maybe) but this is the mess we are in now and we have to deal with it. After three years I...
