Tax refunds for illegal immigrants?

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has officially confirmed that it’s going to allow illegal immigrants to apply for up to three-years-worth of tax refunds. Yes, you read that right. Illegal immigrants, who broke the law by entering the U.S. and continued to break the law by residing here, can now claim benefits from the IRS. The policy, of course, is all thanks to President Obama’s executive action on amnesty. On Capitol Hill, some are rightfully labeling it <a href="http://www.wsj.com/articles/irs-confirms-illegal-immigrant-tax-refund-ruling-sparking-gop-outcry-1425341738" target="_blank">[1] </a>an “amnesty bonus.” Senator ...

Ernest Istook on Obama’s new hotline for illegal immigrants

On his latest podcast episode, Tea Party Patriots board member and former conservative Rep. Ernest Istook offers his insights on news reports that the Obama Administration has set up a hotline for illegal immigrants who believe their rights under Obama’s amnesty program are being violated. Earlier this week, the Washington Times reported [1]: In a memo announcing the customer complaint line, U.S. Customs and Border Protection asked illegal immigrants to “please tell us about your experience” if they believe they were treated “contrary to the new DHS enforcement priorities.” The department alerted “stakeholders” last week of three ...

Our message to Hill Republicans: Double down on DHS!

Last week, the Senate voted to begin debate on a bill to fund the Department of Homeland Security before its funding runs out at the end of this month. And three times, Senate Democrats filibustered the bill because they object to language that would strip funding from President Obama’s executive amnesty [1]. Where are the Democrats’ priorities? Obviously, they’re not with funding the Department of Homeland Security. Our Republican leaders, to their credit, have stood firm on this bill. Senator Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is bringing up the version that passed the House. We want him to keep standing his ground, and send a very loud and ...

Jenny Beth Martin in The Daily Caller: Cancel next week’s recess!

Tea Party Patriots’ Jenny Beth Martin has a new op-ed up now at The Daily Caller, throwing down the gauntlet for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Her message, put simply, is this: cancel next week’s recess until the Senate passes the DHS funding bill. Writes Martin: Democrats – including seven who lamely said they opposed executive amnesty – filibustered a House-passed bill (HR 240) that would defund President Obama’s lawless actions. No chance, says new Minority Leader Harry Reid; fund Obama’s amnesty, or nothing. It’s important to note that by refusing to allow an up-or-down vote, Democrats are irretrievably culpable for any ...

It’s Time for serious action on illegal immigration

An explosive new report at Breitbart News [1] reveals how illegal immigrants in California may be getting a free pass on identity theft, thanks to the state’s new investigative policy at the DMV. The regulation orders DMV workers to overlook identity problems by applicants who want a driver’s license. In other words, should an illegal immigrant submit paperwork with fraudulent information, employees are supposed to look the other way. The policy is shocking in and of itself, given that identity theft is usually treated as a felony. But it’s not so shocking when looked at through the prism of illegal immigration and the left’s push to ignore ...

Bullies: How the Left’s Culture of Fear and Intimidation Silences Americans – Ben Shapiro

Bullies: How the Left’s Culture of Fear and Intimidation Silences Americans – Ben Shapiro From the editor-at-large of Breitbart.com comes a galvanizing and alarming look at the strategy and tactics of leftist thuggery. While President Obama and the left like to pretend that they oppose bullying with all their hearts and souls, the truth is far darker: the left is the greatest purveyor of bullying in modern American history. Bullying has morphed into the left’s go-to tactic, as they attempt to quash their opponents through fear, threat of force, violence, and rhetorical intimidation on every major issue facing America today. Ben Shapiro ...

Tax benefits for illegal immigrants

Over the last few days, a small handful of solid conservative lawmakers have stood up against President Obama’s unconstitutional overreach on immigration. Senators Mike Lee (UT), Ted Cruz (TX), and Jeff Sessions (AL), have all proven that with enough courage, it is possible to stand up for conservative principles even if doing so is exceedingly unpopular. Now, we have even more reason to thank the Senators, and encourage them to keep fighting the president’s executive amnesty. Under the new rule, millions of illegal immigrants will be eligible to collect billions in tax credits. Illegal immigrants have already been collecting tax credits for ...

Jenny Beth Martin Statement on Omnibus Bill

"Once again, Speaker Boehner and the House GOP leadership have found a way to needlessly squander political capital, after being handed a historic majority. Rather than negotiate and govern from a position of strength – and defend the Constitution against a lawless autocrat – the Speaker has punted on first down. It’s shameful, it’s senseless, and it will be remembered." We would like to thank the 67 GOP members of the House who kept their promise to the American people and voted against the Bill.  They are listed below.
