Jon Huntsman would still help illegal aliens take college educations from Americans (immigration, George Stephanopoulos) - 05/20/11
George Stephanopoulos interviewed potential presidential candidate Jon Huntsman yesterday; a transcript is here and the quotes are at . In the interview , Huntsman doesn't back down from his previous support for giving in-state tuition to illegal aliens. As discussed in greater depth on the DREAM Act page, that would allow those illegal aliens to take college educations away from Americans. Whether Huntsman supports the (national) DREAM Act or just state-only versions isn't known; in either case Huntsman would hurt Americans in order to help citizens of other countries. The pro-American...
Obama administration apologizes about Arizona immigration law... to China (Jon Huntsman, Michael Posner) - 05/16/10
It's rare that I link to or agree with Powerline blog, but there you go: link. A couple of days ago, Michael Posner of the State Department was asked the following question at a press conference about human rights talks that State is holding with China: QUESTION: Did the recently passed Arizona immigration law come up? And, if so, did they bring it up or did you bring it up? ASSISTANT SECRETARY POSNER: We brought it up early and often. It was mentioned in the first session, and as a troubling trend in our society and an indication that we have to deal with issues of discrimination or...
Utah House to vote on discounted college educations for illegal aliens; Carol Spackman Moss - 01/20/07
Utah state Rep. Glenn Donnelson has been trying for four years to repeal the Utah law that allows illegal aliens to take discounted college educations from U.S. citizens in his state. Now, the full House will vote on the repeal. One of those on the other side is Rep. Carol Spackman Moss who is, naturally, a Democrat. She says it shouldn't be such an issue because there are just "less than 200 kids" receiving these discounts. Of course, since there is always a greater demand for educational discounts than there is a supply, that represents 200 discounts that were taken away from U.S. citizens...
But, you already knew that. Further evidence comes from his pledge to oppose state Rep. Glenn Donnelson's attempt to repeal Utah's law giving illegal aliens discounted college educations: "I'm going to fight it," said Huntsman, who added that he would "very seriously consider vetoing" a repeal.
Illegal immigration supporting Representative Chris Cannon (R-UT) - as detailed here dozens of times - is a real piece of work. And, while it's seemed that way in the past, he might finally be on the way out. As described here, the only endorsements he's gotten are from George Bush, his wife, and (unfortunately) Rep. James Sensenbrenner. Utah governor Jon Huntsman and Senator Orrin Hatch (also pieces of work) have refused to endorse him, and he was forced to remove a link to the Minuteman Project from his website because it looked too much like an endorsement. And, the Salt Lake Tribune has...
Vicente Fox of Mexico is starting a whirlwind tour of the U.S. today which will conclude on Friday. The apparent goal of the tour is to help immigration "reform". However, as with the illegal alien marches, he will end up helping the American side.
From this: The Western Governors Association on Tuesday called on Congress to pass comprehensive immigration reform including a temporary guest worker program. The group that represents 18 western states passed the policy resolution unanimously while meeting at the National Governors Association annual conference... UPDATE: As you might expect, it's even worse than the blurb suggests. Utah's "Republican" governor Jon Huntsman is working with Arizona's Janet Napolitano on the "guest" worker scheme and immigration "reform" in general, and they have demands. For instance, they want to...
For a nice state filled with awesome scenery and generally nice folks, Utah has given us some really unsavory characters politics-wise. There's Orrin Hatch and his anti-American DREAM Act. And, of course, Rep. Chris Cannon. And, there's one other that was mentioned here before just once: "Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman Jr., Mexico, and illegal immigration".
It appears that Utah's new governor, Jon Huntsman Jr., might be on the wrong side as far as Mexico and illegal immigration are concerned. Although he's "defied" Bush's No Child Left Behind Act, he appears to be in lock-step with Our Leader on the U.S. sovereignty and massive illegal immigration issue. Today's "Fox says he's coming to Utah" describes a Huntsman visit to Mexico. The gov. is giddy over the prospect of a Vicente Fox visit, hoping that it's sooner rather than later. Apparently the gov. has a "Utah-Mexico Alliance for Prosperity" plan which will involve more direct flights as well...
