Soros spawn continuing Daddy’s work with ‘Bend the Arc’ PAC

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 13, 2015

Someone (can’t remember who) sent this description of a new PAC’s immigration “reform” initiative, and I am posting it because several of you have commented that George Soros is an old man and he can’t possibly continue the destruction of Europe, here (Orban says Soros behind the invasion), or America for much longer.   I said that he had sons who will fill his shoes and this is one of them.

Alex Soros

Meet the next generation: Alex Soros

Be sure to watch the 19 minute youtube video we posted last night to see Soros and other of his globalist pals’ handiwork. ***Update*** The video has already been taken down at Youtube!  (as someone predicted last night).  They don’t want you to see the truth! ***Update #2*** the video is back, some clever people made sure it didn’t disappear.

Who will be first to go when the Islamists are in full control of Europe, you tell me!

Learn about Bend the Arc’s mission (a Jewish partnership for justice) as it relates to immigration, here.

Now we have the opportunity to right decades of wrongs. Bend the Arc is targeting our efforts where we can make the most difference, as social justice advocates, and as Jews.


Bend the Arc is lobbying legislators in Washington and organizing locally across the country.

Then this is from an article at Politico back in April about Alex Soros’ new gig—-Bend the Arc:

The son of Democratic mega-donor George Soros is gearing up to play a more active role in the 2016 election with the launch of new political action committee focused on representing the views of Jewish Americans — beyond foreign policy.

Miliband Soros

Remember this 2013 post? That is Jonathan Soros on the left. In the center is David Miliband the CEO of one of our largest refugee resettlement contractors. And, George himself on the right who was receiving an award from Miliband.

Alex Soros, 29, who has steadily increased his political and philanthropic giving in recent years, has helped establish Bend the Arc PAC, the first ever national Jewish political action committee in America focused entirely on domestic issues. Bend the Arc, a non-profit, has an advocacy arm chaired by the younger Soros but has not previously had a political action committee.

Bend the Arc PAC will back progressive candidates by making direct contributions to their campaign committees. It will focus on issues such as income inequality, marriage equality, social justice and immigration reform.

“There’s an opportunity to launch something that actually speaks to what the American Jewish community cares the most about and to show the narrative of what the real American Jewish experience is,” Alex Soros said in an interview.


Soros said he hasn’t reached out yet to his father — a Hungarian Jew who became a billionaire after surviving the holocaust — about giving to Bend the Arc PAC.  [We all know how he ‘survived!’—ed]

Islamic supremacists must get a good laugh out of Bend the Arc funding Rep. Keith Ellison!  And, btw, Rep. David Cicilline is the Congressman who was promoting more Syrian refugee resettlement, here, for the Lutheran lobbyists late last month.

Bend the Arc PAC made its first round of endorsements on Tuesday. The group will be backing: Reps. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.), Alma Adams (D-N.C.), Ruben Gallego (D-Ariz.), Barbara Lee (D-Calif.), Mark Takano (D-Calif.), David Cicilline (D-R.I.), Rick Nolan (D-Minn), Xavier Becerra (D-Calif.), Mike Honda (D-Calif.), Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-N.J.), and Yvette Clarke (D-N.Y.)

Watch for them!

Obama Administration to Supreme Court on DAPA (amnesty for parents)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 11, 2015

We told you yesterday that a decision by the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals to stop a portion of Obama’s amnesty would actually be welcomed by the NO Borders lobby as they see it as an opportunity!

Remember the famous line:  “Never let a good crisis go to waste!”

Marielena Hincapie

“This is the moment we have been waiting for.”

If the Supreme Court accommodates the Leftist community organizers like Marielena Hincapié there will be a major battle on the steps of the Supreme Court early next summer just in time for the Presidential convention campaign kick-offs.

For those of you in the immigration restriction movement, better plan next summer’s vacation around a trip to Washington especially if Donald Trump is the Republican nominee (the No Borders agitators say they will bring out hundreds of thousands)

Here the New York Times spells it out:

WASHINGTON — President Obama will ask the Supreme Court to clear the way for his far-reaching overhaul of the nation’s immigration system, administration lawyers said Tuesday, setting up a battle in the nation’s highest court over whether nearly five million undocumented immigrants can legally live and work in the United States.

A year after the president asserted the power of his office to provide work permits and protection from deportation for those immigrants, his plan remains under assault by conservatives who have tied it up in legal limbo. On Monday, a federal appeals court said the president had exceeded his authority.

If the Supreme Court agrees to hear the president’s case during the current term, a ruling could come by next summer, just days before the two political parties hold their nominating conventions for the 2016 presidential campaign. A June decision could ensure a fierce debate on an issue that is critical to partisans on both sides.

“This is the moment that we, along with millions of families, have been waiting for,” said Marielena Hincapié, the executive director of the National Immigration Law Center. “We are more than ready to take this case to the Supreme Court.”

Continue reading here.

And, pray that the Supreme Court drags its feet and does not play politics by giving them the organizing opportunity they so greatly desire.

Just so you know, Hincapie’ bragged about her connections with the press at the Georgetown event we attended.  I’ll have to watch the tape, but I think she specifically said the NYT.

Washington DC gathering of Open Borders Activists/lawyers was revealing

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 30, 2015

Editor’s note: Having missed a day at the computer, especially one following the Republican debate on Wednesday night, I am woefully behind, so I have catching up to do, but this trip was well worth it.  One thing I want to make clear to faithful readers is that for most of my years writing this blog, I tended to focus on problems with LEGAL immigration programs and keep the topic somewhat separate from the battles over ILLEGAL immigration.  Partly that is due simply to the magnitude of the issues involved and I couldn’t follow the two tracks of controversy and do them both justice, but I have come to realize that the other side—those FOR mass migration— makes no such distinction.  They are all working together to flood America with migrants no matter how they get here.   I always thought some commonsense might prevail with the federal resettlement contractors who would be concerned with huge numbers of legally permitted migrant workers under Obama’s DACA or DAPA (or proposed via comprehensive immigration reform) competing with low-skilled refugees for few available jobs, but they aren‘t.

It is unrestrained MASS MIGRATION (and wide open borders) that they all want and they are all working together toward that end while those of us concerned with the numbers assiduously kept the two issues separate. NO more!

Don’t let the pundits and the politicians (and the likes of Fox News) make the distinction either—Legal immigration is pure as the driven snow and Illegal is bad—call them out whenever they do it.  Again, this is about MASS MIGRATION straight-up!  They are changing America by changing the people! The illegal immigrants and the refugees are simply pawns.  This is about power, not humanitarianism.

I don’t have the skill or patience to write a news article so below find bullets from my notes.  It is long, but wanted to get it on paper while it’s fresh in my mind.  It was an eye-opener on many levels.

A report from the 12th Annual Immigration Law and Policy Conference

October 29, 2015

Washington, DC

Sponsors:  Catholic Legal Immigration Network, Inc (CLINIC), Migration Policy Institute, and Georgetown Law

Click here for the agenda.

If anyone sees a media report (press was permitted) send it my way.  And, we will be looking for a video of the conference since it was obviously being taped.

The auditorium at Georgetown Law school was filled—I’m guessing maybe 200 people, maybe more.  A large segment of the audience was law students presumably hankering to become immigration lawyers.  When Dept. of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson spoke, some of his staff filled seats in the center of the auditorium.  I believe I saw Barbara Strack from USCIS (she recently testified at Senator Sessions’ hearing, here).  Some in the audience were identified with Catholic Charities.

Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said:

~Immigration is an emotional issue with lots of misinformation floating around, he used the word “hysteria” to describe the reaction of critics of what Obama is seeking to do.

~He said that in the last fiscal year, we had the lowest number of apprehensions on the border since 9/11 and that is a good thing.  He was trying to imply that fewer were coming across the border, but of course the flip side is that perhaps many more went through without being detained.

~He is very disappointed in the administration’s new program for Central American Minors to apply for refugee status in three central American countries because not many are signing up.  By the way, a recurring theme throughout the day was that they are seeking to broaden the legal definition of “refugee.”

~He lamented the fact that Obama’s plan to give amnesty to parents of children born here (DAPA) has been enjoined by the 5th Circuit. (DAPA figures again below in another panel discussion).

~The administration is working hard on 9 out of 10 executive orders because they want to be sure America has “no second class people” and that America “celebrates diversity.”

Only a few members of the audience asked questions and one was James Simpson who asked about the security screening for Syrian refugees.   I’m paraphrasing but Simpson said that since he (Johnson), James Clapper (Director of National Intelligence) and the Director of the FBI James Comey have all said that Syrian refugees cannot be properly screened, and at the same time Anne Richard (Asst. Sec. of State for PRM) was expediting the process, wasn’t the administration talking out of both sides of its mouth when agreeing to admit 10,000 Syrians this year?  In this case, don’t you think you should be more concerned, he asked.

~It was clear by what came out of Johnson’s mouth that he didn’t know what he was talking about.  He said the screening process has greatly improved since the Iraqis began being resettled.  Those of us who follow this closely know that the Iraqi situation is different, there are some records on the Iraqis (Comey et al have said that), but what the audience also didn’t know is that the “improvement” came as a result of the discovery of Iraqi terrorists getting into the US through the refugee program.  The screening process was put on hold a few years ago and thousands of refugees were rescreened.  But, that still doesn’t explain how those charged with security in the Obama administration are sending out warning signals while the US State Department and the UN are getting them in here as fast as they can.

~He said he thought 10,000 was a good number.

~He went on about asylum seekers at the border. (I wonder is their a strategy to put out just a bunch of words so as not to answer the question?). And, he wrapped up with a really important assurance to us all (Not!) and that is that the Syrians are being “welcomed” to America by a Syrian American community already here—as if that had anything at all to do with the security question!

If it weren’t for Simpson’s question, this audience would have no idea that one of the most pressing issues (making people “hysterical” to use Secretary Johnson’s own word) going on right now with refugee resettlement was the one about Syrian Muslims being admitted to the US without thorough screening.

Immigration and the Latino Vote

Matt Barreto

Dr. Matt Barreto said opposition to amnesty comes from people who ‘fear those who don’t look like them.’

The first session after Johnson’s departure was all about the 2016 Presidential election with some discussion about the House leadership change and what that would mean for the passage of ‘Comprehensive Immigration Reform.’

The moderator of the session was Doris Meissner.  Session participants were Matt Barreto (a pollster), Fawn Johnson (a reporter) and Cesar Gonzalez (Chief of Staff for Florida Republican Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart).  This session, to prime the audience for 2016, was worth the price of admission!

***Update*** Donald Trump gives them more reason to worry, here.

~The “Trump phenomenon” has them obviously shaken and they are trying to figure out how to cope with it.  The phrase “Trump phenomenon” was practically the first words out of Ms. Meissner’s mouth when she opened the session. They expected immigration to be an important issues in 2016, but with a different tone to the discussion, not Trump’s outright “anti-immigrant tone.” The whole presentation that followed was based on the understanding that this audience was all pro-Democrat/pro-Hillary.

~Barreto showed a map of the states in which they have to mobilize the Latino vote:  New Hampshire, Wisconsin, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Nevada, Colorado, Virginia, North Carolina, New Mexico, Florida, and Iowa.

~Ohio and Virginia are razor thin, he said.

~At one point in the panel’s discussion of the opposition to “immigration reform,” the panelists agreed that it was the hardcore Tea Party that was blocking everything they wanted to do because those people, which at one point they said represented about the “extremely organized” 12% of the Republican base (didn’t write down where they got the 12%) were active at the local level, voted in primaries and called Members of Congress.  (Just a reminder, that some of the Tea Parties in the country are not involved in the immigration fight especially those getting any funding from the Koch brothers who are advocates of more immigration—cheap labor).   Not to take anything away from the Tea Party, but the grassroots activists concerned with MASS migration come from a much broader spectrum of American society than the Tea Party.

~I suspect Dr. Barreto finds it easier to blame the Tea Party and those he said “don’t want to give money to people who don’t look like them,” then to have to admit they really don’t know how deep and wide the opposition is to changing America by changing the people.

~The news that came loud and clear was that it does matter that you get involved in the immigration battle—that you do participate in primary elections, call and write Congress as Cesar Gonzalez revealed during his remarks.  Gonzalez said that his boss, as one of the ‘Gang of Eight’ in the House, was pounded by opposition from his district in Miami—a district largely made up of immigrants!

At another point in the back and forth discussion, Barreto showed numbers comparing a Hillary v. Rubio match-up and showed that even Rubio (the R’s best shot with Latino voters) would get less of the Latino vote than even Romney got. Hillary, who has been out front supporting DACA and DAPA would gobble up the Latino voters.  He said that Rubio “can’t resuscitate his position with Latino voters.”   So, what that says to me is that Trump, or whoever gets the nomination, must work really hard to get out white and black voters who see the migration tide taking their jobs.  (more below on black voters)

cesar Gonzalez

Cesar Gonzalez, Chief of staff for FL Rep. Diaz-Balart, showed how important staff on the Hill can be by playing a key roll in writing an immigration “reform” bill for the House ‘Gang of Eight’ and has hopes to be able to find a “window” to bring it out of his desk drawer.

Cesar Gonzalez, who we were told did not represent his boss (Rep. Diaz-Belart) when participating in this conference was very revealing.  And, btw, at some point reporter Fawn Johnson said that due to the “Trump phenomenon” she predicted nothing would get done in Congress this fall on immigration reform.  She said that the House Republicans do not want to talk about immigration (which is why we need to keep hounding them and the Republican Presidential candidates).

~Gonzalez, a staffer, is clearly one of the key players in Congress working on ‘Comprehensive Immigration Reform’ here.  Although I haven’t watched it yet, he was (he says he was) an important source for the PBS documentary that Julia Hahn so ably reported on here at Breitbart. Notice in the NBC Latino article here, the discussion about creation of a movement called “Bibles, badges and business” that Gonzalez says was helping drive the Republicans toward immigration reform, we wrote about that in 2013, here (Grover Norquist project!).

~Gonzalez told the audience that they came very close to “reform” legislation from the Gang of Eight in the House.  However, two things happened that killed their chances.  One was Obama’s DACA and DAPA executive orders that caused Republicans to not trust this administration and the other was the shocking primary defeat of one of their chief supporters, Rep. Eric Cantor, by an out-and-out immigration control advocate, Dave Brat in Virginia.

~See here when the House ‘Gang of Eight’ became the gang of five.  Diaz-Belart was the only R left on the draft bill which Gonzalez says is “locked in his desk” in hopes a window will open in the future for him to whip it out.

~This part of what Gonzalez said really steamed me!  He says that those behind the ‘Gang of Eight’ in the House “polled their bill” in June 2014.  He said they used something called “Wordsmith” to find just the right words to best manipulate other Republican members of Congress and the Republican voting public into supporting ‘immigration reform.’  LOL! one word he said they learned NOT to use is “comprehensive” so that has been dropped from their manipulative strategy to “sell the bill.”  Think about it!  They must have used taxpayer dollars to get advice on how to snooker you!  Or, did some big business lobbying group pay for it?

~There was also a discussion about getting control of Texas by using the Hispanic vote.  They said that Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-SC), who they bragged held town hall meetings in Spanish, wanted “comprehensive immigration reform” to get the unregistered Hispanics to ultimately vote for Republicans.

There was much much more, we will be waiting for the video of the conference to be made available.

Then questions were invited from the audience.  A woman identifying herself as being with a Catholic group of some sort said she had a workman at her home recently, a black workman, who told her he and his friends are voting for Trump.  He told her they talk about it almost every day as they are concerned about the Hispanics here illegally who are taking their jobs and getting away with breaking the law.  (A murmur rippled through the audience at this comment indicating, I think, a fear that deep down they know that these black working class men are right!).

And then, here comes James Simpson again to the microphone.  I’m paraphrasing because I didn’t write down what he asked verbatim.  It went something like this:  First, I want to say that Mr. Baretto expressed a subtle bigotry by smearing anyone who questions their agenda as people who are “afraid of people who don’t look like us.”   I have black friends, Simpson said emphatically, who are indeed angry because they are losing their jobs to illegal Hispanic workers.  Here you are at this prestigious law school—Georgetown—advocating the undermining of the rule of law.  That (the rule of law) is our greatest concern. What sort of message are you sending to the students here?

Baretto jumped in to say that he sees no evidence of black voters abandoning the Democrat Party.   And Gonzalez said something that made no sense as the moderator quickly cut off the discussion.

Whew!  I am running out of steam and still have more to go!

Obama’s Executive Amnesties…..

I’ll keep it short on the next panel which was an update for the audience on Obama’s Executive orders—most specifically the DAPA lawsuit has them befuddled.  However, they expect it to go to the Supreme Court and they want that to happen prior to the 2016 Presidential election so that they can organize a massive grassroots campaign where they would bring in thousands (hundreds of thousands!) of illegal aliens to demonstrate at the Supreme Court.


Marielena Hincapie said they are gearing up for a massive demonstration when the DAPA case gets to the Supreme Court hopefully in advance of the 2016 Presidential election.

Marielena Hincapie, the Executive Director of the National Immigration Law Center was crowing about how they plan to make it a big action.   She related a little sob story about a 13 year old girl writing to her about how she didn’t want her Daddy arrested by the ICE police (sniff! sniff!).

And, then here comes James Simpson to the microphone again!  This time moderator Muzaffar Chishti purposely did not let Simpson ask a question.  Jim told me afterward he was going to ask if Ms. Hincapie ever got letters from any of the thousands of families who had a loved one murdered by an illegal alien.

By the way, last weekend I had the opportunity to hear from The Remembrance Project.  I urge all of you to visit their website here and read about those murdered by illegal aliens in America.  Maybe it could be a project of The Remembrance Project to send their stories to Ms. Hincapie so she might have some balance to the stories she relates.

UN High Commissioner for Refugees (Antonio Guterres) was the noontime speaker.

And, now when I get to the high point of the day for me, I am definitely running out of steam.  I will be brief, hang in there.

~Antonio Guterres has been the UNHCR for the last 10 years and is about to retire.

~He spoke mostly about Climate refugees and finding a new category of legal refugee in which to place them because they do not fit under the 1951 Convention.

~He wants the US to play a major role in the Nansen Initiative which deals with cross border migrations due to everything under the sun!

~Migration is increasing (duh!) and the distinction is being blurred between migrants and refugees.  I maintain that this is on purpose. The No Borders movement wants everyone to be a refugee and so the word is being used (on purpose) to describe people on the move for whatever reason.  He wants more people to have “access to a refugee definition.”

~Wants the 1951 Convention expanded to include those running from crime.  Presently a “refugee” is required to prove they are persecuted.

~He scoffed and joked (and the audience laughed along with him) when he said that terrorists wouldn’t go to all the trouble to use the refugee pipeline to infiltrate the West.

~He said Canada has given them a little problem because the new government wants 25,000 Syrians ASAP and he isn’t sure that the UNHCR can move fast enough to supply that number.

~In answer to a question, he said that what the US does is important to encourage other countries to do more.

~I believe he said, in answer to another question, that Europe wouldn’t have the huge migrant crisis it has now if they would just have a legal system for all to come!

Then here comes James Simpson to the microphone yet again….

LOL!  One could almost feel the audience groaning!

Simpson asked (and again I am paraphrasing) why it is that only 3% of the Syrians chosen for America so far are persecuted Christians and the vast majority are Muslims?  (BTW, no where in Guterres prepared talk did he mention Islamic extremists as being behind the huge migrant crisis going on in most of the world!).

Guterres answered with this shocking bit of news: Well, the Christians aren’t being persecuted by their government (the Assad regime) and so aren’t in the same great need for protection as the Muslims who are fleeing Assad are now. What! So one can only be a legitimate “refugee” when one’s government is doing the persecuting?  Who ever said that?  I’m sure that those fearing they will be beheaded by ISIS for being a Christian or an apostate aren’t making any fine distinctions about persecution by a national government vs. ISIS as they try to escape Syria.

Simpson also asked why the Gulf states aren’t being pressured into resettling refugees (Guterres obviously loves refugee resettlement as he told the audience several times).   UNHCR Guterres answered that the Gulf states helped monetarily (they donate to the UNHCR!) but that they would like them to take some refugees.  He then defended Saudi Arabia by saying that 600,000 Syrian workers have been permitted to stay in S.A. while the civil war continues in their homeland.  But, what the audience doesn’t understand is that the Syrians will never be permitted to become VOTING CITIZENS OF S.A. as they will when resettled to Canada, the US, Australia and most European countries where they will change the government as their numbers increase.

Congratulations to all who made it through this account of my excellent adventure to Georgetown Law yesterday.

Again, when we have a link to the video of the conference, we will let you know!

Paul Ryan speakership campaign reveals traitors in our midst (South Carolina and Idaho pay attention)

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 27, 2015

Julia Hahn at Breitbart has been doing great work in exposing the players (traitors!) behind the House Speaker campaign of Rep. Paul Ryan.

Update:  Paul Ryan victory party invitations are out!  See here.  (Hat tip: Cathy), and Diana West reports on the role played by the Heritage Foundation (very troubling!), here. (I’ve been done with them for awhile anyway!)

The House “Freedom Caucus” (listed below) is not a group friendly to Americans looking to control immigration or to American workers.

By the way, for me, immigration is the only issue that matters.  We will live or die depending on how many immigrants we admit and from where they come.  Once they change the demographic make-up of America, no other issue you care about will matter.

For all of you fighting to slow refugee resettlement in South Carolina and Idaho, two members of Congress (dressed in Tea Party clothes***) in your states are working against you.


Roy Beck of NumbersUSA says of Rep. Mick Mulvaney of SC that “open borders is in his ideological DNA.”  “Hispandering poodle,” says VDARE.

While I have written disdainfully of Rep. Trey Gowdy for dragging his feet (as Chairman of the House Subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security) on holding hearings on the Refugee Admissions Program, it turns out that fellow South Carolina Rep. Mick Mulvaney has been working overtime on amnesty for illegal aliens and no doubt is helping push refugees into the state (likely cheered on by SC Senator Lindsey Graham who recently made it clear that he wants Syrian Muslims admitted to the US in large numbers).

And, no wonder Republican Governor Nikki Halley is toeing the line and “welcoming” refugees to SC.  The state’s leading Republicans are working to promote MORE immigration to America.  She is obviously too weak to buck them (if she wanted to!).

Let me be clear, while many of you reading this blog have made a distinction between LEGAL immigration and ILLEGAL, that is—‘illegal is bad’ and ‘legal is o.k. sometimes’—the other side is making no such distinction.

This is about mass migration no matter how they get here for the no borders agitators, for Obama, for the Democrat party looking for more votes, and for the big donor interests of the Republican Party (give us cheap labor!).

Here is Julia Hahn on Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-SC) and Raul Labrador (R-ID).  I’ve snipped just a bit of her investigative report, please read it all!  ***Update*** Reader Robin suggests you watch the whole PBS video referenced by clicking here.

In recent days, prominent conservatives and grassroots activists have slammed the House Freedom Caucus for what they described as a “betrayal” of the Republican electorate. As Rush Limbaugh said after Ryan issued his list of demands to House lawmakers:

You would not think that the Freedom Caucus, the conservatives in the House, the Tea Party caucus, whatever you want to call them, no way would they go along with this. No way under the sun would they go along with this. … But it looks like enough of them will. … This is how we get. … I don’t want to say “played,” folks, but I’m telling you: the script is written offsite, backstage. We don’t see that. We see everybody playing their part, including the Freedom Caucus members.

However, what conservative activists describe as a “betrayal” is, for several key members of the House Freedom Caucus, the fulfillment of their long-time desire to implement amnesty and alter the demographics of their districts through expanded immigration. While the GOP electorate ejected Eric Cantor in large measure due to his support for Marco Rubio’s amnesty drive—followed by Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) and current Whip Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA)—the PBS documentary reveals that one of the founding members of the House Freedom Caucus, Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-SC), embraces an even more progressive immigration agenda than Cantor himself.

The documentary, which aired on October 20, casts Mulvaney at the center of the La Raza-backed 2013 and 2014 immigration push, alongside Paul Ryan and Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL).


Mulvaney told CNN that he believes his colleagues should throw their support behind Ryan’s Speakership and declared, “The bottom line is if he wants to be Speaker, he has the votes as of tonight.” With those words, Mulvaney all but ensured that the Speakership would go to the man whom NumbersUSA President Roy Beck described as “terrifying” and “the heart and soul of crony capitalism”:

He has spent his entire adulthood ideologically connected to the open borders crowd. Open Borders is in his ideological DNA. That’s the terrifying thing. He’s an ideologue and his spent his whole life working for ideologues. Open borders seeps out of every pore of his being.

Idaho resistance pay attention!

Another pro-amnesty House Freedom Caucus Member, Rep. Raul Labrador (R-ID), echoed Mulvaney’s declaration that the Speakership was now a lock for Ryan: “We can support him and we want him to be successful,” Labrador said. Labrador was a member of the House’s Gang of Eight effort to pass amnesty until public pressure forced him to drop out of the group. As Breitbart News has previously reported, immigration experts have described Labrador as equally enthusiastic about expanding immigration as is Kevin McCarthy or Eric Cantor.

Continue reading here.

We should have all been paying attention to Patrick Cleburne writing at VDARE in 2014:  ‘Treason Lobby Flaunts Control Of South Carolina GOP Via Hispandering Poodle Rep Mulvaney (SC-5)’ (hat tip: Richard at Blue Ridge Forum). By the way, Mulvaney’s district is right next door to Spartanburg and Trey Gowdy’s district.

Conservative South Carolina voters need to go to the ballet box and spare the nation those ‘Republicans’ you are sending to Congress (likely with the blessing of Senator Lindsey Graham).

***Here are the other members of the so-called “Freedom Caucus.”  Most, as we learn from Hahn, are Libertarians and not true conservatives or Tea Partiers for that matter.   Libertarians have long been advocates for more immigration to America.

My recommendation is, if you see your member on this list—tell them to get the h*** out of this caucus!  List from wikipedia, here.

Amnesty advocate Rep. Paul Ryan poised to be next Speaker of the House, if you don’t take action

Posted by Ann Corcoran on October 23, 2015

Ryan and Guiterez

Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill. and Ryan in a story about Gutierrez and the donor class having an “orgasm” over Ryan as likely Speaker.

Update #2:  Reader Kay reports on her attempts to reach Jim Jordan:

It took me 5 tries calling to finally get in touch with Chairman Jordan’s office. I was hung up on 3 times, got a person who did not speak English well on my 4th try…she hung up too, and on my 5th try, I got a young man in Mr. Jordan’s office who seemed pleasant. The first words out of my mouth is that I had a citizen concern for Mr. Jordan as Freedom Caucus Chair and to please not hang up on me, as I had been shut out 4 times already. The young man at least acted like he was listening and took down information and my phone number. I reiterated to him that people in my area, Cincinnati, Ohio, did NOT want Paul Ryan as Speaker.

Update:  Andy Harris sells out to RINOs, here.  If you see more news on Freedom Caucus members today, let me know.

NumbersUSA has launched a call-in campaign to try to stop this moving train.

Roy Beck on Rep. Paul Ryan, click here.

Here is what Roy Beck said in an e-mail to concerned Americans:

I’m convinced that the only thing that will keep the most powerful and committed Republican House amnesty leader out of the chair of the Speaker of the House is an unrelenting barrage of phone calls to Republican Representatives from our NumbersUSA network today (yesterday) and Friday.

My description of Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) is not based just on what I know but on what PBS proved last night with its premier airing of a two-hour documentary, IMMIGRATION BATTLE. It provided detail after detail of Ryan’s back-room efforts to get a version of the Senate Gang of 8 amnesty through the House over the last two years.

Beck wants you to call all of your Republican members, but here is the list of Members of the Freedom Caucus so I’m urging you to focus on them as a first priority (from wikipedia).   By the way, we hear that the Koch brothers provide some funding for the Freedom Caucus—not a good sign since the funders of RINO Presidential candidates have been visibly absent from the immigration issue leading most to conclude that they too are pro-open borders in order to supply cheap labor for industry.

Trump jumps to A- grade on NumbersUSA Presidential candidate score card

Puts a discussion of LEGAL immigration on the table with his Immigration white paper.

Here is Roy Beck writing at NumbersUSA earlier this week:

The weight of Donald Trump’s front-runner status and his detailed plan released over the weekend tipped the balance among the Republicans’ 2016 Presidential field so that the dominant position now is that immigration policy is a jobs and wage issue.

And he joins several candidates in raising the question in one way or another of whether LEGAL immigration ought to be reduced.

Several candidates had already been advancing the idea in recent months that federal policies on LEGAL immigration are not serving the interests of the American worker.

Continue reading here.

And, go here, to see the latest scores.   Rick Santorum still has a solid A, Trump A-.  The next closest candidate is Scott Walker with a B,  and then all of the other candidates at this time have lower scores. Trump earlier had a C score.

I say it is about time that LEGAL immigration numbers are scrutinized and we thank Trump for forcing the discussion when a whole bunch of Presidential candidates haven’t had the guts to address immigration at all, let alone put their ideas in writing.

Trump on refugees

Here (below) is what Trump says in his brief mention of the Refugee Admissions Program of the UN/US State Department. Find the abuses in the program and the money saved should be used for America’s children:

Refugee program for American children. Increase standards for the admission of refugees and asylum-seekers to crack down on abuses. Use the monies saved on expensive refugee programs to help place American children without parents in safer homes and communities, and to improve community safety in high crime neighborhoods in the United States.

It is a good first step. It is up to all of you to impress upon your elected officials (at all levels) and ultimately the mainstream media that this program has gone seriously and irreparably awry.  We have more work to do.  They don’t know yet what you know.

Trump working with Sen. Jeff Sessions on immigration platform

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 15, 2015

Update: Here is Breitbart calling this new development a “game changer.”

Signaling that he couldn’t be more serious about getting immigration under control, Presidential candidate Donald Trump has sought out the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest, Senator Jeff Sessions, to help craft his immigration policy platform.

Readers know that if I could have waved a magic wand and chosen a Presidential candidate it would be the highly respected and tireless champion for the “national interest,” Senator Sessions, so this is the next best thing!  Other Presidential candidates should be beating a path to Senator Sessions’ door but I doubt they are!

From the Washington Post (hat tip: Richard at Blue Ridge Forum).  Emphasis below is mine:

Trump at border in July

Trump in Laredo, TX visiting the US border in mid-July.

Donald Trump will unveil a series of position papers in early September, he said in an interview Friday, beginning with a plan to address immigration policy that was crafted with the counsel of Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), a favorite of conservative activists and an outspoken border hawk. That document will be followed soon after by his proposal for revamping the U.S. tax code.

“My immigration paper, my tax paper — they’re pretty much done. But I don’t want to do them in August. I’ll wait until September, when everyone is back, in all fairness,” Trump told The Washington Post. “We’ll release a number of them. We’ll start with immigration and then we’ll do tax. Those will be the first two.”


Trump’s consultation with Sessions, which came in a mid-July phone call, is the latest sign that the celebrity billionaire will continue to take a hard-line stance on immigration, which has rallied many conservatives this summer to his campaign.

Sessions, who is closely aligned with the tea-party wing of the GOP and is the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee’s subcommittee on immigration, has argued that lowering legal immigration levels will improve employment prospects for low-wage U.S. workers. He also for years led efforts to increase fencing and barriers along the U.S.-Mexico border.

“I like him,” Trump said of Sessions. “Tough guy. I like that. We have a similar thought process.”

More here.

See all of our previous posts on Senator Sessions here.  Sessions fought valiantly to defeat the Gang of Eight bill in the Senate that included two of the other GOP candidates as sponsors of the bill—Senators Marco Rubio and Lindsey Graham.  Just a reminder, here is the NYT crowing about Rubio when the so-called Comprehensive Immigration Reform bill passed the Senate by a vote of 68-32 in June 2013.

See Senator Sessions calling out the meatpacking lobby, as one of many business interests looking for cheap immigrant labor, here when the bill passed. As you know, it never got traction in the House.  Longtime readers know that BIG MEAT is a driving force behind the refugee resettlement program and many of those companies work closely with the federal resettlement contractors (aka Volags).

Daniel Horowitz: Carly is in no position to punch Hillary on immigration issue!

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 13, 2015

told you the other day, I’m a one issue voter.  If we don’t get immigration (how many and who we allow to become permanent residents) slowed (stopped!) nothing else matters.

Carly Fiorina happy to support Dream Act and Gang of Eight!

So, just thought you should see what Daniel Horowitz writing at Conservative Review yesterday tells us about Carly Fiorina on the issue of immigration (among many other issues).  Here is the immigration portion, but please go read the rest of his good analysis.

By the way, it sure looks and sounds like Fox News is doing a Carly coronation these days!  I’m thinking that Rupert Murdoch would love to see a Rubio/Fiorina ticket because they could be controlled and move his open-borders agenda forward!

From Conservative Review:

In 2010, while running for Senate in California against Democratic Senator Barbara Boxer, Carly affirmed her support for the DREAM Act amnesty, noting “I would support the DREAM Act because I do not believe that we can punish children who through no fault of their own are here trying to live the American dream.” The DREAM Act has served as the foundation for Obama’s cycle of amnesty and Fiorina’s defense is the heart and soul of the arguments Hillary can and will use during the general election. Don’t we need a candidate who will be able to throw what is perhaps our biggest punch with full force?

Carly also opposed fixing the birthright citizenship loophole for illegal aliens and referred to it as an “emotional distraction.” She also accused some opponents of amnesty as taking on a racist tone. Again, that is exactly what Hillary says. How can she throw the immigration punch with such vulnerabilities?

In February 2013, when the Gang of 8 released the worst comprehensive amnesty bill of our time, Carly was one of its biggest cheerleaders on the Sunday shows. Appearing on Meet the Press, she said “I applaud and salute the Gang of Eight`s proposal. Let`s move forward and vote on that.” She appeared on This Week on February 3 praising the bill as a “carefully crafted” balance and a “good first step,” while expressing hope that the Democrats would not oppose it. This bill was the embodiment of what is wrong with the very political class she now inveighs against in her well-honed stump speech. Yet, when people like Cruz and Sessions were fighting to stop this bill, which emboldened Obama to expand his executive amnesty and create a new wave of illegal immigration, Carly was cheering the armpit of the political class. This is unbelievable. Hillary can eat her alive.

Read it all.

On the Gang of Eight bill, just remember it would have greatly expanded the role of the federal refugee resettlement contractors and consequently they all lobbied heavily for it.

24-country poll: Majority say immigration has had negative impact on their country

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 7, 2015

US Presidential candidates!  Pay attention!


Toronto, Canada – A new Ipsos global poll finds that fully half (50%) of those citizens surveyed in 24 countries say there are too many immigrants in their country—and almost as many (46%) agree that immigration is causing their country to change in ways they don’t like.

Globe with immigrants

Like it or not (mostly NOT!), here they come!

Against a backdrop where 81% of citizens indicate that over the last five years migrants have increased in their country (and just 30% say immigrants make their country a more interesting place to live) only one in five (21%) citizens surveyed say immigration has had a positive impact on their country; only three in 10 (28%) say immigration has been good for their economy.

Further, half (50%) say immigration has placed too much pressure on public services in their country.

And almost half (45%) of global respondents believe immigrants have made it more difficult for their own people to get jobs in their country (and just 41% say priority should be given to immigrants with higher education and qualifications to fill shortages in professions.)

Here are the averages for each of the questions and the percentage of Americans feeling the same way (go have a look at your country!):


81% of citizens indicate that over the last five years migrants have increased in their country…

US 69%

Half (50%) say there are too many immigrants in their country…

US 49% (More education needed as not enough Americans know how high the numbers are!)

And almost as many (46%) agree that immigration is causing their country to change in ways they don’t like…

US 43% (This number doesn’t jive with the following areas in the survey.  They must have asked it first!)

Only one in five (21%) say immigration has had a positive impact…

US 25%  (So this means 75% of US respondents must be saying immigration has a negative impact!)

Only three in 10 (28%) say immigration has been good for the economy of their country…

US 30%    (Tell Grover Norquist and the Koch Brothers!)

And half (50%) say immigration has placed too much pressure on public services in their country…

US 58%

Almost half (45%) say immigrants in their country have made it more difficult for their own people to get jobs…

US 48%

Four in 10 (41%) believe priority should be given to immigrants with higher education and qualifications to fill professions shortages…

US 35%

Only three in 10 (30%) say immigrants make their country a more interesting place to live…

US 41%

Go here for lots more numbers!  Fascinating stuff!

The politicians in places like Italy, France, Germany and Belgium better darn well pay attention!  And, LOL! I laughed to see that the Saudis, the Chinese and the Japanese weren’t particularly stressed by immigration—-of course not!  They hardly take in any immigrants!

Frank Sharry of ‘America’s Voice’ blasts Trump, but where is the attack on Bernie?

Posted by Ann Corcoran on August 5, 2015

Know the opposition!


Frank Sharry. Learn more about him here:

America’s Voice is one more of those well-funded No Borders organizations that promotes “comprehensive immigration reform.”

They loved the bill the Gang of Eight (supported by Graham, McCain and Rubio) got through the Senate two years ago, a bill which would have expanded the refugee program and given more money to the nine federal contractors to do the work of getting the newly amnestied their “services” (aka welfare).  Incidentally the contractors lobbied for the Gang of Eight bill and probably used your tax dollars to do it!

Here Frank Sharry’s organization blasts Trump in an e-mail to their supporters and tells them they want a “comprehensive” bill just like last time.  (hat tip: Jim)  By the way, they want a “comprehensive” bill so as to hide all the giveaway goodies in over a thousand pages of unreadable gobbledegook!

America’s Voice:

Have you heard about Donald Trump’s latest attack on immigrant families?

Last week, during an interview with CNN, Donald Trump stated that his plan for the 11 million undocumented immigrants would be to “find them, and get them out.” When pressed on this point, Trump just reiterated that he would get immigrants “out” of the United States.

This is just the latest attack on our communities from Donald Trump and his supporters. Meanwhile, anti-immigrant extremists in Congress are looking to capitalize on the momentum generated by Donald Trump by introducing enforcement-only legislation that scapegoats immigrant communities.

Click here ( and tell our allies in Congress to stand against Donald Trump and anti-immigrant extremists.

You and I are familiar with the grotesque comments that Donald Trump made about immigrants living in the United States. As we continue to approach the first Republican Presidential debate, there are no indications that Donald Trump will tone down his anti-immigrant rhetoric.

If Republicans want to get serious about reforming our broken immigration system, they need to publicly denounce Trump’s hateful comments towards immigrants, and propose solutions to achieve bipartisan comprehensive immigration reform — just like the bill passed by Senate Republicans and Democrats back in 2013.

Congress should be seeking to enact comprehensive immigration reform, not considering policies that further increase deportation.

It is time for our allies in Congress to stand against Donald Trump and his enforcement-only inspired policies. Now is not the time to give Donald Trump and his supporters in Congress a free pass to attack immigrant communities.

We need our allies in Congress to stand against anti-immigrant legislation! Click here to ask they oppose all Trump-style, enforcement-only policies.

Thank you for your support,
Gabe Ortiz
America’s Voice

But what about Bernie?

Did you see what Bernie Sanders said recently about open borders—-it would make America poorer to flood the country with low-skilled/low-wage labor!

This is Byron York writing at the Washington Examiner a few days ago (if you missed it!).

As a socialist moving up in the Democratic presidential polls, Bernie Sanders raises the expectations of many on the Left. Some assume Sanders believes what they believe and are disappointed if they discover he does not. In a newly-published interview, Vox founder Ezra Klein, an advocate of an open-borders immigration policy, asked a question virtually inviting Sanders to agree with Klein about allowing any and all would-be immigrants to come to the United States. Sanders most emphatically did not go along:

Klein: You said being a democratic socialist means a more international view. I think if you take global poverty that seriously, it leads you to conclusions that in the US are considered out of political bounds. Things like sharply raising the level of immigration we permit, even up to a level of open borders. About sharply increasing …

Sanders: Open borders? No, that’s a Koch brothers proposal.

Klein: Really?

Sanders: Of course. That’s a right-wing proposal, which says essentially there is no United States …

Klein: But … it would make a lot of global poor richer, wouldn’t it?

Sanders: It would make everybody in America poorer — you’re doing away with the concept of a nation state, and I don’t think there’s any country in the world that believes in that.


What right-wing people in this country would love is an open-border policy. Bring in all kinds of people, work for $2 or $3 an hour, that would be great for them.

Right on Bernie!  Cheap immigrant labor—just what we have been saying all along!   And, what is so maddening to me is that the Catholics, Lutherans and Evangelicals are all-in to help bring in cheap labor to compete with low income and minority Americans!

We will be waiting to see if America’s Voice blasts Bernie (publicly).
