The question-and-answer format can be an effective explanatory tool. The Orange County Register presented a friendly Q-&-A with NumbersUSA’s Roy Beck in which he could calmly describe his organization’s beliefs and policies without the arm-wrestling one sees in many media interviews given by unfriendlies.
While the open-borders crowd tries to claim virtue with its simpering sob [...]
Jeh Johnson, the new guy who replaced Janet Napolitano as head of the Department of Homeland Security, remarked recently about illegal aliens, “Everyone knows we have millions of undocumented immigrants in this country, and they’re not going away; they’re not going to self-deport.” His comments came during a February 7 speaking event at the Woodrow [...]
What do billionaire politicians do to keep busy when their terms in elected office end? One recently retired person, former Mayor Michael Bloomberg of New York City, is the newest active lobbyist for amnesty-legalization with work permits and doubling legal immigration.
It must be the cool billionaire thing to do, since Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has [...]
In light of Speaker John Boehner’s pending announcement of “principles” regarding immigration legalization with universal work permits (amnesty) for foreign lawbreakers, America’s best senator, Jeff Sessions of Alabama, has some principles of his own.
Unsurprisingly, Senator Sessions’ touchstone regarding immigration is based on how Washington policies affect the US economy and American citizens by flooding the [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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, [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
