  • Why It Should Be Americans First?

    The number of Democrats supporting the "Dreamers" - illegal immigrants brought here as children - will never admit/accept the fact that they are supporting criminals. Ignorance of a law does not exempt you from it. But then you have the fact that there are a number of people who do not seem to understand why there is such a growing sentiment to fix - I would actually say solve - the illegal immigration issue. I pulled these headlines from a single news source this morning. 33 pounds of fentanyl – enough to wipe out Massachusetts – seized in Boston
  • Trump: The Schumer-Rounds-Collins immigration bill would be a total catastrophe.

    The Schumer-Rounds-Collins immigration bill would be a total catastrophe. @DHSgov says it would be “the end of immigration enforcement in America.” It creates a giant amnesty (including for dangerous criminals), doesn’t build the wall, expands chain migration, keeps the visa... lottery, continues deadly catch-and-release, and bars enforcement even for FUTURE illegal immigrants. Voting for this amendment would be a vote AGAINST law enforcement, and a vote FOR open borders. If Dems are actually serious about DACA, they should support the Grassley bill!

    So while this article itself is old, the issue is not. In the Mass Legislature HB 388 is a real bill that would give illegal immigrants the right to vote in local elections. Here are the Democrats listed as Co-Sponsors - there are probably more Democrats that support this bill but are not co-sponsors. Rep. Byron Rushing [D] Rep. Denise Provost [D] Rep.

    Former President George W. Bush was supportive of the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program Thursday, as he told an audience at a summit in Abu Dhabi that the U.S. needs to “welcome” them. Beyond that, he said at the summit hosted by the Milken Institute, a California-based economic think tank, that Americans should be thanking the illegal immigrants for doing jobs they refuse to do. "Americans don’t want to pick cotton at 105 degrees, but there are people who want put food on their family’s tables and are willing to do that,” he said, according to The Associated...

    I have no idea what Nancy Pelosi was flapping her jibs about all day yesterday. Two old bags and a crone walk into a bar…I do know that instead of working with her fellow members of the House to reach a resolution on the DACA/immigration problem she spent the day protesting the impasse. The record-setting 8 hour speech was Nancy’s allocated 1 minute floor time - proving yet again that if you give a Democrat an inch they’ll take a mile.I think Nancy called on Hillary’s Dr. Feelgood before the speech and got one of his magic reanimation shots.

    Alex and Daniela Velez have come to peace with the difficult choice they will need to make if Congress doesn't reach a deal for those covered by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program by its March 5 deadline: They will leave the country. "Alex and I are both over this [DACA situation]," said Daniela, who is 24 years old. "If DACA ends, I will leave with Alex. I will close my business, leave work and school." The Velez sisters are two of nearly 689,000 young adults who are currently protected from deportation under DACA. The Obama-era program allowed young...

    Edwin Jackson was a walk-on at Georgia Southern, developed into an all-conference talent, then became an NFL starter with Indianapolis. He made the AllState Good Works Team as a college senior for the time he spent volunteering at a local school. On Saturday night he was in the back of an Uber when he asked the driver to pull over because he was feeling sick. Both men got out and were on the shoulder of the road when an F-150 plowed into them, killing both. It was a hit-and-run in the literal sense, as the driver of the Ford left...

    Remittances to Mexico Hit All-Time High Mexican-Americans sent home a record $28.1 billion in remittances in 2017—an increase of 6.6 percent from 2016. Mexico was the largest single destination for remittance payments from America last year, while China was a distant second ($15.4 billion). That being said, Mexico is far from being an outlier. Latin America absorbed roughly half of all America’s remittance outflows, which totaled nearly $140 billion in 2017. Furthermore, over $50 billion in remittances were sent to Mexico and Central America alone: Guatemala received $6.8 billion in remittances, El Salvador $4.2 billion, the Dominican Republic $4.1 billion,...

    As we prepare for the debate over a possible DACA bill, Leo R. Chavez takes to the pages of the L.A. Times this week, not to complain about any of the specific policy initiatives under discussion, but about “the language” we’re using to talk about immigration. Apparently we’re weaponizing the language to make immigrants look bad… or something. It’s a strange line of attack to choose, particularly when it’s been liberals and progressives who have raised the practice of distorting words for their own purposes to an art form. There are clearly plenty of words and phrases to choose from...

    After the State of the Union speech, Ed brought up the President’s reference to victims of MS-13, one of the larger and certainly most bloody gangs in the country. (They’re estimated to have more than 10K members in the U.S. and unknown numbers in other countries.) In predictable fashion, some of Trump’s critics immediately felt the need to disparage the choice, insinuating that the attention given the gang was only meant to gin up hostility toward Latino immigrants. Few, however, were quicker off the mark than MSNBC’s Joy Reid, who took to Twitter during the address to make that point....

    The breadth of the Democratic offensives against Trump agenda initiatives is stunning. The party favorite is calling anything they don’t like racist. You all know this; it’s par for the course for left-wingers. But now they’re retroactively applying that term to things that were never considered racist in the slightest. “Chain migration” is a term demographers have used since the 1960s. It’s not a racist term, but the campaign to make it on the no-no list for political correctness is well underway. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) reiterated the talking point in her Monday appearance on The View (via Free Beacon):...

    Buckle Up!Late Tuesday, the President’s State of the Union address and Democratic response were completed around 11:00 p.m. Eastern, but MSNBC kept it going live until 2:00 a.m. Eastern on Wednesday. While it’s doubtful you stayed up to watch, you missed some mind-numbingly stupid quotes. Whether it’s suggesting Trump has committed treason or ghoulishly laughing about people fearing MS-13 gang violence, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, Joy Reid, and Ron Reagan succeeded in stooping to the lowest of lows. So, here they are (presented in chronological order): 1. Matthews Questions Trump Honoring Families of MS-13 Victims

    President Donald Trump reportedly asked why the U.S. is "having all these people from sh*thole countries come here." I think he could have used better language, but it's a question that should be asked and answered. I have a few questions for my fellow Americans to consider. How many Norwegians have illegally entered our nation, committed crimes and burdened our prison and welfare systems? I might ask the same question about Finnish, Swedish, Welsh, Icelanders, Greenlanders and New Zealanders. The bulk of our immigration problem is with people who enter our country criminally from Mexico, Central America, the Caribbean, Africa...

    Today, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) refuted several White House talking points, saying that increased border security measures were unrealistic and possibly overpriced. Graham told Martha Raddatz while on ABC’s “This Week” that the estimated $25 billion for the southern border wall was too costly and that a “1,900-mile wall” was simply not needed. “We’re not going to build a 1,900-mile wall,” Graham said. ” The $25 billion can be spent wisely because the Gang of Eight bill spent $42 billion to secure the border. So we’re not gonna build a wall in places where it shouldn’t go.” On President Trump’s...

    It has apparently taken the Hollywood world of navel gazers 36 years to notice what most of us have seen for decades: Awful,” was the frank assessment of one studio executive. “Boring,” was the takeaway of another. “Who are these movies for?” griped an influential distributor. Hint: this year’s lineup included not one but two movies about skate boarders, one exclusively girls. After a week of premieres at the Eccles Theatre and the other makeshift movie palaces that line the snowy resort town, buyers complained that the movies in this year’s lineup were chronically weak, leaving them underwhelmed and frequently...

If they end up on campus, we’re not going to cooperate,” Chong said. “We will engage in civil disobedience and I will be willing to go to jail in order to protect the rights of my students.” Chong’s defiant words came during a packed, noontime...

    Bernalillo County was one of 23 jurisdictions across the country that received letters from the U.S. Department of Justice on Wednesday demanding that they turn over policies related to immigration enforcement. The DOJ in the letter to County Commission Chairman Steven Michael Quezada threatened to withhold future law enforcement-related grants and make the county pay back previous grants if it failed to produce documents that would show whether the county is “unlawfully” restricting the information it shares with federal immigration authorities, according to a DOJ news release.

    The government shutdown is over. Democrats finally realized that closing the government over illegal immigration was a losing political battle. They created a needless crisis and got rolled. So who is to blame for their current predicament? Along with Charles Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, Democrats can put the blame squarely on the man who could have legalized the “dreamers” when he had the chance: Barack Obama. During his 2008 campaign, Obama promised in a conversation with Univision anchor Jorge Ramos to make passing immigration reform one of his first legislative priorities, and even set a timetable. “I cannot guarantee that...
