ALG - Border supplemental fails to stop Obama executive amnesty 


August 1, 2014, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Nathan Mehrens today issued the following statement urging rejection of H.R. 5230 as modified, the $694 million border supplemental that does not include the riders necessary to block more executive actions from the Obama administration to grant amnesty: 

"House leadership is once again pushing its border supplemental through without including the necessary riders that will stop the White House from taking more arbitrary executive actions that might suspend deportations, grant legal status to millions presently here illegally, excuse visa overstays, or even grant refugee status. This is a missed opportunity to fully deal with the problems on the border and in our local communities.  And fails to address the root cause of the current crisis: Obama's flagrant disregard for the rule of law."

ALG's Daily Grind - Will Obama grant refugee status to millions of illegal immigrants?


July 31, 2014

Permission to republish original opeds and cartoons granted.

Is Obama planning on granting refugee status to millions of illegal immigrants?
Refugee resettlement laws were never intended to help illegal immigrants who are poor or unemployed, it was supposed to assist those fleeing religious or political or racial persecution. But would that stop Obama?

WGIR: New Hampshire Today with Jack Heath
July 29,2014

Scott Brown addressed the ongoing immigration crisis this morning on WGIR's NH Today radio program with Jack Heath. Brown criticized the administration's leadership and blamed the President and Senator Shaheen for supporting pro-amnesty policies that are creating incentives for people to come to this country illegally.

JACK HEATH: I wanted to touch upon the illegal immigration story and get your quick take. I’m doing these interviews with national pundits, and people are kind of, I think , scratching their heads, trying to figure out what this administration is going to do and when they are going to do it? Your thoughts on leadership at this moment and the finger pointing in Washington? Maybe this week they’re going to pass a bill on some appropriations that the White House requested. But where are we at in your mind on illegal immigration?
SCOTT BROWN: I believe we have an immigration crisis, because as you know, they’re crossing, just walking across the border, and that’s wrong. I have always felt that a nation that’s lost control of its borders really isn’t a nation at all, it’s challenged and especially when you look what’s happening in Washington right now, we need to stop the flow of illegal immigration and turn of the so-called magnets that encourage people to come here illegally. And as you know, when the president issued his executive order on the DREAM Act kids and putting them before people that were trying to follow our laws, something that he and Senator Shaheen have been supportive of. It’s a pro-amnesty policy and it’s drawing illegals here. It’s a very real economic and potential national security problem.
