Some business and education mouthpieces, along with uncaring, unthinking officials (including President Obama and many on both sides of the aisle in Congress), keep calling for more foreigners to be imported to compete against our fellow Americans for scarce jobs and higher education slots.This unpatriotic drumbeat continues, despite the fact that some 1.8 million American engineers don't have a job or are working outside of engineering.

Libertarian for Open Borders

Sometimes you just have to let those who disagree with you on an issue like immigration argue themselves to extremes. That's what a recent piece in the Huffington Post does.This item by an open-borders libertarian tries to justify amnesty. He embraces amnesty.

Neither President Nixon's Justice Department during the Watergate era nor the Bill Clinton-Janet Reno abuses of DOJ's power (e.g., summary firing of all U.S. attorneys, the invasion at Waco, Bill Lann Lee's Civil Rights Division activism) quite compares with the lengths to which Attorney General Eric Holder, Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights Tom Perez, and President Obama have gone to pursue a political vendetta. Foremost to keep in mind regarding this misconduct: It's all about immigration politics.

The Los Angeles Times recently reported on program known as ROC-MD in Southern California that provides a form of health coverage designed for illegal aliens.The program was started by the Restaurant Opportunities Center of L.A. and St. John's Well Child and Family Center. Uninsured illegals are charged $25 a month and can seek medical services at one of the St. John's clinics.This program targets illegal aliens because they ostensibly don't qualify for coverage through Obamacare. However, the law already had some loopholes through which illegal aliens could tap taxpayer-funded health care.
