Thursday saw an instance of dueling press conferences in the big capitol city. On one side was 7/8 of the Gang of Eight Senators, plus an assortment of other high-profile open-borders enthusiasts in suits, from friend-of-hostile-Islam Grover Norquist to AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka, and representatives from the Chamber of Commerce and la Raza (“the Race”).
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 [...]
The issue of taxpayer-funded financial aid for illegal alien students in the state has been moving along through the system, and now it is here. Jerry Brown signed the California Dream Act into law in October 2011.
As Assemblyman Tim Donnelly remarked at that time, “Tuition rates have been going up, the universities have budget cuts [...]
Of all the harmful policies Obama has brewed up in the last four years, one of the most concerning from a national security perspective is his catch-and-release amnesty for anybody claiming to be a DREAMer kid. Any semi-young person caught crossing the border illegally merely has to say he is covered by Obama’s administrative amnesty:
Liberal Californians like to think the state is ahead of the rest of the country. And in many ways yes, California is a leader — in overspending, in crazy unilateral environmental restrictions, and in supplying taxpayer aid to illegal alien college students even while middle class citizens struggle with costs.
Below, a diverse crowd attended a [...]
One might think that a prudent public official with an important job like Senator would normally do a background check of all persons working in his office. Apparently Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ) didn’t, and as a result welcomed an illegal alien who was also a sex-offender to volunteer in his Washington office.
What’s notable in this [...]
We knew this was coming, since the California DREAM Act was signed into law by Gov Jerry Brown in October 2011, but it is still a bitter pill now that actual implementation is here. The cost to taxpayers is at least $13 million yearly, at a time when chainsaw cuts have been taken to the [...]
At a time when college costs are rising more rapidly all the time (up 1120 percent since 1978), foreign interlopers are being given special benefits for their education.
The kiddies in question are illegal aliens in Philadelphia (pictured) blessed by King Barak with no-deport status because they were fortunate (but not culpable!) when their parents supposedly [...]
The President isn’t hiding his generosity toward illegal aliens. He may not launch his somewhat stealthy amnesty initiative right away because of spending battles with Congress, but he certainly doesn’t want his foreign supporters to think he has forgotten about them — not to worry!
Obama has used his mighty king-like powers to relieve lawbreaker foreigners [...]
Hispanics have put aside polite pleadings for their holy grail, a mass amnesty for tens of millions to gain an even larger load of free stuff. Now they raza gang figures (wrongly) that Obama owes them for his recent re-election, and the vocalizations are sounding like threats. After all, he promised amnesty four years ago [...]
Certain generous rich persons and institutions of northern California think that illegal aliens attending an elite university deserve financial help. It’s sad to see the prominent Haas family drawn to such an unworthy cause, the promotion of lawbreaking. Their grants have leaned toward diversity do-goodery, although with worthwhile efforts like support of local parks. However, [...]
Amnesty pest Congressman Luis Gutierrez (pictured) may be implanting the Democrat kiss of death on Florida Senator Marco Rubio. The Illinois Democrat recently heaped accolades upon Rubio, a Republican, saying his kindly immigration approach was “key” to getting more US government goodies for foreigners.
Gutierrez also said Rubio was smart, “a friend and an ally” who [...]
