  • Homeland Security Working Overtime to Add ‘New Americans’ by 2016 Election

    P.J. Media ^ | April 23, 2015 | J. Christian Adams
    Sources at the Department of Homeland Security report to PJ Media that the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services is reallocating significant resources to sending letters to all 9,000,000 green card holders urging them to naturalize prior to the 2016 election. President Obama’s amnesty by edict has always been about adding new Democrats to the voter rolls, and recent action by the Department of Homeland Security provides further proof. Sources at the Department of Homeland Security report to PJ Media that the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services is reallocating significant resources away from a computer system — the “Electronic...

    NASHVILLE -- As the Tennessee House debated a bill Wednesday that could determine whether he can eventually afford college, 15-year-old Carlos Reyes was in the balcony. In the end, the bill to allow some undocumented students to pay in-state tuition at state colleges and universities failed by one vote, 49-47. Fifty votes were needed to approve the bill, which had passed in the Senate. The measure is dead until next year. "It does make me feel kind of upset," said Reyes, a high school student from Murfreesboro whose parents brought him illegally to the U.S. "I really hope they pass...

    American opposition to the Obama administration and GOP establishment’s extremist immigration policies is boiling at an all-time high, a broad survey of polls shows. Sixty percent of Americans are displeased with the current levels of immigration, according to Gallup—a decline from 72 percent in 2008, when the country plunged into a recession, but an increase of six percent from 2014. The majority of adults Gallup polled, 39 percent in a plurality, said they wanted to see immigration levels decrease. Gallup presents these numbers through a partisan filter as “fodder” for Republicans, discomforted as they are by the results. According to...

    More than a thousand migrants have died attempting to get into Europe over the past week, including 900 who perished horribly, trapped in the hold of a Tunisian ship near the Libyan coast. Many thousands have died before and many thousands will die in the near future attempting the same venture unless we in Europe change our policies. Everybody is agreed that something has to be done.For the liberal left, the answer is to sack Katie Hopkins, a fellow columnist of mine at the Sun. Not just sack her but also prosecute her and prosecute the editor of the Sun....

    Katie Hopkins has said she ‘doesn’t care’ about migrants dying while trying to leave their countries by boat. The motor-mouth says that even if she was shown “coffins and bodies floating in water” she would not be moved – it is instead the British lorry drivers she feels sorry for. Her comments, in her latest column for the Sun, come following harrowing reports over the last couple of days of migrant deaths at sea. Katie went to say she believes the UK should "get Australian" in the way they deal with immigration because “they threaten them with violence until they...
  • ‘Undocumented Immigrant Not a Criminal’ Proclaims CA Chief Law Officer Kamala Harris

    Breitbart California ^ | April 18, 2015 | Michelle Moons
    California’s chief law officer, Attorney General Kamala Harris, declared this week, “an undocumented immigrant is not a criminal,” a statement in direct contradiction to federal law. Illegally entering and remaining in the country is a federal crime. By stating that those who illegally enter or remain in the United States are not in violation of law is simply incorrect. However, many of these “undocumented immigrants” are not being prosecuted under the current administration. Last November, President Obama declared effective amnesty for an estimated five million illegally present aliens. Since then, Representative Luis Gutierrez has traveled the country, partnering with fellow...

    A group of 10 undocumented women will start a partial hunger strike this Tuesday to protest against their detention at a center that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has in Karnes City, Texas, according to a non-profit organization which provides legal representation to some of the facility's detainees. During a conference call held this morning, Mohammad Abdollahi, member and one of the spokespersons of the Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services (RAICES), said the women, who have their children with them, "are gonna have one meal a day each evening (during a week), however they are gonna...

    There was something bracingly honest about an op-ed article in The Washington Post last week by Senator Jeff Sessions, an Alabama Republican. Under the headline “America Needs to Curb Immigration Flows,” Mr. Sessions, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary’s immigration subcommittee, argued the case for letting in fewer foreigners. Mr. Sessions, ditching the usual Republican talking points on immigration, choosing instead to echo an uglier time in our history, when nativists wielded the spurious argument that the more immigrants taken in by America, the worse off America is. He’s advocating for “slowing the pace” of legal immigration, supposedly to increase...

    As the Obama administration prepares for a new surge of illegal immigrant children this year, some of those from previous waves are turning up on court dockets across the country, charged with serious crimes such as capital murder and aggravated rape. The cases are exposing many of the holes in the immigration system and the way the U.S. has tried to grapple with children fleeing economic troubles, domestic abuse or gang violence in Central America — and sometimes bringing those very troubles to the U.S. with them. “The eagerness of the administration to open our borders is not without consequence,”...

    The Tuition Equality Act of 2013 was supposed to help young people convert their noblest aspirations into practical realities. Particularly the so-called DREAMers: At last, higher education would be within the reach of these undocumented immigrants, thanks to a prudent government decision which allowed them to pay in-state tuition rates. But it has turned out to be a false promise and phony premise. Gov. Christie vetoed the part of the law that would have granted these unauthorized students the same financial aid received by other New Jersey students, so most of them are out of luck - and in a...

    Tufts University announced Tuesday it will “proactively and openly” recruit undocumented students and offer financial aid to eligible students, a clear declaration that immigration advocates hailed as a significant victory. Under the new policy, the private university will consider all students in the country illegally as regular domestic applicants, eligible for the same university aid as US citizens. Because undocumented students are ineligible for federal financial aid, the university will make up the difference out of its own funds for students who cannot afford to pay their own way. The Tufts policy applies to all undocumented students, not just those...

    The American Civil Liberties Union wants religious organizations to provide abortions to illegal immigrant children. The ACLU is petitioning for a court order that would force the U.S. government to release documents related to their dealings with religious organizations that assist illegals. “Many unaccompanied teenagers come into the U.S. fleeing abuse and torture in their home countries. Many have been sexually abused or assaulted or forced into prostitution,” Brigitte Amiri, an attorney with the ACLU Reproductive Freedom Project, said. “We believe deeply in religious freedom. But religious freedom does not include the right to take a government contract that requires...

Nearly 10 hours earlier, when the hearing on Senate Bill 1819 started, the vote was a foregone conclusion: In a 2-1 party-line vote, GOP lawmakers on the panel approved the controversial bill that would strip undocumented students from any right to pay in-state tuition at a public Texas college. Sen. Donna Campbell’s proposal now moves to the Senate’s full Veterans Affairs and Military Installations Committee, where it undoubtedly will pass. Given the large Republican majority...

The effort is designed to reach, mobilize and organize immigrant workers in their workplaces and in their communities.

    To listen to talk radio and cable television, which are dominated by conservatives, the national and state debates over immigration give the impression that most legal residents of the state of California oppose immigrant workers here illegally and might even be favorably disposed to Mitt Romney's suggestion that they "self-deport." As it turns out, however, the voices of anti-immigration forces are disproportionately louder than their actual numbers. A new poll of likely California voters shows that a whopping 73% support granting citizenship to immigrants here illegally if they agreed to pay back taxes, pass a background check and learn the...

Natacha Bouchart accused the British government of “despising” the native population of Calais and said the UK should be forced to sign up to Europe’s open borders agreement. Miss Bouchart intensified her war of words with Britain as the French port struggles to cope with thousands of illegal immigrants, mainly from African countries, who have gathered in the town to attempt illegal crossings into this country. She repeated previous...

    Driver’s licenses for illegal immigrants are under discussion at the Minnesota Legislature — again. Previous attempts to allow the undocumented to drive legally have failed, but this year the measure should pass. As public safety officials have argued for years, the change would make roads safer. Opponents of the proposal say that the licenses would enable voter fraud, cause homeland security risks and reward those who have already broken immigration law. However, in this case public safety interests trump other concerns. The driver’s license dilemma is yet another result of America’s broken, outdated, schizophrenic immigration policies. The honest reality is...

The Pew Research Center released a study Thursday that uses U.S. census and other government data to examine labor trends among undocumented workers nationally. It included a variety of state-by-state information. It estimates that 31 percent of the farmworkers in Utah in 2012 were undocumented immigrants, as were 17 percent of all construction workers. Randy Parker, CEO of the Utah Farm Bureau Federation, says the numbers are surprising at first, but may be close to...

In addition, under an executive action by President Obama last year, Medi-Cal coverage could be extended to up to 500,000 undocumented immigrants who have lived in the U.S. for at least five years and who have no record of felony offenses or serious misdemeanors. Further, a bill (SB 1005)...

The California Transplant Donor Network says undocumented immigrants may have caused a 30% spike in the state’s organ and tissue donor registrations so far this year. The immigrant drivers, many of whom are from Mexico, also could boost numbers of Hispanics on the donor registry who are more likely to match with Hispanics waiting for transplants, the network says.

The legislation also leaves intact Obama administration executive actions on immigration that Republicans have vowed to overturn.

An early vote in the House clearing the way for final passage of the bill was approved easily, 240-183. [snip] "I am not going to vote under any circumstances to fund illegal conduct," said Rep.

    The old adage that says “Crime Doesn’t Pay” is no longer operable. Illegal aliens who have invaded the country will be the beneficiaries of your tax dollars once their work permits and Social Security cards are approved. The IRS in their infinite wisdom (My tongue is planted firmly in my cheek) has decided that illegal aliens will be able to collect a fortune from US taxpayers even though they haven’t paid a penny in taxes themselves. A family of three would be eligible for just over $35,000. It’s bad enough that these criminals are allowed to stay here against duly...

    MONTPELIER, Vt. — An investigation into fraudulent applications for Vermont’s driver’s privilege cards has spread to multiple states and Department of Motor Vehicle branches, according to the department’s chief investigator. When the Department of Motor Vehicles first reported receiving a rash of driver’s license applications from out-of-state illegal immigrants, it appeared the problem might be limited to a single license branch and involve one other state.
  • Judge delays Feds’ Immigration Emergency Stay Motion to next week

    Yesterday the U.S. government filed an Emergency motion to stay the U.S. District Court’s temporary injunction putting Obama’s immigration executive action on hold. In its Emergency Motion, the Feds threatened that if U.S. District Court Judge Andrew S. Hanen did not grant the stay by the close of business on Wednesday, February 25, the Feds would seek an emergency stay from the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals.

    The last few weeks have raised a critical question for all Americans: Is the liberal elite unbelievably dumb or unbelievably cynical? Do our over-credentialed, under-educated, would-be betters actually believe the bullstuff they are shoveling, or do they really think that we normal Americans are so stupid that they can lie to our faces and we will just take it? I’m guessing Door Number Two. Liberals know they are full of it; they just think the rest of us are as foolish as the welfare-guzzling mouth-breathers who vote for them. It’s time for the lies to stop. Liberals, stop lying about...

  • In Obama administration's legal fight on immigration, time is an adversary

    In his fight to help millions of immigrants living in the country illegally, President Obama’s most implacable enemy may not be House Republicans or conservative governors, but the ticking clock. A lengthy battle in a Texas court case could prove fatal for his plans to provide a temporary haven for up to 5 million people in the U.S. illegally. If the legal fight continues into next year, it will be difficult if not impossible for officials to process millions of applications before Obama leaves office. The more people it can shield from the threat of deportation, the administration theorizes, the...

    RUSH: Poor immigrants. Folks, it's just bad out there. "Immigrants in US Feel Stuck After Judge Blocks Obama Orders." This is a tear-stained AP story. "Brenda Armendariz, her husband and their two Mexico-born children were hoping to resolve their constant fears of being deported after President Barack Obama issued his latest executive orders on immigration. Thanks to Obama's executive orders, if none of the family members are convicted murderers or rapists they have no need to worry about deportation, and they probably don't have any worries even if they are. "But now that a federal judge in Texas has blocked...

    While a federal judge’s injunction has halted the implementation of President Obama’s sweeping executive actions from November, it appears U.S. Customs and Border Protection never got the news. According to CBP Commissioner Gil Kerlikowske, the relaxed border enforcement guidelines that accompanied Obama’s executive actions should continue apace, unaffected by the judge’s ruling. In an email sent to CBP agents on Wednesday and later obtained by NRO, Kerlikowske conceded that the federal judge’s action meant agents “should not consider” Obama’s new and expanded deferred action guidelines when processing illegal immigrants. But border protection and enforcement are apparently a different matter. Kerlikowske’s...

    CARSON CITY, NEV. – A bill that would make it easier for immigrants with temporary legal status to get a Nevada teaching license has passed its first legislative hurdle. The bill could affect students who have work permits also known as DACA recipients or DREAMers. Existing law allows the state superintendent to give a teaching license to someone who is not a citizen but has a work permit only if there's a teacher shortage for a subject the person can teach. Otherwise, applicants must be a citizen or legal resident. The bill would allow those immigrants to get a teaching...

    Still formulating a legal response to a federal judge’s ruling that blocked the implementation of President Obama’s executive actions on immigration, the White House on Wednesday was offering reporters no guess on how long that delay might last – or when the Obama Administration would be in court to challenge it. “Our legal strategy going forward is something that’s going to be determined by the Department of Justice,” said White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest. sterr “But that strategy will certainly include an appeal of this ruling because we don’t believe that it’s a fair, accurate reading of the law,”...

    The judge [Hanen] sealed his case that the administration’s immigration action is not merely an act of discretion, but a change in the law itself, by quoting Obama himself. “What is perhaps most perplexing about the defendant’s claim that DAPA is merely ‘guidance’ is the president’s own labeling of the program,” said the judge. “In formally announcing DAPA to the nation for the first time, President Obama stated, ‘I just took an action to change the law.’” The Constitution, of course, does not give Obama the power to change the law.

    Back up the shredders — the Tea Party could be coming. The city’s new municipal- ID program allows for personal info provided by applicants to be destroyed at the end of 2016, in case a conservative Republican wins the White House and demands the data, the law’s co-sponsor told The Post on Monday. City Councilman Carlos Menchaca (D-Brooklyn) said the measure was crafted so data submitted by those seeking the cards can be destroyed on Dec. 31, 2016. The cards are aimed at undocumented immigrants. “In case a Tea Party Republican comes into office and says, ‘We want all of...
