Over a million immigrants got U.S. jobs 2008-2010 (legal and illegal) - 01/20/11

Reuters reports (link): Over the past two years, as U.S. unemployment remained near double-digit levels and the economy shed jobs in the wake of the financial crisis, over a million foreign-born arrivals to America found work, many illegally. Those are among the findings of a review of U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics and Census Bureau data conducted exclusively for Reuters by researchers at the Center for Labor Market Studies at Northeastern University in Boston. This is something I've been highlighting for over two years; see the entries on the unemployment and Obama immigration pages. And,...

Good news: "Mexicans take swine flu lightly on U.S. border" - 04/27/09

From this: Many Mexicans crossing into the United States on Monday at one of the busiest crossings on the border shunned advice to wear surgical face mask to curb the spread of a deadly new flu. Most Mexican immigration officials at the Tijuana-San Diego crossing were using masks and surgical gloves, but Mexicans crossing by car and foot seemed unconcerned by the influenza scare and only a handful wore masks.

Tim Gaynor /Reuters tries, fails to find economic benefits of amnesty; MPI: little effect - 04/27/09

Tim Gaynor of Reuters offers "Could legalizing immigrants improve U.S. economy?" (link) Just because the only booster he could find to say that granting amnesty to illegal aliens would have a major financial benefit was Scott Smith, mayor of Mesa, Arizona doesn't mean that there aren't others out there; we know there are. However, whenever even Marc Rosenblum of the Migration Policy Institute says the following perhaps massive immigration activists might want to give up: "A lot of this conversation about economics has to do with the political optics... Immigrants are still a small proportion...

TransTexas Corridor still exists, just renamed "Innovative Connectivity in Texas" - 01/18/09

On January 6, the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) announced that the TransTexas Corridor had been scrapped. But - as even they admit - what they actually meant was that they were doing little more than scrapping the name, breaking the TTC out into individual projects with apparently individual proposals, and scaling back a few things.

1-800-CORRUPT-GOVERNMENT: Mexico launches help line for illegal aliens in Arizona - 12/16/08

David Schwartz of Reuters offers "Mexico opens help line for migrants to Arizona" (link), informing us that the Mexican government has created a new "help line" in Arizona for use by illegal aliens. For those new to this issue, a foreign government is enabling illegal activity inside the U.S., and they're doing it because all of their citizens that they've sent us send home money (remittances). The article was edited by Tim Gaynor and another Reuters hack, and shows the to-be-expected bias in favor of illegal activity.

Sarah Palin/Joe Biden vice presidential debate live coverage 10/2/08 - 10/02/08

Summary: Palin "won", in that she held her own, which was much better than the MSM and the "pundits" expected (and hoped). She didn't eviscerate Biden (even though she got in a subtle dig against Michelle Obama), but simply by being able to match him she hasn't doomed the McCain campaign and her folksy ways probably helped a good deal. She's also shown herself not to be the monster that the MSM has tried to portray her as. Commencing now.. Biden implies that madrassas aren't schools. I'm sure he knows, but... Palin had a "good conversation" with Henry Kissinger. Oh my. Was David Rockefeller...

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. You can see the ad here: "They want us to forget the insults we've put up with, the intolerance," the television ad's announcer says in Spanish as a picture of Rush Limbaugh appears onscreen with quotes of him saying, "Mexicans are stupid and unqualified" and "Shut your mouth or get out." "They made us feel marginalized in a country we love so much," the ad continues. "John McCain and his Republican friends have two faces. One that says lies just to get our...

[7/28/06 UPDATE: Reuters has corrected the article, see below.] Michelle Nichols of Reuters offers a report about yesterday's Minuteman rally and book launch entitled "Immigration protesters scuffle in New York".

Members...
