There were two trend lines noticeable in Thursday’s hearing (full video), which was titled Another Surge of Illegal Immigrants along the Southwest Border: Is This the Obama Administration’s New Normal?. On one hand, the House Republicans are trying to look busy, with the November elections breathing down their necks. For example, Chairman Trey Gowdy gave […]
Tuesday’s Washington Times reported on its front page that Congressman John Culberson (R-TX) announced he would use his power as Chairman of the Commerce, Justice and Science Appropriations Subcommittee to strip federal cash from sanctuary cities that refuse to comply with existing law.
That’s interesting. Perhaps Washington Republicans have noticed the November elections are coming up […]
The most satisfying moment in Thursday’s GOP debate was the part of the immigration discussion where clips of Marco Rubio showed his initial campaign for Senate with promises that he would oppose amnesty. That pledge lasted a Miami minute when he arrived in Washington and joined up with the worst open-borders hacks around to produce […]
Last week the Senate Immigration Subcommittee held a hearing on temporary visas for vacations and such being abused when users never go home. It’s a great scheme for lawbreakers, since the administration makes no effort to deport them. Senator Sessions has published a summary of the hearing’s findings, posted below.
Isn’t an airplane ticket to Dallas less expensive […]
The SAFE Act will be voted in the Senate this week (if it survives a Harry Reid blocking cloture) and the bill would require the FBI to screen refugees from Syria and approve them as being non-jihad. Members of Congress who have noticed the mess in Europe caused by barbarian Islamic refugees want to prevent similar violence […]
The tech industry has been successfully moving forward at deliberate speed to create self-driving cars, trucks and buses, but the administration thinks it can help by dumping in a major infusion of taxpayer cash. On Thursday, the Secretary of Transportation Anthony Foxx announced a plan increase government meddling in driverless vehicles to expedite the process:
FOXX: “We […]
In September, two illegal alien Pakistan residents known to have terror associations were snagged by authorities near San Diego, a fact just being reported now.
It’s not exactly news that foreigners from unfriendly nations (AKA Special Interest Aliens) cross Obama’s welcoming border, but these recent characters have a rap sheet which makes them different. Still, the […]
Among the top worst ideas for America is to make Spanish-speaking, welfare-addicted, deeply corrupt Puerto Rico a state. Some Republican Presidential candidates — Marco Rubio, Jeb! Bush and Ben Carson — are strong proponents, as noted in a recent Fox News report about the territory’s money troubles:
MARCO RUBIO: I support statehood if that’s what they […]
This New York Times report is unusual in that it looks at a small number of jobs lost, an event that usually doesn’t register in the big media. The public reads about it when Microsoft lays off thousands, but many of the jobs lost to automation go in smaller increments, one workplace at a time. […]
Thursday’s Washington Post included an above-the-fold photo and story about the continued influx of “unaccompanied” children across Obama’s open border.
If it weren’t for the increased concern about security due to the jihad attacks in the past few weeks (Paris and San Bernardino) there would certainly be a lot more attention paid to the border chaos.
Do Republican Congressional leaders think nobody will notice the monstrosity that the Congress has created in the omnibus federal spending legislation?
One element of the bill would effectively quadruple the number of H-2B foreign workers for blue-collar non-farm jobs that millions of Americans need. At a time when the labor force participation rate is only 62.5 percent […]
Diversity ideology — the belief that all cultures are equal (despite daily evidence to the contrary) — certainly creates dangerous, even suicidal public policy. Today’s disturbing example was the Senate Judiciary Committee’s vote in favor of an amendment from Senator Leahy to prohibit the barring of any would-be immigrant on religious grounds.
The amendment was meant to […]
