    Like millions of other Americans, I appreciate the plight of billions of people throughout the world who would like nothing more than to find themselves in the United States, where they could enjoy a much higher standard of living and wonderful opportunities for advancement. It certainly seems like a compassionate thing to offer them legal status in America and the opportunity to pursue their dreams. It should first be considered, however, that we have millions of people already mired in dire poverty in our inner cities, rural townships and places such as Appalachia who would certainly appreciate a helping hand...

    <p>Under the president's new amnesty, businesses will have a $3,000-per-employee incentive to hire illegal immigrants over native-born workers because of a quirk of Obamacare.</p> <p>President Obama's temporary amnesty, which lasts three years, declares up to 5 million illegal immigrants to be lawfully in the country and eligible for work permits, but it still deems them ineligible for public benefits such as buying insurance on Obamacare's health exchanges.</p>

    Along with his more sensationalized executive order granting some illegal immigrants a chance to stay in the U.S. without fear of deportation, President Barack Obama quietly ended a controversial program on Thursday that had deported 283,000 of them after they were arrested for crimes other than border-crossing. 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...

    Ruling by presidential decree is a characteristic of the typical Latin American “Republic.” Does anyone care what the Brazilian or Venezuelan congresses do? What the Mexican Senate and Chamber or Deputies decide? Populated by powerless eunuchs, many of el Presidente’s own party, they don’t matter except as a façade. So what’s the difference between the way Americans are ruled today and the way the heirs of Peron and Chavez rule their country? Is there that much difference between Obama and the rule of the president of Mexico whose term is often labeled the "six-year monarchy" because of the seemingly unchecked...

    If I understood the President correctly the 4.4 million immigrants who just got their “get out of jail card” are no longer considered illegal. They are simply called the UNDOCUMENTED. The President, as usual, referenced a young woman who had been in the US illegally, I mean UNDOCUMENTED, since she was 4 years old. Apparently Mom and Dad were also illegal - oops - UNDOCUMENTED. She is now a college student working on her 3rd degree. A very admirable story. She beat the system and now can come out of the shadows. She will not be able to vote, for now, nor...

    Despite the fact that President Obama, through an executive order, is now allowing several million illegal aliens to apply for work permits, the IRS's official website still states that it is "against federal law to hire illegal aliens." 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. The article...

    "When the facts change, I change my mind," economist John Maynard Keynes said when charged with inconsistency. "What do you do, sir?" As President Obama threatens to stretch his power to faithfully execute the law to a breaking point by effectively legalizing some 5 million illegal immigrants, perhaps I owe readers an explanation of my own changes of mind on immigration. I tended to support the so-called comprehensive immigration bills passed by the Senate in 2006 and then rejected by the Senate in 2007, due to missteps by new Majority Leader Harry Reid. But I think the similar bill the...

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?

    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...

    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,...

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...

Latinos are divided, with 43 percent supporting the action and 37 percent opposing it. But the sample size here is small (just 110 Latino respondents), so the numbers have a high margin of error.

Could American negotiators have known that within a year gold would be discovered in California and the flood of Anglo and other immigrants into this state would be the beginning of a population boom still going on 165 years later?

    The 5 million people who could be spared deportation and given work authorization if President Obama orders immigration reform deserve the benefits he has in mind. America needs to bring them — and millions more — into the mainstream, for humane reasons and because they would help rev the country’s economic engine. At the same time, to boost innovation and create jobs, the U.S. also needs to admit far more foreign-born engineers, computer scientists and bio-technologists if the country is to remain on the cutting edge of business innovation.

    People who weren’t even born in America are taking significant advantage of one of Obamacare’s single-most expensive benefits, the expansion of Medicaid, a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) shows. In fact, immigrants have accounted for 42 percent of the growth in Medicaid enrollment since Obamacare began being implemented in 2011, the report finds. “The high rate and significant growth in Medicaid associated with immigrants is mainly the result of a legal immigration system that admits large numbers of immigrants with relatively low-levels of education, many of whom end up poor and uninsured,” report co-author Steven Camarota...

    ICE lawyer’s discrimination complaint details battles with Obama administrationThe Obama administration told federal immigration lawyers to release illegal immigrants with “old” drunken-driving convictions and those found guilty of stealing other people’s identities, according to a lawsuit filed by one of the lawyers at the center of the operation. Patricia M. Vroom, a top attorney for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement in Arizona, filed a 67-page discrimination complaint that details repeated battles with agency higher-ups who told her to close cases and not deport people whom President Obama deemed low-priority. Federal officials were particularly dismissive of identity theft convictions from Arizona,...

    Two explosives were found near an Arizona bridge approximately 30 miles from the U.S. border with Mexico, according to a leaked report exclusively obtained by Breitbart Texas. The items were made from water gel commercial explosives and were ammonium nitrate based, according to the leaked official report from the Joint Intelligence Operations Center (JIOC). The materials were found near Amado, Arizona by two Arizona Department of Transportation employees who were reportedly inspecting the bridge.

    President Obama said once again that he won't wait on Congress to start making changes to America's immigration system. In an appearance Sunday on CBS' Face The Nation, Obama stood by his recent statements that he'll use executive action to enact changes before the end of the year, but told host Bob Schieffer that he still wants Congress to act on the issue, too. Everyone agrees, Obama said, that the U.S. doesn't have the capacity to deport 11 million people.

    After surviving a primary challenge and winning a general election, Sen. Pat Roberts (R-KS) declared that he heard his "marching orders" from Kansas voters to be conservative. "I've heard my marching orders loud and clear," Roberts, a Marine veteran, said during his Tuesday evening victory speech. "I will be bold. I will be conservative. And I will be constructive." Roberts, who has been against amnesty legislation since the 1980s, survived his primary challenge against Milton Wolf because there was no daylight between Roberts and Wolf on illegal immigration....

    President Obama will act on his own using his executive authority to enact immigration reform, according to White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest during the press briefing today. “The answer is yes, the president is going to take action,” Earnest said, when questioned about Obama’s motives on executive action in spite of warnings from Republicans that it would "poison the well" in negotiations with Congress. Earnest insisted that action on immigration reform would be good for the country, good for the economy, good for border security, good for immigrants, and good for business. The message of the election, Earnest explained,...

    Most of the people the Border Patrol stopped from sneaking into the country last year were from countries other than Mexico, according to agency statistics, a shift that might have provided fodder for politicians leading up to Tuesday’s election. But they didn’t get much of a chance. The Border Patrol’s annual statistics were posted on the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Web site for about five hours on Oct. 10, then taken down. Now some are questioning whether that decision was an example of the Obama administration playing politics with public information. Even before Tuesday, the administration said it was...

    --SNIP-- U.S. immigration attorneys say there has been a dramatic increase in the last year in the number of women and girls from Central America seeking asylum in the United States after having been kidnapped and raped, much like the women who are fleeing war in Africa. “We are seeing an exponential increase,” said Lindsay Toczylowski, a lawyer with Catholic Charities in Los Angeles. “It’s the evolution of gang warfare, what’s going on in Honduras and El Salvador.

    President Barack Obama took a major gamble when he punted executive action on immigration earlier this fall to try and save red-state Senate Democrats – and it didn’t pay off. Vulnerable Senate Democrats who publicly opposed executive action, from Sen. Kay Hagan of North Carolina to Mark Pryor in Arkansas, weren’t spared from defeat by the delay. Instead, it may have well have hurt Democratic Sen. Mark Udall in purple Colorado, a state with a significant Latino electorate who voted the incumbent out. With steep Democratic losses, Obama is left with a Republican-controlled Senate, whose leaders are already warning Obama...

The Kentucky Republican achieved his lifelong dream on Tuesday night in a massive victory for his party, and is positioned to move into Sen. Harry Reid's ornate suite in the Capitol when the next Congress convenes on Jan. 3. But it is likely to be a short honeymoon. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, the influential tea party firebrand, is poised to make life very difficult for the old-school Kentuckian by...
