Obama Amnesty Extends to Hiring Illegal Aliens

“President Obama took office vowing to go after unscrupulous employers who hire illegal immigrants, but worksite audits have plunged over the last year and a half, according to a report released Tuesday by the Center for Immigration Studies, tumbling along with the rest of immigration enforcement,” the Washington Times reports.

“Fewer owners are being arrested, and fewer fines are being collected as well, according to the report, which suggests that even as he offers amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, Mr. Obama is giving a similar free pass to ever more businesses who provide the jobs magnet that draws them.”

Boston Gov’t Helps Illegal Aliens Seek Amnesty

“Boston joined five other cities Tuesday to partner with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services to market citizenship to legal and illegal immigrants in their cities.What do you think?” the Daily Caller writes.

“For the next three years, Boston will encourage legal and illegal residents to pursue citizenship by providing them with tools and education. Boston Public Library branches will establish “Citizenship Corners” to ensure easy access to citizenship preparation materials, and USCIS will provide training about the naturalization process to librarians and city officials, so they can help immigrants in search of information.”

Coulter: Swipe Left to Deport

“Conservative commentator Ann Coulter is taking on immigration reform in her new book Adios America. ‘I could do it like Tinder,’ Coulter joked about running the nation’s immigration system, at a book signing hosted by Breitbart News on Tuesday. ‘I could decide like that about who to admit into this country. I would have it all decided before breakfast,’ she added,” The Hill writes.

Carson: Hispanic Voters Care About More Than Immigration

“Dr. Ben Carson pushed back against assumptions that Latinos only care about immigration reform and preached unity during a speech Wednesday at a conference of Latino public officials. The 2016 Republican presidential contender opened by telling the crowd at the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials conference that many people advised him explicitly focus on immigration during his remarks,” The Hill reported.

Jeb Bush Pushes “Comprehensive” Immigration Reform on Campaign Trail

“Jeb Bush capped his first official campaign swing through Iowa with an impassioned plea for comprehensive immigration reform, saying it will help the United States compete globally—and help Republicans defeat Democrats at the ballot box. It folded neatly into Bush’s broader message framed implicitly by his argument for electability—that he, more than any other Republican candidate, has a proven record of passing conservative policy and winning large numbers of swing voters in a purple state,” National Journal wrote.

  1. They’ve Turned America into a Whore

    We’ve become a commodity to buy and sell.

  2. avatar Leland says:

    We’re just becoming a product to be sold off to the rest of the world. The Democrats cater to illegals and given the chance to correct that, the Republicans do nothing. What about all those promises last fall that said vote for us and we will stop amnesty. We voted and you failed on your end.

    I think there is a good case to be made that this present TPP free trade deal violates the constitution. Obviously the president is given power to negotiate treaties and the Congress can approve or disapprove, but there are too many things in this deal that seem to blur the lines.

    There is nothing in the language of the constitution that gives the president the right to set immigration limits. That is clearly given to Congress in the naturalization clause. And in the past it is Congress that set limits for visa workers. This deal transfers that power to the president.

    The constitution also says any powers that are not specifically assigned to the federal government shall then be the province of the states. But this treaty allows foreign corporations and governments to sue to block any state laws, like environmental, that interfere with their “right” to make a profit. Sounds unconstitutional to me. How does the federal government pass a treaty that gives away the rights of any state?
