Democrats, far-left praise Marco Rubio's immigration moves (NCLR; Sharry; IPC; Obama and Gutierrez spox) - 01/20/13

... Rosenthal, Lawrence Downes, and NYT editorial) offers the editorial "The Immigration Saga Continues" ( peekURL.com/zJ5CuES ): Senators are huddling and floating proposals; some Republicans, like Marco Rubio of Florida, are positioning themselves as reformers with vague but positive-sounding statements. Senator Rubio has been out shopping his ideas: more visas for high-technology, professional...

An example of rightwing blogger incompetence (Tim Scott as a token) - 12/19/12

... this site for examples (start at NYT editorial and then see the topics page for much more). Right-wing bloggers can't do that: they can't present a convincing argument against what Reed writes and they have no clue about how to do things effectively. Let's take a look: * William Jacobson doesn't have an answer for anything Reed says other than to point out the lack of diversity on the NYT...

DHS revises Secure Communities to enable illegal immigration (John Morton, ACLU, CHIRLA, NDLON, NIF, AILA, NYT, Ammiano) - 06/20/11

... fundamentally flawed program." * The NYT editorial "Too Little, Too Late" (nytimes.com/2011/06/20/opinion/20mon3.html) ends with: If Mr. Morton really wants advice from experts, he already has the testimony of police chiefs and sheriffs, leaders of immigrant communities and a growing number of state politicians. They say the best thing that can be done with Secure Communities is to shut it down...

Andrew Rosenthal of NYT co-opts St. Patrick's Day to support massive and illegal immigration - 03/17/10

Andrew Rosenthal - editorial page editor of the New York Times - has no concept of shame, willing to bend any and all subjects to his favorite: supporting massive and illegal immigration. Just the latest instance comes in "San Patricio" (nytimes.com/2010/03/17/opinion/17wed4.html):

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...

New York Times opposes Secure Communities - 11/27/09

Channeling their inner ACLU, the New York Times offers "Immigrants, Criminalized" (nytimes.com/2009/11/27/opinion/27fri2.html) in which they come out against the Department of Homeland Security's Secure Communities program that checks whether those arrested can be deported. While the NYT pays lip service to those who don't want criminal aliens roving the streets, they appear to be living in a...

NYT admits massive problems caused by massive immigration, a policy they support - 11/18/09

... immigration that the NYT supports. The NYT editorial "Their Future Is Ours" discusses the findings of a recent academic study (link): There are 16 million children in immigrant families in the United States, one of the fastest-growing segments of the population. It’s an old American story made new in the age of globalization, when waves of human displacement in recent decades have led to...

Andrew Rosenthal/NYT supports AgJobs (indentured servitude bill) - 05/16/09

The NYT editorial "Farms and Immigrants" (link) supports the recently re-introduced AgJobs farmworker amnesty/indentured servitude bill: Because it’s hard to find Americans willing to endure the heat, cold and misery of stooping in the fields - or the low wages - growers overwhelmingly use undocumented workers. An estimated 75 percent or more of the agricultural work force is here illegally. This...

New York Times' immigration editorial is so obviously absurd they must think their readers are four years old - 04/22/09

Andrew Rosenthal of the New York Times offers the editorial "Immigration and the Unions" (link). He makes the usual mistakes and smears, and then shows that he thinks his readers are all four years old: "Workers don’t depress wages. Unscrupulous employers do," said Terence O’Sullivan, president of the Laborers' International Union of North America. Unemployment in his industry is above 21 percent...

Andrew Rosenthal /NYT: no immigration raids during Census - 03/31/09

Andrew Rosenthal, editorial page editor of the New York Times, offers "A Champion for the Census?" (link) about new Department of Commerce secretary Gary Locke. It contains this not very surprising suggestion: For instance, in the run-up to other censuses, the federal government has eased up on immigration raids and other intimidating forms of immigration enforcement in an effort to cut down on...

Andrew Rosenthal /NYT melting down: lies about opponents; defends MALDEF; wrong about Saenz? - 03/23/09

Andrew Rosenthal - editorial page editor of the New York Times - continues his slow-motion melt-down in "Obama Flinches on Immigration" (link). He keys off the selection of Thomas Perez rather than Thomas Saenz in an attempt to get Barack Obama to support comprehensive immigration reform. Here's the background on the Perez/Saenz issue.

Andrew Rosenthal/New York Times wants stimulus money to go to illegal aliens - 02/15/09

... aliens. Andrew Rosenthal heads the NYT editorial board; whether he wrote it or not, he's ultimately responsible so please send him a polite response: editorial *at* nytimes.com.

NYT: illegal immigration is "New York's special gift to America" (unhinged anti-Gillibrand editorial) - 01/31/09

The part Mexican-owned New York Times offers the editorial "Listening to Ms. Gillibrand" (link). They're wrong as usual, and they're even more unhinged than usual too. Red-faced with anger at country mouse Kirsten Gillibrand's Upstate ways, they lose it right about here: Ms. Gillibrand's House votes on immigration amounted to a repudiation of New York's special gift to America. She allied herself...

Mitt Romney joins Marriott International (hotels) board; NYT misleads to support illegal activity - 01/08/09

Mitt Romney has joined the board of Marriott International of hotels fame. Their chairman Bill Marriott is a strong supporter of comprehensive immigration reform, and, due to media corruption, Romney's exact position on that was never cleared up however he was generally against some forms of amnesty.

NYT: subsidize unemployed illegal alien day laborers to keep them in U.S. until economy improves - 12/30/08

The New York Times offers the editorial "Immigration Riddle" (link), a plea to keep illegal alien day laborers in a Long Island community during the economic downturn rather than taking actions to cause them to return to their home countries.

NYT editorial hopeful about Obama immigration picks; Bush "terrorized", "hunted down" illegal aliens - 12/26/08

As their Christmas gift to the world, the New York Times offered the editorial "Getting Immigration Right" (link). As with all their other editorials on this topic, it's wrong, beginning with their sleazy inability to admit that they and George W Bush are on the same side: This is why it is so important to reverse the Bush administration’s immigration tactics, which for years have attacked the...

New York Times: if the "nativists" weren't really "anti-immigration", they'd support massive immigration - 10/03/08

The New York Times editorial board is back with yet another very special editorial (link): One of the false pieties uttered by anti-immigration politicians is that they love immigrants. If that were true, Congress would not be having so much trouble passing a simple law to smooth out a serious kink in the legal immigration pipeline. Seriously, does anyone - even those in their target market - buy...

Barack Obama lies about Rush Limbaugh in Spanish-language ads - 09/17/08

The Barack Obama campaign has a new Spanish-language ad that features racial demagoguery and a distortion of Rush Limbaugh quotes.

John McCain ad was right and Barack Obama, MSM misled about BHO's kindergartener sex education bill - 09/16/08

Earlier this month the John McCain campaign released an ad (link, video link) saying in part: "Obama's one accomplishment? Legislation to teach "comprehensive sex education" to kindergartners. Learning about sex before learning to read? Barack Obama. This has led to a wide variety of BHO supporters - specifically those in the MSM - calling McCain a liar. To a certain extent, they have...

New York Times supports illegal activity, identity theft - 07/13/08

The New York Times editorial board continues to hit new lows, this time offering "The Shame of Postville, Iowa" (nytimes . com/2008/07/13/opinion/13sun2.html) about the May immigration raid at Agriprocessors meat packing plant in that town. Under the old way of doing things, the workers, nearly all Guatemalans, would have been simply and swiftly deported. But in a twist of Dickensian cruelty,...

Senator Bob Menendez uses alleged ICE abuses to hamper immigration enforcement (SPLC, NYT) - 06/16/08

Senator Robert Menendez is a racial demagogue who supports massive Hispanic immigration (of any kind) in order to obtain political power. His latest trick to oppose immigration enforcement was a speech he gave on the Senate floor last week [1] in which he made several inflammatory statements about the government he supposedly works for and highlighted rare examples of abuses - some merely alleged...

New York Times editorial mind reads the "immigrant vote", gets it wrong - 01/19/08

Earlier today, the New York Times offered "The Immigrant Vote" [1], promising wrath and ruin upon those who dare stand in the way of corrupt businesses profiting from illegal activity: Nevada is the first state on the election calendar with a sizable Hispanic vote, and among them will be a substantial number of immigrants. We don't know who they'll choose, but we do know they are anxious. They...

Desperate New York Times immigration editorial plays race card; afraid attrition might work? - 10/22/07

Like clockwork, the New York Times offers yet another immigration editorial and, of course, they're still wrong ("AinaLike clockwork, the New York Times offers yet another immigration editorial and, of course, they're still wrong ("Ain’t That America", link). Per them, not enacting comprehensive immigration "reform" is yet another in the long line of "greatest historical shames" perpetrated by...

New York Times editorial: pass anti-American DREAM Act - 09/24/07

From the 9/20 New York Times editorial called "Pass the Dream Act" (link): ...The idea is modest and smart, but modest and smart usually don’t get very far these days. The anti-immigrant forces that buried the Senate’s comprehensive reforms under a wave of faxes and phone calls are at it again over the revival of this small part of that much bigger bill. They are convinced that giving a break to...
