Legalization with Work Permits (Amnesty) Has Powerful Friends

House Judiciary Chair Bob Goodlatte appears to have suffered some direct hits after his recent declaration of support for legalization on Spanish-language television.

The Daily Caller quoted Goodlatte from his recent performance (Goodlatte reverses statement on amnesty, again, 1/13/14):

“I see no reason why we can’t also have an agreement that shows how people who are not [...]

California Taxpayers Dinged $65 Million to Roll Out Illegal Alien Licenses

In the one-party Democrat state, the implementation of drivers licenses for lawbreaking foreigners costs a lot and the taxpayers are forced to pony up. Increased fees on the beneficiaries could have been used, but no, the law-abiding public must be billed because Americans are rich and illegal aliens are poor victims of capitalist greed.

Or something [...]

House Republicans Connect Amnesty and Joblessness

The good news: a group of pro-sovereignty GOPers signed a letter to the President condemning immigration policies that would admit millions more foreign workers when unacceptable levels of American unemployment persist.

The bad news: only 16 members signed the letter: Mo Brooks (R-AL), Lou Barletta (R-PA), Kerry Bentivolio (R-MO), Tom Cotton (R-AR), Walter Jones (R-NC), Phil Gingrey [...]

Goodlatte Comes Out for Legalization (Amnesty) on Spanish-language TV

Politico reports that the powerful Chair of the House Judiciary Committee Bob Goodlatte believes he has the “solution” for the problem of 11 million illegal aliens living openly in the shadows.

Note to clueless Republicans: illegal aliens don’t cross the burning Arizona desert so they can become citizens to vote in US elections. They come for [...]

My Letter about Unemployment and Amnesty Is Printed

The Washington Times published my LTE on Tuesday, which was an effort to insert a little sanity into what passes for policy debate in the big capitol city these days.

The Congressional Budget Office statistics are taken from a statement by Senator Jeff Sessions.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Amnesty would create more joblessness, Washington Times, January 7, [...]

Nevada: 75 Percent of Illegal Aliens Fail Test for Driving Card

Wait, you mean unlawful foreigners actually had to DO something to get their freebie? They don’t just get a driving permit merely by arriving at the door of the DMV? They are expected to LEARN the traffic laws of Nevada in order to pass a written test?

Doubtless la Raza will now lobby to lower the [...]

Senator Rand Paul Promotes Legalization for Illegal Aliens

Why can’t anyone wearing a suit not understand the connection between permissive immigration (legal and illegal) and American unemployment? Do universities no longer teach supply and demand in Econ 101?

To liberals and their media poodles, there is no contradiction between a segment on a suffering long-unemployed American worker followed by an item about mass legalization [...]

Crowds of Illegal Aliens Jam Nevada DMVs to Procure Driver Cards

The joint has been jumping at the Nevada DMV, as thousands of unlawful foreigners have sought possession of driving authorization cards. The new year allows illegal aliens to register to receive a document that permits legal driving within the state.

As usual, greasy politicians in support claimed that the policy would increase highway safety and lead [...]

Unemployment Pain Gets Media Attention Now -- but Will Joblessness Be Highlighted in 2014 Amnesty Debate?

Now that long-term unemployment benefits for over a million workers are about to end, the press is full of stories about Americans who cannot find jobs. It’s a fine opportunity for the liberal media to bash hard-hearted Republicans who don’t want to extend the program (which would require still more insane borrowing).

MSNBC went so far [...]

Pew Poll: Exemption from Deportation Is More Important to Illegals Than Citizenship

Recent research shows what has been obvious for a long time — many illegal aliens don’t want to join the American community but care only about being able to work here and make money without being repatriated. Unobstructed job thievery is Job #1!

Even among legal immigrants, a sizable number do not want to become American [...]

Apple CEO Regards Amnesty for Lawbreakers as Morally Correct

One might think that the top executive of one of the world’s premier companies would appreciate the rule of law as necessary to conducting business, but not so much for Tim Cook (pictured), the successor to Steve Jobs.

Perhaps he is just using the morality dodge because he doesn’t want to say that multi-millionaires depend on [...]

Victim Visa Quickly Reaches Limit

This year’s allotment of 10,000 U visa for crime victims has been used up since the visas opened up in October, so naturally the liberal open-borders types thinks America needs more additional slots for the fraud magnet category. Most of the U visas go to illegal aliens with the only qualification being claims of victimhood, [...]
