Obama’s Itching For A Fight On Illegal Immigrants
30 Jan 2013 9:01 am William Teach
For all his rhetoric regarding coming together, the man is constantly looking for a fight, and will create one if necessary. He flew across the country to Las Vegas and then back to make yet another campaign speech Tuesday
(NY Times) Speaking at a high school here in a state that has seen rapid growth in its Hispanic population, the president praised a bipartisan group of senators who proposed their own sweeping immigration overhaul a day earlier, saying their plan was very much in line with his own proposals.
Mr. Obama warned, …
Here Comes the Flood
29 Jan 2013 1:57 pm Dave Blount
You know the country is in deep trouble when the leftist radicals at CNN bask in bipartisanship:
An immigration proposal crafted for months in secret by a high-profile, bipartisan cadre of senators is both a rare moment of simpatico in politics and a matter of political practicality.
President Barack Obama, who won re-election with strong support from Latinos, the fastest-growing demographic, has called an overhaul of immigration a second-term priority. Meanwhile, Republicans who lost the Latino vote by large numbers, have signaled that mainstream members might be willing to compromise on thorny …
Surprise: Democrats Have No Intention Of Securing The Border Before Amnesty
29 Jan 2013 6:49 am William Teach
While Soros funded Think Progress is saying that the border is more secure than ever (at least on paper, what with all those pesky illegals sneaking across, plus drug runners, plus the Obama admin running guns the other way), other Democrats are saying “yeah, don’t worry about that border securing commission”, and
(Washington Post) That’s a legitimate worry, according to Frank Sharry, the executive director of America’s Voice, a group advocating for immigration reform. But he tells me that on a conference call yesterday, Democratic Senators reassured immigration advocates that this …
Here We Go Again: Gang Of 8 Pushes “Comprehensive Immigration Reform”
28 Jan 2013 8:36 am William Teach
Which, just like in 2007, is all about amnesty for people who came to this country illegally or overstayed their visas while giving lip service to border control
(NY Times) A bipartisan group of senators has agreed on a set of principles for a sweeping overhaul of the immigration system, including a pathway to American citizenship for 11 million illegal immigrants that would hinge on progress in securing the borders and ensuring that foreigners leave the country when their visas expire.
The senators were able to reach a deal by incorporating the …
What Amnesty Means For The Country In Practical Terms: 7 Million New Welfare Recipients
28 Jan 2013 12:40 am John Hawkins
Is it mean to point that out if it’s the truth?
The U.S. doesn’t need unskilled labor. The authors trot out “The nation needs energetic young workers to spur the economy and support an ever-increasing social-welfare burden.” Uh, immigrants are around twice as likely as the native-born to be poor and use welfare. Among Hispanic immigrants, who represent the lion’s share of the low-skilled workers the op-ed says we need “to support an ever-increasing social-welfare burden,” the majority are on welfare. This isn’t because they’re lazy spongers — fully one-third of …
Marco Rubio Sells Out Conservatives By Bringing Back His Version Of The Kennedy/McCain Amnesty Plan
15 Jan 2013 7:54 am John Hawkins
Marco Rubio swore up and down that he opposed amnesty for illegal aliens when he ran for the Senate. In fact, in a teleconference I was on with Rubio and DeMint back in 2009, he had this to say about amnesty.
On your website, you take a tough anti-illegal stance, but I’ve heard complaints that people didn’t like your stance on illegal immigration when you were Speaker of the House in Florida. (Question from me to Marco Rubio)
There were a number of bills that didn’t pass when I was Speaker. They …
9 Nov 2012 2:33 pm Michael Fell
Since the results of the 2012 election came in, Speaker of the House John Boehner has shown signs of abdicating his role as a Conservative American leader.
On taxes he has said “For purposes of forging a bipartisan agreement that begins to solve the problem, we’re willing to accept new revenue, under the right conditions.”
Where repealing Obamacare is concerned: “Well, I think the election changes that. It’s pretty clear that the president was reelected, Obamacare is the law of the land.”
What were Boehner’s remarks regarding amnesty for illegal aliens? “A comprehensive …
Jan Brewer Enforces The Immigration Laws Barack Obama Is Trying To Break
16 Aug 2012 9:21 am John Hawkins
Jan Brewer is Arizona-awesome for enforcing the immigration laws that our increasingly lawless President has chosen to ignore.
Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer on Wednesday ordered state agencies to deny driver’s licenses and other public benefits to young illegal immigrants who obtain work authorizations under a new Obama administration policy.
…In an executive order, Brewer said she was reaffirming the intent of current Arizona law denying taxpayer-funded public benefits and state identification to illegal immigrants.
Young illegal immigrants around the nation on Wednesday began the process of applying for federal work permits under the …
The Illegals’ Charge To Stay In The U.S. = $465
4 Aug 2012 9:17 pm Matt Vespa
Obama’s new immigration policy is set to charge illegals in America $465 to avoid deportation. In other words, it’s a $465 bribe to keep the government from executing the law of the land. According to The Blaze:
The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services will begin accepting applications Aug. 15 for the DREAM Act-like policy, which is being implemented without congressional approval.
Under the new policy, eligible applicants must have arrived in the United States before their 16th birthday, be 30 years old or younger, lived in the U.S. for at least five …
Obama’s DREAM Act Order Will Allow Minor Criminals To Stay For $465
4 Aug 2012 8:42 am William Teach
Unemployment jumped up to 8.3% (adding to the historic time for unemployment over 8%) yesterday, and the Obama admin released their rules for pseudo-amnesty for certain illegals
(LA Times) Young undocumented immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as children and hope to avoid deportaton will have to pay $465, submit fingerprints and undergo a background check, according to details of the program released Friday by the Department of Homeland Security….
Excellent! The price for being an illegal is now set at just $465, which can be waived under certain conditions.

For All Practical Purposes, We Now Have Open Borders Under Obama
27 Jul 2012 7:18 am John Hawkins
Don’t take my word for it. Just read this quote from the president of the union representing Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers, Chris Crane.
Prosecutorial discretion for dreamers is solely based on the individual’s claims. Our orders are if an alien says they went to high school, then let them go,” he said at a press conference with GOP senators. “Officers have been told that there is no burden for the alien to prove anything. … At this point we don’t even know why DHS has criteria at all, as …
Immigration Is Also A Key Issue In 2012
16 Jul 2012 1:15 am Matt Vespa
Despite his moderate character, Mitt Romney could be the most conservative candidate we’ve had on immigration in over a decade. Regardless, immigration should be front and center because it is an economic issue. After all, our large welfare apparatus is one of the main reasons why immigrants flock to the United States. In addition, legal immigrants “take advantage of every available welfare program…which attributes it to low education level and resulting low income.” It’s the left-wing dependency agenda at work. It’s one of the many fiscal battles conservatives must remain headstrong …View More...
Obama Uses Military Naturalization Ceremony To Push DREAM Act
5 Jul 2012 8:14 am William Teach
Pathetic, just pathetic. (NMP) Obama can’t even let this fine folks have their day without turning it political
(NY Times) President for half the country Obama for a fourth straight Fourth of July joined with military families to eat barbecue and watch fireworks from the White House lawn, but this year he also began the day with active-duty service members, presiding at a citizenship ceremony that made 25 of them new Americans.
The naturalization event on Wednesday in the ornate East Room, which was packed with the service members’ families and friends, …
NBC Uses Che Guevara-Loving Illegal Immigration Activist to Denounce Arizona
30 Jun 2012 2:37 pm Warner Todd Huston
In a report on the recent Supreme Court decision reversing parts of Arizona’s immigration law, NBC’s Matt Taibbi gave extensive airtime to an activist for illegal immigration. The woman was shown sitting in a room prominently featuring a poster of Cuban communist, terrorist and murderer, Che Guevara, and among other activists wearing “Legalize Arizona” t-shirts. Yet, NBC labeled this woman a mere housewife and mother without noting her status as essentially a lobbyist against America’s immigration laws.
Taibbi sympathetically portrayed Mrs. Leticia Ramirez as “a mother” who just happens to have …
No, the SB 1070 Ruling is not a Victory for Arizona
26 Jun 2012 12:01 am Terrence Jackson
Forgive my pessimism, but I fail to see how exactly anyone but illegal immigrants and liberals won in the Supreme Court ruling on SB 1070, the controversial Arizona law that was intended to hold illegal aliens accountable.
Much of the meat and potatoes of the law was tossed; in fact, in my humble opinion, the most important and effective parts of the legislation was curbed, leaving Arizona with a shell of what once was a means of addressing the ballooning immigration issue.It is the most contentious part of the bill, the …
Marco Rubio’s Skewed Perspective On Illegal Immigration
20 Jun 2012 2:38 am John Hawkins
Marco Rubio talked a good game on illegal immigration when he was trying to get the Tea Party to support him over Charlie Crist, but as per usual with calculating politicians, you never know how much of it he meant. Although I don’t want to make too much of his recent comments on illegal immigration because they have SOME merit to them, I do want to note that his perspective on illegal immigration is skewed.
I often feel as if I live in two worlds. I get angry when I hear …
Florida voting purge dropping more Republicans than Democrats
20 Jun 2012 1:02 am Sunshine State Sarah
Despite all the teeth-gnashing and rending of garments from the Left (and filing of nonsense lawsuits by the DOJ), it turns out that Florida’s effort to purge illegal immigrants from the voting rolls is actually targeting Republican white guys.
As the Orlando Sentinel reported yesterday:
Of the first 107 names reported purged by the state’s 67 county election supervisors through late last week, a Political Pulse analysis was able to identify 94 from voter registration rolls. Of those, 33 were Republicans and 32 were Democrats. Another 25 were officially “no party affiliation” …
7 Reasons Obama’s Illegal Amnesty For Under 30 Illegals Is Terrible Policy
19 Jun 2012 4:16 am John Hawkins
1) It’s unquestionably illegal for Barack Obama to issue permits allowing young illegals to work. That would require an act of Congress since it would entail a change in the existing law.
2) Refusing to enforce the existing law sets a terrible precedent. Using the same tactic Mitt Romney could create a flat tax by telling the IRS not to go after anyone who pays at least 18% of their income in taxes or end the death tax by telling the IRS not to enforce it.
3) This policy is being implemented …
Emperor obama Rules by Decree on Immigration
15 Jun 2012 1:54 pm Michael Fell
Emperor wanna be barack hussein obama, knowing full well that over the years amnesty for illegal aliens has been consistently rejected by American voters, decided to bypass the American people and the Constitutionally legitimate legislative process to rule by executive fiat.
The White House has ordered the halting of the deportation of 800,000 illegal aliens, many of whom will be given work permits. In effect this will allow them to stay in America permanently, since two-year work permits can be renewed indefinitely. This is an unconstitutional bequeathing of backdoor amnesty to …
Barack Obama’s Unconstitutional And Illegal Election Year Amnesty
15 Jun 2012 1:26 pm John Hawkins
Barack Obama deserves to be impeached for trying to implement the DREAM Act without Congress. It’s unconstitutional, illegal, & dictatorial.
— John Hawkins (@johnhawkinsrwn) June 15, 2012
Let me just it simply; No matter how much liberals may wish it so, Barack Obama is not a dictator. He doesn’t have the authority to do this under the law.
The Obama administration announced Friday it will stop deporting illegal immigrants who come to the country at a young age.
The politically charged decision comes as Obama faces a tough reelection fight against Republican Mitt Romney, …
