Why are Republicans so Afraid of Immigration Reform?

Bob PriceIt's a simple question really. Why exactly are Republican's so afraid of the topic of Immigration Reform? Immigration Reform is an issue I have been writing about for years. I have come to have a pretty deep understanding of the issues and how people react to discussion of this very emotional topic. Border Security? That's a pretty simple one. Secure the border - end of discussion. But Immigration Reform, that is a much tougher can of worms, and it can be a potential third-rail topic for Republican candidates and elected officials. Just ask Congressman John Carter (R-TX) from Round Rock, Texas.   Read more »

Drug Cartel Shootout on U.S. Soil as Violence Increases in SE Arizona - Interview with Cochise County Sheriff Mark Dannels on Defending the Border and the Constitution

U.S. Border with Mexico in ArizonaFor years, the Obama Administration has been pushing the fable that the border is secure and drug cartel violence is limited to areas south of the U.S. Mexico Border. A recent report on by Brandon Darby and other news reports seem to indicate that is just not true. Recently, I traveled to Tucson, Arizona to attend the Brian Terry Foundation Benefit Dinner in honor of fallen U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry. While in Tucson, I headed down to Arizona's southeastern border with Mexico and visited with Cochise County Sheriff Mark Dannels who had a lot to say on this subject.

Will Government Shutdown Kill Immigration Reform for This Year?

As the Congress of the United States is now all consumed with one of its primary constitutional duties, creating a budget for government spending, hopes for a solution to our nation's border security and immigration problems seem to be dwindling quickly. After a visit this weekend to the Arizona/Mexico border and a meeting with the family of fallen Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, it is very sad to see this issue being kicked down the road.   Read more »

Immigration Works USA Teams up with Congressman Poe to Discuss What Houston Employers Need

Last week, the group, Immigration Works USA, hosted a panel discussion moderated by U.S. Congressman Ted Poe called Immigration Reform: What Houston Employers Need. The event was held at Pappadeaux with opening remarks given by owner, Chris Pappas. Tamar Jacoby, president of Immigration Works USA was also on hand to kick off the event and shared a little about herself and the group:

"We're a national federation of small business owners working for better immigration law. We represent everyone from restauranteurs, to hotel owners to farmers to construction contractors to cleaning and maintenance to healthcare employers. And they are employers who love their immigrant workers, depend on their immigrant workers, want nothing more than to have a legal immigrant workforce. So we're very pleased today to be here. We're active in Washington; I spend a lot of time roaming around the halls of Congress. What we really do is try to lift up the voices of some of those employers so that they can make their case directly to the members in their community and to their elected officials."

We Must Stop Amnesty! But, is anybody even asking for it?

Words Without MeaningThe battle cry goes far and wide... No Amnesty, No Way, No How! Great! I am with you 1000%. Absolutely no amnesty. But wait, no one is asking for amnesty. So why is it that you hear someone parroting this mantra of "No Amnesty, No Amnesty" every time you turn on talk radio or go to a meeting where anything even remotely connected (or sometimes not even connected at all) to immigration is being discussed? It is the new word for "Shut the hell up!"

You see, the left has been doing this for years. Disagree with something they want and they scream "RACIST!" at the top of their lungs to the offending conservative knowing that because no one wants to be called a racist,

Are Federation of Americans for Immigration Reform (FAIR), NumbersUSA, and Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) Really Playing the GOP for a Bunch of Suckers? SPIES IN THE CAMP - Part III – NumbersUSA

FAIR has been successful in manipulating the masses by creating spin-off groups such as NumbersUSA and The Center for Immigration Studies (“CIS”). Most people are unaware of the ties between John Tanton and NumbersUSA’s leader, Roy Beck. However, it was John Tanton’s non-profit organization, US Inc. that spawned NumbersUSA.
