Following is Senator Sessions’ opening statement listing the lofty promises made about tough enforcement in the Gang of Eight bill, with its lack of actual means to create that lawfulness.
One problem: I wish the Senator didn’t feel the need to begin his statement with a pledge of allegiance to the institution of legal immigration, which [...]
The long-awaited study from Heritage’s Robert Rector calculating the cost to taxpayers of the Senate amnesty bill has been published, and the price tag is steep: $6.3 trillion. When he authored a 2007 investigation of the same topic (Amnesty Will Cost U.S. Taxpayers at Least $2.6 Trillion), there were fewer illegal aliens lined up at [...]
Funny, when candidate Mitt Romney suggested that illegal aliens might self-deport themselves, the open-borders gangsters shrieked that such a policy was offensive to sensitive hispanic lawbreakers. But when ABC News reports how numerous Mexicans chose to self-deport because of America’s crappy economy, that’s merely descriptive.
And guess what — the Mexicans are more comfortable to be [...]
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 [...]
In the following video, Fox reporter Eric Bolling says, “A new report from Heritage Foundation expected to show making illegals legal would add 4 to 5 trillion bucks to the national debt.”
Steve Camarota, the research director at CIS.org, mentioned the same number during an interview with Neil Cavuto a couple days ago, but I can’t [...]
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 [...]
Byron York reported on a new study from Rutgers University that found the recession has deeply affected many Americans, more than economists and other pundits have thought. In addition, globalization in the forms of outsourcing (factories sent abroad) and insourcing (immigration) was blamed for the painful loss of jobs.
Yet imperial Washington insists on plunging forward [...]
The National Journal has a cheerful article about the sociological characteristics of the official 11 million illegal residents, assuming we care about the details of foreign moochers.
However, the piece does contain some helpful statistics, particularly the following:
Who Are the 11 Million Undocumented Immigrants?, National Journal, January 29, 2013
[. . .] They’ve been here for [...]
Greeley Colorado has suffered as much as any community from the onslaught of government-mandated diversity. First it was hundreds of illegal aliens welcomed to work at the local Swift meatpacking plant with the predictable ensuing crime and influx of Spanish-speaking kiddies in the schools. After a much publicized ICE workplace raid (remember those?), the company [...]
The Daily Caller’s Neil Munro mused in the piece below over how Obama’s 2013 amnesty might play out, since King Barak has not released many hints.
Will the President present some amnesty-lite proposals that are acceptable to border-squishy Republicans and might be actually passed in Congress?
Or, will he launch a mega-ton comprehensive package that is designed [...]
A recent NPR report on the border and immigration shows how the Opravda media is helping to rewrite the rules for the upcoming amnesty battle in Washington. The long-accepted liberal framework of border security being the required first step before mass amnesty is now being reworked to a more convenient procedure for the anti-sovereignty crowd. [...]
In Washington, the official narrative from the White House and obsequious media is that the border thing is handled and therefore a mega-millions amnesty can proceed to turn invasive foreigners into Democrats.
NPR asked the question recently: Is The Border Secure Enough To Tackle The Immigration System? Naturally it concluded yes, with Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano [...]
