WH on DHS favoritism: nothing to see here!

Suppose a top official at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) showed special treatment toward requests from Democratic officials. And suppose that special treatment involved help with tricky immigration matters for the well-connected friends of these Democratic officials. Suppose all this happened and it violated a number of ethics rules. You’d expect the White House to come out against the practice pretty hard, right? Wrong. During a White House press briefing on Wednesday, Press Secretary Josh Earnest called the offending DHS official – Alejandro Mayorkas – a “decorated public servant.” Hmmm Earnest continued [1]: “Mr. ...

Tens of thousands of convicted illegals were released onto the streets last year

The Department of Homeland Security (emphasis on the worlds “homeland” and “security”) is having a hard time living up to its name. According to new documents obtained by Judicial Watch, [1] DHS released roughly 166,000 criminal illegal immigrants into the U.S. as of April 2014. These criminals include, but are not limited to, rapists, murders and kidnappers. And releasing them is supposed to secure our homeland how, exactly? This information, it should be noted, comes after a lengthy legal back-and-forth. In July 2014, Judicial Watch was forced to file a lawsuit against DHS, after the agency repeatedly failed to respond to Freedom of ...

Tea & Gruber in Georgetown, Texas!

On Thursday (February 19),  more than 50 patriots attended  Central Texas 9-12 Project and the WILCO Tea Party had their first meeting of 2015 at the Georgetown library. They planned the meeting using the best practices taught by Tea Party activist Conrad Quagliaroli in his presentation: “12 Tips and 30 Steps to Get the Most out of Your Meeting.” In addition, their guest speaker was Joyce Mucci of the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), who reinforced the dangers of President Obama’s executive amnesty orders. The 15 members who attended Tea Party Patriots’ “Texas, Our Texas” advanced training conference in Houston ...

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 ...

Senate Dems would rather uphold amnesty than fund DHS – CALL NOW!

On Tuesday, Senate Democrats blocked legislation [1] that would have funded the Department of Homeland Security, but reversed President Obama’s executive action on immigration. That’s right: even though DHS funding is set to run out at the end of February, Democrats in the hallowed halls of the Senate think it’s a better idea to preserve amnesty, then fund a government agency. We need to make our voice heard loud and clear. Last November, voters rejected the Obama agenda, including amnesty. Now, it’s time to call BOTH your senators and remind them what last year’s election was all about. Call at 202-224-3121 and tell them to vote to ...

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 ...

Federal judge: executive amnesty unconstitutional

A federal judge has spoken, and declared President Obama’s executive amnesty unconstitutional. On Tuesday, in the case United States v. Juarez-Escobar, a federal district court in Pennsylvania[1] ruled that executive amnesty violates the Constitution’s separation of powers. The case in question centered on a Honduran national who entered the United States illegally after already being deported once. Jaurez-Escobar’s attorney argued in court that, among other things, Hondurans like his client were entitled to deferred deportation because of unrest in his country- especially in light of President Obama’s recent executive orders. The ...

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 ...

Tell your rep to vote NO on the omnibus!

Earlier today, the House narrowly passed a rule advancing the omnibus spending bill – which allows funding for President Obama’s executive amnesty –to a floor debate and eventual vote. Very narrowly; it passed with a 214-212 vote at the last minute. Unfortunately, only a handful of conservatives voted against the measure, and that’s not good enough. 53 House Republicans voted to advance the bill allowing funding for Obama’s executive amnesty. If this horrible spending bill is going to fail – and it should – we need more conservatives to stand up and do the right thing. We’re calling all our supporters to, in the next hour, call ...

Jenny Beth Martin Statement on 1,600 Page Funding/Amnesty Bill

"The Republicans have been given the ball. It’s up to them to show that they deserve it.”   - Jenny Beth Martin, 11/5/14, The Daily Caller   I suppose we shouldn’t be surprised that it’s taken the Republicans all of 35 days to drop that ball in spectacularly disappointing fashion. America rises this morning to find that another massive,1600-page bill dropped under the cover of darkness. A bill created behind closed doors, of course, that congressmen won’t even have time to read. Make no mistake, this bill DOES fund Obama's executive amnesty, and so much more. We’ve not seen a "Lame Duck Congress” these last several days. ...
