ICE Chieft Admits Freeing Illegal Aliens With Criminal Records

The Obama administration said Thursday it  had rearrested and brought back four of the most dangerous immigrants it  released from detention last month in the run-up to the budget  sequestration.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director John  Morton testified to Congress that his agency  released 10 “level one” offenders, and has gone out and apprehended four of  them. He said the other six are nonviolent.

Mr. Morton also acknowledged that overall,  2,228 immigrants were released — far more than the several hundred the agency  had initially acknowledged. Of those, 629 had criminal records, though Mr.  Morton said they were low-level offenders.

The releases have drawn a stern rebuke from Republicans, who said it showed  mismanaged priorities. They also said ICE’s concession that it released far more  immigrants than it first acknowledged dents the agency’s credibility.

NY Times Allows No Moderation on Immigration

A report by the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) traces the movement of New York Times editorials on immigration from moderate liberalism to radical extremism. The latter often consists of name calling against immigration restrictionists rather than reasoned analysis. The author of the report is Jerry Krammer, who won a Pulitzer prize for reporting in 2006. Krammer says that the instigator of the Times’ extremism is its publisher Arthur Sulzberger.

Obama Calls Flake to Plot Amnesty

President Obama called Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) on Monday to plot amnesty legislation. Flake is a member of the “Gang of Eight,” a group of four Republican and four Democrat senators who suport amnesty. Republicans who want cheap labor and Democrats who want cheap votes have a bipartisan interest in rewarding illegal aliens with legal status.

Survey: Business Execs Want More Immigrant Workers

The overwhelming majority of U.S. businesses favor immigration reform that would make it easier for people with science and other technical expertise come to the U.S., according to a new survey. But that consensus appears to break down when it comes to immigrants without those skills or those who have entered the country illegally.

The Duke University/CFO Global Business Outlook survey found that 88 percent of chief financial officers at more than 500 U.S. companies favor switching from the current lottery system of immigration to one based on merit. For corporate executives, such merit appears to mean having the right set of professional skills.

Rep. Lou Barletta: Secure the Borders First

We have been presented with a false choice in the Washington-based debate over illegal immigration. On one hand, we are offered the Obama plan, conveniently leaked to the media, which offers permanent residency after a shockingly long eight years on probation. On the other, we have the “gang of eight,” who say citizenship lies at the end of an amorphous path following a declaration of secure borders by a yet-to-be-named commission. Both of these are unacceptable and fail to address the causes of illegal immigration and the massive costs associated with legalizing millions of people who have already broken our laws.

Obama Labor Pick Has Radical Pro-Immigration History

He’s not an official nominee yet, but if President Obama does name Thomas  Perez for Labor Secretary, the Republicans  aren’t likely to sail through a confirmation.

Mr. Perez has stood by some of the  administration’s toughest policies that seem to favor unions at the expense of  businesses, The Hill reports. Prior to serving as assistant attorney general for  the Civil  Rights Division within the Justice  Department, Mr. Perez worked as the  secretary of Maryland’s Department of Labor,  Licensing and Regulation — where he fought businesses who opposed higher minimum  wage mandates. He also supported a “living wage” regulation, and fought hard  against banks and entities involved in foreclosure schemes.

Left Radicals Try to Divide Conservatives on Amnesty

The radical National Immigration Forum (NIF), a pro-amnesty group funded by globalist billionaire George Soros, is trying to divide conservatives on immigration policy. Recently it distributed a document falsely linking conservative restrictionists to advocacy of abortion and euthanasia. The goal is to drive a wedge between them and pro-life conservatives.

Release of Illegal Aliens Spurs Backlash

The decision of the Obama Administration to release illegal aliens held in detention has prompted a strong backlash among members of Congress.  A number of them have demanded explanations for this action from Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano. So far, Napolitano has not replied. A letter from 37 Republican House members to the secretary stated, “It is frankly irresponsible that your agency chose releasing detained immigrants as its first effort to control spending.”

California Taxpayers Forced to Give Financial Aid to Illegal Alien Students

More than 20,000 college-bound students are seeking state financial aid for the first time under California’s new Dream Act laws that allow them to get the help despite their immigration status.

While far from a complete picture, that number is the best indicator yet of how many students hope to benefit from a pair of laws that could radically change the college experience for a generation of students whose parents brought them to the U.S. illegally when they were young — the same group that has taken center stage in the national immigration reform debate.

“For many of them, it’s a game-changer,” said Meng So, who coordinates UC Berkeley’s months-old Undocumented Student Program.

As college-bound high school graduates await word of their state financial aid — Cal Grants — other kinds of help have begun to flow for students already enrolled in public colleges and universities.
