Only one out of five voters agrees with Pres. Obama's and the business lobbies' central claim that passing the Senate bill to add millions more foreign workers to the labor market would "create economic growth which would provide more jobs for unemployed Americans." Instead, nearly 70% of voters chose the answer that "adding more immigrant workers would increase job competition for unemployed Americans, making it harder for them to find jobs."
The Federal District Court in Dallas concluded that the 10 ICE agents who claimed that the executive DACA amnesty violated federal law "were likely to succeed on the merits of their claim that the Department of Homeland Security has implemented a program contrary to congressional mandate. However, the Court finds that Congress has precluded Plaintiffs from pursuing their claims in this Court by enacting the CSRA.”
Last night across the street from our NumbersUSA offices, I could literally "read the writing on the wall" for Republicans who are following the advice of their national party leaders, consultants and corporate fund-raisers to flood America's labor markets with foreign workers.The words "Sen. Alexander under fire on immigration" scrolled across the electronic news screen that wraps around the corner of the complex that contains the local ABC TV station and Politico.Being one of the 14 Republicans (30% of GOP Senators) who rescued the S.

It was only after I finished speaking to the March for Jobs crowd in a park across the street from the Gang-of-Eight-controlled Senate that I realized I had failed in my little speech to use the most obvious issue of today: THE HEAT. What I saw at that moment was a crowd of Americans from all over the country who were taking on miserable, sweaty, dehydrating conditions as a sign of solidarity with everybody in this country who has no choice but take on those conditions as a regular part of their jobs making the lives of the rest of us more comfortable.
". .. thinking that some of the most patriotic people I know are Dreamers," an immigration reporter provocatively tweeted last night while watching Fourth of July fireworks. She was referring to young-adult illegal aliens, many of whom were brought illegally to the country by their parents and who are urging U.S.
Now, we must turn our full efforts to the U.S. House and another huge grassroots effort in July.There is no question that the five-month opposition that the grassroots has waged is having good results in the House, where the Senate bill is facing an increasingly hostile reception. At some point, politicians will no longer be able to look the public in the eye and be allowed by the media to claim that we must have tens of millions more foreign workers to deal with supposed labor shortages.
Republican senators considering voting for the S. 744 immigration bill will find little support among the voters on whom they most depend for both Primary and General elections, according to a Pulse Opinion Research survey of 1,000 likely voters on June 17.
