Illegal Immigrants = Bad! Refugees = Good!

  The internet is ablaze this morning with the news that our government is considering a plan to resolve the crisis of tens of thousands of young illegal immigrants from Central America are flooding across our southern border. Bunkerville, as usual,  has done an outstanding job on the subject. Who would have know that such a serious problem could be potentially solved by a linguistic change. The issue of illegal immigrants has become a political hot potato in America over the last years. One attempt to put this problem to rest was to stop calling these people illegal immigrants and […]

Boston Liberals Love the Downtrodden, Until the Downtrodden Move in Next Door

Boston is the bluest of cities in one of the bluest states. They haven’t voted for a Republican in something like 3,000 years. Arguments over politics hinge on who is more progressive, Che or Elizabeth Warren. Their only gripe about social programs is that government isn’t spending enough money or hasn’t raised taxes sufficiently yet. So it cracks me up to see so many Bostonians turning out against the importation of illegal aliens into Beantown. An anti-illegal immigration rally on Beacon Hill outside the State House on Saturday, July 26 was teeming with protesters. While Bree Sison of CBS Boston […]

Obama Plans to Completely Stop Enforcing Immigration Laws

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Rep Jeff Sessions: Obama To “Effectively End Immigration Enforcement” Maybe it’s all his newfound “flexibility” that the President is enjoying, or maybe he just doesn’t give a rat’s patooty about the Constitution. Either way, it looks as if Obama is going to give defacto amnesty to all the Illegal Alien Children streaming across our southern border. Via Weekly Standard: The Obama administration is preparing to effectively “nullify” the immigration laws of the United States through an executive action, says one Republican senator. As Time reported Thursday, President Obama appears prepared to provide millions of illegal immigrants living […]

Even Obama has Obama Fatigue…

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers.   Obama has low level staffers for the minor problems. Via The Telegraph President Obama has emotionally checked out of his job a couple of years early, it seems. How can one tell? Candidates for president who brazenly assume they are the inevitable victor are sometimes accused of “measuring the drapes” for the White House. Obama, conversely, seems to be prematurely packing his bags in hopes for an early departure. Just last week, for example, the Los Angeles Times reported that “The First Family is believed to be in escrow on a contemporary home in a gated […]

Journey To The Border: Who’s Paying The Freight?

Warner Todd Huston of Publius Forum has a question. It’s a very good question which deserves an answer. His question was derived from this English version of a recent AP article about the how and the who and the costs involved in moving tens of thousands teenagers and children from Central America to the southern border region of the United States. If you want to understand how this extremely well organized human trafficking business works, the AP article is a must read. The investigative reporters learned that those wanting to come to the US are charged anywhere from $2500 to $10,000. […]

Obama Dumping Illegal Alien Children, Tells Governors Nothing

Obama just dumped 1504 illegal alien kids in NJ, and won’t tell us where they are The tip of the ICEberg…   New Jersey’s new motto on the Statue of, ahem, Liberty: “Give us your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning for Free Stuff.” Did I say “give?” I meant dump. Because we didn’t ask for 1504 new mouths to feed. Obama just dropped ‘em off, behind our backs. More than 1,500 unaccompanied children who entered the U.S. illegally have been placed with sponsors in New Jersey this year, federal officials announced Thursday. New statistics released by the Department […]

Nancy Pelosi about the Border Chaos: Never Let a Good Crisis Go To Waste

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Yes, this ‘compassionate’ Dem is focusing on how to use the chaos on our southern border, rather than on how to best solve the problem and stop the suffering. What ever happened to, “It’s for the children,” Nancy? Via NRO: House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) wants Democrats to “use this crisis” on the border to pass comprehensive immigration legislation — just as immigration hawks fear they’ll do. “The most important thing that we can do to use this crisis as an opportunity is to pass comprehensive immigration reform,” Pelosi told reporters in Texas while discussing […]

Rep. Gutierrez tells La Raza: Obama Promised He Will “Stop The Deportaion Of Our People”

Hat/Tip to Breitbart. Illinois Rep. Luis Gutierrez announced to La Raza that our President promised him he would “stop the deportation of our people.” On Saturday, Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) said President Barack Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program was a “down payment” to the Hispanic community before more grants of amnesty for illegal immigrants. Speaking at the National Council of La Raza conference in Los Angeles, Gutierrez said that Obama assured him during a White House meeting with Members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus last week that he would be as “generous and broad” as he can […]

Oops! FBI Inadvertently Classifies President Obama As a Domestic Terrorist

Well, on the bright side, the FBI can’t be sued for false advertising…   Definitions of Terrorism in the U.S. Code 18 U.S.C. § 2331 defines “international terrorism” and “domestic terrorism” for purposes of Chapter 113B of the Code, entitled “Terrorism”: “International terrorism” means activities with the following three characteristics: Involve violent acts or acts dangerous to human life that violate federal or state law; Appear to be intended (i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass […]

Amnesty Will ‘Reduce the Deficit’ & Doesn’t ‘Encourage Illegal Immigration’

Hat/Tip to CNSNews. Rep. Van Hollen: Legalizing Illegals Will ‘Reduce the Deficit’   Wait. What?! Yep, that’s what Chris Van Hollen, Democratic Congressman from Maryland says. If we just open our borders, then the deficit will go away! It’s magic, ladies and gentlemen! Magic! CNSNews.com asked: “Do you think that allowing illegal aliens to stay in the United States and putting them on a path to citizenship will help unemployed Americans?” Van Hollen responded: “I think what we need to do is pass comprehensive immigration reform, and I just came from a hearing with the non-partisan director of the Congressional […]

Obama’s Border Policies Put Us in a Pre-9/11 Stance

Hat/Tip to Town Hall. Former Border Patrol Deputy Chief: Thanks to Obama Administration, We’re Back to a Pre-9/11 Security Situation   All the positive changes, the strides we’ve made since 9/11 have been erased by Obama and his open borders policy. Hundreds of unaccompanied minors are crossing into the U.S. daily, and one of the major security concerns with the influx of illegal immigration is that we have no idea who is coming here. Because of this, Ronald Colburn, former national deputy chief of the U.S. Border Patrol, says all the progress that was made after 9/11 is now gone. […]

Former Marine & Border Patrol Agent Confronts Open Borders Supporters in Murrieta – Must See Video

Hat/Tip to The Federalist Papers.org. Those who advocate for open borders don’t even begin to understand the “Cloward-Piven-ness” of what they are wishing for. Overloading the system and tearing it down from within has long been a strategy of the left. But this young patriot understands it. In the video he confronts open borders supporters in Murrieta and he does so with grace, passion and courtesy. Yet no one doubts his sincerity, his compassion or his first hand knowledge of what he’s speaking to. His respect and love for this country run deep. He must have gotten it from his […]

Obama Laughs at Humanitarian Border Crisis

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. President Obama won’t go down to the border to witness first hand the chaos his policies have wrought upon the border states, but he is open to visiting a bar in Denver and having fun.   Who knew our ‘celebrity’ President was such a fan of horses?   So he’d rather go to a bar, have a few beers and play a couple games of pool. Well, I mean who wouldn’t? But then, that isn’t what we elected him for, now is it? He won’t go to the border to view the crisis personally, even though he […]

Obama wants $3.7 Billion to house illegal aliens? Why not just buy each kid a bus ticket?

It’s certainly be cheaper, and expedient. Sends a message too. But no, Obama would rather ship them to Syracuse. The Sisters of St. Francis confirmed today that federal officials are exploring the idea of using the religious order’s vacant Syracuse buildings to house immigrant children awaiting deportation. Officials from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Administration for Families and Children traveled to Syracuse on Monday to inspect six buildings on the 10-acre Franciscan campus at Court Street and Grant Boulevard, said Rochelle Casella, speaking for the Sisters of St. Francis of the Neumann Communities. The inspection is part […]

BOMBSHELL: Leaked Memo Shows Obama Lied About Border Crisis

Hat/Tip to the Conservative Tribune and Breitbart. Surprise, Surprise! President Obama was caught in yet another lie. President Obama and his administration fail at many of the basics of governing a free republic, but the two things they seem to excel at are creating scandals and lying about them. After the recent VA scandal, the IRS targeting ordeal, and of course, Benghazi, much of the nation already believes that Barack Obama lies about pretty much everything. This is why it will likely not shock Americans, especially those who are well informed, to find out that the president has been telling […]

Obama Spokesman Blames Illegal Children on President Bush

Hat/Tip to The Rush Limbaugh Show. Once in a while the MSM actually grows a set and asks this administration a tough question. Recently Jonathan Karl of ABC asked Obama’s White House Spokesperson, Josh Earnest about the situation on the border with all the illegal pouring across our southern border. Earnest did a tap dance that would make Jay Carney proud. So at first, Earnest tries to defend his boss by saying they’re deporting illegal minors in record numbers, but Karl is tenacious and doesn’t let it go. Then Earnest comes back with that old Democrat standby, blame Bush. There’s […]

Despite Gangsters & Criminals Apprehended at Border, They’re “Not Dangerous”

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Obama Regime: Central American Illegals Are “Not Dangerous” They’re “family members”. So were the Manson Family. Via Breitbart: The Obama administration claimed Sunday that illegal immigrants flooding across the border from Central America are not dangerous, despite numerous reports of gangsters and criminals being apprehended at the border. On ABC’s This Week, U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Gil Kerlikowske said of the nearly 50,000 illegal immigrants who have crossed the border since October of last year, “these are family members.” “These are not gang members,” he said. “These are not dangerous individuals.” At a House Homeland […]

Obama Brings 300,000 Illegal Alien Kids to Homes in America

  Hat/Tip to The Daily Caller. The word is out in Central America. Come to America and you can stay forever, enjoying all kinds of free stuff on the American Taxpayer’s dime. And who is helping to perpetuate this mantra? President Barack Obama and his cronies. The vast majority of 50,000 unaccompanied youths and children who have illegally crossed the Texas border during the last few months have been successfully delivered by federal agencies to their relatives living in the United States, according to a New York Times article. A second New York Times article report revealed that officials have […]

Medical staff warned: Keep your mouths shut about illegal immigrants or face arrest

Hat/Tip to Todd Starnes via Fox News. Watch the latest video at video.foxnews.com Okay, it looks more and more everyday that our government, under the auspices of the Obama administration is not only ramping up the numbers of illegals coming into the country, but hiding their actions and the results of their actions as well. A government-contracted security force threatened to arrest doctors and nurses if they divulged any information about the contagion threat at a refugee camp housing illegal alien children at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas, sources say. In spite of the threat, several former […]

Obama Adviser Reasserts U.S. is ‘Islamic Country’

Hat/Tip to TeaParty.org Homeland Security senior fellow also touts rise of ‘Caliphate’ This is coming from the same Obama appointee that says the Constitution is “Islamic Compliant.” Last fall, a top Obama Homeland Security adviser generated controversy when he wrote that the U.S. Constitution was ”Islamically compliant.” Mohamed Elibiary returned to the topic in a Saturday morning Twitter post: “… I said America was an Islamic country not a Muslim country. Pls study up on the difference b4 attacking me.” The post appears to have been deleted from Elibiary’s Twitter feed. Elibiary declined to explain what he meant when the Investigative Project wrote […]
