    NEW DELHI: President Barack Obama has assured Prime Minister Narendra Modi that he will look into India's concerns on the H-1B visa issue as part of his comprehensive immigration reform, US officials said on Monday. Obama told Prime Minister Modi that his administration would be in touch with the Indian government on issues related to H-1B visas, popular among Indian techies. "I think what the President indicated is this is the type of issue (H-1B) that we have approached through the context of comprehensive immigration reform and so, given his ongoing efforts to work with Congress in pursuit of comprehensive...

    Evicted four months ago from their Highland Park apartment, Louis Morales and his 18-year-old stepson, Arthur Valenzuela, live half-hidden by brush along the nearby Arroyo Seco riverbed. Morales, 49, keeps a framed bible verse and a stuffed monkey in his tent. Water hauled by bike from a park heats up on the camp stove. Next door, their friend Johnny Salazar fixes bikes and shattered computer screens on the cheap for people who live in the neighborhood. A brother and sister Morales has known for years live up the river, and three couples stay down by the bridge. "Everybody here is...

    The right-wing firebrand Texas senator, who has been on both sides of the immigration debate, is a lot more complex than he might seem.How “Hispanic” is Ted Cruz? If the brilliant but polarizing senator from Texas—who happens to be Cuban-American—does indeed run for president in 2016, does he have a shot at winning Hispanic votes? At a time when the GOP is hemorrhaging support from Hispanics, would nominating Cruz provide a solution—or, given his extreme rightwing politics, make the problem worse? I have to be honest: I hate these types of questions. It’s fair to ask whether a certain candidate...

Ana is the face of Obama’s executive amnesty, which conservative Republicans call an affront to the U.S. Constitution.

Nearly 58,000 unaccompanied alien children arrived before the end of fiscal year 2014, almost as many as arrived in the past five years combined, according to the report from HHS’s Office of Refugee Resettlement. “ORR and its partners worked tirelessly throughout the summer influx, addressing emergent medical...

    With Republicans in Congress split over the best approach to President Obama’s executive amnesty – and with many establishment Republicans splitting from grassroots Republicans on the issue of illegal immigration more generally – it’s clear that immigration will be a hot-button primary issue in 2016. That’s nothing new: Governor Rick Perry of Texas saw his campaign flounder not on his “oops” moment, but on his proclamation that those who didn’t back in-state tuition for illegal immigrants were heartless. But the base’s passion on the immigration issue has only escalated thanks to President Obama’s precipitous and illegal actions in failing to...

The newspaper is under fire for refusing to kowtow to left-wing word police and militant propagandists who demand unfettered illegal immigration. Last week, in the wake of angry protests against the publication, vandals threw paint bombs and spray-painted graffiti on its offices. So, what exactly is the News-Press' unforgivable crime? Calling illegal aliens "illegals" in a headline for a story about illegal aliens descending on California DMVs. A new law went into effect last Friday allowing illegal aliens to obtain driver's licenses without proof of lawful residence. The article featured...

At issue: Jobs taken by illegals that America’s minorities, specifically blacks and legal Hispanics, need. “Was that Dr. King’s dream?” asks the ad produced by Californians for Population Stabilization and launched this week on national cable news networks leading up to Monday’s celebration of the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday.

    The belief is widely held that those who are wealthy or possess great political power are above the law and do not have to respond to the legal constraints endured by the great masses of Americans. Those on the left who profess to support the poor and middle classes are quick to point out that the wealthy class can afford to have better access to the legal system. They can afford the best lawyers and rarely receive lengthy prison sentences. The other social class that enjoys privilege is the political class.

No, really, greatly. In fact, according to new data, few of those being caught are being deported at all, and of course, that is due to that “prosecutorial discretion” the president is claiming when it comes to enforcing key segments of immigration law.

    Some illegal alien activists, who are seeking full and unconditional amnesty from President Barack Obama instead of what they see as an incremental "reform policy," are now participating in protest rallies and demonstrations holding placards and signs that read more like threats than petitions for immigration reform. In fact, some are threatening to kill U.S. police officers if their demands are not met. Threats are nothing new, but what is new is the audacity displayed by protesters who have no fear of retribution by police or federal law enforcement agents and no fear of public outrage.

Recall that this summer the administration insisted the thousands of Central American illegal immigrants it was waving across the border would be put into deportation proceedings and those who did not qualify for asylum would be removed. You’d think, then, that there’d be bigshot D.C. journalists interested in finding out how many actually bothered to attend their immigration hearings. You’d be wrong. But the investigative unit at Houston’s KPRC, Channel 2, decided to ask. And when they didn’t get an answer, they persisted. And persisted. And finally got some...

    America's struggling labor unions got a gift this year when President Obama announced his expansive executive actions on immigration: potentially thousands, if not millions, of new members. Labor leaders reportedly are launching a new recruiting push by reaching out to those immigrants affected by Obama's immigration announcement last month. The actions are expected to offer work permits to some 4 million immigrants who entered the U.S. illegally and, until now, were reluctant to join unions for fear of retaliation. Union leaders now say the president's actions give them new protections -- and are keen on signing them up.

    As the debate rages on Capitol Hill about how to defund President Obama's executive action that gives legal status to 5 million illegal immigrants, it's important to take a look at where the funding for his new amnesty program is coming from. The funding for Obama's executive action is coming through the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, a fee, not tax based agency under the jurisdiction of Homeland Security. Because the USCIS is a fee based agency, many have argued Congress cannot defund it. According to the Congressional Research Service, Congress does in fact have the ability to defund the...

He may think so, but it's not at all clear why the House should adopt that view given the executive branch usurpation of authorities granted to the legislature under Article I of the Constitution,...

A National Archives librarian, Jeffrey Hartley, made the confirmation in an email Thursday to WND. “As I indicated, it would appear that there is not an Executive Order stemming from the President’s remarks on November 20 on immigration,” Hartley wrote.

The Secure Communities program has been in place in limited form since 2006, and expanded nationwide in 2008. It allowed local law enforcement to hold arrestees and convicts 48 hours after they were officially bailed or released, if they were in the county illegally, so federal agents could pick them up and start...

In an article called, "Hiring People Who Live in the U.S. But Are Not U.S. Citizens," the IRS definitively states that undocumented workers are unequivocally not allowed to work. Not only does this show that the government needs to update their websites, but that the President has changed laws unilaterally, something that the Executive Branch is not allowed to do.

Obama flouts the Constitution and sneers at the American people with his announcement of unlegislated de facto amnesty for millions of La Raza’s Aztlan Reconquistadors, and he dares anyone to stop him. We’ve seen the numerous video clips from recent years showing Obama himself repeatedly...

    On the eve of Obama's decree we stand at the threshold of entering a new day here in America where - with a swipe of the pen - millions of illegal aliens will be made legal and invade this nation with a heart that withstands our constitutional republic, English language, Judeo/Christian heritage and rule of moral laws. Does this sound harsh to you do-gooders of lawlessness out there? Think again my friends, this act has absolutely nothing to do with helping children or individuals but only seeks to further destroy America, divide Americans and to incite law abiding American citizens...
  • Why Today? Why in Las Vegas? (Obama the Third World Revolutionary)

    In politics, symbolism is everything. You have to pay attention not only to what politicians say, but when and where they say it. For example, Obama announced that he was shafting our loyal ally Poland in order to suck up to our adversary Russia regarding missile defense on the 70th anniversary of the invasion of Poland by Stalin. Tonight in Las Vegas, he will announce an unconstitutional executive decree providing amnesty for millions upon millions of illegal aliens, mainly from Mexico. Why today? Here’s a clue: The Mexican Revolution, which began on November 20, 1910, and continued for a decade,...

    Despite going forward with immigration reform alone, without Congress, the White House is circulating several infographics showing what President Barack Obama is doing on his own and what Congress has left to accomplish. The images include three small ones—two of which promise tough border controls—and one large, overview infographic including those same immigration enforcement promises. The graphic ignores the myriad statements and assertions from Republican lawmakers — who will control both chambers of Congress in a short time — that Obama’s executive actions will make achieving immigration reform improbable, if not impossible....

    resident Barack Obama’s unilateral amnesty will quickly add as many foreign workers to the nation’s legal labor force as the total number of new jobs created by his economy since 2009. The plans, expected to be announced late Nov. 20, will distribute five million work permits to illegal immigrants, and also create a new inflow of foreign college graduates for prestigious salaried jobs, according to press reports. Obama has already provided or promised almost one million extra work permits to foreigners, while his economy has only added six million jobs since 2009. Under the president’s new amnesty plan, “up to...

    Liberals are using a whole lot of false equivalence to paint conservatives as being unreasonable on immigration by saying what Obama is doing is no different from Reagan.There's a huge difference between signing a law passed in Congress (constitutional, whether the law is actually constitutional or not is another issue) and ordering amnesty by executive fiat (unconstitutional).I wasn't sure which fruit represents Obama better (the corrupted version of the right way, or something totally different/unrelated), so I included both. What do you all think?
  • Coincidence? Obama to Announce Executive Amnesty on National Revolution Day in Mexico

    Obama will announce his Executive Amnesty Plan tonight. Today is National Revolution Day in Mexico– The Mexican Revolution, began on November 20, 1910, and continued for a decade. The United States, Mexico’s northern neighbor, was significantly affected by the human dislocation that resulted: if someone did not want to fight, the only alternative was to leave the country—and over 890,000 Mexicans did just that by legally emigrating during the second decade of the 20th century. The Obama administration and minions in the media insist President Reagan also used executive amnesty to allow illegals in the country. As Rush Limbaugh explained,...

    His Royal Majesty King Barack Obama, our Lord and Sovereign, is to issue decrees tonight legalizing previously illegal immigrants. His Majesty is tired of waiting on Congress to act, so tired that he must act himself. The Republicans are so disrespectful of the King, he has been ever so patient with them. May God give us the grace to be as patient and understanding as His Majesty King Barack! Can you imagine the gall of these Republicans, who have spent years attempting to thwart the will of our Sovereign? They should count their blessings that they still have their heads....
  • Al Hunt: Obama Was Wrong When He Said Exec Amnesty Illegal

    It brings to mind that old narcissistic boast: I've never been wrong except that one time when I thought I was wrong. In the current case, we have Al Hunt playing the role of President Obama's alter ego. Hunt the Hilarious made his curious claim on today's Morning Joe after a clip was rolled of President Obama, just last year, saying that were he to grant amnesty to illegals "I would be ignoring the law in a way that I think would be very difficult to defend legally." Responded Hunt: "I don't agree with his analysis back then. I think...

    According to a report in POLITICO, President Obama is expected to make good on his executive amnesty threat on Friday during an event in Las Vegas, despite saying repeatedly over the years that he does not have the authority to change immigration laws from the Oval Office. House Speaker John Boehner, who warned the President shortly after the 2014 midterm elections that acting alone on immigration would "poison the well," has taken notice of Obama's past statements. After some research, his office found President Obama directly claimed 22 times he couldn't take executive action on immigration because he doesn't have the...
