Conclusive Evidence More Immigration Would Harm Americans

April produced another lousy Bureau of Labor Statistics jobs report. Superficially—in other words, the way the White House wants Wall Street to perceive it, conditions are improving.

Congress Turns Deaf Ear, Presses Ahead with Amnesty Bills

On Good Friday, seven influential mainstream media outlets published passionate comprehensive immigration reform pleas thinly disguised as news stories.

Journalist Asks: ‘Why Don’t We Care More about Our People?’

House: Risk-Reward Calculation Dictates Amnesty Inaction

Bieber: How He Got Here and Why He Should Be Sent Home

Canadian-born, teen heart throb Justin Bieber’s criminal misbehavior may indirectly hurt Congress’ push for comprehensive immigration reform.

House Leaders, Chamber of Commerce Double-Team Unemployed Americans

Congress no sooner reconvened than the-all out push for comprehensive immigration reform picked up where it left off.

Our Irrational Immigration System

  The state of California tossed the conservative media another hunk of red meat last week when its Supreme Court granted an illegal alien a law license.

Since 2009, 11 Million Americans Out of Job Market

Real Unemployment 14.6 Percent The Bureau of Labor Statistics’ November employment report was its usual misleading statistical good news mish-mash that, when slapped together, came out as what the mainstream media called the most “encouraging” in months.

Honest Polling Shows Americans Reject Immigration Reform Amnesty

Since June when the Senate passed the Border Security, Economic Opportunity and Immigration Modernization bill, tens of thousands of stories and broadcasts have been devoted to comprehensive immigration reform.
