  • Is America a Nation of Immigrants?

    Generations of students have been taught that we are a nation of immigrants but inquiring minds beg to differ. Well, actually, they don’t beg. “What we have never been is a nation of immigrants,” veteran journalist Ralph Kinney Bennett said last weekend at the regional meeting of the Philadelphia Society in Indianapolis. “We were put through the process, rough-edged though it may have been, to become Americans.” “We did not suggest that they shed their heritage but make it part of a larger heritage.” Bennett retired as senior editor in the Washington bureau of Reader’s Digest in 2001. William B....

    Maine election-year battle over welfare for asylum seekers on-going Maine election-year battle over welfare for asylum seekers on-going Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 21, 2014 We have reported on the problem in Maine for months (years!). The gist of it is that Maine has had a wonderland of welfare for immigrants (that is what brought the first Somalis to Lewiston years ago) and now the LePage Administration is trying to cut back social services to asylum seekers. (The federal government does not give welfare to asylum seekers until they have become legitimate legal refugees.) Apparently the word got out...

    Some professors are more rooted in reality than others. Unfortunately, they tend to be retired. “President Lincoln called on every mother to whisper words of liberty to every listening babe,” William B. Allen, a professor emeritus at Michigan State University said in Indianapolis last weekend. “We should do the same for grownups.” Dr. Allen is the author of Reviving National Character in the Midst of Political Disorder. He was speaking at the regional meeting of the Philadelphia Society, a group of conservative intellectuals that was formed in the wake of the Goldwater defeat in 1964. Dr. Allen disputes the “nation...

    EXCLUSIVE: De Blasio administration joins fight against law that would exclude immigrants, felons from voting district count The de Blasio administration has joined a Supreme Court fight that could change the way voting districts are carved up to exclude residents like immigrants and felons from the population count, the Daily News has learned. If successful, Evenwel vs. Abbott would dramatically change the political landscape in immigrant-rich communities like New York, because it would draw districts to include only eligible voters. Immigrants, felons who have lost the right to vote and children would be excluded. In court papers filed last week,...

    For a third month in a row, native-born Americans saw their job numbers tumble while immigrants experience solid gains. According to the montly Bureau of Labor Statistics numbers just released, "foreign-born" jobs numbers increased by 14,000, while those for "native-born" Americans fell off a cliff, by 262,000. Over the past three months, the job numbers for native-born have dropped by nearly 1 million, exactly the number of jobs President Obama promised to add when he ran for re-election in 2012. During that period, jobs for immigrants grew 218,000.

    This is how far we have fallen: an American mayor asks immigrants to America to become Americans and adopt American values, as all immigrants did in the past, and they're demanding his resignation. Of course, we've seen it many times: Muslims do not adapt. Non-Muslims must adapt to them. And so it is here. But if our society and culture were healthy, the President and politicians all over the country would be rushing to the aid of Lewiston's mayor, instead of letting him twist in the wind.

Mr. Santorum, the runner-up in the 2012 Republican nomination battle, urged the crowd that converged on a hotel in Washington, D.C., for the annual Values Voter Summit to recognize that a couple of the speakers before him — Sens. Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz — have previously supported “amnesty” for illegal immigrants. “You have a lot of people that come up here and talk about how tough...

    Middle Eastern migrants are rejecting Denmark as a country in which to seek asylum, claiming that the “salaries” offered to “refugees” are not as high as other European countries. They are now demanding to go to Sweden or Finland as the terms of asylum there are more favourable. In a report by Denmark’s TV2 News, migrants told a local journalist that they do not want to stay in Denmark, but are choosing instead to head to Sweden to register for asylum. Speaking conversational English, one migrant told the reporter “We want Sweden.” When she puts it to him that Sweden...

This report separates legal and illegal immigrant households and estimates welfare use using the same Census Bureau data as that study. This analysis shows that legal immigrant households make extensive use of most welfare programs, while illegal immigrant households primarily benefit from food programs and Medicaid through their U.S.-born children. Low levels of education — not legal status — is the main...

    The Hill ^ | 9/12/15 | Bradford Richardson
    New government procedures have caused more than 400,000 immigrants to lose healthcare coverage they received under Obamacare this year, according to the Associated Press. The change in procedure shortens the timeframe during which foreign-born citizens can resolve eligibility issues, which has caused 423,000 people to lose their state-sponsored benefits. The healthcare law provides a 95-day window for citizens to resolve documentation issues and remain eligible for coverage. The time-marker was not in place in 2014, because that was the first year of’s expanded coverage. A total of 109,000 people lost coverage due to immigration-related issues in 2014. The National...

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...

Most of the visa applications have gained approval, Reuters says. Palm Beach, Fla., resort Mar-a-Lago Club has sought the most foreign workers of the nine Trump-owned businesses.

The move comes as Homeland Security officials, fed up with slow-walking by illegal immigrants, are finally playing hardball after months of less...

    Coach is Right ^ | 7/10/15 | Suzanne Eovaldi
    Originally posted on Coach is Right in April of 2010, the information contained in this piece is at least as chilling today. The St. Patrick’s Day festivities meant something much different for the couple in their 80s from Minneapolis than for the other revelers at the local American Legion Post on Florida’s Treasure Coast. Within days the couple would be returning home to a Minnesota suburb now changed forever by the huge influx of Somali immigrants whose behavior had forced them to move from their familiar neighborhood. “They are taught how to flush,” Marie (not her real name) said. She...

    Disney is firing tech employees and replacing them with (legal) foreigners. [A]bout 250 Disney employees were told in late October that they would be laid off. Many of their jobs were transferred to immigrants on temporary visas for highly skilled technical workers, who were brought in by an outsourcing firm based in India. Over the next three months, some Disney employees were required to train their replacements to do the jobs they had lost. But the layoffs at Disney and at other companies, including the Southern California Edison power utility, are raising new questions about how businesses and outsourcing companies are using the...

    The state Senate on Tuesday approved a hotly debated measure that would allow many immigrants in the country illegally to sign up for special healthcare programs that would offer the same benefits as Medi-Cal. “We are talking about our friends. We are talking about our neighbors and our families who are denied basic healthcare in the richest state of this union,” Lara told his colleagues.
  • Immigrants applying to enter US legally facing longer waits

    As illegal immigrants continue to seek legal status under President Obama's executive actions, the waiting list to enter the United States legally grows longer, as does the waiting time for those in the pipeline. American born Jimmy Gugliotta, who currently lives in Santiago, Chile, with his Argentinian wife and their children, has been waiting more than a year and a half for visas to bring his family to the U.S. He doesn't understand why going through the process legally puts him behind people who sneak into the U.S. illegally. "It's really sad to see that we've been put in the...
  • DHS caught busing in illegal Somalis from Mexican border

    The U.S. is bringing in 100,000 Muslims every year through legal channels such as the United Nations refugee program and various visa programs, but new reports indicate a pipeline has been established through the southern border with the help of the federal agency whose job it is to protect the homeland. They are coming from Somalia and other African nations, according to a Homeland Security official who was caught recently transporting a busload of Africans to a detention center near Victorville, California. Somalia is the home base of al-Shabab, a designated foreign terrorist organization that slaughtered 147 Christians at a...

    An Islamist radical recruited to Somalia from Minneapolis inspired the would-be “Texas Terror” killers, who were gunned down in Garland, Texas Sunday night by a sharp-shooting law enforcement officer before they could carry out their mass-murder plot at an art exhibit sponsored by First Amendment heroine Pamela Geller. It’s just the latest example of how and why Minneapolis—and specifically the congressional district of Muslim Democrat Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) —has become ground zero for the threat to the United States from Islamist terror groups such as ISIS and Al-Shabaab. ... The terrorist threat emanates from the Minneapolis neighborhood known as...

    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...

    Six Minnesota men of Somali descent have been charged with terrorism-related offenses in a criminal complaint unsealed last week. The fellows were allegedly trying to get to Syria to fight for ISIS, or as we sometimes more charitably name them in newspaper headlines, Islamic militants. Our local six are just the latest Westerners accused of traveling or trying to travel to Syria to join the Islamic State group, which beheads people, throws homosexuals off roofs of buildings, destroys historical wonders of the world, marries off girls at about 9 years old, stones to death adulterers and shoots children. Other than...
  • Anzac graves site vandalised on eve of UK service

    A major World War I monument in Britain has been vandalised just hours before an Anzac Day service at the site. The Australian flagpole was sawn through at Harefield (St Mary) Churchyard, and the memorial and information panel were peppered with blue spray paint. More than 100 servicemen and one nurse are buried at the site after being treated at the adjacent Harefield hospital, which was a converted mansion donated in 1915 by a wealthy Australian, Charles Billyard-Leake. The annual Anzac Day service was to still go ahead at Harefield on Saturday afternoon local time following immediate intervention from the...
