Party of the (Would-Be) Working American?

The 2014 election season has shown that a stance of putting our fellow countrymen first by reducing legal immigration toward traditional levels is a welcome breath of fresh air to the voters. But the future is wide open for either party to take the high moral ground and win the allegiance of hurting Americans who would love to have full-time work.

It's Job Opportunity, Stupid

The 2014 congressional election campaigns can teach politicians something about the immigration issue: It's not enough merely to oppose "amnesty" or executive end-runs. And it's abject recklessness to promise special interests vastly more of this or that visa or pander to ethnic voting blocs about increasing legal immigration.

Even Bush's open-borders advisor Karl Rove has flip-flopped on his dogmatic pro-amnesty pipe dream for GOP political sustainability, at least as a campaign tactic, for now. His American Crossroads is using amnesty as a hammer against liberal candidates who favor it.

Presumptive Duplicity with Obamacare

Have you heard about President Obama's illegal immigration scandal?

Not the one where Central Americans are surging over the border with the administration's tacit approval. The scandal I'm referring to is the wholesale enrollment of illegal aliens in Obamacare. You may recall the president averring before a joint meeting of Congress in 2009 that this would never happen.

H1-B Visa Leaves Americans on the Sidelines

Two notable economists have highlighted what's making it tougher on middle-aged Americans to land jobs. Irwin Stelzer, writing for the Weekly Standard, and Robert Samuelson, columnist for the Washington Post, show how, despite high unemployment levels for Americans in their 40s, 50s, and 60s, corporate elites would rather import cheap foreign labor to systematically displace these available American workers, who bring tremendous experience, insight, and wisdom to the table.

Unlike Their Leaders, Christian Laity Are Wise as Serpents, Yet Innocent as Doves on Immigration

If you've suspected that the elites heading Big Religion, who push so hard for mass amnesty, are out of touch with their parishioners, you're absolutely right. The leadership of many evangelical denominations (plus the Catholic Church) lacks a flock when it comes to immigration issues. More importantly, the leaders seem farther removed from sound scriptural teachings.

The immigration-reduction group NumbersUSA recently released an opinion poll of evangelical Christians. The survey, conducted by Pulse Opinion Research of 1,000 evangelicals who are likely voters, was unveiled at the National Religious Broadcasters convention in Nashville.

Immigration Reform Principles Worth Considering

House Republican leaders seem hell-bent on forcing through amnesty for illegal aliens. They have been huddling with open-borders apologists — big-government liberal ethnic advocates masquerading as conservatives — to come up with "principles" that will supposedly inform their immigration legislative agenda. These principles are expected to be unveiled at the House Republican retreat later this week and begin the marketing campaign to sell their rank and file on going along with mass amnesty.

Illegal Alien Heads Obamacare Navigator Program in NYC

Now that the Obamacare health insurance "exchanges" are live, experiencing technical difficulties, and facing growing scrutiny for risking Americans' privacy, Americans concerned about just where their hard-earned tax dollars are going might want to know more about Obamacare "navigators." Hint: They don't carry maps and compasses, and they aren't carefully vetted government agents, though their groups are collecting millions in taxpayer money. Some of the navigators are illegal aliens themselves.
