Larry Kudlow offers "Immigration reform is pro-growth and pro-GOP" (cnbc . com/id/101685285). I'll briefly describe how it's wrong and what he's intentionally or not ignoring. He writes:

Michael Bloomberg's horribly bad immigration ideas (crime, spending, family separation, Zakaria, CNN) - 06/07/12

On the Fareed Zakaria CNN special on immigration, New York City mayor and billionaire Michael Bloomberg promotes his very bad immigration policy. From this:

Immigrants' List are immigration lawyers; Daniel Strauss and Huffington Post don't reveal that (Immigration Heroes List) - 01/17/12

Immigrants List is a pro-massive immigration PAC that recently named their list of top 10 immigration heroes [1], i.e., those who support massive and/or illegal immigration.

Immigrants and the Fortune 500: how Partnership for a New American Economy misleads (Bloomberg, Murdoch, Villaraigosa, Ballmer) - 09/04/11

In June, the "Partnership for a New American Economy" ("PNAE") - a coalition of Big Business billionaires and Big City mayors - released a misleading report designed to promote massive immigration. The report claims that a large number of Fortune 500 companies were founded by immigrants or their children, which is generally correct just as long as you look at it the right way and avoid discussing just how different things are now versus then.

Obama meets with "stakeholders" for amnesty propaganda push ("immigration reform") - 04/19/11

Mike Bloomberg: illegal aliens are needed to tend to golf courses (greenskeepers) - 11/26/10

This is a flashback to comments Michael Bloomberg made on March 31, 2006 (link): Bloomberg, who co-hosts a Friday radio talk show on WABC, was discussing the controversial immigration bills in Congress that have resulted in protests across the nation when he was asked to name a typical menial job an illegal immigrant might do. The mayor, an avid duffer, immediately thought of golf. "You and I are beneficiaries of these jobs," Bloomberg told his co-host, John Gambling. "You and I both play golf. Who takes care of the greens and the fairways in your golf course?" "Nobody wants to deport them,...

How "centrist" will No Labels be on immigration? - 11/26/10

There's a new "centrist" group called No Labels in town [1], but they actually appear to be just a vehicle for a presidential run by Michael Bloomberg. And, it looks like on immigration and trade they'll support policies that are establishment-friendly but which cause harm to everyone else. One of the leaders of the group is former George W Bush advisor Mark McKinnon, and one of those who'll be appearing at their kickoff announcement is Antonio Villaraigosa. Another person involved is John Avlon. And, another person involved in some way is former Los Angeles Times editor Andres Martinez (...

Partnership for a New American Economy: Murdoch, Bloomberg, CEOs, mayors, (Fox News?) to push amnesty - 06/24/10

Don't trust what you see on Fox News. Rupert Murdoch, Michael Bloomberg, big-city mayors, Hewlett Packard, Boeing, and Disney have formed a new group called "Partnership for a New American Economy" to push comprehensive immigration reform, aka amnesty (link): The group says it intends to make its point to policymakers by "publishing studies, conducting polls, convening forums and sponsoring public education campaigns." ...The group's main immigration goals are to secure the borders, develop an easy system for employers to verify work eligibility, hold companies accountable for breaking the...

New York Times, admitting that illegal aliens are taking jobs from unemployed Americans, still supports amnesty - 01/06/10

The New York Times offers "Immigration’s New Year" (nytimes.com/2010/01/06/opinion/06wed1.html) which contains this: Opponents of (comprehensive immigration reform) say the downturn is a terrible time to fix the system, but they are wrong... It is not a question of adding new people to the work force; they are here, many helping keep the economy afloat while tolerating low pay and abuse from lawbreaking employers who prefer them to American workers. A corollary to the above - one that either the NYT can't figure out or thinks their readers can't figure out - is that those who are here now are...

On May 5, a secret meeting was held in New York City apparently to discuss the global financial crisis. Those in attendance included Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, David Rockefeller Jr., George Soros, Michael Bloomberg, Ted Turner, and Oprah Winfrey. No, really. The source with the scoop was Irish Central (link), and ABC News verified that each of those listed attended the meeting (link): "The overwhelming reason for the meeting was need -- that was the issue that galvanized everyone to participate," Patricia Stonesifer, senior advisor to the Gates foundation's trustees, Bill and Melinda Gates...

WeAreChange "reporter" arrested for trying to ask Mayor Mike Bloomberg a question? - 03/29/09

From this: WeAreChange founder and activist Luke Rudkowski was arrested at the Hilton Hotel on Manhattan [March 28] for attempting to question New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg about his refusal to pay for the health care of 9/11 first responders. Rudkowski had Infowars press credentials and a video camera when he was singled out by Bloomberg’s security in the lobby of the hotel located at West 53rd Street and Avenue of the Americas (Sixth Avenue). My reactions, in order: 1. Good. 2. OK, maybe I shouldn't have said "good", but there's probably something we aren't being told about what he...

New York Immigration Coalition wants stimulus funds for immigrants, illegal aliens - 03/12/09

On Tuesday, the far-left New York Immigration Coalition, allied groups, and about a thousand supporters rallied in Albany, demanding that stimulus funds be given to immigrants. Over four years ago I noted that the NYIC doesn't differentiate between legal immigrants and illegal aliens, and that's also true in this case: although they'll take pains not to admit it, they clearly want stimulus funds to go to illegal aliens.

Bailout: banks wanted thousands of foreign workers as they laid-off Americans (H-1B) - 02/01/09

The average annual...

New York Times offers hazy thoughts on immigration - 07/20/06

The NYT offers the editorial "Hazy Days of Immigration". As you might expect, it's wrong. Just as an example, let's take a look at the final paragraph: Mayor Michael Bloomberg of New York City said it well, at a Senate hearing: "It's as if we expect border control agents to do what a century of communism could not: defeat the natural market forces of supply and demand and defeat the natural human desire for freedom and opportunity.

The first is creating a national database so employers would know they're hiring legal workers: "The database must identify all job applicants in America based on documentation that cannot be corrupted--fingerprints or DNA, for example."

AVWatch: The L.A. Times covers its bets - 07/02/05

The Los Angeles Times has a few reports on the inauguration of Antonio Villaraigosa, and they also offer "Much Unsaid in Villaraigosa's Inaugural Talk". Summary: in his speech, AV had a lot of big ideas, but few details were provided and he's going to have a very difficult task making them happen. The LAT has been a long-time supporter of the former member of a racial separatist group, including ignoring or covering up for his past.
