  • Migrant to Mexico Denounces Hypocrite Jorge Ramos

    FrontPage Mag ^ | 09/02/2015 | Humberto Fontova
    “I cover many issues in many countries” (Univision’s Jorge Ramos to CNN’s Brian Stelter 8/25/2015). “I’ve never ceased to be Mexican. I have two passports, and I vote in elections in both countries" (Univision’s Jorge Ramos, Time Magazine, 1/2/2013). “Then why your silence on the thousands upon thousands of Cubans that are arrested, beaten, extorted and deported by migratory officials of YOUR country, Mr. Ramos?” (Rafael Alejandro Hernández, 8/28/ 2015).  Rafael Alejandro Hernández is a young Cuban lawyer living in Mexico who knows from firsthand experience what migrants to Mexico go through. Last week he unloaded on Jorge Ramos: “Mr. Ramos,...
  • More Than Half of Immigrants on Public Assistance

    Western Free Press ^ | September 1 2015 | Steven Hayward
    51 percent of immigrant households—both legal and illegal—receive some kind of public assistance, versus just 30 percent of native households. Whether immigrants contribute more to total economic activity or public revenues greater than they receive in benefits is not addressed in this report, and remains a subject of fierce controversy. ... This study is the first in recent years to examine immigrant (legal and illegal) and native welfare use using the Census Bureau’s Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP). While its complexity makes it difficult to use, the survey is widely regarded as providing the most accurate picture of...
  • Latinos hate Donald Trump. But guess who they like: Jeb Bush.

    Washington Post ^ | 9/2/15 | Aaron Blake
    Back in 2012, GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney won the white vote 59 percent to 39 percent. He lost Hispanics by a notorious margin, 71-27. All of which makes Jeb Bush's numbers in the new Washington Post-ABC News poll fascinating. That's because the former Florida governor is actually doing better among Hispanics than among whites (albeit within the margin of error). This is both because Bush does worse than your average Republican among whites and notably better among Hispanics. While 39 percent of whites report a positive impression of him, that number is 43 percent for Hispanics. It's almost unthinkable...

    Jeb Bush had "no choice" but to attack him with a recent ad, Donald Trump said Wednesday. "Well I think had really no choice. He's doing very poorly in the polls, he's a very low-energy kind of guy and he had to do something, so they're spending a lot of money on ads," the Republican presidential candidate told ABC's George Stephanopoulos by telephone on "Good Morning America." Bush's operation is spending the lion's share of its advertising on positive ads touting Bush's background as governor of Florida and his policies, with Tuesday's spot being the candidate's first negative one against...

    After releasing a new ad attacking Donald Trump’s past liberal views, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush continues to criticize Donald Trump — now in Spanish. “He attacks me every day. He attacks me every day with barbarities,” Bush pointed out in Spanish, accusing Trump of not being a true conservative. “He supports people like Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). He’s given money to Hillary Clinton. He was a Democrat longer than Republican. He’s said that he’s more comfortable being a Democrat. He doesn’t have a record, because he hasn’t been a person who has served like me, who served for eight...

    The war of words between Jeb Bush and Donald Trump continued to escalate Tuesday as the normally soft-spoken former Florida governor lashed out at billionaire business magnate – in both English and Spanish – for what he called personal attacks. "He attacks me every day — he personalizes everything," Bush told Spanish-language reporters at a Miami campaign event, according to Politico. "If you’re not totally in agreement with him, you’re an ‘idiot,’ you’re ‘stupid,’ you have ‘low energy,’ blah, blah, blah.’" Bush, who generally avoids direct confrontations with other candidate, appeared frustrated and added that Trump has turned the campaign...

    In a classic example of phony political jujitsu, an MSNBC contributor has tried to turn the patriotism issue back against Republicans. Appearing on today's Ed Show, Steve Clemons attacked the "patriotism" of GOP congressional leaders, accusing them of "undermining the security of the nation." This because Republicans have attached amendments to the DHS funding bill denying funds for President Obama's executive amnesty. Of course neither Clemons nor Schultz revealed that in a potential DHS "shutdown," all essential personnel, including those at TSA, Customs and Border, Secret Service, FEMA and Coast Guard, would continue to work. Only non-essential personnel, mainly office...

    He said he would campaign for president "joyfully." But Jeb Bush has apparently realized that happy talk won't get him anywhere in the era of Donald Trump. Bush took his gloves off Tuesday in Miami after his campaign released a new Web video attacking Trump as a phony Republican. The video came on the heels of a Trump video Monday slamming Bush over immigration. Speaking mostly in Spanish — which will do little to get him press coverage in early-primary states like Iowa and New Hampshire — Bush told reporters he decided to go after Trump "because he attacks me...

    With all the stories we wind up covering which involve illegal aliens being caught, released, and left to roam around, it’s nice to see a report of ICE going out there and getting something done. That was apparently the case in Southern California this week, where agents were rude enough to identify hundreds of illegal immigrants with felony records (including murder), round them up and schedule them to exit the country. More than 240 people were taken into federal custody last week across Southern California after a four-day sweep for immigrants with criminal records in the country illegally, authorities...

Now, the billionaire real estate mogul and 2016 presidential hopeful has issued a damning video, using Jeb’s own words to skewer him. The video included a clip of a speech the former Florida governor gave in which he attempted to rationalize unlawful entry into this country. “Yes, they broke the law, but it’s not a felony,” Bush is shown saying in the clip posted to Trump’s Facebook page. “It’s a — it’s an act of love.”...

    A federal case moving to trial in Texas could provide a means to stop the practice of extending automatic U.S. citizenship to children born to illegal aliens. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump recently called for legislation to end that unpopular practice, which polls show Americans oppose by more than 2 to 1, and even Jeb Bush admitted that it’s perfectly legitimate to call those children "anchor babies." The Pew Research Center estimated that 340,000 children are born annually to citizens of Mexico and other foreign countries who are living illegally in the United States, and that doesn’t include children born...

Now Castańeda and others fear Trump's talk about erecting a "big beautiful wall" at the border and deporting millions could make it near impossible to find the guest workers they need, and who would obtain legal status under most comprehensive reforms bills. "There are growers out there screaming for labor," said Castańeda, a farm labor contractor in San Luis Obispo County in central California. "The people who are coming...

    The headline from Investor’s Business Daily on their own poll uses the word “shock” – “Shock Poll: 59% Back Trump On Deportation of Illegals.” But as Jared Peterson wrote on these pages yesterday, for the last two years Rasmussen polling has demonstrated a huge gap between the overwhelming majority of Americans and the political establishment of the GOP on immigration policy. The IBD polling, which mentions mandatory deportation, reinforces this stunning disconnect between politicians and the people they supposedly serve, a chasm that Donald Trump has spotted and used to his huge advantage. IBD editorializes: The latest IBD/TIPP Poll asked...

Mr. Bush, the former Florida governor, has not had a seasonal respite from his breakneck fund-raising of earlier this year. Nor has he had a stretch of good headlines. Instead, he’s had Donald J. Trump, a middling outing in the first Republican debate, and a string of supporters wringing their hands about when things will improve. The “super PAC” supporting Mr. Bush is set to go on air with television ads this month in the hopes of turning around his numbers. Mike Murphy, his longtime adviser...

    A large part of Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump’s stance on immigration involves building a wall along the southern U.S. border — a wall the real estate tycoon insists will be paid for by Mexico. But not so fast says GOP rival Jeb Bush. The former governor of Florida said over the weekend Trump is promising to build “a wall that can’t be built,” the Washington Examiner reported. It’s a determination Bush said he made after talking to mayors and law enforcement on the Texas-Mexico border, who he said told him a wall can’t be built because of the rugged...

You can read the “act of love” comment in context here. And here’s the thing: If you do, you’ll see that Bush wanted people to notice it and remember it. “I’m going to say...

The 15-second video, which Trump posted to Instagram and Twitter, begins with the text: "Jeb Bush's Thoughts on Illegal Immigration." It plays sound of Bush, a former Florida governor, saying of undocumented immigrants, "Yes, they broke the law, but it's not a felony. It's an act of love." Over the sound of Bush talking, with harrowing music playing, the Trump video flashes mug shots of Francisco Sanchez, who was charged in...

    Liberals and the MSM constantly tell us that illegals are good for the country, that they are hardworking and pay their own way. As a result, we're told that it would be wrong to deport them. Given that "reality," even staunch conservatives should agree with the following: let's let any illegal who works hard and pays his own way stay. If illegals are all that Democrats say they are, illegals will never cross the path of any government organization and won't burden honest Americans financially. In light of that, let's consider the following deportation solution: any illegal who costs the...

"What Trump is doing is political suicide," says Patricio Zamorano, executive director of the consulting firm Infoamericas.info.

Immigration has dominated the agenda since then, with Trump, 69, promising...

    IT IS now four years since David Cameron promised to reduce immigration into the UK from the hundreds of thousands to “tens of thousands” a year. “No ifs, no buts”, was what the Prime Minister said. But the latest official figures, out yesterday, show he is nowhere near to fulfilling that promise. In fact in the last year immigration into our country reached record highs with net migration reaching a 10-year peak at 330,000 in the year up to March. Thirteen per cent of people in this country now were born abroad. ... the need to speak out has never...

    " I find it the height of irony that a party which espouses small government would want to unleash a massive government effort, which might include national guard and others, to go and literally pull people out of their homes and their workplaces, round them up and, I don't know, put them in buses or boxcars, in order to take them across the border. I find that absurd but appalling." "Unleash". Great lawyer speak as in "is is is". No you dumbass b*tch, even Trump isn't talking about pulling them out of their homes and put in boxcars. He's just...
  • Can Trump Round Up 20 Million Illegals?

    Donald Trump recently appeared on Bill O’Reilly’s show and was presented with an emotive scenario intended to bring Trump into the quandary of the establishment. In context of rounding up illegals for deportation, Mr. Trump was asked about the families. What about the undocumented people living in our country, working hard and raising children? Is Trump going to bust into every home Janet Reno-style and drag families, kids and all, to the southern border? This scenario creates quite the image and will be used repeatedly by the press to show just how unworkable, unfair, and heartless Trump’s idea really is....
  • Anchors Away: Ridiculous to believe that the 14th Amendment was intended for children of illegals

    “Bin Laden 2016” raises the question: Does “birthright citizenship,” regardless of parentage, qualify one to become president of the United States? Now that I have your attention, let’s consider a logical consequence of the current policy of the U.S. government, granting “birthright citizenship” to a child born in the United States of illegal immigrants, otherwise known as an “anchor baby.” Section I of the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution states: “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.” At...

    Eric Cantor will be named as one of Jeb Bush’s three co-chairs in Virginia, marking a high-profile return to the national political scene for the former House majority leader who lost his seat in stunning fashion during last year’s primary election. Former Virginia Secretary of Health Kay Cole James and former Virginia Lt. Gov. John Hager will round out the leadership team for Mr. Bush’s 2016 GOP presidential campaign in The Old Dominion. The news comes ahead of Mr. Bush’s scheduled town hall meeting Friday at VFW Post 4809 in Norfolk. Mr. Cantor, in a statement, called Mr. Bush “a...
  • Bush Supporters Say Jeb More Energetic (Crowd of 400)

    Many of the more than 400 people who attended a Jeb Bush town hall meeting in Pensacola say the former governor was more engaged with the crowd and more passionate when discussing key issues. Bush is not known for his public speaking skills. He’ll be the first to tell you he’s not an entertainer, but he appeared to be more enthusiastic and animated at the small venue today. Jeb Bush seems to do well when speaking to smaller, more intimate groups. His main opponent, however, thrives at chaotic, massive events.

    Jeb Bush wrote the book on immigration. Donald Trump blusters about it and appeals to the worst impulses of Americans who feel threatened by the nation's increasing diversity that they are powerless to stop. It is up to the former Florida governor to take the high road on a smarter approach to immigration policy and to call out Trump's pandering pledge to "take back our country'' even as other Republican presidential candidates meekly fall in line with the bombastic baiting. Bush ramped up his criticism of Trump's reckless immigration pledges this week at a campaign stop in a Texas border...

    Referring to Donald Trump and his proposals for a wall and immigration, Bush said, “How are you going to stop all of the remittances without violating their civil rights? This guy is now the front runner, he should be held accountable as I am, he should be asked how he should pay for it. Why don’t you prove to me it’s practical?” “I’ll tell you what they say on the border,” Bush continued, “it would tear apart their community, would hurt their economic activity, and it’s not needed, and there are better ways to deal with this…”

    Jeb Bush’s not so great week got worse today. The former Florida Governor began it by defending his use of the controversial term,” anchor babies.” Then he said it was more of an Asian issue than one involving Latino immigrants. Later it was reported that there have been money issues with his campaign, with some staff members’ paychecks having recently “shrank.” Now Bush wakes up to a new national Quinnipiac poll on the GOP 2016 race, where he finds himself trailing Donald Trump by 21 points. Trump is at 28 percent, Ben Carson is second with 12 percent, and Jeb...

    To support his insane interpretation of the post-Civil War amendments as granting citizenship to the kids of illegal aliens, Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly is now taking job applications for the nonexistent — but dearly hoped-for — Jeb! administration, live, during his show.(Apparently my debate with O’Reilly will be conducted in my column, Twitter feed and current bestselling book, Adios, America, against the highest-rated show on cable news.)Republicans have been out of the White House for seven long years, and GOP lawyers are getting impatient. So now they’re popping up on Fox News’ airwaves, competing to see who can denounce Donald...
  • Immigration Questions for Democrats: After Donald Trump, It's Their Turn to Answer

    Republicans get asked about immigration all the time, mostly to get their reactions to something Donald Trump said, but not always. Democrats hardly ever get asked about immigration, and when they do it’s always to get their reaction to something a Republican said (in response to an actual question about immigration).Immigration is a controversial issue, and far more complex than the media coverage would have you believe. For example: “Should there be a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants?” is not the only question that requires an answer in the debate over immigration reform. If reporters really wanted to, they...
