Nancy Pelosi: just being here illegally "is not reason for deportation"; cheers George Bush on immigration - 12/16/13
Rep. Nancy Pelosi appeared on Telemundo yesterday and showed that she has little use for our immigration laws.
Summary This post has a list of the speakers at the Democratic National Convention and links to more information on their immigration positions when known. There are also a preview of how the immigration issue will be presented at the convention, and some things you can do if you oppose illegal immigration. Preview
A couple of days ago, the Democrats in Congress gave Mexican president Felipe Calderon a standing ovation after he criticized the new Arizona immigration law on the House floor. It gets even worse, as shown on this video: peekURL.com/vjxddf4 Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, and no doubt others were wearing rubber bracelets designed to show solidarity against Arizona's law during the Calderon speech. From this earlier story about Rep. Joe Baca (link): As part of his general boycott of Arizona -- which includes his refusal to fly through Phoenix on his weekly trips to and from Washington -- Baca, D-...
Democrats in Congress cheer Mexico's president after he complains about Arizona's immigration law; what to do about it - 05/20/10
In a shocking display earlier today, Democrats in Congress gave Felipe Calderon, president of Mexico, a standing ovation after he criticized the new Arizona immigration law at a joint meeting of Congress: peekurl.com/v7a5zjk
Apparently some of the questions at recent townhalls have been about illegal aliens receiving Obama healthcare. Unfortunately, if the report at  is accurate, the questions have been weak and may have actually helped the Democrats rather than revealed what they intend to do. As detailed by Obama himself, the Democrats do intend to give UHC to current illegal aliens by changing their status first.
Hannah Dreier of Media Matters for America offers a misleading view of Nancy Pelosi's recent remarks in Dobbs falsely claimed Pelosi said "immigration law enforcement is, quote-unquote, 'un-American" (mediamatters.org/items/200903240035): Summary: On his radio show, Lou Dobbs asked his guest for his "reaction" to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi "saying last week that enforcement in the workplace, immigration law enforcement is, quote-unquote, 'un-American.' " In fact, Pelosi criticized as "un-American" immigration raids that separate undocumented parents from their documented children, not "...
America's Voice agrees with Pelosi "un-American" quote; starts letter campaign (Frank Sharry) - 03/20/09
America's Voice - run by Frank Sharry - has started a letter-writing campaign to "Thank Speaker Pelosi for Her Leadership". The "leadership" in question is her recent comments that family-separating immigration raids are "un-American", comments that she later reinforced by calling those raids "not the American way". Says they (americasvoiceonline.org/page/speakout/PelosiReforms): She said that knocking down doors in the middle of the night to tear mothers and fathers from their children is un-American. We agree. Unsurprisingly, right-wing radio hosts and TV commentators have launched a full-...
Pelosi doubles down! Family separating raids are "not the American way"; illegal aliens make U.S. "more American" - 03/19/09
Earlier today, Nancy Pelosi spoke at the U.S.-Mexico Border Issues Conference and did not back down from her earlier comments in which she said that immigration raids that result in family separation are "un-American" (her press release here). In effect, Pelosi seeks to replace our current immigration laws with a "Pelosi Rule": if you come here illegally and have a child, you get to stay. Needless to say, this would have the impact of greatly encouraging future illegal immigration. And, the comprehensive immigration reform she supports supposedly mandates increased enforcement; does anyone...
Nancy Pelosi: immigration enforcement separating families is "un-American" (Luis Gutierrez, Kelly Zito) - 03/08/09
Kelly Zito of the San Francisco Chronicle offers a heavily-biased, untrustworthy article ("Pelosi: End raids splitting immigrant families", link) about yesterday's "National Family Unity" event in San Francisco. That's part of a national tour designed to press for comprehensive immigration reform that's sponsored by the Congressional Hispanic Caucus and led by Luis Gutierrez. Because Zito doesn't provide full quotes and because she doesn't even once use the word "illegal" or even "undocumented", it's not clear just how stupid the remarks from Nancy Pelosi were: "Our future is about our...
Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi has uploaded a cute video to Youtube called the "Capitol Cat Cam". And, it's actually from her: youtube.com/user/NancyPelosi
Mexico's president Felipe Calderon met with Barack Obama for an hour and a half earlier today in Washington DC. After the meeting, Calderon said: "I've proposed to President Obama that we make a strategic alliance of our two governments to confront the common problems and resolve them together, among them security." And, it looks like Obama is open to that idea; see the statement from change dot gov cached here: [Obama] expressed his continued commitment to upgrading NAFTA to strengthen labor and environmental provisions to reflect the values that are widely shared in both of our countries,...
I missed this when it first came out in late October 2008, but an unrelated Associated Press article contained the following suggestion from Nancy Pelosi (link): Pelosi also said Congress would have to tackle the politically sticky job of overhauling immigration laws in the new Congress, after a bipartisan measure collapsed last year. The estimated 12 million immigrants in the U.S. illegally "are part of the U.S. economy. We cannot send them all home, and we cannot send them all to jail, so we have to address it," Pelosi said. Any solution would have to be bipartisan, she said, so it may...
The new first rule of the Democratic Party is: "Twist anything an opponent of Barack Obama says in order to play the race card". If BHO wins the presidency, expect them to abide by that rule endlessly. The latest example comes from multiple "liberals" who are trying to racialize John McCain referring to Barack Obama as "that one" at last night's "debate".
Earlier this year, a Border Patrol agent in the Tucson sector named Denton Moberly was allegedly poisoned using a pesticide while eating at some sort of restaurant. The details haven't been publicly released, but a summary is here and a site with updates is here.
And, not the regular kind of imaginary pr000n involving Nancy Pelosi getting busy, but the real kind. Apparently their standards aren't as strict as I've heard. There's a screenshot in the extended entry for those with a strong enough constitution.
Rep. Lynn Woolsey (D-CA) tries tying ICE's hands on immigration raids; Mexico-linked ACLU cheers - 05/20/08
Rep. Lynn Woolsey, Democrat from Petaluma, California and chairwoman of the Workforce Protection Subcommittee of the House Education and Labor Committee (some background here), held a hearing this morning regarding ICE raids (link): Congress should enact legislation giving more teeth to existing federal guidelines aimed at ensuring that children's needs are considered when their parents are arrested in raids by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enfocement agents [Woolsey said]. The agency's November 2007 guidelines outlining humanitarian concerns to be addressed during raids "are not being...
Responding to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus complaining about the House leadership not supporting "comprehensive immigration reform", aka amnesty, Nancy Pelosi said the following today: "I am frustrated, too... And as I have said since the day we took over here, we're not going to have an immigration bill unless the president takes the lead on it. There is no way to have a partisan immigration bill.
Raul Grijalva, Congressional Hispanic Caucus: lack of immigration "reform" is "spineless" - 04/24/08
Yesterday the Congressional Hispanic Caucus complained about the failure of other Democrats to support "comprehensive immigration reform", aka a massive amnesty. ...Rep. Raul Grijalva of Arizona called the Democratic caucus "spineless." "Today my party wants to do what is easy, not exactly what is right," said Rep. Luis Gutierrez of Illinois. "The leaders in our party who are arguing for consideration of helping just a few immigrants are risking the future of all immigrants." Rep. Joe Baca, D-Calif., who chairs the Hispanic Caucus, said the visa and other bills under consideration were "...
From a FAIR bulletin (link): Capitol Hill news sources have been buzzing for the past 48 hours about backroom negotiations in the House of Representatives that may bring comprehensive immigration reform "lite" to the floor. Congressional Quarterly reports that Congressman Joe Baca (D-CA), Chairman of the Hispanic Caucus, is leading the fight for legislation that would provide a five-year amnesty visa to illegal aliens currently in the U.S.
Texas state senator Leticia van de Putte delivered the Spanish-language version of the Democratic Party's response to the Bush State of the Union address. Republicans and even most Democrats might want to pay closer attention to what Democratic leaders are saying behind their backs (example from Senator Bob Menendez), yet I don't think this will get much play.
San Fran Nan brings gourmet touch to Congress (Nancy Pelosi, comrades grab baguettes on way to barricades) - 01/15/08
While John Edwards, Hillary Clinton, and Barack Obama tour the countryside telling prospective voters just how bad things are, some people in Capitol City are living it up: those lucky few who get to dine at the U.S. House of Representatives' own eating establishments. Thanks to Nancy Pelosi's "Greening the Capitol" plan (link), plucky leftwingers can fight for peace and freedom while dining on such staples as: Peruvian Purple Potatoes, apple wood bacon, champagne vinaigrette, and shallots...
Felipe Calderon explicitly wants Mexican consuls to meddle in U.S. immigration debate (non-profits) - 12/07/07
The only thing shocking about this is that he'd openly admit it: [Today, Mexican president Felipe Calderon] asked his diplomatic representatives in the U.S. to participate in the public debate on immigration by appearing at public events, talking more to the media and working with nonprofit groups to promote Mexican immigrants' role in supporting the U.S. economy. "The key is to neutralize this strategy of confrontation and discrimination that forms part of U.S. society's mistaken perception, and be able to newly focus arguments on the complimentary aspects of our economies," he said [to...
On November 16 and 17 a group of activists from Mexico and the U.S. met in Mexico City for the "First Parliament of Mexican Migrant Leaders Living In The U.S.A.". This doesn't appear to have been an official Mexican government event, but many of those attending were apparently Mexican political leaders, and some of the Americans attending serve on the Institute for Mexicans Abroad (IME, www.ime.gob.mx), an advisory council to Mexico's president.
Leslie Sanchez ("director of the White House Initiative on Hispanic Education from 2001-2003") reads Univision's site and finds out that they're biased against the GOP, despite all the pandering that the Republicans have done. While she doesn't indicate anything beyond outreaching to the Spanish media, one can assume that she wants the GOP to try to out-pander the Democrats by stressing social issues (abortion, etc.) and promising immigration "reform" (aka, an amnesty).
Elvira Arellano is truly the gift that keeps on giving, even when she's thousands of miles away: An 8-year-old boy led 200 chanting, singing immigration activists to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's office today armed with a letter begging the California Democrat to take action to stop deportations. Saul Arellano, the son of recently deported illegal alien Elvira Arellano, marched through the halls of Congress to

When the left-wing support for free speech meets racial power groups like the League of United Latin American Citizens and the National Council of La Raza, watch out.

St. Cyndi Sheehan - America's favorite drama queen - has been ex-communicated (i.e., booted off DailyKos; I have been "warned"; dailykos.com/story/2007/7/12/91014/1295) due to apostasy: she's apparently going to run against Nancy Pelosi... and as an independent! See, DailyKos is a site for Democrats and designed to elect Democrats.

STRIVEing for amnesty: the Flake/Guitierrez "Security Through Regularized Immigration and a Vibrant Economy" Act - 03/22/07
We're seemingly moments away from the release of the Jeff Flake/[[Luis Guitierrez]] "STRIVE Act", a massive amnesty for illegal aliens. "STRIVE" stands for the Orwellian-named "Security Through Regularized Immigration and a Vibrant Economy". Please contact your representatives and stress your opposition to the scheme, and if you find anyone promoting it do your best to discredit them. The far-lefties have anticipated the bill, with the Asian American Justice Center "encouraged" and, not to be outdone, the American Immigration Lawyers Association "enthusiastically welcomes" it. Turning to...
The New York Times has yet another editorial calling for "immigration reform" entitled "Immigration Misery". It's thankfully shorter than the last such screed ("They Are America"), but just as wrong. This time, they're in their "sleazy/maudlin" mode: A screaming baby girl has been forcibly weaned from breast milk and taken, dehydrated, to an emergency room, so that the nation's borders will be secure.
The results of the latest New York Times/CBS News Poll are in: While the war in Iraq remains the overarching issue in the early stages of the 2008 campaign, access to affordable health care is at the top of the public's domestic agenda, ranked as far more important than immigration, cutting taxes or promoting traditional values. The poll asks about making "health insurance available to all Americans". The problem i

From this: President Bush waded gingerly back into the debate over immigration Wednesday, as two of his top lieutenants urged Congress to grant "legal status" to an estimated 12 million people now living in the country illegally. Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutierrez and Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff stopped short, however, of endorsing a plan to give illegal immigrants a chance at citizenship. "I believe what people want first and foremost is to have legal status," Gutierrez said. "I don't think everyone wants to be a citizen." Well, it's good that he doesn't "think" that....
IBD discusses Nancy Pelosi supporting the DREAM Act in this editorial: The speaker of the House backs in-state tuition for illegal aliens from neighboring countries but not for American citizens from neighboring states.
