Congress Votes To Bar Entry To Iran's U.N. Ambassador

Oops. Reference in first sentence was to BAD policy.

Congress Votes To Bar Entry To Iran's U.N. Ambassador

Very well-stated, Duckie!

Obama should ignore this pettiness, even if pettiness and policy are among his own fortes.

Republicans engage in this as a distraction from the fact that most of them, including all current Republican presidential candidates, are afraid to confront Obama on his monarchical implementation of massive de facto amnesties for illegal aliens, and his attempts to increase legal immigration and double the rate of U.S. population growth

Romney had the cojones to advocate attrition by enforcement as the most highly principled and effective way to deal with illegal immigration. But most members of his party suffer badly from el fenomeno microcojonico and have abandoned principle in this area.

Microcojones are sufficient to go after someone who as a kid 30+ years ago put on a bandanna and went out and raised hell with his buddies, egged on by a bunch of old guys in turbans. But do anything useful in Congress? Never.

What a coward Cruz is!

FBI: State Sen. Leland Yee Arrested During Raids

California became a banana republic long ago, and the rest of the country is following. The law-breaking by these guys is nothing compared to what Obama has done and will continue to do. Need a 4 am raid on the White House by military base commanders in the DC area. Tomorrow.

Activist Deportee Elvira Arellano Released In San Diego

Come now, MissAccomp, do you really think the Chamber of Commerce has any interest other than making their own deep pockets deeper? They see mass amnesties and mass immigration as a source of more customers, more consumers, and more profits, most of which will go to the managerial elites.

If you would like a deeper understanding of this and related issues go the website of Scientists and Environmentalists for Population Stabilization (http://www.populationstabilization.org ) and read the section titled "Points for Reflection."

Activist Deportee Elvira Arellano Released In San Diego

This person is not a "heroine" even by the low standards of KPBS's "hero of the month awards."

She's a lawbreaker pure and simple intent on encouraging others to break the law. Basically she is asking for permanent residency for herself and her family precisely because she did break the law and did so multiple times.

The US has benefitted tremendously from many of the legal immigrants who have come here. But Arellano is the very last sort of person we would want to offer permanent residency to and a very unlikely person to contribute positively to U.S. society.

Instead of putting out sob story after sob story about illegal aliens and the religiosity of their supporters, why don't KPBS journalists ever dig into anything substantive on the immigration?

How about an article about how many tens of millions of people would be quickly added to the US population by an immigration expansion bill like S.744? Plenty of data out there, and you can be sure the Union-Tribune will keep it hidden from sight.

There's a hot congressional race developing in the 52d district in North County between Carl DeMaio, Scott Peters and Kirk Jorgensen. How about a KPBS journalist asking each of them what their position is on the elimination of birthright citizenship? Good luck on getting straight answers!

Abuse of the system by people like Arrellano will continue forever until that old judicial perversion of the 14th amendment is taken care of. And exactly which branch of the famous Arrellano family does this woman come from anyways?

As Miramar Landfill Fills Up, San Diego City Council To Consider Zero Waste Initiative

Population is the fundamental issue, tho "zero waste" initiatives are worth attempting.

With 200,000 illegal aliens in San Diego County (producing U.S. "citizens") and with "reform" legislation on the table that wouldl double immigration rates, and with the Congressional Budget Office estimating that the Senate bill would only reduce illegal immigration by 25%, the future is sealed in a bad way unless more citizens and congressmen get educated on the fundamentals.

You can be sure that neither KPBS or the UT will assist that education as both entities are solidly committed to more mass immigration and letting San Diego become another LA basin.

US Border Patrol Rejects Curb On Use Of Deadly Force

It is lamentable that persons being hurt or killed at the border. But whether they be rocked or shot BP agents, rock throwers, or illegal aliens dying in the desert, let's be clear where the blame lies.

In order of influence they are as follows:

- the White House, and its occupants, who for decades have been advertising to the world that illegal entry is easy and that a large percentage of those who make it will get permanent resident status.

- the White House and DHS heads who, overriding Congress, have ordered that many of our immigration laws will not be enforced, thereby endangering the lives and causing much frustration to the BP and ICE folks on the border and in the interior.

- State and local politicians, like the Latino caucus in the California legislature and apparently the four current candidates for San Diego mayor (today's UT), who support comprehensive immigration expansion (i.e.mass amnesties, non-cooperation with federal immigration authorities, and large increases in legal immigration).

- All pro-illegal immigration organizations, local and national, that label themselves as "civil rights" organizations (and convince gullible media outlets to use the same label) as a way of disguising their true objectives with respect to mass immigration.

- the Mexican government that has long interfered, directly and indirectly, with US immigration legislation and enforcement.

- that large percentage (acc. to repeated surveys by the Pew Hispanic Center) of the Mexican population that says they wish to move to the US and, if necessary, will do so illegally, as they have no respect for U.S. sovereignty and (justifiably) no fear of U.S. law enforcement.

California Congressman To Propose Middle Road On Immigration Reform

Critically important perspective on the Senate's immigration bill (S.744) is provided by an analsyis by Sen. Jeff Sessions' (R-Alabama) office last May.

The title and subtitle pretty much say it all:

"Analysis Of Future Immigration Flow In Gang Of Eight Plan. More than 30 Million Immigrants Granted Legal Status In 10 Years; An Additional 25 Million Will Be Granted Nonimmigrant Work Visas, Bringing Total To 57 Million."

...with corresponding levels of chain immigration thereafter. And the Congressional Budget Office estimates that S.744 would reduce illegal immigration by only 25%.

If you want a human tsunami, S.744 is the bill for you!

California Congressman To Propose Middle Road On Immigration Reform

MissionAccomplished: if "data" equate to "scare tactics," so be it?

You should focus on the big picture. Something on the order of 10-15% of the US population consists of illegal aliens who have come here since 1970 and their descendants. Post-1970 legal immigration has, of course, been responsible for even more of US population growth.

The Census Bureau projects net immigration rates (legal plus illegal) will increase by about 50% between now and half a century from now. As the world adds another few billion people over that period of time, the numbers of people wanting to come to the US will grow. If the US does not decrease total immigration rates dramatically, the country will -- socially, economically and environmentally -- simply go under. It's not rocket science.

California Congressman To Propose Middle Road On Immigration Reform

Consider Repogle's statement, "Polls have shown that the majority of Latinos want immigration reform with a path to citizenship for people in the country illegally."

Of course they do! But why is this relevant? Over the last decade illegal aliens have made up 50-60% of Mexico-born residents in the U.S.

Despite his tough and highly principled stand in favor of "attrition through enforcement", Romney got 27% of the Latino vote. Might we presume that was the most pro-American, educated segment of the Latino citizenry?

Wouldn't sensible leaders of the GOP build on that base rather than engage in the most transparent and unprincipled sort of pandering to illegal aliens, their employers, and the pro-mass amnesty crowd?

Issa is shooting himself in the foot if he does anything to help open the floodgates as any bill similar to S.744 would do. And while mass amnesties may benefit many white CEOS and others in the managerial elites, it will do much harm to Latino and black citizens at the bottom of the economic ladder where they are already overrepresented.
