Data from last year show that nearly one-million illegal aliens with orders to leave the country still remain in the U.S. About twenty percent of them have at least one criminal conviction.

Some More Distortion from the Mass Media:
Heartbreaking was how President Obama described the Supreme Court decision that keeps his immigration executive orders blocked. It is indeed a heartbreaking outcome but politically it was the best possible outcome for undocumented immigrants and supporters of immigration reform. . . .
Those opposed to immigration reform and Trump supporters more specifically aren’t going to get amped up by the stalemate. If anything they see it as a win. However, the true silver lining of the decision is that it will mobilize the Latino community. The heartbreak can be harnessed and used to get Latinos to the polls to support the immigration reform friendly candidate—Clinton. – Opinion Why Supreme Court Decision Is Best Possible Outcome, Victoria Defrancesco Soto, NBC Nightly News 6/27/16
Fact Check: The Court’s four-to-four decision, at least for the time-being, does block Obama’s amnesty edicts—almost certainly for the rest of his term. The case will now proceed at a lower court level, and possibly appear again before the Supreme Court. What was heartbreaking is that there wasn’t another justice to stop the edicts with a majority vote, and thus make it a legal precedent. The late Justice Anton Scalia no doubt would have voted to defeat the edicts, but his untimely passing prevented that from happening.
What is most disturbing about Soto’s article is that it makes no reference at all to the key constitutional issue in the case, namely the fact that Obama’s actions were in blatant violation of the constitutional principle of separation of powers. It stipulates that Congress, the representative body of the people, is the law-making branch of government. The task of the president is to enforce those laws. A president who tries to make laws—as Obama did—is acting as a dictator.
But an action which undermines our liberties doesn’t seem to bother Soto. Her focus is what will “mobilize the Latino community.” The intention is clear—ignore the Constitution for the sake of promoting ethnic/racial politics and power. This formulation assumes that all or nearly all Latinos are mindless supemacists who care more about their group interests than about our Constitution and our freedoms. It’s hard to think of a more insulting racial stereotype. Many Latinos, just like citizens of other backgrounds, do care about our country’s rule of law and the benefits it provides everyone.
Also grating is Soto reference to amnesty for illegal aliens as “immigration reform.” This Orwellian phrase suggests that rewarding people who break our laws is some kind of beneficial step, which the word “reform” generally suggests. Rewarding lawlessness invites more lawlessness—and there is no benefit in that.

A federal judge on Wednesday ruled that Kansas, Alabama and Georgia can require their residents to show proof of U.S. citizenship before signing up to vote, delivering a win to states concerned about voter fraud by aliens. The Obama administration had sided with the liberal League of Women Voters which had filed the suit to halt the state citizenship checks.
The president of the League of Women Voters said they would appeal the decision.

Daniel Greenfield on Frontpagemag.com today explains why George Will is wrong in leaving the GOP and supporting amnesty and mass immigration. Greenfield writes:
“George Will has left the GOP in a huff while claiming that his departure is on account of his conservatism. But Will’s conservatism has a history of being tethered to very liberal policies. Especially when it comes to immigration.”
Greenfield writes that immigration policies today are a “rigged game” favoring the political ambitions of the Democrats and the left-wing.
He concludes: “Conservatives are tired of a political establishment that attempts to pass off liberal policies as conservative…. George Will did not leave the GOP because he is a conservative, but because it is becoming too conservative for him.”

Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA) is fast-tracking a bill in the Senate to crack down on cities with “sanctuary” policies which violate federal law by protecting illegal aliens from deportation. The legislation would deny them certain federal funds if they continue those policies.

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) stated that president candidate Donald Trump’s proposal for a temporary ban on Muslim immigration was improper and that “I would sue any president that exceeds his or her powers.” Ryan, however, never threatened to sue president Obama because of his edicts granting amnesty to illegal aliens–even though Ryan has stated that those edicts were unconstitutional.
Jon Freere of the center for immigration Studies asks, “Is Speaker Ryan being honest about his willingness to sue any president who exceeds his authority? Or was that line limited to actions that could be taken by a President Trump? Or, put another way, is Ryan only interested in suing over actions that might reduce immigration, but not over actions that reward illegal immigration?

A 4-4 tie vote by the U.S. Supreme Court announced Thursday blocks President Obama’s scheme to allow millions of illegal aliens to remain in the U.S. and be given work permits and other benefits. The one-sentence opinion effectively kills the amnesty plan for the duration of Obama’s presidency.
A tie vote sets no legal precedent but leaves in place the lower court rulings that Obama lacked the authority to shield 4 million illegals from deportation and give them Social Security numbers, work permits and other benefits.

More Misinformation from the Media:
“[Jamiel] Shaw [Sr.] is the father of Jamiel Shaw Jr., a 17-year-old football star who was killed in 2008 in Los Angeles by Pedro Espinoza, a 19-year-old undocumented gang member who, as the popular story went, mistook the unaffiliated Shaw for a rival gang member and shot him to death. (The actual case may have been more complex.) Anti-immigration advocates seized on the story in 2008 to bolster their anti-immigration arguments, and Trump has revived the story for a 2016 audience.
“Shaw’s blackness gives him cover from accusations of anti-immigrant racism that follow Trump and his white supporters, and his awful grief laid bare chastises would be critics into silence. . . . The response from pro-immigrant forces has never been able to meet the emotional urgency of Shaw’s arguments. Such is the power of tokenism.” – Trump’s Racial and Ethnic Hierarchy Blacks v. Mexicans and Muslims, The Nation, Julianne Hing, 6/16/16
Fact Check: In this article Hing tries to marginalize the American victims of illegal immigration, by discrediting Jamiel Shaw, a murder victim of an illegal alien (not undocumented) gang member. The reference the case being “more complex” is an ugly and unjustified aspersion against Shaw. Hing links to a 2008 article that appeared in the Los Angeles Times which quoted the claim of Espinoza’s lawyer that Shaw was himself a gang member.
An excellent reply to this charge came from Ira Mehlman of the Federation of American Immigration Reform, “The accusation was nothing more than a sleazy tactic of a lawyer trying to get his client off. No evidence was ever produced to substantiate the posthumous character assault against the murder victim.”
Another ugly insinuation is that Shaw Sr. is just a black “token” being used by Trump and his supporters to hide their racial agenda. It suggests that his grief isn’t significant because he’s just a pawn, too stupid to realize that he is being used. Could the writer concede that he might just be an American citizen, irrespective of his race, who is tired of his country being abused by illegal aliens—a man with compelling experience about this abuse?
Evidently not. The only perspective Hing seems to allow is the racial narrative of P.C. (political correctness). Trump is white and opposed to illegal immigration, so therefore in the fantasyland of P.C. he is a “racist.” As evidence she cited his “bashing a Latino judge.” That alleged bashing, consisted of Trump suggesting that this judge, Gonzalo Curiel, might not be impartial toward him because he advocates border control.
That was not an unreasonable suspicion, given that the judge is affiliated with organizations bearing the name “La Raza (the Race),” which advocate on behalf of illegal aliens. A founder of the state “La Raza” legal group he belongs to was a man named Mario Obledo, who once stated that if white Californians didn’t like the demographic changes illegal immigration was bringing, they could “go back to Europe.”
If journalists like Hing are truly concerned about “racism,” they might take notice of people like Obledo and La Raza groups when they write about immigration. But that’s not likely to happen as long as P.C. blinds them to any other point of view.
