More Illegal Immigrants Fail to Report to Authorities
More illegal immigrants are entering the United States. The Homeland Security Department is privately acknowledging that about 70 percent of immigrant families caught illegally crossing the Mexican border have not reported back to immigration authorities. Instead, they’ve vanished into the interior of the United States. The disclosure to immigration advocates came during a confidential meeting at Homeland Security’s Washington headquarters for a federal working group on detention and enforcement policies.

Congressman Probing IRS Scandal: Whoever Next AG Is, ‘They Have to Be Better than Eric Holder Was’
Outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder’s legacy – or at least a big part of it – will be obstructing the investigation into the Internal Revenue Service targeting of conservative groups, said Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), who set a low bar for the next attorney general. “Whoever is going to be next, they have to be better than Eric Holder was,” Jordan told TheBlaze on the day Holder announced he was retiring from his controversial tenure as head of the Justice Department. Jordan is the chairman of the subcommittee for regulatory affairs for the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, in which he has probed the IRS targeting of tea party and conservative groups.

GOP to Obama: Don’t Replace Holder in Lame-Duck Congress

Survey: Employers Passing Obamacare Costs to Employees
New survey data show that companies are passing on to their employees additional costs they have incurred as a result of the Affordable Care Act, according to a management professor at the University of South Carolina’s Moore School of Business. And that means employees who get their health insurance through work are bearing the cost of subsidizing people newly covered under President Obama’s healthcare reform law, said Professor Patrick M. Wright.
Another reason why household income is at a generational low. Obamacare has got to go!
