Fifth Circuit upholds injunction against Obama’s Amnesty
Greg Abbott sued to stop Barack Obama’s administrative amnesty for millions of illegal aliens, back when he was Attorney General.

Leading California anti-amnesty group defends One Child Policy
Californians for Population Stabilization (CAPS) likes to portray itself as a conservative group. They run ads against Amnesty, and went hard after Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) 56%. Like FAIR and NumbersUSA, they want to dupe the American right into thinking they are an ally. But they aren’t. They have more in common with Chinese Communist hardliners than American conservatives.
Marco Rubio on “Amnesty”: Let’s Take Care of Everything Else First
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 94% has four problems and two opportunities on immigration, and in an interview with Sean Hannity last night, he did his best to stake out a sensible middle ground that will make nobody entirely happy (except maybe people like me), but makes the best of the situation he’s already in. As to Rubio’s four problems, the first and | Read More »
Next Judicial Throwdown for Obama’s Executive Amnesty comes in July
Back when President Obama announced his executive order granting amnesty to potentially millions of illegal aliens, there was a lot of speculation on just how well such an action would hold up in court. Thus far, for the administration, the results have been nothing but rejection. The latest in the series of judicial setbacks for the President came last week when a three judge panel | Read More »
Scott Walker Flip Flops on Immigration Stance?
Is Governor Walker for amnesty, securing the border, a pathway to citizenship, or is he against it? The answer is clearly yes. Confused? So am I. It was only a few weeks ago that the Presidential Candidate in waiting was on Fox News Sunday emphatically stating his new firm position on immigration and border security. “My view has changed. I’m flat out saying it, candidates | Read More »
Texas Files Early Discovery Motion Against Obama
The Texas Attorney General is attuned to the news cycle as the rest of us. This week came word that the Obama Administration had actually begun implementing his executive amnesty plan well before he claimed to. In fact, his administration claimed that the amnesty plan would not be implemented until mid-February. A few days before the start of implementation, a federal judge in Texas issued | Read More »
The Irony of Fred Malek’s American Action Network Attacks
As I mentioned this morning former McCain National Finance Co-Chairman Fred Malek’s group, American Action Network, is running ads attacking conservative congressmen for not funding Obama’s executive amnesty. Everyone knows the attacks are coordinated on behalf of Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) N/A%. They are not even trying to hide it. The head of the group is the former head of the National | Read More »
Fred Malek and John Boehner Declare War on Conservative Congressmen
The American Action Network claims to be a “conservative” group. It was started by prominent Republican, Fred Malek, who maintains close ties to the Establishment and was Finance Co-Chairman of Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) 51%‘s 2008 Presidential campaign. It is run by Mike Shields, formerly of the National Republican Congressional Committee. Prior to Shields, Brian Walsh of the NRCC ran it. It | Read More »
Despite Court Ruling, Obama still Pushing ahead with Amnesty
If you need any more evidence that President Obama only respects the law when it agrees with them, look no further than how he is handling Judge Andrew Hannen’s decision to block the President’s amnesty order. The Washington Times reports that the Department of Homeland Security is still “rushing” ahead with contracts with firms to process illegal aliens. From the paper: A government watchdog says | Read More »
Illegals could Vote through a Loophole in Obama’s Amnesty
Earlier today, you heard about how illegal aliens will be eligible for the EITC once they their Social Security cards from my RedState colleague streiff, but the problems don’t stop there. Because they will be getting Social Security numbers and driver’s licenses under the Obama amnesty, there’s a good chance some will end up illegally voting. The Washington Times has the story: President Obama’s temporary deportation amnesty | Read More »
Illegal aliens to receive retroactive EITC refunds
This is wonderful. Via The Washington Times.The shot: IRS Commissioner John Koskinen told Congress on Wednesday that even illegal immigrants who didn’t pay taxes will be able to claim back-refunds once they get Social Security numbers under President Obama’s temporary deportation amnesty. The revelation — which contradicts what he told Congress last week — comes as lawmakers also raised concerns Mr. Obama’s amnesty could open | Read More »
Obama’s Tiresome DHS Washington Monument Defense
In a transparently absurd attempt to appear tough, it looks increasingly like the GOP controlled Congress may actually allow DHS to “shut down” if Obama vetoes the DHS funding bill over the language overturning his amnesty executive order. I put “shut down” in scare quotes because 87% of DHS employees are considered essential employees and thus would continue working in the event of a “shut | Read More »
Just in Case You Did not Know, You Were Lied to About Executive Amnesty
So back at the end of 2014, a lot of people pooh poohed the idea that the fight over executive amnesty would have to happen then or not at all. Many so-called “reasonable Republicans” insisted that this was the wrong time to hold the GOP’s feet to the fire. “Wait until next year,” they said. “Wait until the GOP actually has control of both chambers. | Read More »
Trey Gowdy (R-SC) Says His Preferred Method of Stopping Obama is to Let John McCain Do It
Now this is just pathetic. Some of you turned Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) 78% into the hero of the day because of his Benghazi investigation. He could do no wrong. What happens when you build a cult of personalty around any politician is then they can go BOHICA on you. Bend over America. Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) 78% is | Read More »
On the budget, John Boehner must learn from Brian Mulroney
It appears likely that John Boehner will cave on the budget, funding the President’s executive orders on illegal immigration through March, and funding the whole rest of the government (including Obamacare) at our current unsustainable deficits through September, 9 months into the new Republican Congress. He’ll say he had no choice, but we know better.
