California Offers Opportunity and Prosperity to Illegals

by IMMIGRATION NEWS UPDATE December 6, 2011
 
Assemblyman Felipe Fuentes, D-Sylmar, who was a major supporter of the California Opportunity and Prosperity Act
 
"It essentially asks the federal government not to enforce the law."
 
- California Assemblymember Tim Donnelly, regarding recent initiative to give state-based status to illegal immigrants in California
 
Nearly a million undocumented immigrants could live and work openly in California with little or no fear of deportation under an initiative unveiled Friday by a state legislator and others.
 
State & Local Update:
 
SACRAMENTO (KABC) -- California's "Dream Act" will make it possible for undocumented students to access college financial aid. But a new report estimates that once fully implemented, the Dream Act will cost taxpayers $65 million a year.
 
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has shared exclusively with The Daily Caller descriptions of three violent illegal immigrants recently released from custody in Cook County, Ill., instead of being forwarded to immigration jails and processed for deportation.
 
Border Security:
 
WASHINGTON — To hear Rick Perry tell it, Iranians and Iranian-backed terrorist operatives are using Mexico as a stepping stone to infiltrate the United States, underscoring a widening threat that warrants a “shutdown” of the U.S.-Mexico border.
 
A look behind the border fence reveals thousands of Mexicans who are trying to escape drug violence to no avail as drug crime syndicates are pushed into areas once deemed quiet.
 
Interior Enforcement:
 
U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio is pushing for a tough anti-sex trafficking law, but it’s partly being held up due to concerns about abetting illegal immigration.
 
Miscellaneous:
 
 Already unhappy with the Obama administration’s handling of illegal immigrants in the U.S., liberal lawmakers on Friday asked the government to go even further and make American aid to Mexico based on that country treating immigrants better.
 
 WASHINGTON -- The members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus will meet next week with Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano to discuss enforcement of Alabama's immigration law, according to Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill.

Who's right: Donald Trump or Macy's?

 

mexico trump_macys_2015

Macy's has removed Donald Trump's products from their shelves because, while he stated that some of the Mexican people crossing our borders illegally are good people, some are murderers and rapists. While a true statement, it is not a "politically correct" statement, so Macy's has decided to pull his products from their shelves.

As a result of this, will you shop less - or not at all - in Macy's stores in the future?
