Amnesty

Byron York: Marco, Jeb, and the immigration trap

Byron York, Washington Examiner

In the course of two days, both Bush and Rubio struggled to deal with their past positions on immigration reform. Given the mood in much of the GOP today, it seems likely there will be more maneuvering ahead as voting approaches.

Rubio Isn’t Backing Down On Support For Amnesty

Just in case you thought Marco Rubio’s conflicting statements about his support for “comprehensive immigration reform,” signaled a change in his position on amnesty for illegal aliens, Rubio’s performance on NBC’s “Meet the Press" this past Sunday settled that question once and for all. He’s still for amnesty.

Obama Throws Down The Gauntlet: GOP Leaders Pre-Surrender

Republican leaders will talk a good game for the next year, but don’t expect Obama to leave office with his agenda unfinished, because, as we explain here, Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell have already “pre-surrendered.”

Cruz fires back on citizenship, says McCain is trying to help Rubio

Jesse Byrnes, The Hill

Cruz brushed off McCain's suggestion that it was "worth looking into" the issue, saying the 2008 GOP nominee is simply trying to help Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) win the Republican nomination – because McCain and Rubio share similar issue positions, especially on amnesty.

Watch Ted Cruz Take on a DREAMer in Iowa

Leon H. Wolf, RedState

The Democrats have a relentless operation that is designed to plug these people into every campaign stop every major GOP candidate makes. They always keep video with them and their goal is to get a Republican on the news saying something damaging, and they will resort to whatever it takes to get it.

How the Republican Congress Expanded Guest-Worker Immigration

Elaina Plott, National Review

Even without support from many of the measure’s most avid backers, however, the omnibus passed, and the H-2B expansion along with it — leaving a bad taste in the mouths of immigration hawks who are vowing to learn from the loss.

Thank Paul Ryan For Obama’s Gun Grab

When the details and the text of Obama’s gun grab become public don’t blame Obama – blame Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell and the spineless Capitol Hill Republicans who elected them, passed the Omnibus, and empowered Obama to spend his last year in office attacking constitutional liberty, stripping you of your rights and fundamentally changing America. Click the link to sign our open letter to Capitol Hill Republicans, tell Ryan and McConnell "If you won't stand with us to defend our Second Amendment rights, why should we stand with you on Election Day?"

For the over 93 million workers who have left the workforce the Great Recession is by no means over as their quality of life and wealth continue to erode.

Why are Obama and Ryan Ignoring this Patriot?

This administration has a deadly blind spot when it comes to Islamic terrorism. It is not willing to allow proper vetting and screening of refugees or immigrants from Islamic countries; Congress must take action to defend the security of the American people.

Rush Leads Truth Squad Against Rubio, Says Cruz Is And Was Against Amnesty

RUSH LIMBAUGH: Marco Rubio was part of the Gang of Eight trying to secure amnesty and wishes he wasn’t. Ted Cruz never was and they’re trying to make it out like he was. And at the end of the day, when people go vote, people are going to remember of the two, it was Marco Rubio that was a member of the Gang of Eight and Ted Cruz that wasn’t. And that’s as complicated, or simple, as it’s going to end up being.

1 Day to Save America: Keep Democrats’ Muslim Right to Immigrate to USA Language Out of the CR

Congress is supposed to pass a Continuing Resolution to fund the government by Midnight tonight. Capitol Hill GOP leaders continue to include funding for all of Obama's most dangerous priorities in the bill. The latest potential threat is language by far-Left Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) that would grant Muslims an irrevocable right to immigrate to America. Only Senators Sessions, Cruz, Tillis and Vitter stood against this existential threat to constitutional liberty. To understand the gravity of this threat we have reproduced Senator Jeff Sessions' magnificent speech in opposition to Leahy's amendment in today's CHQ.

8 Days to Save America: Cruz and Sessions Demand the Truth on Muslim Immigration Terror Threat

House Republican leaders are reportedly planning to abandon their original idea to tighten screening of refugees and are instead caving to Democrats who want to only fix security gaps in the legal-visitor visa program.

11 Days to Save America: Defund Obama’s Disastrous Policies or be Complicit in the Destruction of Our Country

We have 11 days to stop the funding of Obama’s priorities; it is time to tell Republicans in Congress that we demand an end to the “show votes” and that instead of giving Obama a blank check for the final year of his administration they must exercise the power the Constitution gave them to stand as a check against Obama’s dangerous policies and unconstitutional actions.

Rubio Ready to Admit More Terrorists to USA, Cruz Ready to be Commander-in-Chief

We urge you to read this article and watch Rep. Jim Bridenstine's ad telling viewers, "As a Navy pilot, I flew combat missions in Iraq and Afghanistan... I just watched a despicable ad from one of Marco Rubio's campaign supporters suggesting that Ted Cruz is weak on security." Then ask yourself, "Who is stronger on defending the Constitution, Marco Rubio or Ted Cruz?"

Hillary Clinton And The Death Of Truth: Illegal Aliens Are Indeed "Illegal" and “Aliens”

Illegal alien “journalist” José Antonio Vargas pressed Hillary Clinton into committing to abandon the term "illegal immigrant." This bizarre exchange is the next step in what can only be described as the death of reality on the Left. While those on the Left claim that using the terms “illegal” and “alien” are insulting and offensive, they are in fact based on the reality of language, legal thought and the U.S. Code.

Jeb Bush, Paul Ryan & GOP Establishment Suckered By Soros, Or Complicit?

The names of prominent establishment Republicans, including presidential candidate Jeb Bush and Washington Post columnists Michael Gerson and Kathleen Parker appear on the far-Left website “Americaisbetter.org” with quotes implying they back bringing more potential Syrian Muslim terrorists to the United States. Are they being suckered by Soros, or are they complicit because they have not denounced the use of their words to support this existential threat to America?

The GOP Amnesty Opportunity

Paul Murphy, American Thinker

That media monopoly is gone: get this done, be brutally public about the deportations and re-establishment of existing immigration law, and chances are that generations of new Americans can be reminded that Republicans, not democrats, gave them what they came for: the opportunity to make a better life for themselves and their children in an America they want to be part of.

Marco Rubio All In To Bring More Syrian “Refugees” To America

Much as Marco Rubio would like conservatives to think that he is one of us on national security issues, when you look at what he does, rather than listen to the carefully crafted words that he says, there’s no daylight between Rubio’s position and Obama’s policies on Syrian “refugee” resettlement and Muslim immigration to America.
