DARN IT !!!! Obama to back off on immigration reform.
Adios amigo. WASHINGTON – Immigration reform has become the first of President Barack Obama’s major priorities dropped from the agenda of an election-year Congress facing voter disillusionment. Sounding the death knell was Obama himself. The president noted that lawmakers may lack the “appetite” to take on immigration while many of them are up for re-election and while another big legislative issue — climate change — | Read More »
Immigration reform, if not now, when?
From: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100429/ap_on_go_pr_wh/us_immigration_politics “The president noted that lawmakers may lack the “appetite” to take on immigration while many of them are up for re-election” Perhaps I am a little naive, BUT. I thought that every two years, there are the same number of lawmakers up for re-election. 1/3 of the senate and all of the house. This never changes, so when do they actually decide to | Read More »
Arizona And Immigration Equality
The new Arizona immigration law is certainly getting a lot of people excited. Many claim that it will lead to rampant racial profiling, wholesale arrests and deportation, and all manner of inhumane debauchery inflicted upon “undocumented visitors” in our Country. There is no doubt in my mind that this law was conceived and passed in an attempt to restore order in a state that is | Read More »

Corzine and the Illegal Immigrant Children
Recently in New Jersey, current (and hopefully soon, former) Governor John Corzine’s blue ribbon commission on immigration made several suggestions. Among them is a provision that dependents of illegal immigrants be charged in-state tuition fees for state colleges. Although this type of proposal is not unique to New Jersey, Corzine has given his support to this provision. Their reasoning is that the children of illegal, | Read More »

NO! to Comprehensive Immigration Reform [UPDATE]…
Hat tip to Michelle Malkin. Some folks can’t seem to understand why others of us won’t stand for a bill on immigration reform that address both “immigration status” and border security at the same time. The answer comes from Tucson, AZ.
