    The Wall Street Journal reported last night that House Speaker John Boehner told donors at a fundraiser last month in Las Vegas that he was “hellbent on getting this done this year,” in reference to an amnesty/immigration bill. His spokesman did not dispute the account. In related news, President Obama is meeting with the National Commander of the American Legion this morning. Ordinarily, that would mean little, but the meeting comes just days after the Legion came out against a plan to amnesty illegal aliens who join the military. The number of people who would benefit from such an amnesty...

    Gov. Rick Scott was just about to kick into gear his Hispanic outreach campaign when two top Republicans in the Florida Senate complicated the effort by unexpectedly blocking a priority bill that would give in-state tuition rates to some undocumented immigrants. The abrupt procedural move by Senate President Don Gaetz and Senate budget chairman Joe Negron on Thursday caught Scott unaware along with fellow House Republicans and the party’s most respected former governor, Gov. Jeb Bush, who had privately asked some senators to hear the measure. In a rare joint public statement, Bush, Scott and another former Republican governor, Bob...

This year, he washed the feet disabled people in a ceremony that recalls Jesus' humble service and challenging message to the apostles--the "Servant of the servants" takes the path of radical sel-sacrifice that leads to the Cross. Last night, a Rome's  Don Gnocchi facility, which provides services for the elderly and disabled, Pope Francis celebrated the Mass of the Lord's Supper, and his homily  recalled Jesus'  striking actions: He did it this way out of love....

As he’s said many times, the Speaker believes step-by-step reform is important, but it won’t happen until the president builds trust and demonstrates a commitment to the rule of law,” said Brendan Buck, a Boehner spokesman. Early this year Mr. Boehner released a series of principles for a broad immigration overhaul, and it seemed like...

    Three key conclusions emerge from this analysis: First, the enormous flow of legal immigrants in to the country — 29.5 million 1980 to 2012 — has remade and continues to remake the nation's electorate in favor of the Democratic Party.Second, the partisan impact of immigration is relatively uniform throughout the country— from California to Texas to Florida — even though local Republican parties have taken different positions on illegal immigration. The decline does not seem to vary with the local Republican Party's position on illegal immigration. Third, if legal immigration levels remain at the current levels of over one million...

Even in places where Republicans support legalization of illegal immigrants, the party hasn’t been able to stem those changes, according to a study being released Tuesday. James Gimpel, a professor at the University of Maryland, said in a report being released by the Center for Immigration Studies that many of those in the recent wave of immigrants trail native-born Americans on education and skills and favor a broader scope for government action, which makes them “ideal recruits for the Democratic Party.”

    In the absence of comprehensive immigration reform in the U.S. House, some Republicans are pushing for a different path to citizenship – via boot camp. Undocumented immigrants who were brought to the U.S. before 2012 and who were 14 years old or younger would become legal permanent residents upon service in the U.S. military under legislation offered by Rep.

Separation from the military under less-than-honorable conditions would rescind the new residency status. The fact that a Republican is advocating this approach, and can count several...

    by John Urban | Top Right News After a disgraceful wait of 16 years since he brutally murdered a former Baylor University history professor and attacked his wife, a Mexican illegal alien was executed tonight in Texas, despite the protests of the Mexican government and attorneys.Ramiro Hernandez-Llanas, 44, was lethally injected in the state's death chamber in Huntsville. He was in the U.S. illegally when he was arrested for the October 1997 slaying of 49-year-old Glen Lich. Just 10 days earlier, Lich had given Hernandez-Llanas a job helping with renovations at his ranch near Kerrville, about 65 miles northwest of San Antonio, in exchange...

    Most Americans love to reminisce about their first paying job, whether it was scooping ice cream, babysitting, or working behind a retail counter. It was rarely glamorous, but earning that first paycheck was a point of pride and marked a milestone in a teenager's life. By the time Andrew Sum entered his teenage years, he'd already held a job delivering newspapers. Now as an economist, one of his chief concerns is the state of the labor market for today's teenagers. The employment rates for teenagers, ages 16 to 19, plummeted from 45 percent in 2000 to just 26 percent in...

    Are there places that should be off-limits to law enforcement? It's a question that some are raising in the wake of a recent incident in Pima county. The incident happened on March 23, in the community of Ajo, about 130 miles southwest of Tucson. The News 4 Tucson Investigators received a number of emails from people concerned that Sheriff's deputies and the Border Patrol stepped over a sacred line. According to a Pima County Sheriff's Department incident report obtained by the News 4 Tucson Investigators, a deputy passing by the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church spotted three Hispanic males on the...

    The former Florida governor sparks a debate about immigration—and about the party's 2016 prospects. With just nine months to go until prospective presidential candidates must declare their intentions, the debate among Republicans is heating up. In a remarkably frank talk on Sunday, Jeb Bush made it clear that his campaign—if there is one—would challenge the tea party's hold on his party. About illegal immigrants, he said, "Yes, they broke the law; but it's not a felony, it's an act of love." Because it is an illegal act, "There should be a price paid." But "it shouldn't rile people up that...
  • Illegal Immigration, Misplaced Compassion, and Healthcare Reform

    When listening to open borders agitators like former Florida governor Jeb Bush, one would come away with the impression that we owe it to the world to accept anyone who comes here illegally and pay for their living expenses.  They speak of lofty ideals loosely connected to love and compassion, but they never consider the lack of love and compassion that our open borders policy imposes on the American consumer and taxpayer.  There is no better example than the bankrupting of our hospitals at the hands of Jeb’s “lovely” invaders. My wife and I were entreated to the chaos of...
  • Do illegal immigrants have an obligation to obey laws banning them from entering the United States?

    The Washington Post's The Volokh Conspiracy ^ | April 7, 2014 | Professor Ilya Somin, George Mason Univ. School of Law
    One oft-made argument against illegal immigration is that it is morally wrong simply because it is illegal. Immigrants have an obligation to obey the law. If they violate it by entering the country illegally, that by itself is enough justification for deporting them, regardless of whether their illegal entry actually harms anyone or not. In an interesting recent Fox News interview, former Florida governor and possible Republican presidential contender Jeb Bush takes issue with some aspects of this argument: Jeb Bush said the debate over immigration reform needs to move past derisive rhetoric describing illegal immigrants. The former Florida governor...

    BOSTON (WWLP) - Immigrants make up a large part of our workforce, but many of them can not get a driver’s license. They either can’t pass the English driving test or they’re waiting on immigration status, and it is making it difficult for them to support their families. “They need to be able to work and get to work. There isn’t enough public transportation in western Mass. and they need to drive,” said Barbara Paul of Holyoke Community College. Immigrants gathered at the State House to push for the right to drive and for more state-funded English programs so they...

    President Barack Obama’s aunt Zeituni Onyango, who was denied asylum in the United States but stayed illegally for years, died Tuesday at age 61. Onyango, whose immigration status was reported by The Associated Press days before Obama’s election in 2008, had been treated in recent months for cancer and respiratory problems, Cleveland attorney Margaret Wong said. She died in a Boston rehabilitation center, said Wong, who represented her in her immigration case. Onyango, a half-sister of Obama’s late father, moved from Kenya to the U.S. in 2000 and was denied asylum by an immigration judge in 2004. She remained in...

    The clip comes from Politico but the translation comes from Mark Krikorian: Karl Rove to Jeb Bush: Wait til _after_ the election to say what you really think http://t.co/Dk3JXnjhmj— Mark Krikorian (@MarkSKrikorian) April 8, 2014 The weirdest thing to me about Jeb’s “act of love” comment is that, as recently as last year, he was positioning himself as some sort of hardliner on the citizenship issue. Remember? No citizenship for illegals, he said; permanent residency is fine but to grant them full citizen privileges would offend the rule of law. Fast-forward a year and now lawbreaking is an act of...

    Jeb Bush's "act of love" comments about immigration over the weekend drew massive headlines with some conservatives criticizing him for his latest apostasy on the issue. But, it's the lead-up to Bush using the phrase "act of love" that's actually the really important part of what he said. Here it is with our bolding added: "There are means by which we can control our border better than we have. And there should be penalties for breaking the law. But the way I look at this -- and I'm going to say this, and it'll be on tape and so be...
