Trade Deal Supporters Try to Avoid Immigration Issue

How City Governments Spent Tax Dollars to Help the Obama Amnesty

“It’s been three years since President Obama moved to protect qualifying young foreign-born people from deportation with the introduction of the Deferred Action of Childhood Arrivals (DACA). The way DACA — which allows some undocumented immigrants who entered the U.S. when they were younger than 16 — has played out in urban United States is highly reliant on the actions of local governments and advocates, according to a new report,” says.

Lousiana Bill Targets Marriage Fraud by Illegal Aliens

Coulter – Media Tries to Distract from Immigration

“I’m impressed by the coolness and steadiness of our media in suppressing any news about immigration. It’s as if they’ve built a triple-layer fence with border guards around immigration topics. And guess what? Their fence is working! How many thousands of news stories have there been on Ferguson, ISIS, Chris Christie’s “Bridgegate” or men becoming women? But the media will never tell you about Mexicans gang-raping a lesbian in Richmond, California, an Indian immigrant in San Francisco importing 12-year-old girls he bought from their parents for sex, or three children being beheaded by Mexicans in Baltimore,” says Ann Coulter.

  1. High Priced Real Estate and Open Borders Go Hand and Hand

  2. avatar Leland says:

    Coulter is absolutely right about media selectivity, whether it’s on immigration or other stories. During the events in Baltimore there was an attack on a 61 year old white man who was beaten into a coma by a group of young blacks. No surprise few have heard of it.

    And there was another media led ***** mob in the Texas pool party incident. Teenager or not, you cannot refuse multiple requests by a cop to leave. As for him “waving his gun around”, most of those media versions of the tape were edited. They didn’t show the guy who walked right up on the cop, went into a stance, balled up his right fist and put his other hand behind his back, giving a clear impression he could have been reaching for a weapon. He’s lucky he didn’t get shot, but it’s the cop who’s the target of the media.
