There are a lot of polls around these days that refer to illegal immigration and mass amnesty, but the Rasmussen survey suggests that the less than a third of Americans believe Mexico is a friend. An earlier poll showed Americans don’t think Mexico wants the immigration problem fixed.
Mexico is by far the biggest sender of [...]
For some reason, the pollsters over at Pew Hispanic thought Mexican public opinion regarding America would be worth measuring. Perhaps it was published to reflect Obama’s Thursday taco junket to visit the new Mexican president on his home turf (n.b. Key issues on Obama’s Mexico trip: Trade, immigration and drug war).
Anyway, wouldn’t it be better [...]
The Senate Gang of Eight promote their immigration legislation as balanced between goodies for foreign intruders and enforcement of American law.
But as sovereignty defender Senator Jeff Sessions has noted, “Like 2007, this bill is amnesty before enforcement. It’s immediate legality with the promise of enforcement.”
On Monday, a press release explained the failure of enforcement in [...]
Attorney General Eric Holder recently voiced a belief that many liberals hold — that entering this country illegally is a human right — but mostly refrain from saying. These days, the extreme anti-borders ideology of the anarchist left is becoming mainstream, at least under the Obama administration.
Incidentally, elites of the Catholic church disapprove of borders [...]
A recent Fox News poll suggests that citizens are sick of immigration anarchy and want the system made into an orderly procedure. Fifty-five percent of voters want fewer legal immigrants admitted. Only 3 percent think border security is too strict, while 60 percent regard it as too lax. Sixty-eight percent want adequate border control before [...]
How could an amnesty bill negotiated in secret by open-borders extremists NOT be a disaster for national security and citizen employment? It’s what we expected, right?
Fortunately for defenders of American sovereignty, Senator Jeff Sessions has learned more details, which he can knowledgeably compare with earlier amnesties. (See his memo from 2007, 20 Loopholes in the [...]
How horrible can the Gang of Eight amnesty plan be?
Consider immediate legalization for millions of foreign lawbreakers, meaning unrestricted access to American jobs, but a five-year delay for universal e-verify. No border security, just a requirement that a plan be submitted, and even then not all of the border would be shut down to Mexican [...]
To third world moochers south of the border, the United States looks like one big piggy bank, the free stuff of which is somewhat blocked by an annoying border. That attitude was illustrated by an interview from Wednesday’s amnesty mob in DC, where one participant opined, “‘It’s better if we can put (our) two countries [...]
Are the House friends of American sovereignty waking up to the looming amnesty danger? Perhaps.
On Thursday, several of the more spine-enhanced members had a low-key presser, called a “pen-and-pad” by Roll Call (new scribbler shop talk to me). Organized by Congressman Steve King (R-IA, pictured), the event included Michele Bachmann (R-MN), Lou Barletta (R-PA), Louie [...]
Senator Jeff Sessions is one of the best list makers in Washington, in a good way. Efforts in years past have pointed out the nasty fine print in the 2011 DREAM Amnesty with 10 terrible items and 20 Loopholes in the 2007 Senate Amnesty Bill.
Now he is back with 10 excellent questions for the Gang [...]
Rep Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) visited the southern border recently, which was interesting to follow via remarks and photos on Twitter (@jasoninthehouse). He was pretty shocked at one border crossing spot which not only isn’t fenced, but has a handrail and convenient steps leading to the Rio Grande. We wouldn’t want any illegal alien to stub [...]
The Obama administration insists that the border is secure enough to justify an amnesty for millions, even though just the chatter on that subject has doubled the number of illegals heading north to get the new welfare+jobs program for lawbreaking foreigners.
Now we learn that a new kind of radar, mounted on a drone, shows that [...]
