US -Mexico Border Crisis
It is time that when the "compassion card" is brought out- the issue of compassion must first take into account the safety and well-being of America and Americans. There is nothing compassionate about committing suicide!

On June 27, 2015 CAPS (Californians for Population Stabilization) posted my article, “Heroin Epidemic: The Real Metric for Determining Border Security.”
To provide you with a bit of additional material, during my remarks at the panel discussion, I referenced my June 22, 2007 Op-Ed for the Washington Times that focused on my concerns about the previous attempt to enact Comprehensive Immigration Reform. Senator Jeff Sessions quoted from my commentary, on three separate dates, from the floor of the U.S. during the contentious floor debates.
IIn my piece I recommended that Comprehensive Immigration Reform be given a more honest and descriptive title, I suggested that it be renamed the “Terrorist Assistance and Facilitation Act!”
I recommend you review Senator Session's statement on June 27, 2007 from the floor of the U.S. Senate on the Immigration Bill in which the Senator made reference to my suggested new name to that disastrous legislation in my Washington Times Op-Ed. His impassioned pleas to his colleagues averted a catastrophe and that legislation was defeated. However, not unlike Freddy Krueger, Comprehensive Immigration Reform has been brought back to life through the unilateral actions of President Obama and his proposed executive actions. Furthermore, there are politicians from both parties willing to give this legislative betrayal of America and Americans CPR!
My Op-Ed was entitled:
The interview ran about 4 minutes and is worth watching.
“We're not holding anything, we'll let the Hun do that. We are advancing constantly, and we're not interested in holding onto anything except the enemy.”
Pushing back against Comprehensive Immigration Reform is the same as holding position. The time has come for us to advance by demanding that our borders be made truly secure and our immigration laws be effectively administered and enforced.
The findings and recommendations of the 9/11 Commission must be the starting point for any discussion about immigration legislation. That commission determined that a lack of border security, including the visa process. and fraud in the immigration benefits program, enabled terrorists to enter and embed themselves in the United States, as they went about their deadly preparations.
All I ask is that you make it clear to our politicians that we are not as dumb as they hope we are!
This is neither a Conservative issue, nor is it a Liberal issue- simply stated, this is most certainly an AMERICAN issue!
You are either part of the solution or you are a part of the problem!
Democracy is not a spectator sport!
Lead, follow or get out of the way!

The Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC) is giving President Obama some wiggle room on his executive action on immigration, saying it can wait even until after a potential December runoff that could decide control of the Senate.
After President Obama announced he would wait until after the November midterms to move forward with executive action to grant legal status to millions of illegal immigrants, the CHC initially said it still the White House to act by Thanksgiving. But a new resolution passed by the Democratic caucus is now giving him until late December to act.
White House chief of staff Denis McDonough reportedly told told the caucus in recent meetings that it was unlikely the president would choose to act by the end of November and wants to wait until after Louisiana’s competitive Senate race, which will probably go to an early December runoff. McDonough reportedly asked the Latino caucus to postpone its demand.
In Louisiana, if no candidate receives more than 50 percent of the vote in November, the leading two candidates will move to a runoff, and it seems unlikely that either incumbent Democrat Mary Landrieu or leading Republican Bill Cassidy will get a majority. Hispanic Democrats are keen on getting executive action on the books to legalize some undocumented immigrants, but Landrieu and other vulnerable red-state Democrats would likely be hurt by the president’s unilateral action. (The Louisiana senator voted in favor of allowing an amendment to a recent Senate spending bill that would have blocked President Obama’s ability to act unilaterally; the motion failed.)
In a resolution passed last Thursday, the CHC said it was “deeply disappointed” with the president’s decision to delay his executive action but still wants him to act “before the end of the holiday season.” The resolution also references President Obama’s original May 27 promise to act before the end of the summer, as well as his announcement earlier this month to delay the action until later after the midterms.
Gang of 8 Bill- What You Need to Know!
If you want to know what this bill (Gang of 8) is about please listen to this interview with Mike Cutler. Mike Cutler has testified dozens of times in Congress on immigration issues. He is a retired INS agent with over 30 years experience in all levels of the immigration system.
The interview is very illuminating and will change how you view this subject.
Ted Cruz Exposes Amnesty Bill: $5000 Penalty For Hiring Citizens Over Legalized Aliens
We can’t possibly expect our Senators to read a 1200 page bill before voting on it. Can we? Well Thank God Ted Cruz read it. Not only did Cruz read it but he schooled anyone who would listen from the Senate floor on Tuesday. Cruz found a loophole that actually penalizes an employer $5000 for hiring a citizen over a legalized alien. Seriously. You can’t make this stuff up. Senator Cruz was quoted as saying:
“I filed an amendment that would have corrected one of the most egregious aspects of the gang of eight bill as it intersects with Obamacare legislation, namely a penalty imposed on U.S. employers for hiring U.S. citizens and U.S. permanent residents. This bill says if an employer hires a citizen or a legal immigrant, the IRS can impose a $5,000 penalty on that employer. But if the employer instead hires someone with RPI status, that penalty will go away. That is utterly and completely indefensible.”
“Nobody in this body wants to see African-American unemployment go up. Nobody wants to see Hispanic unemployment go up, youth unemployment go up, union household unemployment go up, legal immigrant unemployment go up. Yet every one of those will happen if this Gang of Eight bill passes without fixing this problem. If that happens, all 100 members of the U.S. Senate will be accountable to our constituents for explaining why we voted to put a federal penalty on hiring U.S. citizens and hiring legal immigrants. I hope this body will choose to pass my amendment and fix this grave defect in the Gang of Eight legislation.”
Gang of 8 Bill Highlights Such as They Are
Immigration Bill in DC update:
Amnesty Bill worst than 2007 Bill.
844 pages of legislation, backgrounds checks in new bill are lower than current law, no triggers in bill. No requirements of defense in border security. Napolitano has 6 months to come up with a plan without having to do anything. Napolitano gets more power. No defined terms, all up to Sec of DHS.
E-verify is repealed under this bill and employs new system that is untested and untried and doesn’t need to be in place for 5 yrs. Day laborers no t even on new system. Entry /exit system must be bio-metric, this bill strips this measure after 17 yrs.
Biographical exit/entry system, papers basically. Passports etc. Fencing, requires an actual fence at border Mexico and Us border. Rubio says there is new funding to build fence but it has never happened and Administration has said it won’t happen. High tech fence that can be easily penetrated is their answer.
This is really amnesty! Citizenship line may be in back but these folks are pushed to the top of the jobs line. They have to pay a fine,. Legal immigrants don’t’ get any assistance that these amnesty folks will get. They will only pay $500 fine for being here illegal.
Earmarks, allow Congressman who own/like certain industries get new guest workers…people will be exploited for these new workers. Exempts American businesses from paying people the same amount as Americans so they can work for cheaper.
SSN fraud being committed which none of these people have to pay legal time for breaking law. Identity theft not prosecuted. These people are not prosecuted for any laws they have broken. US provides assistance to allow them to break the law.
WSJ wrote article on Obama trying to pass these things as being all political. Then they can use it against House members in 2014 to show they want children killed and don’t like Hispanics. Obama strategy let the bills go to House to be stopped and then he can run against the House in 2014, Truman got elected this way. Our game plan is to beat bill in Senate. Don’t let it get to the House.
Heritage has a report/study coming out on jobs and immigration.
33 million immigrants over 10 yrs. Businesses will pay for the cost of this stuff.
Special interests backing bill: Facebook,Google, Microsoft,unions, BigAG. Lesser skilled people workers who will be paid less.
PETA has purchased a large number of drones to watch elk herd in CO.
Large tea party groups that are national don't want in on this fightmedia is not covering opposition. Contact district offices to tell them NO to Amnesty!
Sessions, GOP allies ask for hearings on secret immigration bill
Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions and five other Republican senators are trying to stop the Senate’s Democratic leaders from rushing a huge business-backed amnesty and guest-worker bill through the Senate before it can be debated by the public.
On March 19, Sessions and the other senators sent a letter asking Democratic Sen. Patrick Leahy, the chairman of the Senate judiciary committee, to schedule hearings on the complex bill.
“We respectfully request that the public be given adequate time, consistent with past practice in handling complex comprehensive immigration legislation, to read and analyze the contents of the any such bill” before it is approved by the majority-Democratic panel, said the letter.
The letter was signed by six GOP committee members: Sessions, plus Sens. Chuck Grassley, Orrin Hatch, Mike Lee, John Cornyn and Ted Cruz. It was not signed by Sens. Lindsey Graham and Jeff Flake, two committee members who are helping to write the controversial measure.
Senators unveil immigration reform as Hispanic influence grows
By Richard Cowan and Rachelle Younglai
WASHINGTON | Mon Jan 28, 2013 10:37pm EST
(Reuters) - Reflecting the growing influence of Hispanics in American politics, a group of Republican and Democratic U.S. senators on Monday said they will move quickly with legislation giving 11 million illegal immigrants a chance to become citizens.
That new political reality, and a change in public opinion on immigration, makes this effort at comprehensive reform more likely to succeed than those of the past, they said, acknowledging that it still won't be easy.
"The Republican Party is losing support of our Hispanic citizens," said John McCain, a Republican from the border state of Arizona and one of the eight senators working on the initiative.
Another member of the bipartisan group, Democrat Charles Schumer, said the public's attitude has changed. "Four years ago they said 'fix the border.' Now they say they much prefer a comprehensive solution including a path to citizenship as well as fixing the border," the New York senator said.

Cuban perks under scrutiny in U.S. immigration reform
By David Adams and Tom Brown
MIAMI | Fri Feb 8, 2013 10:04am EST
(Reuters) - All Ana Soto had to do to gain entry to the United States at the Texas-Mexico border in 2008 was show her Cuban identity card and birth certificate.
Soto has since brought her husband from Cuba, reunited with her parents in Miami and got an accounting job - building a dream life thanks to one of the most generous U.S. immigration laws: the 1966 Cuban Adjustment Act.
"I had no future in Cuba. My life, and my entire family's life has changed for the better thanks to the Adjustment Act," said Soto, 24.
Those who follow in Soto's footsteps may not be so fortunate. As the U.S. Congress takes up immigration reform, the special status of Cuban emigres is being called into question by critics who say the CAA is a costly and anachronistic Cold War relic that should be abolished.
The issue has gained urgency after a relaxing of travel restrictions by both Cuba and the United States that has led to a dramatic increase in the number of Cubans traveling between the two countries. Soto herself has returned to Cuba a dozen times, on the last occasion to visit her dying grandmother.
