  • Hillary Clinton Says She Will Back Path to 'Full and Equal Citizenship' for Illegal Immigrants

    Christian Post ^ | 05/06/2015 | Stoyan Zaimov
    Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has promised to back a path to "full and equal citizenship" for illegal immigrants, and has accused Republicans of treating illegals as "second class." "This is where I differ with everybody on the Republican side. Make no mistake, not a single Republican ... is clearly and consistently supporting a path to citizenship. Not one," Clinton said during a campaign stop in Nevada on Tuesday, according to The Associated Press. "When they talk about legal status, that is code for second-class status." Clinton further said that she backs President Barack Obama's executive actions that allow some...

    Las Vegas, Nevada (CNN)In what will be her most comprehensive comments on immigration reform as a presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton will use a roundtable on Tuesday in Nevada to argue that the only "true solution" for reform is "nothing less than a full and equal path to citizenship." Clinton will cast immigration reform as a family issue, an aide said Tuesday, and will focus on the need to find a legislative fix, strengthen the United States border and bring "millions of hard-working people out of the shadows and into the formal economy so they can pay taxes and contribute to...

    During a campaign visit to Nevada today, Hillary Rodham Clinton will call for a “full and equal path to citizenship” for immigrants living in the country illegally, drawing a clear distinction from Republican candidates on the issue, a campaign official said. [Snip] Like Obama, the candidate will characterize immigration reform as an economic issue, an effort that would bring millions of people out of the black market economy, enabling them to pay taxes.

    Am I hearing Obama correctly? While speaking at My Brother's Keeper, Obama complained about lack of jobs for blacks. He then called for more investment in black communities to help solve this problem. Strangely absent from his remarks was the impact illegal immigration has had on jobs available to the LEGAL citizens of this country, INCLUDING blacks. Did Obama forget that it is largely because of HIS overturning of our immigration laws that blacks can't find jobs??? Why won't the black community speak out against Obama's immigration policies? Do they fear insulting their soul brother in the White House?

    Sens. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) and Jon Tester (D-Mont.) want every state to offer same-day voter registration for federal elections. The Democratic senators have reintroduced the Same Day Registration Act, which would require states to allow voters to register on the day of an election. Ten states, plus the District of Columbia, currently allow eligible voters to do so, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. In addition, the group notes that Illinois is expected to implement statewide same-day voter registration later this year. Advocates argue it can help increase voter turnout, while opponents say it increases the chances for...

    The House Armed Services Committee approved an amendment, offered by Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-Ariz.), on Wednesday to the National Defense Authorization Act of 2016 that affirms Pres. Obama's unconstitutional 2012 DACA amnesty. The amendment was narrowly approved 33-to-30 by the Committee, mostly along party lines, but with enough GOP support to pass. The amendment expressed that it's the sense of Congress to encourage the Secretary of Defense to waive military enlistment requirements for illegal aliens who receive Pres. Obama's DACA amnesty. DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) grants amnesty and work permits to illegal aliens who would have qualified for...

    The congressman who tried silencing federal law enforcement sources from exposing terrorist camps in Ciudad Juárez is contradicting the U.S. government’s assessment of the famously crime-infested Mexican city by proclaiming that it’s “far safer” than it was years ago. It appears to be a frantic effort on the part of Beto O’Rourke, a Democrat who represents El Paso Texas in the U.S. House of Representatives, to counter reports of Islamic terrorists operating in the area and joining forces with the sophisticated drug cartels that have long controlled the region. Judicial Watch broke that story last fall after receiving detailed...

    Last year, as part of his Imperial decree of amnesty for illegal immigrants, resident Barack Obama created the White House Task Force on New Americans, whose goal is to vastly increase the numbers and rates at which immigrants were naturalized and granted citizenship. This Task Force works hand-in-hand with the George Soros-funded, open borders-promoting Migration Policy Institute, as well as the openly racist group La Raza, a Mexican nationalist organization that has called for the mass murder of white Americans and a return of the western states to Mexico. The Task Force is headed up by one Cecilia Munoz, Obama’s...

    The flow of illegal immigrants has dropped to its lowest level in years judging by the number being apprehended along the border, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said Friday as he sought to be more transparent about his department’s performance. Mr. Johnson said the drop is coming despite an improving economy, which generally draws more illegal migrants. Instead, the secretary said, a boost in manpower and technology along the southwestern border, coupled with public messages in Latin America discouraging would-be migrants from making the journey have helped turn the tide. Through the first six months of fiscal year 2015, which...

Sadly, that gang member allegedly murdered four Americans, including a former participant on the television series “America’s Next Top Model,” according to news reports on Wednesday. In fact, spokespeople for resident Obama admitted that an illegal alien and known gang member, who was allowed...

"We've all seen the atrocities these terrorists are capable of," the President observed. "Who can blame Mexicans for fleeing? To deny these refugees sanctuary would be inhumane. To deport them would be cruel and unusual punishment. To delay their integration into our society merely on the grounds that Congress has failed to enact the necessary legislation would be barbaric."

    “DHS’ broad, unauthorized regulatory-rewrite of Immigration and Naturalization Act statute in question is especially harmful because it oversteps the agency’s authority and usurps the powers reserved to Congress.” (Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today that on April 6, 2015, it filed an amicus curiae brief in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia in support of the Washington Alliance of Technology Workers’ (WashTech) motion for summary judgment in its lawsuit challenging the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) rewrite of the Immigration and Naturalization Act (INA). DHS is illegally allowing foreign students to work in the U.S....

    As recently as 2014, illegal immigrants in 22 states are eligible for lower-cost, in-state tuition at public colleges and universities. […] Campus Reform asked out-of-state students attending UVA and UMD–both of which offer in-state tuition to illegal immigrants—whether they would consider renouncing their U.S. citizenship to become “undocumented students” eligible for in-state tuition. …

    The administration has granted about 541,000 Social Security numbers to illegal immigrants under President Obama’s original 2012 deportation amnesty for Dreamers, officials told Congress in a letter made public Wednesday. That means almost all of the illegal immigrants approved for the amnesty are being granted work permits and Social Security numbers, opening the door to government benefits ranging from tax credits to driver’s licenses. Social Security officials, in the April 10 letter to Sens. Jeff Sessions and Ben Sasse, said they don’t keep track of how many illegal immigrants have been denied numbers, and defended their process for granting the...

    Karl Marx who would be a Democrat Senator if he was alive today said, “The last capitalist we hang shall be the one who sold us the rope.” Last week’s runoff mayoral election in Chicago brought this quote to mind. It also suggested a comparison to the plot of Disney’s The Sorcerer’s Apprentice. In that production we see Mickey Mouse working as an apprentice to a sorcerer who orders him to tend to a series of chores that includes fetching water. Seeing his opportunity to use the power in the sorcerer’s wand for his own benefit, Mickey commands a broom...

    (CNSNews.com) - There was a bit of show and tell Tuesday on Capitol Hill, when Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Sarah Saldana told the House Judiciary Committee about her department’s efforts to enforce immigration law while also following the more lenient policies outlined by Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson last November. "We have actually put out real substantial training on this, sir," Saldana told Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.). "And every officer uses one of these cards, which clearly outlines those priorities." Saldana held up one of the cards. "And quite frankly, I carry it myself -- and try to make...

    ISIS is operating a camp just a few miles from El Paso, Texas, according to Judicial Watch sources that include a Mexican Army field grade officer and a Mexican Federal Police Inspector. The exact location where the terrorist group has established its base is around eight miles from the U.S. border in an area known as “Anapra” situated just west of Ciudad Juárez in the Mexican state of Chihuahua. Another ISIS cell to the west of Ciudad Juárez, in Puerto Palomas, targets the New Mexico towns of Columbus and Deming for easy access to the United States, the same...

    The dominoes are toppling faster and faster. With each passing day the elites of America are pushing ahead with their plan to erase any distinction between legal and illegal immigration. The once cherished concept of citizenship continues to erode in the face of a relentless push to grant all the perks and privileges of citizenship to the uncountable millions who violated our nation’s laws when they entered the country illegally. Anyone who objects is vilified as a racist and xenophobe. While politicians of both parties conspire to turn the brilliantly inclusive American melting pot into a dystopian Tower of Babble...

Samuel Rodriguez said in a statement. “This convention will bring together influential Christian Hispanic leaders from around the world to address vital issues of...

    The federal government’s chief deportation agency has seen its success plummet under President Obama, and its chief, Sarah R. Saldana, will tell Congress on Tuesday that they’ve had trouble adapting to the changing face of illegal immigration and a lack of cooperation from both American cities and from foreign countries. Ms. Saldana, director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), says in testimony prepared for the House Judiciary Committee that the dramatic drop in deportations is a reflection of a trickier set of circumstances and pressures from all sides. She said she had to pull agents off their regular duties...

    Two of the country’s most powerful and politically influential labor unions are backing President Obama in the recent court challenge to his 2014 executive action on illegal immigration, saying they support the president’s effort because "undocumented workers" need more workplace protection and their participation helps the U.S. economy. The AFL-CIO and the National Education Association on Monday each filed so-called amicus briefs in a federal appeals court case in which Texas and 26 other states are challenges the president’s 2014 memorandum on illegal immigration. The memorandum essentially expands work authorization and delayed-deportation programs for illegal immigrants. And it provides similar...

    The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit on Apr. 6 against the federal government to obtain “documents related to how groups that are awarded government funding contracts are restricting refugee and undocumented immigrant teenagers’ access to reproductive health services, including contraception and abortion.” The lawsuit is seeking the release of documents from the Health and Human Services Administration for Children and Families about contracts awarded to religious groups that are helping unaccompanied minors, many of whom have crossed into the United States from Mexico. Brigitte Amiri, an ACLU senior staff attorney, said that...
