  • Ron Paul warns E-Verify threatens us all

    ... Some supporters of E-Verify deny the program poses any threat to civil liberties, as it will only be used to verify citizenship or legal residency. They even claim a system forcing individuals to have their identities certified by the government is not a national ID system. These individuals are ignoring the history of government programs sold as only affecting a particular group or being used for a limited purpose being expanded beyond initial targets. For example, Americans were promised that only the wealthiest Americans would ever pay income taxes. And some of the PATRIOT Act’s worst provisions that we...
  • Trump's Wall Should Be a Bargaining Chip on Immigration

    The Democrats' crusade to force a government shutdown in order to win permanent protections for "Dreamers" went down in flames Monday. The price extracted by Democrats was meager compared to what they wanted. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) merely agreed to allow a floor debate on immigration (which McConnell said he'd have done anyway). But this compromise does guarantee that we will now get a "clean" immigration debate, and therein lies an opportunity for a big win -- though President Trump may not like it. Last week, White House Chief of Staff John Kelly reportedly angered the president in...

    Calling proposed immigration reform legislation “devastating” to Western Growers members, association president and CEO Tom Nassif alerted members that the group will work to stop it from becoming law. The immigration reform package, the Secure America’s Future Act, was authored by House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va. House leaders passed a continuing resolution on Jan. 18 that will fund the government for another four weeks. Facing a midnight deadline Jan. 19, the Senate had still not passed any bill to keep the government operating. According to Nassif, the House passage of the continuing resolution included a commitment to vote on...

    America can't be great again if America is going to slip beneath the waves of a migration tsunami. This is a plea to President Trump to stand by his promises and avoid the amnesty trap that the Progressives are trying to lure him into. Instead lead the congressional forces of those who want to make America great again. Use every tool, every power you have to enact the following: 1. Ending chain migration and the visa lottery 2. Mandating employer use of E-Verify 3. Construction of a southern border wall
  • What Republicans must demand from Democrats before even considering a DACA deal

    Washington Examiner ^ | Dec 26, 2017 | Steve Levy
    Conventional wisdom says that Democrats hold all the cards when it comes to the upcoming debate on Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals. The reality, however, is that former President Barack Obama’s illegal edict to legalize undocumented youth will automatically expire in March, meaning it will be the Democrats who will be scrambling for votes to save it. Consequently, all the Republicans have to do is sit back and make a list of the demands Democrats will have to compromise on if Democrats wish to keep DACA alive. This presupposes, of course, that Republicans can act like conservatives and not like...
  • ‘Ruled Out’: GOP Amnesty Plan Excludes E-Verify, ... Employers to Continue Hiring Illegal Aliens

    Senate Republicans crafting legislation to give amnesty to millions of illegal aliens have entirely “ruled out” including the popular initiative to mandate that employers use E-Verify, a system that weeds out illegal aliens from taking American jobs. As Breitbart News reported, the group of GOP senators is seeking to give permanent amnesty to an estimated 800,000 to 3.3 million eligible illegal aliens, the majority of which are shielded from deportation by the Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. At the same time, a major pro-American immigration priority for President Trump’s administration, mandatory E-Verify — which prevents employers from...

    How should we apportion blame on this one? Show of hands: Does anyone think Pelosi and Schumer would agree to an enforcement measure as useful as E-Verify for an amnesty as limited as a DREAM bill? E-Verify won’t be put on the table by Democrats unless and until a mass amnesty for all adult illegals is on the table too. There’s no point in the GOP insisting on a demand they know the other party won’t accept if they’re serious about getting a deal done. A “minor” amnesty gets only “minor” enforcement improvements in return.On the other hand, show...

    U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement is prepared to criminally prosecute illegal immigrants in the workplace, as well as those employers who hire them."While we focus on the criminal prosecution of employers who knowingly hire illegal workers, under the current administration's enforcement priorities, workers encountered during these investigations who are unauthorized to remain in the United States are also subject to administrative arrest and removal from the country," ICE spokeswoman Danielle Bennett said in an email to the Washington Examiner.This week, acting ICE Director Thomas Homan said his agency will increase workplace immigration enforcement effort four to five times the level...

    Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) suggested during a hearing yesterday that a deal to give amnesty to roughly 800,000 illegal aliens shielded by an Obama-created program could be reached if it includes more border security and mandatory E-Verify. Grassley, considered an ally to President Trump’s populist, economic nationalist, “America First” agenda, said during the Senate hearing that any deal to give amnesty and a pathway to U.S. citzenship to the hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens protected by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program must include more security at the U.S.-Mexico border. “First and foremost, any...

    Widening earlier claims of immigration fraud at the Tesla factory, a recently unsealed whistleblower suit says several other major automakers, including Mercedes-Benz, BMW and Volkswagen, illegally used foreign construction workers to build their U.S. factories. The charges expand on an investigation by this news organization last year into foreign construction workers building Tesla’s paint shop in Fremont. The federal suit charges that the carmakers used hundreds of Eastern European workers on suspect visas hired through subcontractors for the German company Eisenmann. The investigation, “The Hidden Workforce Expanding Tesla’s Factory,” and court documents revealed at least 140 foreign workers on questionable...

    The lower number of illegal aliens crossing the southern border is good news, but the numbers remain too high. (Technically, any number greater than zero is too high, but we’re still nowhere near zero.) Despite increased activity in the deportation department and tough messaging from Washington, there are still jobs waiting for many illegal aliens and that makes the trip across the border worth the risk.The LA Times (of all places) has a sobering article about why we’re not making more progress in cutting off this incentive for illegal border crossings. In short, the E-Verify system is full of...

    The rapidly escalating tollway fines that have left some Texans owing thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars could be a thing of the past, based on an amendment that surprisingly found its way into a Texas Department of Transportation bill this week. But the impact to your pocketbook would depend on which tollway you’re driving. Under the amendment, a car owner who has driven on a tollway without paying — even hundreds of times — would owe at most $73 in fines every six months, plus the unpaid tolls. But that change, proposed by Rep. Ina Minjarez, D-San...

    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...

    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). Cafaro teaches philosophy at Colorado State University in Fort Collins. He has amassed a multitude of research on the subject, much of it on display in...
