    Jeb Bush told Telemundo he wants a pathway to legal status for all 11 million undocumented immigrants in the United States. The former Florida governor granted his first Spanish-language interview as a presidential candidate to Telemundo Monday evening. In the interview, he talked about his immigration policies, his thoughts on Donald Trump and Cuba, and his home life and family. "First, coming here legally has to be easier than coming here illegally," he said. "So there needs to be an agreement with the border ... for the 11 million people (who are here illegally), they must come out of the...

    President Bush's son, Jeb, is looking for a maid who's a legal U.S. resident. A maid who had worked at Bush's Miami home for three years was deported back to her native Honduras last week. Bush was out jogging when immigration agents showed up so his wife, Columba, had to deal with them. "She indicated, `Yes, she works here,' brought the lady out, and the two agents showed her the deportation order,said Richard Smith, director of the INS's Miami office."

    Jeb Bush implored his Republican presidential rivals Monday to reject the "crazy message of hate" that he sees at play in the campaign and cast himself as a "committed conservative," but not an "angry" one, in remarks rooted in Donald Trump's inflammatory rhetoric and the backlash that followed. As conservatives, he said in a speech to pastors, "if we act with our heart, people will rise." Afterward, Bush gave his call for political civility a harder edge in a raucous rally where he urged other GOP contenders to quit scolding each other. "We have to campaign with joy in our...

    Presidential contender and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush will be courting a critical group of voters Monday afternoon – the fast growing community of Latinos in Central Florida, an area where the Republican last campaigned in 2002. Hundreds of thousands of Latinos, mainly Puerto Ricans, have settled in Central Florida in the years since Bush last served as governor. They include many Puerto Ricans who have fled the island’s economic woes and diminishing opportunities.

    Jeb Bush told MSNBC's Jose Diaz-Balart that he was "herido," Spanish for "hurt," by Donald Trump's comments about undocumented Mexican immigrants during an interview conducted entirely in Spanish on Monday. "I was hurt hearing somebody speaking in such a vulgar fashion. This makes solving this problem much more difficult," Bush said, according to a translator. "When we have politicians like that we cannot progress." "In a political sense it was bad, and it creates an environment that is worse," he added.

    A federal judge in California has ruled that hundreds of illegal immigrant women and children in U.S. holding facilities should be released, another apparent setback for President Obama’s immigration policy, according to The Los Angeles Times. U.S. District Judge Dolly Gee said Friday that the conditions in which the detainees are being held are “deplorable” and violate parts of an 18-year-old court settlement that put restrictions on the detention of migrant children. The ruling also raises questions about what the administration will do with the estimated 1,700 parents and children at three detention facilities, two in Texas and one in...

    People who entered the United States illegally may be called "undocumented" in politically correct circles, but what is all too well documented is the utter irresponsibility of both political parties in dealing with immigration issues. Both Democratic and Republican administrations have left the border with Mexico porous for years — porous not just for Mexicans but for anybody else, including terrorists from the Middle East. Two very different issues have gotten jumbled together in the political stew called "comprehensive immigration reform." The first and most fundamental issue is whether we are going to have an immigration policy at all. The...

On immigration reform, Bush said, “We need to have a path to legal status for the 11 million people here…What else would you do?” He added: “The idea of self-deportation or the idea of rounding people up is not an American value.” Bush said legal status...

    This should answer the question of why Donald Trump resonates with the Republican base. Despite having criticized Mitt Romney for being too hardline on immigration in 2012, Trump has until very recently embraced the hardline positions — and those turn out to be very popular among GOP voters. A new poll from CNN shows that normalizing the illegals who have been living here gets 55% support from the general public, but 64% of Republicans prefer deportation: The poll also finds Trump’s positions on immigration are at odds with those of most Americans, but may be providing him a boost...

    Disappointing, but not surprising. The depressing reality though that is that most of the Republican field has endorsed amnesty in one form or another. So this isn't much of a surprise. Trump is using his own vocabulary, but he's echoing the same amnesty talking points you could hear from Marco Rubio... or Barack Obama. During Friday's interview, Trump said the U.S. should take a two-step approach to the 11 million undocumented immigrants currently living in the country. "Well, the first thing we do is take the bad ones — of which there are, unfortunately, quite a few," said Trump,...

Donald Trump, Scott Walker and Rick Santorum revealed important things about themselves in high-pressure moments this past week, surrounded by the cameras and tape recorders of national media. Trump on national TV and on the Arizona border stumbled and let himself get boxed into saying he would offer amnesty to the illegal aliens who aren't the "bad ones." He seemed to be defensive and trying to prove that he isn't hostile to immigrants by also indicating he would like to see legal immigration increased. But Walker...

    A remarkable transformation is underway in the Commonwealth of Virginia. The birthplace and final resting place of George Washington, James Madison, Thomas Jefferson—and once one of the most reliably-red of red states—is being rapidly turned into a progressive stronghold. These changes are not the result of an inside agency, or a natural evolution in political thinking, but rather the result of one of the most impactful yet least-discussed policies of the federal government. Each year the federal government prints millions of visas and distributes these admission tickets to the poorest and least-developed nations in the world. A middle-aged person living...

    In a long overdue reaction to the mounting tally of victims of crimes committed by illegal aliens, the US House of Representatives enacted the "Enforce the Law for Sanctuary Cities Act." The bill would block federal law-enforcement grants to cities that refuse to enforce federal immigration laws. The vote for the bill was highly partisan with Republicans heavily in favor and Democrats heavily opposed. Mocking the bill as "the Donald Trump Act," Rep. Xavier Becerra (D-Calif), the chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, called the legislation "illogical. Sanctuary cities bear a disproportionate burden of the crimes committed by undocumented inhabitants....

    A federal judge in California has ruled that the Obama administration’s detention of children and their mothers who were caught crossing the border illegally is a serious violation of a longstanding court settlement, and that the families should be released as quickly as possible. In a decision late Friday roundly rejecting the administration’s arguments for holding the families, Judge Dolly M. Gee of Federal District Court for the Central District of California found that two detention centers in Texas that the administration opened last summer fail to meet minimum legal requirements of the 1997 settlement for facilities housing children. -snip-...

This is the “silent majority.” While it is true that minorities and other groups helped elect President Obama twice, “the white portion of the electorate, which votes strongly Republican, underperformed in support of John McCain in 2008, and white turnout was down in 2012,” when Mitt Romney was the Republican...

    Beneficiaries of sanctuary cities warn of crackdown on sanctuary cities posted at 3:21 pm on July 21, 2015 by Jazz Shaw In case you missed it in the flurry of other political entertainment news, the House has begun looking over a bill to impose penalties on so called “sanctuary cities” by cutting off their funding. It’s being sponsored by Duncan Hunter of California, with a similar bill having already been introduced in the Senate. Strangely, there doesn’t seem to be as much of an appetite in either chamber to advance the legislation as one might expect after the death of...

    Last year a retired Border Patrol Officer by the name of Zach Taylor went on camera to explain the driving force behind the unprecedented surge in illegal immigration happening on our southern border. Taylor went on to note that what was happening at our border was not due to a spur of the moment event, or “a humanitarian crisis”, but asymmetrical warfare. The surge we saw at the border was apart of a larger more chilling event that served one purpose and one purpose only, to show our enemies that our southern border had been compromised and the government wouldn’t...

    The experienced, accessible and disciplined candidate gets sarcastic in South Carolina. Jeb Bush said he’d give John Kasich a shout-out from the debate stage if the Ohio governor doesn’t make the cut. He publicly lamented the media’s obsession with Donald Trump. He even mocked the notion that his family lineage means he’s been waiting his whole life to become president. “It’s not like I’ve been kind of in some test tube waiting for my chance now, the third Bush,” he quipped. “I’ve actually had a life.” The 200 people who showed up here Tuesday afternoon got a glimpse of a...

    The Washington Post tells the story of the illegal immigrant who confronted Scott Walker in Iowa. Walker told him that “We’re a nation of laws,” and immigrants need to follow the law too. This encounter has gotten quite a bit of press: As presidential hopeful Scott Walker toured a farm in this tiny town where he lived as a child, he was confronted by an undocumented worker from Mexico who is living in Wisconsin and demanded to know why Walker does not support President Obama’s plan to give temporary status to some undocumented workers, including parents of children who...

    The father of a 32-year-old Pleasanton woman who was fatally shot while walking along San Francisco's Pier 14 wants Congress to reform laws that allowed her alleged killer to remain in the United States despite being deported several times. Addressing the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday, Jim Steinle said he and his family support legislation that would close some legal loopholes that currently allow local authorities to decide if they will cooperate with federal immigration authorities. Steinle's daughter, Kathryn, was killed on July 1 as the pair strolled at the Embarcadero. The duo were “walking arm-in-arm” relishing a “wonderful day...

    MOTHER OF SON MURDERED BY ILLEGAL ALIEN SLAMS SANCTUARY CITIES, POLITICIANS: ‘YOUR SILENCE SPEAKS VOLUMES’ At a Tuesday Senate hearing dedicated to the families who lost loved ones thanks to illegal aliens, Laura Wilkerson gave testimony on her youngest son Joshua’s horrific death while some in the silent audience wept. Wilkerson called on Congress to place American lives and interests over foreigners, especially those illegally living in the country. During the hearing, titled “Oversight of the Administration’s Misdirected Immigration Enforcement Policies: Examining the Impact on Public Safety and Honoring the Victims,” Wilkerson broke from her written testimony to deliver a...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The House will take up a bill this week blocking funding for so-called "sanctuary cities" that resist turning over immigrants to federal authorities. The move follows the shooting death of a woman in San Francisco this month, allegedly by an immigrant with a criminal record and without legal status. San Francisco authorities had released the man despite a request from federal officials to keep him in custody. That was in line with a practice by San Francisco and other jurisdictions that have begun refusing to cooperate with federal immigration orders amid concerns over their legality and their...

    Three years after the Obama administration quietly rewarded illegal immigrants with “unlawful presence waivers” it has a new plan in the works to shield them from deportation based on the “accrual of unlawful presence” in the United States. That’s right; illegal aliens with the longest record of violating our laws will be rewarded by our government, according to the proposed plan obtained by Judicial Watch this month from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). It’s all part of the president’s mission to grant amnesty to as many illegal immigrants as possible before he leaves office. This includes special executive programs...

Scott Walker(R-WI)on Sunday.A look at mainstream media reports on the incident, however, provides a stark lesson in how the country’s newsmakers twist,slant,and bury the real story of the tactics used on a daily basis by the organized network of pro-illegal immigration groups that are pushing for a radical agenda to erase America’s sovereignty.It began when Walker made a campaign stop in his Iowa hometown. Surrounded by the media horde of whirring cameras, Gov....

    "I’m super angry," Tricia Bracho told ABC 15 in Phoenix, AZ. The single mother of two who lives in Maricopa, just south of Phoenix, was hit head on by a car driven by an illegal immigrant on July 4. Like so many stories of late, the perp in this case should not have been in the country. Manuel Perez-Vasquez, a 29 year-old illegal, has been deported six times since May 2012 and was high on marijuana while driving. Bracho said she was just three miles from home with her one year-old daughter and four year-old son when she tried to...

    DMV leaders say licenses make roads saferIn a testament to how well California's new Safe and Responsible Driver Act is working, the Department of Motor Vehicles said more than half of new driver's licenses issued in the first six months of 2015 went to undocumented immigrants. The DMV said since January when it implemented the Safe and Responsible Driver Act, about 397,000 driver's licenses have been issued to undocumented applicants, which is 52 percent of the total 759,000 original driver's licenses distributed. Watch report: 52% of new CA driver's licenses issued to undocumented immigrants Esmeralda Lazcano, 21, is among those...
