Curb Your Hysteria: The Trump Administration is Just Doing Routine Immigration Enforcement

After eight years of virtually no immigration enforcement, except against a small number of violent criminal aliens, illegal alien advocates and many in the media have worked themselves up into a state of near hysteria over, what prior to 2009, was routine enforcement of our immigration laws. Last week, the Department of Homeland Security issued new guidelines for enforcement of immigration laws. The guidelines continue to prioritize the apprehension and removal of criminal aliens, national security risks, fugitive aliens, and public charges. While not a priority for removal, other categories of illegal aliens will not be exempted from enforcement...

Senate Bill to Make Immigration Merit-Based is a “Plot” against “Nonwhite Americans,” Says Politico and HuffPo

Senators Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) and David Perdue (R-Ga.) are part of a sinister cabal (along with Donald Trump), scream Tuesday’s headlines in Politico and the Huffington Post. Cotton and Perdue’s plan, introduced on Feb. 7, seeks to carry out an overhaul of our nation’s immigration policy almost exactly according to the blueprint devised by civil rights icon Barbara Jordan and a group of bipartisan commissioners in the 1990s, and endorsed by President Bill Clinton. The Reforming American Immigration for Strong Employment (RAISE) Act would overhaul the way we select immigrants to come to the United States by eliminating family...

Nancy Pelosi’s “Alternative Facts” about Sanctuary Policies

In the early 2000s, General Motors discovered a deadly flaw in the ignition switches in some of its cars, but chose not to reveal that information to its customers. That cover-up by GM resulted in 124 deaths. GM was found to be criminally liable for those deaths and incurred a $900 million penalty in addition to civil fines and a hefty bill for repairing the dangerous defect in their products, all of which cost the company some $2 billion in total. Needless to say, GM was also required to stop using this dangerously defective part in the vehicles they sell to unsuspecting consumers. GM’s appalling attempt to avoid a costly recall, even as they knew their defective product was responsible for numerous deaths, did not escape the attention of Congress. In 2014 congressional committees grilled GM’s CEO, Mary Barra, expressing understandable outrage that her company valued the corporation’s bottom line more than the lives of its customers. This type of arrogant disregard for human life, however, is not limited to giant corporations. Some 300 jurisdictions across the United States maintain sanctuary policies that shield illegal aliens, including criminal aliens, from deportation. These policies – dangerously defective products devised by city, county and state governments – have been directly responsible for many more deaths than GM’s indefensible actions. Yet, such policies are staunchly defended by federal, state and local government...

Jerry Brown Braces California for a $1.6 Billion Deficit as the State Considers Legal Defense Fund for Illegal Aliens

California is a fiscal hole again. A deep fiscal hole, like $1.6 billion deep, warns Gov. Jerry Brown as introduced the state budget. That means more cuts in services, benefits, infrastructure repairs, education budgets, and general bad news for Californians. But one group of California residents seems likely to be spared the pain of the state’s fiscal crisis: The ones who earned their special place in the hearts of California lawmakers by violating U.S. immigration laws. Even with a $1.6 billion deficit looming (and politicians often lowball bad budget numbers), two of the first bills likely to be taken...

Advocates for Illegal Aliens Declare War on the American Justice System

The American justice system exists to deliver fair and timely justice to those accused of wrongdoing and to their victims. The integrity of the judicial process is the foundation of any enlightened society. That bedrock foundation of our republic will soon be under attack by elected officials and tax-exempt foundations who openly vow to wage “lawfare” on our federal courts. The assault on the federal judicial system is being led by Luis Gutierrez, who ostensibly represents the citizens of Illinois’ 4th congressional district, but has proclaimed himself to be the representative of the nation’s illegal alien population. Gutierrez recently...
