Amnesty 2.0: Phone Today To Oppose

By Anne Manetas, Updated Tuesday, January 29, 2013, 12:10 PM EDT

While the current proposal is short on details, Rosemary Jenks has reviewed it and tells me it is basically the same sweeping amnesty we defeated in 2007 with "updated" language to re-brand the amnesty. We had hoped that the new voices of Senators Rubio (R-FL) and Lee (R-UT)[both members of the so-called Senate "Gang of Eight"] would bring some new perspective to an immigration proposal so we were especially disappointed to see their Amnesty 2.0 proposal be nothing more than a rehash of the failed 2007 amnesty.

ICE agents under threat of firing & losing pension if they enforce immigration laws passed by Congress

By Roy Beck, Saturday, August 18, 2012, 9:03 AM EDT

After calling on the public to support their efforts through an on-line petition, the officers of the union representing federal immigration agents have stepped up their attacks on the Administration's nullification of immigration laws. The union officers say ICE Agents nationwide "are now under threat of disciplinary action, up to and including the loss of their jobs and retirements, simply for attempting to enforce federal laws."

ICE agents' union posts petition to protest Obama Administration orders to disobey immigration laws

By Roy Beck, Wednesday, August 15, 2012, 11:27 PM EDT

It shouldn't be surprising, but it IS reassuring that a union has stepped forward to try to slow down the Obama Administration's increasingly brazen unilateral decisions to ignore -- and even violate -- immigration laws. Earlier today, the union posted a petition on its website that challenges the Administration.  And it has asked American citizens to sign the petition to back up federal employees who feel like they should enforce the immigration laws passed by Congress.

House Subcommittee Hearing on H-1B Visas Misses an Opportunity to Stand Up for Unemployed Americans

By Jonathan1352 of VA, Thursday, March 31, 2011, 5:23 PM EDT

The House Immigration Subcommittee hosted a hearing on the impact of the H-1B visa program and whether it meets the needs of the U.S economy and its workers. Unfortunately, the issues of fraud and program management remained the primary topics of concern instead of whether or not foreign workers are still necessary during the peak of our recession.

Immigration and Health Care: Legislation on the Table WILL Extend Health Care to Illegal Aliens

By James Edwards, Updated Wednesday, September 9, 2009, 9:47 PM EDT

Just about the time the Center for Immigration Studies was holding a press briefing at the National Press Club about the immigration and health reform connection, proponents from President Obama on down were denying that illegal aliens would receive taxpayer-funded health care under pending legislation.

Will You Help Us with Our Latest Petition Drive?

By Phillip9695 of DC, Updated Monday, March 30, 2009, 10:49 AM EDT

Many of you responded to my last blog stating that we need far more signatures on a petition to have any type of impact. But are you willing to help us distribute this one to truly make an impression? As “Gary6333 of NY” commented, “Four times bigger is still not enough! EVERYONE needs to push this site EVERYWHERE they go. MAKE THIS MOVEMENT GROW!”

PROF. SWAIN: No task too audacious for Obama -- except protecting U.S. jobs from illegal workers

By Roy Beck, Saturday, February 28, 2009, 2:58 AM EDT

Professor Carol Swain

Carol Swain, professor of law and political science at Vanderbilt University, has noted in the Nashville Tennessean that Pres. Obama has now promised to lead the way to cure cancer, end foreign oil dependence and guarantee higher education to everyone who wants it. But when it comes to keeping illegal aliens out of U.S. jobs so that unemployed Americans (especially Blacks and Hispanics) can have them, Obama can't seem to lift a finger.

'But he hasn't got anything on.' LA Times clarifies Obama's deportation record; debunks prevailing myths

By Jeremy Beck, Wednesday, April 2, 2014, 12:22 PM EDT

Two and a half years after President Obama told reporters that his deportation statistics were "a little deceptive" and three weeks after DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson confirmed that the current administration's deportation numbers are mostly made up of border apprehensions and are counted differently than in previous administrations, the Los Angeles Times has published an in-depth clarification of Obama's record.

If Illegal Aliens are Already Citizens, then Joe Biden is Already President

By Van Esser, Monday, March 31, 2014, 5:00 PM EDT

Vice President and potential presidential candidate Joe Biden gave a speech last week in which he said the 11 million illegal aliens in the United States “are already Americans.” Famous for pandering to audiences and, uh, stretching the truth, Biden also has been a champion for causes irrespective of whether they are consistent with U.S. laws or the Constitution. So if he’s misguided enough to think illegal aliens are citizens, perhaps one day Biden will dispense with the formalities of an election and declare he’s already president. Or at least the comic-in-chief.

Executive Amnesty Review Promises More Twists and Turns (of the Law)

By Van Esser, Thursday, March 20, 2014, 2:32 PM EDT

In order to placate illegal-alien advocates who falsely claim the Administration has deported record numbers of illegal aliens, President Obama announced that DHS would review options for making immigration enforcement “more humane.” Translation: they’ll find more ways to ignore the law and make illegal aliens comfortable while the comprehensive amnesty alliance pursues House Republican hold-outs.
