Republicans sound alarm as White House prepares go-it-alone immigration measures

Hat/Tip to Foxnews. The GOP is preparing for an all-out battle between themselves and President Obama. All signals point to Obama taking unilateral, unconstitutional measures to address the huge numbers of illegal aliens inside the United States. “For all intents and purposes, America no longer has an immigration system. Instead, we have unsettling chaos,” Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., wrote in a letter earlier this week to Obama, urging him not to go forward with unilateral action. The administration had indicated the president plans to announce a decision around Labor Day before leaving on a trip next week to Estonia and […]

Open Floodgates on Border Push Deportations to a 3 Year Wait

  Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Thanks To Illegals Flooding The Border, Record High 375,000 Pending Immigration Cases, Minimum 3-Year Delay… President Obama has created a mess that will take years to unravel with his public invitation to illegal alien children. Meaning once they get in the U.S. it will take a minimum of 3 years to get rid of them, most skip their hearings so the number who will actually be deported is miniscule. Via Washington Examiner: Two top federal judges Wednesday said the nation’s immigration courts are in chaos, with the backlog of cases at an historic high of 375,000 for […]

Uncontrolled Immigration: Is It Selfish Not To Want To Commit Suicide?

  President Obama wants amnesty for illegal immigrants and he is threatening to use Executive Orders to make it happen if Congress doesn’t act. Democrats want amnesty and so do many Republicans and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. It’s only those heartless conservatives that want to throw the illegals out. Bloomberg News believes that trying to control the border is “Borderline Crazy”. Even Zero Hedge has a long article in which the author believes he has debunked all the reasons conservatives have to be against amnesty. The truth is, however, that immigrants, both legal and illegal, are replacing Americans in the workforce at […]

Obama to Issue Executive Order granting work visas to nearly One Million Illegals

Hat/Tip to Breitbart. It would seem that our benevolent ‘leader’ is thinking about picking up his ‘pen’ and his ‘phone’ again… After meeting with a “bevy” of big-business groups, President Barack Obama is reportedly considering granting them up to 800,000 additional guest-worker visas via executive actions. According to the Associated Press, “one of the more popular requests among business and family groups is a change in the way green cards are counted,” which would “essentially free up some 800,000 additional visas the first year.” In addition, “other requests have included removing the requirement that some spouses of U.S. citizens return to their […]

Obama helpfully reminds school districts of their obligation to educate all illegal alien kids

President Golfpants took time out from boogying with the Clintons to unleash yet another Executive Order from his omnipresent pen. This one comes via the Secretary of Education, to helpfully remind school districts of their statutory obligation to educate all those children waltzing across the Mexican border, regardless of their “immigration status.” The Obama administration is preparing the nation’s schools to accept thousands of new students who illegally crossed the southwest border and are now awaiting trials on their possible deportations. A fact sheet from the Department of Education sent to states and schools on Monday highlights the children’s right […]

Jimmy Carter Pushes US Government To Recognize Hamas

This shouldn’t come as any kind of major surprise to anyone who has paid attention, but former President Jimmy Carter is back in the news. He is really making a splash with an op-ed he coauthored, in which he pushes for our government to formally recognize the terrorist organization, Hamas, as a legitimate political actor. Aren’t you glad this man isn’t in charge of our foreign policy right now? Although, what our current leadership is sadly lacking. Does anyone really take Jimmy Carter seriously anymore? The idea that he can be so obscenely incorrect in his assessment of the situation […]

ICE changes Detention Centers to Resident Centers, offers Buffets, Internet & Free Health Care

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Revamped ICE Detention Center To Offer Illegals All-You-Can-Eat Meals, Detainees To Be Called “Residents,” Guards “Resident Advisors”… Obama’s Immigration Policy is taking a foothold right in front of our faces. I am not in favor of mistreating these folks, but by doing what Obama’s ICE Officials are doing, they’re creating an atmosphere where they’ve got absolutely no incentive to do anything but sit right here and get more ‘free stuff.’ KARNES CITY, Texas (KXAN) — A 29-acre facility which previously housed male illegal immigrants detained by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has a makeover and a new […]

Illegal Aliens Make a Video to Demand Free Health Care

The left is once again doing what it is best at; tugging on your heart strings and controlling the language of whatever particular cause they’re trying to push. This time they’ve managed to combine two hot button issues – ‘free’ health care & illegal immigration. It doesn’t matter to them that there is no such thing as ‘free’ health care. It doesn’t matter to them that a country cannot survive as long as it has open borders. No, the California Endowment is pushing the idea that the people who came to this country illegally have a right to ‘free’ health […]

How To Fight The Democrat Rhetoric On Illegal Immigration By Using The Truth

Would you care to venture a guess about what I find so interesting, possibly even humorous, about the conversation that is constantly going on between liberals and conservatives? While you are pondering that question, I’ll give you a hint. Facts are strange things. They usually pop up on the radar when you least expect them and sometimes, when you least need them to appear. Especially if your side of the conversation is used to playing fast and loose with the facts that supposedly support your argument. Facts are apt to rise up and slap you down, making you and your […]

Report: First Lady Pushed POTUS to ‘side with the Black people’; & Hollywood A-Lister bypassed Secret Service

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers & The Daily Mail. In an upcoming book about the ‘hidden lives of presidents,’ Ronald Kessler makes some startling revelations. Secret Service agents rarely speak, but there’s nothing wrong with their hearing. Agents confessed to Ronald Kessler, author of an upcoming blockbuster book about the hidden lives of presidents, that they have overheard Michelle Obama pushing her husband ‘to be more aggressive in attacking Republicans and to side with blacks in racial controversies.’ And Obama did as he was told, says Kessler in The First Family Detail. We all remember these stories, many of them were made […]

Obama’s Latest Immigration Plan: Yes to Illegal Border Crossers, No to Israeli Jews

  Our southern border is effectively wide open, with one big Welcome Mat on our side of the Rio Grande. Amnesty for La Raza is just a stroke of Dear Leader’s pen away. And he’s busily strong-arming the Congress into giving him $2.7 Billion dollars to house and feed the invaders to boot. But if an Israeli wants to visit America? Maybe to, you know, get away from the constant barrage of Palestinian rocket attacks? He’s out of luck. US Embassy in Tel Aviv Severely Restricts Visas for Israelis Tourist visa process cancelled until further notice, embassy announces. The US […]

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 […]
