  • White House looks at executive actions on immigration reform

    The Hill ^ | July 14, 2014 | Justin Sink
    White House attorneys are examining whether the president can use executive action to “level the playing field” on immigration for business owners, press secretary Josh Earnest said Monday. Earnest provided few details about what kind of action the president might take, but the comments offered the first insight into what type of authorities the administration was reviewing following the president's announcement he would look to act unilaterally after comprehensive immigration reform legislation died in the House. “The question is whether or not there are additional steps that you can take to level the playing field for businesses,” Earnest told reporters....

    Although the conversation on immigration reform tends to unfold in terms of border security, enforcement of laws, and pathways to citizenship – there is one critical aspect this debate that has failed to break through all of the other noise. Immigration reform could help the economy grow--if done the right way. Instead of getting bogged down in negotiations about amnesty and its various forms, conservatives should drive the conversation toward STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) and H1-B visas. These visas can help bring the world’s best and brightest to America--the kind of people who will start businesses, buy...

    Amid Hispanic calls for immigration leniency, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency is scrapping a program that allowed specially trained state and local law enforcement officers to enforce federal immigration law. On Dec. 21, the Friday before Christmas, ICE announced that it has decided “not to renew any of its agreements with state and local law enforcement agencies that operate task forces under the 287(g) program.” ICE said it has concluded that “other enforcement programs, including Secure Communities, are a more efficient use of resources for focusing on priority cases.” …

    The United States Supreme Court struck down some parts of the Arizona Immigration Law, but the Supreme Court UPHELD a key provision (and very controversial part) of the AZ Immigration Law. According to the Washington Post, The Supreme Court has upheld the provision in the AZ law requiring police to check the status of someone they suspect is not in the United States legally. Anyone in AZ must now "Show Me Your Papers" when asked by AZ law enforcement. I believe that this ruling gives us a glimpse of how the Supreme Court will rule when they hear the Voter...

    A federal judge on Thursday blocked three key provisions of South Carolina's controversial law cracking down on illegal immigration. U.S. District Judge Richard Gergel granted the federal government's request for an injunction against the law that's set to take effect Jan. 1. The ruling applies to portions that require law officers to check the status of anyone they stop for something else and suspect is in the country illegally. Gergel also halted the implementation of sections pertaining to the transportation of illegal immigrants and immigrant registration cards. Gergel has denied the state's request that he suspend all court hearings

The groups have filed a lawsuit asking a judge to find the law unconstitutional and to prevent its enforcement and also filed a request that the judge block the law from taking effect until that lawsuit is resolved. U.S. District Judge Thomas Thrash heard arguments from lawyers for the groups and from a lawyer for the state who said...

    Alabama's new law cracking down on illegal immigrants will likely survive legal challenges from advocacy groups that say it is unconstitutional and racist, analysts told Fox News. The law, which takes effect Sept. 1, empowers police to arrest people suspected of being an illegal immigrant if they are stopped for another reason and requires businesses and schools to verify whether workers and students are in the country lawfully. It also makes it a crime to knowingly transport or shelter illegal immigrants. As soon as Republican Gov. Robert Bentley signed the bill into law Thursday, the ACLU and Southern Poverty Law...

A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit ruled that a federal judge did not abuse her discretion in blocking provisions of the law that would, among other things, require police to check immigration status if they stop someone while enforcing other laws. The decision is a victory for the Obama administration,

The doctrine of federal preemption, like overly expansive interpretations of the Commerce Clause under the reign of Good President Roosevelt II, has been taken too far. Judge Susan Bolton’s decision on Wednesday is just one more step along the path to total federal dominance over all aspects of life in the United States. Rather than issue a preliminary injunction to prevent the Arizona immigration...

    THE legal case against the Ari zona immigration law is unassailable. The Justice Department and the American Civil Liberties Union argue that the law impermissibly "conflicts with federal law and enforcement priorities," in the words of the ACLU suit. And who can disagree? Clearly, Arizona's priority is to enforce the nation's immigration laws; the federal government's priority is to ignore them as much as possible. Case closed. President Obama last week warned ominously of a "patchwork" of immigration laws arising as "states and localities go their own ways." Sanctuary cities acting in open defiance of immigration laws have never notably...

    As widely anticipated, Attorney General Eric Holder today filed a lawsuit against Arizona and Gov. Jan Brewer over the state’s immigration law. The suit seeks a preliminary injunction to stop the law from being implemented. The court filing states that Arizona law is pre-empted by federal law and therefore violates the supremacy clause of the U.S. Constitution.The filing makes no assertion that the law is discriminatory or risks being applied in a discriminatory fashion, as the president and other officials said they feared would be the case. Interestingly, this suit makes no civil rights charges against the Arizona law.You can...

    Democrat County Supervisor Peggy West of the Milwaukee County Board vocally showcased her opposition to the Arizona immigration law and support of a boycott on the state. Her reason for supporting such a measure is simple; if Arizona were a state like Texas, “a state that directly shares a border” with Mexico, she would then think twice about it. According to her, that’s not the case. Arizona is state “removed from the border.” “If this was Texas, which is a state that directly on the border with Mexico, and they were calling for a measure like this, saying they have...

But maybe it's high time to stop the constant abuse of American hospitality? The American society is splitted into two parts...and evidences of both hold water. People expect Obama to react. The President sends troops to guard Arizona borders however will it change Arizona firm stance? Or Arizona Immigration Law is a pure fight against acting President and Democrats rather than with the illegals?

He will introduce this bill in the next legislative session. Maryland's Montgomery County Gazette issued a predictably critical assessment of the plan, saying McDonough, "never let political reality stand in the way of his crusades," and declared his proposal dead on arrival before it has even been introduced. The Gazette response, typical of leftist news media everywhere, displays in microcosm the arrogant myopia that is driving newsrags out of business across this nation. Who in...

    HUNTINGTON PARK - Waving Mexico flags and wearing white T-shirts denoting peace, several hundred high school students walked out of class Monday as protests against an immigration crackdown continued on California's Cesar Chavez Day. Students climbed over a chain-link fence at Huntington Park High School to join marchers in this Hispanic and heavily immigrant community south of downtown Los Angeles. The school had locked the gates after classes started. At least 800 students walked out from at least eight schools ranging from the San Fernando Valley to the wealthy coastal enclave of Pacific Palisades, said Monica Carazo, spokeswoman for the...

    THERE HAS BEEN a lot of discussion about a recent vote by the Costa Mesa City Council regarding illegal immigration. To the best of my knowledge, no other city has approved such a proposal, and I would like to clarify what it does and does not do. Currently, when someone is arrested for breaking the law, most officers are not authorized to ask about the suspect's immigration status. Costa Mesa's proposal would involve training the police gang detail, the special enforcement detail, investigators and possibly custody personnel to enforce immigration laws when a major crime is involved. The authority for...

    Industry wants undocumented law enforcedSean O'Hara NMBW StaffThe state and contractors all want to stop unscrupulous construction companies from hiring undocumented workers and then passing them off as independent contractors, for which they claim no responsibility -- and pay no withholding taxes. But the state says it is "shorthanded" and Department of Labor officials won't say if they'll seek funds from legislators next year to enforce a new law meant to deal with the problem. Contractors say they doubt the state has the means to enforce the new law -- and they point to recent cuts in the state Labor...
  • Catholics Back Illegal Immigrants? (God's law to replace U.S. immigration law?)

    Catholics Back Illegal Immigrants? The Catholic church has started a very controversial campaign called Justice for Immigrants. The campaign hopes to use God's law to replace U.S. immigration law. The church also wants lawmakers to develop a plan to help bring their families to the U.S. as well. According to the church, the Bible says to care for the poor, the weak and unfortunate. The church says that includes illegal immigrants. But many El Pasoans believe how the Catholic church interprets the Bible should not be above how the U.S. allows illegal immigrants into the country. While the Catholic church...

    Critics cite lax efforts to enforce federal worksite immigration laws U.S. employers continue to hire illegal immigrants because of lax enforcement efforts and the proliferation of fake documents, lawmakers and government auditors said Tuesday. The Homeland Security Department's bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, which is responsible for enforcing worksite immigration laws, shot back by issuing a fact sheet outlining numerous investigations conducted within the last year. ICE took responsibility for worksite enforcement when the Immigration and Naturalization Service was abolished in 2003. "Worksite enforcement was a low priority for INS and continues to be a low priority for...

    When Homeland Security Comes Calling: A New Agency, Aggressive Prosecutors and Injured Parties Enforce Immigration Law in the Workplace By Daniel G. Webber Jr. & Matthew C. KaneINTRODUCTIONThere is something unsettling about the image of federal agents displaying “Homeland Security” badges as they enter your client’s place of business to question the legal status of employees. This scenario is happening today, and it is the way of the future. On Nov. 25, 2002, President Bush signed the Homeland Security Act into law.1 This legislation established the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and set in motion the largest reorganization of...

    Getting Real On Immigration Law Immigration: Is President Bush headed for a fight with members of his own party in Congress? Not if he's smart, and not if he has been listening to the people. We refer, as one example, to the people of Arizona. In November, they passed a ballot initiative that requires proof of citizenship for voter registration. This week, the law went into effect after getting a green light from the Justice Department.
