Word is getting around that Mexico is becoming more middle class (with 39 percent of Mexicans now so estimated), despite the grifter nation’s attempts to keep that information secret from the United States. Mexican elites would prefer that clueless Washington think of the crackhouse next door as poor relations, needing a continuing handout of free [...]
The Associated Press has a cheerful pro-amnesty item for Memorial Day weekend, noting how the 1986 legalization allowed Mexican farmworkers to get out of the fields and into better jobs. AP’s Mexican hero, Paulino Mejia, moved from agricultural picking to construction, a field once prized by Americans for its decent pay until immigrants and illegal [...]
The President has mostly kept out of the mega-amnesty/immigration tsunami debate, since his presence is considered unhelpful by open-borders extremists — which is curious when you think about it. But on Tuesday Obama signaled his support for lawbreaking foreigners to become future Democrats by welcoming a batch of well scrubbed DREAMer kiddies to the White [...]
On Tuesday, Congressman Steve King organized a presser with several House colleagues who strongly oppose the Senate amnesty bill.
The other speakers included Republican Congressmen Louie Gohmert, Mo Brooks, Steve Stockman, John Fleming and Paul Gosar.
Rep. King noted that he has been a fierce foe of Obamacare, but sees the Senate amnesty as “far, far worse.” [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
