Self-Interest and the Inevitable Path to Immigration Reform

By Mark Salter – June 21, 2012
 

There are over 12 million people residing in the United States who immigrated here illegally. Most will never leave. Politicians can rail about them, make it harder to employ them, deny them every conceivable government benefit, but they will not go home. America is their home.  Read More…

Obama Seeks to Nullify our Immigration Laws

The making of a constitutional crisis

 

Posted by Daniel Horowitz (Diary)  Friday, June 15th at 10:19AM EDT

King Barack Hussein Kardashian Obama thinks that he gets to invent laws where they don’t exists and disregard the ones that are already on the books.

In yet another demonstration of contempt for the rule of law and the separation of powers, the Obama administration has announced that it will no longer enforce our immigration laws (not that he’s been enforcing them until now).  Read More…

Obama makes election-year change in deportation policy

By Jonathan Easley and Jordy Yager – 06/15/12 10:03 AM ET

 President Obama will sign an executive order Friday to significantly alter U.S. immigration policy to reduce deportations of illegal immigrants who came to the country at a young age.

The politically charged decision comes as Obama faces a tough reelection fight against Republican Mitt Romney, with Hispanic voters in swing states seen as a key bloc.  Read More…

Federal Appeals Court Upholds Most of Arizona Voter ID Law

By on April 17, 2012 in Blog, News
 
 

In a ruling which demonstrated just how radical is the Obama Administration’s opposition to Voter ID laws, the very liberal U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has upheld Arizona’s voter-approved 2004 law requiring voters to show proof of citizenship before receiving a ballot – a big victory in the battle against voter fraud in the runup to the November elections.

The Appeals Court mostly shot down the challenges to the law, which had itself been upheld in Arizona U.S. District Court. Arizona can demand to see certain forms of identification that proves citizenship, the court ruled.

And if someone doesn’t have those forms of ID, paying the fees to obtain the ID isn’t the same as a “poll tax.”  More…

Reid: Republicans pandering to Tea Party on immigration
 
 
By Anjeanette Damon

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., accused Republicans of “harshness, bitterness, meanness” and of “catering to the Tea Party” in their approach to immigration policy during a conference call Monday.

As if that weren’t enough, he took it one step further, implying Republicans are allowing prejudice against Hispanics to govern their policy-making.

Fla. Vote Winners Are Latino Dignity & Self-Deportation

 

By Roy Beck, Tuesday, January 31, 2012, 10:33 PM EST – posted on NumbersUSA

Offered a stark choice on the illegal immigration issue, Florida Latino Republicans today broke nearly 2-1 for the candidate with the firmest opposition to amnesty and the strongest support for enforcement. 

It was a strong rebuke of the majority of media commentators who insist that Latino-Americans can only be won by promising rewards for lawbreaking. It added a sign of much greater dignity in the rule of law for the Latino population than most in the media are willing to give it.

And it was a victory for the concept of self-deportation as an alternative to mass deportation and mass legalization. 

Nobody can say that Floridians — both Latino and non-Latino — weren’t provided a clear choice on the immigration issue.  Immigration may not have been a top issue for most of the voters but it was one of the most publicized parts of the debates and contest.

  • Newt Gingrich campaigned hard among Latino voters with his continuing call for legalization and work permits for many illegal aliens and his pounding criticism of his opponent as “anti-immigrant” for opposing legalization.
  • Mitt Romney in two debates continued his campaign-long opposition to long-term work permits and legalization of illegal aliens and created a national media sensation by talking about “self-deportation” as the top goal for the illegal population.

Florida Republicans went strongly for Romney (46% to 32%), but the Latinos among them went for the anti-amnesty, pro-self-deportation candidate by an even greater margin.  More…

End Refundable Tax Credits for Illegals

Posted by Daniel Horowitz (Diary)/Monday, January 30th at 12:26PM EST

Much ink has been poured over the fact that 51% of tax filers paid no federal income taxes in 2009.  There is less attention directed towards the more outrageous statistic; 30% of tax filers had a negative tax liability that year.  In other words, they made money off the tax system.

Those who won the jackpot on tax day benefited primarily from refundable tax credits; the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), Additional Child Tax Credit (ACTC, the refundable portion of child tax credit), and the now-expired Making Work Pay Credit.  In 2011, refundable credits cost the treasury about $94.4 billion.   Keep in mind that this is just one small portion of the burgeoning welfare empire, approaching $1 trillion in total federal, state, and local expenditures.   While it would be nice to get rid of these redistributive “tax expenditures” for everyone, we could start with illegal aliens.

Last July, the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Collection released a shocking report detailing how illegal aliens are able to utilize a filing loophole to obtain billions in ACTC funds.  While EITC appropriations are protected from illegals (those who don’t engage in identity theft) because they are only awarded to those who provide a valid Social Security number, the same cannot be said for the ACTC.  Illegals can receive the ACTC by merely providing an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) on their 1040 form, which is blithely issued by the IRS.  In 2010, according to the report, illegals received $4.2 billion in ACTC payouts.  That accounts for roughly 15% of all outlays for that refundable credit.

During the December imbroglio over the payroll tax cut, the House inserted a provision to require a valid Social Security number in order to collect the ACTC.  Republicans planned to use the savings as part of the offset package.  Now that the bill, HR 3630, is pending before the conference committee, we must ensure that the ACTC provision is part of a legitimate proposal to offset the cost of the extenders package.

How You Can Tell if a Candidate Is Serious About Ending Illegal Migration

Written by Selwyn Duke

Imagine that your son has a habit of sprinkling copious amounts of bird seed and setting up impromptu birdbaths in your yard. You then notice that your property is starting to seem like an aviary, and, as beautiful as the birds are, they’re becoming bothersome. So you approach your husband and ask him to remedy the problem. He then promises to build a scarecrow, but doesn’t complete the job.

And, when the situation persists and you again ask him to help, he simply scratches his head and replies, “You know, it’s just not realistic to remove all these birds from our property; it’s time-consuming, expensive, and uncompassionate to boot. Besides, every time I chase a few away, more come a little while later.” Now, given that he’s not even hinting at the obvious solution, let alone addressing it, would you think he was very serious about remedying the problem?  More…
