  • DICK DUBIN AND LINDSEY GRAHAM Propose ‘DREAM Act’ Amnesty for Nearly 2M Illegal Aliens

    Sens. Dick Durbin (D-IL) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) have proposed their “DREAM Act” amnesty that would provide green cards and, eventually, naturalized American citizenship to nearly two million illegal aliens. Graham and Durbin, who hold powerful positions on the Senate Judiciary Committee, reintroduced the amnesty after repeatedly proposing the plan since 2017. (Snip) Durbin suggested that amnesty for DACA illegal aliens “is a matter of simple American fairness and justice” before thanking Graham “for his continued partnership in this important bipartisan effort.”
  • Any takers? Two senators come up with a bipartisan immigration reform framework [ Thom Tillis (R-NC) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) ]

    The headline is a rhetorical question. Senators Thom Tillis (R-NC) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) have come up with the framework for immigration reform. Is it something that can pass in the Senate in the lame duck session before Republicans take back control of the House in January? Nah. But, Senator Sinema can tell her constituents that she fulfilled her promise to make immigration reform her first priority after the midterm elections. There is a time crunch even if there was the support of 50 Democrats, much less 10 Republicans, which is highly unlikely. Any legislation would have to pass in...

    The Vatican Goes to Bat for Biden FrancisChurch provides him with cover. In 2016, the Vatican was pulling for Hillary Clinton. Just days before the presidential election, Pope Francis renewed his criticism of politicians who speak about erecting “walls.” This led Slate and other publications to run such headlines as “It Sure Sounds Like Pope Francis Doesn’t Think Americans Should Vote for Trump.” Several Francis-friendly prelates ran interference for Hillary Clinton. San Jose’s bishop, Patrick McGrath, wrote a letter to his flock in which he said that Donald Trump’s complaint of a rigged system “borders on the seditious.” According to...
  • DACA reboot to add restrictions to prevent backdoor path to U.S. citizenship

    Washington Times via Google ^ | Stephen Dinan - The Washington Times - Monday, August 24, 2020
    The government’s legal immigration agency said Monday that it will give strict scrutiny to DACA recipients who try to use a backdoor path to citizenship, as the Department of Homeland Security finalized plans for restarting the program after a Supreme Court decision this summer. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services said illegal immigrant “Dreamers” can obtain advance parole to travel outside the U.S. — which offers the indirect path to citizenship — only if they have special circumstances such as an urgent national security reason or the need for a medical procedure that can be performed only outside the U.S. That...

    Libertarian Party presidential nominee Jo Jorgensen praised a company for firing an employee who had posted “all lives matter” on her private Facebook page as an example of the free market standing up against “systemic racism.” Yes, really. During a C-SPAN interview, Jorgensen argued that Rosa Parks was discriminated against because, “what a lot of people don’t realize is that that was a government-owned, government-run bus, and the only way that racism was able to go on for so long was the government was putting it into place.” She then claimed that it’s harder for private companies to engage in...

    The Supreme Court ruled Thursday for the Trump administration in a key immigration case, determining that a federal law limiting an asylum applicant’s ability to appeal a determination that he lacked a credible fear of persecution from his home country does not violate the Constitution. The ruling means the administration can deport some people seeking asylum without allowing them to make their case to a federal judge. The 7-2 ruling applies to those who fail their initial asylum screenings, making them eligible for quick deportation. In a decision in the case of Dept. of Homeland Security v. Thuraissigiam, the court...

Electric cars are sold with lifetime guarantees and are repaired only by dealers.

    ... There were 35 amicus briefs filed in oppositions to the rescission of DACA. Among them, I could only find 10 that could generously be classified as making serious legal arguments. Within this group, the brief of Administrative Law Scholars was particularly good and is worth reading by those interested in the DACA legal issues. For the most part, the amicus briefs are naked political documents. Many rely on anecdotes as evidence that would be inadmissible in a court of law. Some attempt to be relevant to law by tacking a legal argument already made by the parties to the...

    When Congress passed the CARES Act to provided relief from the coronavirus impact, it sent about $14 billion to institutions of higher education to address the unique impact the virus has had on college campuses. Colleges and universities had been waiting for the Department of Education to release guidance to detail how exactly schools could allocate the grant money, including who is eligible. Today, Secretary Betsy DeVos and the Department released new guidance to address that and more. In the guidance, DeVos chose to limit the students eligible for the grant aid to those eligible for federal student financial aid...

    A slate of progressive youth groups have issued a list of demands they want to see presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden adopt ahead of the general election. Eight progressive groups said in a joint letter released Wednesday that they feared Biden’s centrist policies would alienate younger voters, who trend more liberal, and hinder Democrats’s efforts to unseat President Trump in November. The groups noted that while Biden racked up delegates with a March winning spree, he consistently ceded voters under 45 years old to Sanders in the primaries.

    We’re not sure what Joe Biden is hoping to do, except to pander, by continually asserting that DACA students are in many ways more American than most Americans. Back in January, he told a crowd in Iowa that DACA recipients are “in many cases, more American than most Americans are, because they have done well in school. They believe in basic principles we all share.”

    A Harvard study's findings show how not to fight the restrictionist disinformation campaign.A recent Harvard study found that people in Western countries, including America, have succumbed to many restrictionist myths. The right-wing campaign against immigration has worked. But that doesn't mean that immigration advocates should despair. The study's findings suggest that to the extent that they can make the case that immigrants don't need handouts to succeed, they have a shot at turning public opinion around. The study, conducted by economists Alberto Alesina, Armando Miano, and Stefanie Stantcheva, administered online questionnaires to 24,000 respondents in six countries: U.S., U.K.,...

    What are Pete Buttigieg’s politics?If you read CBS, The Atlantic, The New York Times, The Guardian, and a host of their friends, the former mayor is decidedly a moderate. According to The Washington Post and a few more, he’s “a traditional centrist” who embodies “the Democratic primary’s rightward drift.” And if you listen to the left-wing activists trailing him around, he’s “Wall Street Pete” and “will kill us.”His supposed moderation and support (almost solely) among white liberals torments Lucy, a white liberal who graduated high school more than a decade ago but writes for Teen Vogue. “Why I’m Not...

    More to the point, Donald Trump doesn’t think Democrats can work with him either. In his Super Bowl interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity, Trump complained bitterly about the “damage” done to his family and the country in the impeachment and trial. “I’d like to” work with Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, Trump told Hannity, but they’re so dishonest and obsessed with winning that he doesn’t think it’s possible.That sounds like exactly what Pelosi and Schumer would say, too: HANNITY: Two hundred and seventy days from now, I guess the ultimate jury –the American people — go to...

    President Trump wasn’t called a racist until he ran against Hillary. That’s how liberals operate. Play the race card every time. They’ve done it for decades. Fortunately, minorities aren’t falling for it as much as they used to. The black people no longer think they are victims – but free men – to do and achieve as they can. Just like all should be able to do. In November, two polls found that President Trump’s approval rating among black likely voters had reached 34%. An Emerson poll found that Trump has a 34.5% approval rating among black likely voters and...

    Don’t look now, but the Democrats are about to self-destruct. I wouldn’t mind that so much, really, except they’ll take our entire country down with them. This is not a new phenomenon. The Plan has been decades in the making. In the sixties, a little-known couple wrote a series of strategy papers that were intentionally designed to transform America into a socialist country. Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven (aka Cloward-Piven) have succeeded beyond their wildest dreams. They called the first of their papers, “The Weight of the Poor: A Strategy to End Poverty”. The Plan: to overwhelm our welfare...
  • America Unraveled: Christopher Caldwell’s new book argues that, for the past half-century, the U.S. has been effectively living under two competing constitutional regimes

    City Journal ^ | January 24, 2020 | Seth Barron
    Christopher Caldwell’s new book, The Age of Entitlement, offers a striking revision of recent American history that has the advantage of being readily summarized. The polarization of political opinion and the dissolution of the American fabric, he argues, has its roots in the passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, which represented a sharp break with the past. “The changes of the 1960s, with civil rights at their core,” he explains, “were not just a major new element in the Constitution. They were a rival constitution, with which the original one was frequently incompatible.” The common narrative surrounding civil rights,...

    MEXICO CITY - Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador is facing a barrage of criticism at home that he is doing U.S. President Donald Trump’s bidding after erecting a “wall” of security forces near the Guatemala border to keep out Central Americans. Mexico has bowed to demands from Trump, under the threat of punitive tariffs, to contain mass movements of migrants, most of them from Central America, who have been crossing through Mexico on their way to the U.S. border. Lopez Obrador was questioned at his daily morning news conference for a second day in a row about how the...
