Here Comes the Judge

The federal judge hearing the ICE agents' case against President Obama's de facto amnesty through executive fiat is proceeding at the very same time the U.S. Senate is considering a massive amnesty bill that includes the DREAM amnesty for those who claim to have come to the country as young children.It's also interesting that so far the judge has ruled in the agents' favor — and against the administration. A final ruling is expected soon.

An Echo, Not a Choice?

With the GOP establishment rushing off to embrace amnesty, which Republican leaders fancy will win them party allegiance from Latino voters, they stand in danger of returning their party to a mere echo of the Democratic Party. The big question becomes whether the GOP will go the whole distance on other issues.

Heritage: Amnesty Would Abuse Rule of Law

The Heritage Foundation think tank has issued a thoughtful paper that adds much-needed perspective for the cowering Republicans and giddy Democrats rush to enact a massive immigration package. "Encouraging Lawful Immigration and Discouraging Unlawful Immigration" comes from Heritage's legal shop, so it gives due consideration to the effects of "comprehensive immigration reform" on what was formed to be a sovereign, self-governing, republican nation, a nation of laws and not of men.

Contrived Prayers for Amnesty

"But when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by men", Jesus taught in the Sermon on the Mount. "I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full."Yet, the modern-day Pharisees belonging to the so-called Evangelical Immigration Table (EIT) have planned a public "day of prayer and action" as a political contrivance. In reality, it's merely a day of political activism in religious camouflage.

Natural Conservatives? Really?

Ever heard the claim that Latinos are "natural conservatives"? The person repeating the conventional wisdom of the Beltway apparently hasn't examined the evidence.That's why, for Republicans, to buy that canard spells disaster. The most recent evidence comes from a new Latino Decisions poll. It shows two-thirds of Latinos support "comprehensive immigration reform" that includes special immigration privileges for foreign-born gays and lesbians.

Bishops Throwing Another $800K Behind Amnesty Fight

Apparently, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops is rolling in dough. It's giving $800,000 more to propaganda efforts "aimed at mobilizing regular Catholics to push for the bishops' immigration platforms", i.e., mass legalization and open borders.That comes on top of the $3.5 million the group has already spent to promote mass amnesty. For some wacky reason, this political money gets labeled "antipoverty" activity. That's really bizarre. And it flies in the face of the facts.
