amnesty for illegal aliens
The Supreme Court’s 4-4 decision in the executive amnesty case means that the lower court’s ruling invalidating that amnesty is affirmed. Executive amnesty will not be granted while Obama is president. If Hillary Clinton is elected, matters will be very different; she would likely be able to bring the executive amnesty issue before a Supreme Court populated by five liberal judges.
In addition to encouraging a massive flow of illegal aliens into the military in order to get a green card, at the same time we are downsizing troop levels, the national security risks are clear. The effort to hold such "must-pass" pieces of legislation like the NDAA hostage in order to force a legalization scheme on the American people is nothing more than a political game by unscrupulous politicians and the amnesty lobby. It does not serve the national interest!
The number of illegal alien families and unaccomanpied minors apprehended at the U.S.-Mexico border has soared in recent months, according to statistics released Wednesday by the federal government.
Obama had it all wrong in his Thanksgiving address. The Pilgrims were pioneers – colonizers who undertook a voyage for “the glory of God, and advancement of the Christian faith, and honor of our king and country.” If today’s immigrants come to America with similar goals to advance Islam -- and there’s plenty of reason to believe that many legal and illegal immigrants from Muslim countries do – then we should certainly not see their arrival as a reason to celebrate, because they represent an existential threat to our way of life.
Real estate mogul and 2016 GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump said the Mexican government forces many criminals back into the United States, that there are “thousands” of instances “where illegal immigrants that come through our porous border are killing our citizens,” and that illegal immigration “wasn’t even a subject” until he brought it up.
The Obama administration still hasn’t fully rescinded the 2,000 three-year amnesties it wrongly issued four months ago in violation of a court order, government lawyers recently admitted in court, spurring a stern response from the judge who said the matter must be cleaned up by the end of July — or else.
The Obama Administration has admitted it uses so-called offsetting accounts (which function like agency checking accounts) to take the fees it charges legal immigrants and use them to fund amnesty and other activities that Congress has not authorized. Eliminating Obama's ability to use the money it collects in fees to support amnesty and other unauthorized activities is a first step toward reining in the executive branch’s lawless approach to immigration.
20 House Republican voted on the Floor to allow illegal aliens into the US armed forces at the expense of experienced and committed combat veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan. These 20 “Republicans,” and if there was ever an example of a Republican In Name Only or RINO it is these 20, deserve a conservative primary challenge in 2016 and we stand ready to help their challengers in any way we can.
President Barack Obama’s November amnesty will give $1.7 billion in taxpayers’ cash to illegal aliens, according to a congressional study.
Senate Republicans are fuming over the House GOP’s decision to extend the standoff over the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), a move that they say uses up political oxygen and burns precious time on the legislative calendar. GOP senators say it’s time to move on to other issues, such as the budget, trade legislation, and regulatory and tax reform.
Money can take you a long way in politics, it can even more or less buy you the nomination as it did Mitt Romney in 2012, but in the 2016 Republican Primary we don’t think it can nominate a candidate, like Jeb Bush, who fundamentally has the same position that Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have on amnesty for illegal aliens.
Obama and his amnesty activist allies can't count the increased payroll taxes from amnestied immigrants twice. Amnesty either increases the deficit by billions of dollars and increases the life span of the Social Security Trust Fund by two whole years, or amnesty decreases deficits now but only by stealing the Social Security benefits of every American who has paid into the system.
“I am ready – indeed, I am eager – to begin this debate,” said Sen. Lee. “Not just because we have only twenty-five days before the current budget authority for DHS expires. But also because this debate will finally allow the American people to see where their elected representatives in the Senate stand on President Obama’s recent executive action on immigration.”
The White House is embarking on a public relations pitch to raise awareness about Obama’s exec. amnesty, which the administration claims will provide a boost to the economy & have no negative impact on U.S. workers, a claim which even O has disputed in the past.
Winter snowstorm “Juno” grounded nearly 6,000 flights on Monday, disrupting the travel of lawmakers returning to Washington and scrapping votes in the House.
The National Border Patrol Council, the union that represents more than 16,500 border patrol agents, opposes the House border security bill (H.R. 399) because it is mere “window dressing” - joining the immigration officers' union, which called the bill "a global joke."
DREAMers are planning to confront Republicans at Sat.’s inaugural Iowa Freedom Summit. DREAMers are planning “activities around the event, including confronting potential candidates to ask them where they stand on immigration reform and O's exec. action.”
“The problem is the Amer. people reject it,” Levin said. “Once again, they go through these motions as Boehner did a few weeks ago. They’re really going to fight Obama on this issue while at the same time he has Rep. Mike McCaul coming up with the tactics for the past 6 or 7 bills.”
