    Killers and sexual predators let loose in America In a revelation that will surprise almost no one at this point, the Obama administration has been caught in another lie. Records obtained by USA Today contradict the administration’s assertions the 2,228 people freed from immigration jails in 2013 only included those with minor criminal records. Instead, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials released a number of illegal aliens facing serious criminal charges that include “kidnapping, sexual assault, drug trafficking and homicide,” the paper reports. Despite last year’s furor surrounding the release, the administration continued to insist that only “low-risk offenders who...

The school district of Hempstead, in which Latinos comprise 60% of NY HIGH SCHOOL BLASTED FOR NOT ACCOMMODATING ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS Hempstead’s population, has been forced to accommodate between 700 and 1100 extra students as a result of the recent flood of illegal immigrants crossing the U.S. border.

    Democrat activist and strategist Simon Rosenberg said Tuesday that even before President Obama issues a new executive order expanding the number of illegal aliens who are eligible for temporary legal status, the threat of deportation already has been removed through the administration’s policy of not enforcing immigration law. “I think that the immigration community has, frankly, given the Democrats and the president far less credit than they deserve for how much we’ve – the president has fundamentally altered the system to essentially have removed the threat of deportation over virtually every undocumented immigrant in the country already,” Rosenberg said. “That’s...

    Business and immigration organizations lobbied Obama to expand the green card program for high-tech workers and the relatives of existing U.S. citizens and permanent residents. They've suggested altering how the federal government issues green cards and specialty visas. Rather than counting each individual family member against the overall cap, the government could instead only count the head of a family — and not siblings, spouses, or children. The White House said Wednesday it was “crazy” to attempt to divine the president's post-election plans for an immigration executive order based on a procurement request issued by the Department of Homeland...

Hensarling, the House Financial Services Committee Chair whom the pro-amnesty Wall Street Journal touted as the "leading candidate to eventually succeed John Boehner as Speaker," would "like to see immigration reform that allows more H-1B visas for high-tech workers and also creates a 'vibrant guest-worker program' for low-skill workers who want to come here to work in agriculture." The Journal also noted that Hensarling "believes a good guest-worker program is a form of border...

Although this comes as no surprise, the fact our fearless leader is waiting until after the election speaks volumes about his politics and duplicitous nature.

  • Is Obama Unilaterally Planning Backdoor Amnesty?

    President Obama has been putting off doing something about illegal immigration since he took office. He came into office in 2009 promising amnesty for illegals and promptly did nothing despite having a filibuster proof majority in the Senate. Once Republicans took over the House, his refusal to compromise on anything more or less killed his chances of passing an immigration bill. If Obama didn’t hate Republicans so much, he probably could have passed something. After all, there are a substantial number of establishment Republicans who favor amnesty. These days Obama is promising illegals that he’s going to do something unilaterally....

    As a rule, one should not panic at whatever crisis has momentarily fixed the attention of cable news producers.

Officials from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and other government agencies claim that contracting Ebola is relatively difficult because the virus is only transmittable by direct contact with bodily fluids...

As Chertoff noted, terrorist groups have proliferated “from Africa east to Afghanistan.” Frightening images of beheadings and other forms of graphic violence are all too common. And news that some Americans have gone to the Middle East...

    Immigration officials say local authorities across the U.S. released thousands of immigrants from jails this year despite efforts to take them into federal custody, including more than 3,000 with previous felony charges or convictions. The numbers are the first time federal immigration authorities have publicly detailed how many times local agencies have refused to comply with their requests. They highlight the friction between the federal government and police and sheriff's departments, some of which say holding immigrants beyond their release dates harms community policing efforts. Immigration officials say the denials pose a public safety threat as immigrants who previously would...

    Like every other western nation, Australia has their own concerns about terrorist incursion and illegal immigration. They are sometimes perceived as having somewhat of an advantage in this area because they are an island nation, so there is no physical border fence to maintain. But they’ve got an incredibly huge coastline to control and smugglers frequently try to bring small boats ashore to deliver illegal immigrants. The government has put out a renewed message, letting foreigners know in no uncertain terms that the welcome mat is not out.

    It's vitally important to stop Obama's amnesty-by-executive-order now. If we don't stop it now, Obama could legalize millions of illegal aliens and rolling that back is going to be very difficult. Thankfully, there's a way to stop Obama's amnesty right now. To make that happen, I'm announcing the Stop Amnesty Challenge. The winner and runner-up of the Challenge will win cash awards, but more importantly will have done a great public service. Summary of the Challenge The best way to stop amnesty is to challenge its supporters and show them wrong to their audience. If a politician makes a misleading...

    White House vows executive action on immigration reform after election Youth from United We Dream chant slogans calling for an end to deportations outside the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) offices in downtown Phoenix. Top Hispanic leaders asked President Obama last week to grant some illegal immigrants access to Obamacare Top Hispanic leaders asked President Obama last week to grant some illegal immigrants access to Obamacare, saying the “dreamers” to whom the White House has given tentative work permits are already paying taxes, so they deserve government benefits. The request is yet another complication stemming from the legal limbo Mr....

    Looks like these boys are going to need a double amnesty. But I’m sure Obama can deliver. Two teenage asylum seekers from Guatemala escaped a detention center in Illinois and carjacked a 91-year-old Navy veteran.The minors, age 16 and 17, were able to walk away unchallenged from Maryville Academy in Des Plaines, Illinois, outside Chicago, on Wednesday morning and carjack two victims before they were arrested more than 225 miles away outside Iowa City, Iowa, according to authorities.Police say they targeted an elderly man in Moline, Illinois, who was picking up his prescription at Walmart.

    The presidential election is two years distant, but that hasn’t stopped some in the GOP from already deciding who would make “acceptable” Republican candidates and who would not, based on their perceived degree of fidelity to conservative principles. The arbiters have all but hung a sign in the 2016 window of opportunity that reads, NO RINOS NEED APPLY. It seems almost unconscionable for this assessment to be ballyhooed even as we find ourselves in the midst of a crucial election to determine the leadership of the U.S. Senate, and the direction of America’s future. Certainly, this would seem to be...

    The Prime Minister likes to scare us by warning 'Go to bed with Nigel Farage, wake up with Red Ed'. But, Mr. Cameron, most of us have been through a worse nightmare than that. To use your own rather tacky imagery, they went to bed in 2010 with an apparently conservative, pro-British Tory leader-and woke up in the morning to find it was all just thick make-up, and that you were a fervent Europhile, a politically correct sexual revolutionary and a Green fanatic. Let's have no more mornings like that. Those Tory voters and Tory MP's who fear a Labour...

    At the beginning of the summer, the White House and Democrats on the Hill promised to highlight issues that were near and dear to the hearts of their core constituencies of single women, minorities, and young people. To that end, they launched a series of attacks on Republicans: “war on women,” income inequality, exploiting racial tensions in Ferguson, and a promise from the president to take executive action on immigration. None of those issues have resonated with their targets. The needle has hardly moved and it appears that Senate Democratic incumbents, as well as other Democratic congressional candidates, are going...
  • A Border That Is Not a Barrier Is Still a National Crisis

    About a dozen news cycles ago, Americans seemed horrified by the border crisis – horrified by the tens of thousands of illegal aliens, many of them minors, crashing across the southern border. These aliens were heading not into no man’s land and then deportation, but straight into the United States of Obamaland, an awaiting federal superstructure where travel, housing, health care, education, legal aid and even “amnesty” were promised for all, probably forever, and gratis. It’s hard not to see this ongoing episode as a federally organized invasion of the nation paid for by the U.S. taxpayer. And now? The...

    The Law: Does immigration law even exist? It's not enough that illegals cross our border with impunity. Now we have Oregon's "first lady" brazenly admitting to green-card fraud. When is the law going to mean something? Calculating that Oregonians will excuse any teary-eyed woman, as shown in a recent hit-and-run case involving an illegal who killed two girls and got away with it, the state's so-called "first lady" Cylvia Hayes, the girlfriend of sitting governor John Kitzhaber, admitted Thursday to having taken $5,000 to marry an Ethiopian teenager on the East Coast to qualify him for a green card —...
