Below is a clip of Obama responding in Wednesday’s presser to a hispanic reporter’s questions about the ATF gunrunner scandal and whether he would make universal E-verify the law of the land.
Reading closely, it seems he would not sign either the Smith or Grassley version of mandatory E-verify into law unless it was part of [...]
Lou Dobbs interviewed Kris Kobach recently (6/28) for analysis of the reanimation of the too-evil-to-die DREAM Act by the Senate Democrats. The amnesty fanatics have to keep going through the motions for political reasons to keep certain parties happy, he says, even though the DREAMers are going nowhere this year.
Kobach also detailed his concerns with [...]
On Tuesday, the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration, chaired by Dick Durbin, held a hearing to promote the DREAM Act. See written witness statements here. Senator Durbin cooed that perhaps an illegal alien would become President someday, which tells you where he is coming from.
Senator John Cornyn (R-TX, career immigration voting grade B) did a [...]
There’s been a lack of interest in the media about what Darrell Issa found out when he visited Mexico on Friday as part of his continuing investigation of the ATF gunrunner scandal. So it was interesting to hear a brief report from him on Tuesday.
I remember my first visit to the Abercrombie & Fitch store in downtown San Francisco some years back. The large stuffed leather rhinoceros just inside the doorway made the impression of entering a safari kind of place, where one could purchase proper equipment for a great adventure in the African bush. My shopping was limited [...]
Arizona State Senator Russell Pearce is a leader in the movement for the states to do more of the immigration enforcement, since the federal government has shown little enthusiasm for the heavy lifting. He reports that Arizona is improving after instituting its state laws (modeled on federal statutes): jobs are up and crime is down. [...]
There’s been fascinating information coming out about the Obama administration’s backdoor amnesty, that it has been going on quietly for some time.
DHS Stealth Amnesty Cover Up Exposed, Judicial Watch, June 27, 2011
Officials at the Department of Homeland Security lied to Congress and the media to cover up a secret amnesty program that dismissed the deportation [...]
It’s not exactly news that when the American national soccer team plays against Mexico in Lost Angeles, hardly anyone is cheering the home team. Pat Buchanan reported some years ago that the national anthem was booed at a 1998 soccer game played in LA. And a lot more Mexicans live in southern California now than [...]
On Sunday, the San Francisco Chronicle presented a photo essay about Guatemalans being deported home from Mesa, Arizona. The one paragraph of accompanying text did not portray the event positively, particularly regarding the Secure Communities program which it deems “controversial.” The liberal press has apparently decided that open borders are more important than public safety.
Undocumented Guatemalens [...]
When Barack Obama appeared for a Spanish-speaking town hall event on Univision in March (where he said he wanted illegal alien students to succeed), he was asked why he couldn’t use his big Presidential powers to stop deportations. “With respect to the notion that I can just suspend deportations through executive order, that’s just not [...]
Like many who care deeply about America’s borders and sovereignty, I had great hopes for a universal e-verify bill from the Republican House and was happy to hear that Rep. Lamar Smith had authored one.
But now the concerns are mounting that the legislation is fatally flawed and will do more harm than good. It should [...]
The anti-borders media and bloggers have been in a tizzy over an illegal alien journalist, Jose Antonio Vargas, who recently outed himself with details on enabling editors in the New York Times Magazine (My Life as an Undocumented Immigrant).
His NYT piece was the usual formulaic sob story of the American Dream thwarted by the mean [...]
