Immigration Attorney Guilty of Fraud
USA Today has a story about the case of an immigration attorney who told his client to lie under oath and now faces prison. “The case cost Wenger his career and his freedom — he was sentenced to 18 months in federal prison on Feb. 5 — but it also triggered an outcry of support from immigration lawyers who say the heartache and struggles they face defending immigrants in no-win situations is sometimes too much to bear.”
Pope Expected to Discuss Immigration
“Pope Francis is expected to address immigration during his visit Wednesday to the U.S.-Mexican border, as well as pay respects to those who died trying to cross into the United States. People in Chicago who work with immigrants will be paying attention to his message,” ABC7Chicago.com says.
Trump Expresses America’s Frustration on Immigration
“Newton’s Third Law of Motion famously states that “for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.” Sir Isaac, it seems, was more than an astute observer of the natural world; intentionally or not, he was also part political prophet,” says Greg Jones at The Federalist.
“The meteoric rise of Donald Trump in America and the resurgence of the Right across Europe are eliciting fits of outrage and disbelief among the Left in this country and across the pond. Yet to a large degree the Left has only itself to blame.”
Cruz Focuses on Conservative Legislation During Campaign
“Ted Cruz pushed a host of conservative priorities on Capitol Hill last week that he hopes will boost his presidential campaign ahead of the South Carolina primary,” Nola.com reported.
“With a brief return to the Senate, Cruz claimed progress on a series of measures that are likely to appeal to Republican primary voters in the hotly contested campaign. He wrote a letter to President Obama on North Korea policy, voted for North Korea sanctions and co-sponsored a bill to enforce fines on undocumented immigrants.”
Cruz, Rubio Duke it Out During Weekend Debate
“Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz have battled it out on a debate stage before over illegal immigration, but it got uniquely testy Saturday night at the Greenville, S.C., debate. After exchanging barbs over legislation, Cruz at one point alluded to a Univision interview Rubio had given where he discussed immigration in Spanish. ‘I don’t know how he knows what I said on Univision, since he doesn’t speak Spanish,’ Rubio countered,” according to USAToday.
Sanders Vote Against Guest Workers Faulted by Clinton
“In last week’s battle over the meaning of the word ‘progressive,’ Hillary Clinton charged that Bernie Sanders had fallen short in failing to back immigration reform in 2007. ‘I don’t think it was progressive to vote against Ted Kennedy’s immigration reform,’ Clinton said, after slamming Sanders for his past opposition to the Brady Bill. She repeated this line of attack last night,” Daniel Denver says at Salon.com.
“The Washington Post’s Callum Borchers called this “a solid answer by Clinton.” If so, that’s largely because many don’t understand the substance or politics of guest worker programs. Many immigrant rights groups have long opposed guest worker programs, and for good reason. They are geared toward maximizing exploitation and minimizing protection of immigrant workers.”
Trump Ad Focuses on Crime
“Donald Trump has rolled out a hard-hitting and emotional TV ad in South Carolina that shows how African-Americans are suffering from illegal immigration. ‘Jas Shaw was a 17-year-old football star who was gunned down just outside his home. His killer? An illegal immigrant gang member who just got out of prison,’ says the narrator. ‘Jas’s dad, Jamiel, is supporting Donald Trump for president because he knows he will end illegal immigration.,” Breitbart News says.
