"fauxcahontas" is just the start: she's fake on policy too. Ask her supporters why she'd drive down wages for lower-skilled American workers. You should do that especially if you *agree* with her stated position on financial matters: she's fake on wages, and she...
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-Rialto, is distributing...
... is that Congress - including Nancy Pelosi - would be so open about standing with a foreign leader against the will of the majority of Americans. Recall that a few years ago various members of the Mexican Congress were to meet with members of the U.S. Congress and that Nancy Pelosi was a no-show. It's all basically out in the open now.
Unlike most others, I'm going to describe how you can do...
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...
... 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-...
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...
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....
... just how stupid the remarks from Nancy Pelosi were:
"Our future is about our children," Pelosi told a crowd of mostly Latino families at St. Anthony's Church.
No matter if those families arrived two days ago or centuries ago, Pelosi said "that opportunity, that determination, that hope has made American more American."
She said, "Taking parents from their children ... that's un-American."...
... 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
Not only does it start out cute, but it ends on an incredibly funny (and original!) note that almost made me forget about all the problems facing the U.S. such as massive illegal immigration, trillions of dollars proposed or being...
Calderon also met with Nancy Pelosi and others from Congress today; a statement from Silvestre Reyes is here. Needless to say, they also discussed amnesty.
UPDATE: Per this, Calderon told Bush in a later meeting, "We have always been willing to revise aspects" of NAFTA.
And, this translates eluniversal.com.mx/notas/568942.html as:

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...
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.

UPDATE: Nancy Pelosi's blog (?!) links to a PDF with Woolsey's opening whine (speaker.gov/blog/?p=1349, "...we are still hearing heartbreaking stories of the impact on children... ...They have been separated from their families in the cruelest of ways for long periods of time and many of their parents have been deported...", etc. etc.) as well as a video of the remarks of...

"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.
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...
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.

In this case it was on her hunger strike. While they made a lot of proposals, according to that the one most likely to stick is a "Permanent Parliament" which might meet next year in Washington DC.

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...

We must enact immigration reform that is humane and honors our American tradition of being a nation of immigrants and a land of opportunity for all... It provides an excellent framework for Congress and the president to begin work on the vital task of immigration reform......
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:

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...

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. Arizonans, among others, think otherwise. And, by the way, it's illegal.
...Title 8, Chapter 14, Sec.
As previously discussed, several Mexican congressmen came to Washington to meet with their counterparts from the (U.S.) Democratic Party, and the two groups together demanded an end to deportations until "immigration reform" passes.
