George W. Bush Institute on "Growth and Immigration" (Matthew Denhart) - 12/05/12

Yesterday, George W Bush returned to the public eye to promote massive immigration, saying ( peekURL.com/zjd4VCT ): America is a nation of immigrants. Immigrants have helped build the country that we have become, and immigrants can help build a dynamic tomorrow. Not only do immigrants help build our economy, they invigorate our soul. [...] America can be a lawful society and a welcoming society...

PNAE claims immigrants involved in 76% of *some* patents; let's show them wrong (Mike Bloomberg) - 06/26/12

... billionaires and have all day to be an immigration booster. Upload the lists to your site or somewhere else and I'll link to it. You do want to make Mike Bloomberg look bad, right? P.S. Doing things like this takes a lot of my time, so your generous donations are appreciated. See the block above.

Fareed Zakaria's GPS Road Map for immigration (CNN, Bloomberg, globalism, Kobach) - 06/06/12

... obvious this is going to be an immigration booster extravaganza, with Zakaria bringing on those who are on the wrong side and then allowing them to make fallacious arguments or mislead. Let's take a look: Zakaria begins by taking viewers to Japan, a nation with a shrinking and aging population – and one of the world’s most restrictive immigration policies. Author and Economist editor Robert...

Charles Kenny: worst, most anti-American immigration editorial ever? (development economist, Businessweek, World Bank, apartheid) - 07/13/11

I've read hundreds of immigration editorials and articles full of bad, anti-American ideas and even a couple of articles advocating for hiring illegal aliens, but an editorial by Charles Kenny (see the link) reaches a new low ("How to Be a Patriot: Hire an Illegal Immigrant/Laws against illegal immigration make little economic or moral sense. So why punish the brave citizens who break them?",...

James Ledbetter of Slate hypes immigration as a cure-all, despite reality - 09/09/10

Tossing reality aside, James Ledbetter of Slate offers "Give Us Your Tired, Your Poor. Really. We Mean It /Economists are making the case politicians are afraid to: Immigration is great for the U.S." (slate.com/id/2265974). Here are a few ways Ledbetter isn't in touch with the reality that the rest of us share: 1. He makes the misleading claim that "If you pay attention only to politics, you'd be...

Kyle de Beausset: illegal aliens more American than Americans, immigrants better than citizens - 07/07/10

Kyle de Beausset is a Harvard University student and occasional quote source in support of the anti-American DREAM Act. Recent comments from him show that his anti-Americanism doesn't just include letting illegal aliens take college educations from Americans, but is much more generalized. By itself, this means little since he isn't that well-known. However, it might be interesting to speculate...

CIPC bogus immigration study: "immigrants" pay their way, more likely to be employed - 01/28/10

... released a new and highly misleading immigration booster study purporting to claim that immigrants in California pay their way and that they're employed at a greater rate than non-immigrants. The second might be true, and in that case that's an argument against massive immigration since some or many are taking jobs that Americans could be doing. You can get the PDF at caimmigrant.org/...

Fiscal Policy Institute, NY Daily News mislead about benefits of massive immigration - 11/30/09

The Fiscal Policy Institute has released a new report called "Contribution of Immigrant Workers to the Country's 25 Largest Metropolitan Areas"; it was sponsored by the Carnegie Corporation and a Service Employees International Union local and you can get the PDF at fiscalpolicy.org/immigration.html.

Matt Richtel /NYT helps Google, Silicon Valley promote H-1B visas - 04/11/09

Matt Richtel of the New York Times offers "A Google Whiz Searches for His Place on Earth" (link), part of that paper's "Remade in America: A series about the newest immigrants and their impact on American institutions". It's a true multimedia edutainment spectacular including audio, a slideshow, and even interactive features. And, as it happens, our ticky-tack laws and ticky-tack native-borns are...

Rosa Brooks to Pentagon; CFR, Soros; her Darwinistic, anti-American immigration policy; journalism bailout - 04/09/09

Former Los Angeles Times columnist Rosa Brooks is going through the revolving door again, this time to be an advisor at the Defense Department, specifically to Michele Flournoy the Undersecretary of Defense for Policy. There's a lot about her not to like; here's just some of it: 1. She was affiliated with George Soros' Open Society Institute and the Council on Foreign Relations. 2. During the...

James Poniewozik: Ugly Americans want to deport Ugly Betty! - 11/29/06

James Poniewozik is Time's TV critic, and he offers a ludicrous slab of pro-illegal immigration propaganda in "Ugly, the American". It's about the 'Ugly Betty' TV show: ...Smart and sweet-hearted, she embodies the Puritan-Shaker-Quaker principle of valuing inner good over outer appearance. She's as Norman Rockwell as a chestnut-stuffed turkey. The actress who plays her is even named America...

"Let Their People Come" - 07/03/03

VodkaPundit [1] and HereticalIdeas [2] link to a WSJ editorial about immigration, "Let Their People Come." [3] The article, as one might suspect, supports immigration. However, no details are given as to whether that includes legal immigration or illegal immigration, what types and levels thereof, etc. The entire editorial could be replaced with the simple statement "immigration good," and...
