On amnesty, Congress must follow through

On Monday, Senator Jeff Sessions of Alabama appeared on Newsmax TV to talk immigration policy in a Republican-controlled Senate. In short: President Obama’s plan for executive amnesty can be stopped if Republicans are able to gain back control of the Senate on Election Day. “It’s really easy,” said Sessions. “We do it all the time. We simply put language in a bill that says the executive branch can’t spend any money on this or that project.” In other words: Congress should be able to put a stop to the president’s radical immigration agenda, by simply exercising the power of the purse. This strategy, however, depends entirely on ...

New facts on illegal immigrants in America

A leaked Department of Homeland Security report reveals some startling facts [1] about illegal immigrants in the U.S., showing just how harmful lax immigration law enforcement is to the country. According to the report, nearly 900,000 illegals with deportation orders are still residing in the U.S. Of those, about 167,000 are convicted criminals. What’s more, according to officials at U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the agency is either supposed to release or take a pass on illegal immigrants who have committed “minor” crimes or have family members in America. As a result [2] “a fraction of deportable aliens that ICE ...

Americans don’t trust Democrats on immigration

A new Gallup poll [1] shows voters trust Republicans more than Democrats when it comes to the immigration issue. The GOP, in fact, has a five-point lead over President Obama’s party, 47 to 42 percent. That’s a swing from last April, when 49 percent of Americans trusted Democrats more, compared to 42 percent that trusted Republicans. The same poll showed 65 percent of voters view immigration as a top priority, which isn’t surprising considering how the border crisis has dominated the news in recent months. What’s more interesting, however, is how voters have responded to President Obama’s and the Democratic Party’s solution: amnesty. ...

TPP to release eye-opening documentary on immigration at the border

This Thursday, October 16, Tea Party Patriots will release a new documentary, “Border States of America.” Narrated by actor Nick Searcy, the documentary will take viewers for a ride along the U.S-Mexico border and expose the many consequences of rampant illegal immigration. The documentary will also feature interviews with Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), and Reps. Steve King (R-IA) and Louie Gohmert (R-TX), as well as dozens of law enforcement officials. The point the documentary drives home is this: illegal immigration extends beyond the thousands of minors from Central America, and its consequences are far-reaching and affect every American. As ...

Americans disapprove of how Obama is handling immigration

In a new Economist/YouGov survey conducted October 4-6, Americans disapprove of President Obama’s handling of immigration more than anything else. It seems the constant threats of executive action and daily politicization of the issue aren’t helping the administration after all. According to the poll 53 percent of Americans disapprove of the way the president has handled immigration.  His handling of the economy comes in second place with a 51 percent disapproval rating, and foreign policy and health care are tied for third place with 49 percent disapproval. After promising executive action on amnesty for illegal immigrants, the president ...

The terrorist threat at the border

Earlier this week, Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA) appeared on Fox News and reported that Border Patrol agents caught 10 ISIS fighters attempting to illegally cross the southern border into the United States. This news is alarming and serious, and underscores the threat the lack of border security poses to the American people. It was only a matter of time before our enemies overseas caught on to what illegal immigrants figured out long ago: the United States government doesn’t protect or secure its border, and what border patrol agents we do have are stretched beyond comprehension. If tens of thousands of immigrants are able to sneak across the border, ...

Obama’s version of the “American Dream”

On Thursday evening, President Obama got fired up addressing a crowd [1] in Washington, D.C. about immigration reform. He even went so far as to say “no force on earth can stop us.” President Obama may be in for a rude awakening. Before a crowd of immigration activists, President Obama implored them to turn out to vote in November, and praised Cesar Chavez as a model for American-style persistence. “That’s the promise of American then and that’s the promise of America now,” the president added. “People who love this country can change it. America isn’t Congress. America isn’t Washington.” While we might check our Chavez ...

DHS makes a major admission on immigration

The Department of Homeland Security has finally acknowledged[1] – albeit privately – what we’ve known for a long time: people apprehended while entering the United States illegally are not reporting back to court. According to DHS officials, about 70 percent of those caught illegally crossing the border do not appear before immigration authorities as ordered. Instead, they disappear into the U.S. interior and become another statistic: one of millions of illegal immigrants residing in America. That DHS is finally acknowledging this statistic offers a glimmer of hope that maybe some in Washington realize the gravity of the situation on the ...

CDC’s Blind Eye to the Border Crisis

Take a quick glance at recent headlines, and you’ll realize the latest YouTube sensation isn’t the only thing that’s going viral among children today. With the Enterovirus (EV) D68 spreading like wildfire in 21 states and outbreaks of tuberculosis popping up around the country, there is serious concern of how to control these invisible invaders, whose outbreaks have puzzled some health officials. Along with adhering to a list of dos and don’ts provided by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and county health departments, some schools – particularly one in California that has seen a rash of TB cases over the last several months – are ...
