Common sense immigration reform

By now it should be clear to everyone that the current immigration system is broken and beyond repair. Illegal immigrants flock across the border with seeming impunity. Businesses depend on the labor of these immigrants, even as many US citizens leave the work force or are forced to work part-time jobs. Even legal immigrants like the Tsarnaev brothers can travel between the United States and terrorist training camps abroad without the knowledge of federal authorities. Perhaps worst of all, at President Obama’s implicit invitation, many unaccompanied immigrant children have made a dangerous journey the southern border to throw themselves on the mercy of the American welfare state. Immigration reform will require a common sense approach and a bipartisan compromise

Democrats and Republicans disagree on the solutions to these and many other problems faced by Americans. What’s more, the current balance of power in Washington in which Republicans control the House of Representatives and Democrats control the Senate and White House guarantees that neither party can force its own solution on the other. Many conservatives hold out hope for a Republican Senate majority after this year’s elections, but, even with the most optimistic projections, the GOP will not hold a majority large enough to override President Obama’s almost certain veto of a partisan immigration bill. The only viable solution to the immigration problem requires compromise.

AP refuses to report man arrested for murder an illegal alien released by Obama administration

n-PEDROKIDNAPPER-largeOn Monday, the Associated Press reported that 43-year-old Pedro Alberto Monterroso-Navas was arrested in the death of 24-year-old Heidi Monroy.

The AP identified the man as a “Honduran living in Metairie,” but failed to report the man is an illegal immigrant released by U.S. authorities with a Notice to Appear in June.  That was left to Breitbart.com’s Brandon Darby, who confirmed the man “was part of the Obama Administration’s catch and release policy for family groups from Central America.”

Illegal immigrant Jose Antonio Vargas detained by Border Patrol, released

Earlier Tuesday, Jose Antonio Vargas, a journalist who also happens to be in the country illegally, was detained by Border Patrol agents at McAllen-Miller International Airport.  He was held for about eight hours before being released on his own recognizance.  According to the Washington Post, he was detained after “trying to leave a Texas border town without a valid U.S. visa.”

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer promises to fight ‘imperial POTUS’ on illegal immigration

Jan BrewerOn Monday, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer issued a tweet promising to fight an “imperial” Obama over his refusal to enforce immigration laws and provide a secure border.

The tweet came on the same day the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that Arizona’s policy of denying drivers licenses to illegal immigrants who received deportation deferrals, such as those covered under Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), violated the immigrants’ equal protection rights.   Brewer responded:

Religion and politics…one in His name and one of winning an election

The hate mongers are out in force…full force…as they try to make the 2014 mid-terms a rallying cry around the social issues…around religious issues…and know that if they succeed all will be lost again.

The most important goal for the November mid-term election is to retake the Senate and increase our numbers in the House… NOTHING…I repeat NOTHING…is more important than that…NO local race…NO state race…NO social issue…NOTHING… because if we don’t retake the Senate it’s over…period.

And to that end to win we need numbers…BIG numbers. And to get those numbers we need to pull in any and all who want to see our country return to the rule of law known as the Constitution, and herein enters the oh-so dirty word that the ubber religious far right fear the most…inclusion.

Report: Feds in riot gear to ensure illegal immigrants get to Murrieta housing facility

murrieta1I never thought I’d see the day when federal agents in riot gear would stand with illegal immigrants against U.S. citizens, but that’s exactly what’s about to take place according to a report at Breitbart.com.

Protesters are still in Murrieta, but, Breitbart Texas said, federal agents with riot gear are set to arrive on Monday to ensure that another busload makes it to the housing facility there.

“Secure this border Mr. President”

“Allowing them to remain here will only encourage the next group of individuals to undertake this very, very dangerous and life-threatening journey…and those who come must be sent back to demonstrate in no uncertain terms that risking your lives on the top of those trains and the ways that they are coming here, it’s not worth it.”
- Texas Governor Rick Perry’s words before an HHS committee looking into the crisis at our southern border

And with those words kudos must go out to Governor Perry…a man of courage who stood strong and said what needed to be said as he echoed the words of what many of us believe…ship them all back including the children…period.

Saying that entering our country ILLEGALLY is both a humanitarian and a national security crisis, Perry’s recent testimony before the above said HHS committee held NOTHING back as he made it clear that we need to “Secure this border now.” Claiming the unending stream of unaccompanied children ILLEGALLY entering our country is a direct result of Obama’s failure to secure this border, Perry then went on to say…and rightfully so…that Obama’s recent changes to our immigration policy sent a message to any and all that if they send their children here they would be allowed to stay.

The ‘Constitution-Free’ zone is anything but constitutional

“When you go into business in this country today you do NOT give up your moral conscious.”
- Part of the Supreme Court ruling in favor of Hobby Lobby

 

Ending the biggest assault by any administration on religious freedom, ‘We the People’ won two battles yesterday as the Supreme Court ruled in favor of both Hobby Lobby and that caretakers do NOT have to join or pay unions so they can take care of loved ones at home.

Two battles won but there are so many more to go before our beloved America is set right again, and one battle that looms large as it affects our welfare system, our healthcare system, and our economy is our unsealed southern border situation… especially in Texas. Continue reading

The IRS scandal is tied directly to terrorist funding


irs isis flag“Above all, Iraqi leaders must rise above their differences and come together around a political plan for Iraq’s future…Now, it’s not the place for the United States to choose Iraq’s leaders.”

- Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s words as he stabs the Iraqi people in the back

As the flag of the ISIS terrorists fly over one of Iraq’s main oil fields…as the ISIS terrorists have taken control of one of Saddam’s old chemical and biological weapons facilities (proof by the way that George W.Bush was right)…Barack HUSSEIN Obama in yet another ‘smile-for-the-cameras’ photo-op news conference, basically said to Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki that the insurgent situation currently ongoing in Iraq is his problem alone to solve.
