Illegal Immigration

LtE Doodlings – This stands as well today as it did back in 2006

by Skip May 16, 2018

I’m trying to find some information in the second level basement of my emails – with well over 10GB of emails, there’s a lot of sub-basements to look through.  I stumbled across this Letter to the Editor and unfortunately, it rings as true today as it did back in 2006 (reformatted): Doug Lambert’s column pointed […]

Resistance in California – To The Jerry Brown Moonbat Sanctuary Mandate

by Steve MacDonald March 21, 2018

A plucky berg in California and its Mayor Pro-tem, a descendant of Japanese immigrants, has moved to protect local businesses from the trap set by the state. Los Alamitos, the second smallest city in Orange County, just passed a huge ordinance asserting the city’s compliance with the United States Constitution. Specifically, in an unprecedented yet […]

Trump Points to Lawrence MA as Source Of NH’s Opioid Problem NECN Ignores Its Own Reporting

by Steve MacDonald March 19, 2018

President Trump visited New Hampshire today to talk about the opioid crisis and while doing so pointed to Lawrence Massachusetts as the hub of the Granite State’s ills; taking a legitimate shot at Sanctuary Cities as part of the problem. Speaking at Manchester Community College, Trump said Lawrence is “one of the primary sources of fentanyl in […]

ICE Enforcement Sweep Nets 122 in Faux Sanctuary City of Los Angeles

by Steve MacDonald February 16, 2018

Immigration Control and Enforcement (ICE) just spent the week sweeping through Los Angeles scooping up criminal aliens and citing business who hire them for violating federal law. No sanctuary for you. Federal deportation officers staged one of the biggest enforcement actions in years against businesses in Los Angeles this week, arresting 212 people and serving […]

Do Modern Democrats Vote for Anything That Will Make Government Smaller?

by Steve MacDonald February 8, 2018

Decriminalizing marijuana sounds like is a liberty issue. Not so for Democrats. Addressing the opioid epidemic is sold as an issue of compassion, but to the professional left, it is an opportunity. Sex trafficking, repackaged and sold as a matter of freedom under the banner of legalized prostitution is not about freedom at all. And the Progressive obsession […]

Schumer Shutdown – Chuckie Schumer blinks, reads polls, take that long dive into political “Cave in”

by Skip January 22, 2018

And the Democrat Minority Leader, Chuck Schumer (D/Progressive – NY) has just caved into to the person that the Democrats believe is the stupidest person in the world: President Donald Trump.  How does that even work that the stupid guy won – and won easily yet again? I doubted it was possible, but Dems have […]

Yes, The Feds Can Arrest and Charge Elected Leaders of Sanctuary Cities with a Crime

by Steve MacDonald January 4, 2018

The effort to put pressure on sanctuary cities hopped back into the news cycle this week following remarks by Thomas Homan, the acting head of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). We need to hold these politicians accountable for their actions,” Thomas Homan, acting director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, told Fox News. “This isn’t the America I […]

ICE By The Numbers – Immigration Enforcement Report for 2017

by Steve MacDonald December 6, 2017

Mr. Trump took a unique position on Illegal Immigration and international borders when he became president. He let the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) enforce the existing immigration laws. And letting them off the leash Obama put them on has produced some results. Throughout FY2017, ICE deportation officers and special agents succeeded across a […]

DISQUS Doodlings – Ma’am, didn’t you forget to answer the Primary Question?

by Skip October 20, 2017

Yeah, I know – I’ve been spending perhaps a bit too much time over at a couple of Lefty sites lately.  Once again, yet another defense against deportation that forgets to bring up the MOST important question / answer.  It’s almost as if this ACLU lawyer (“Jeanne Hruska is policy director for ACLU-NH”.) did it […]

“You want DACA? Here are my terms”

by Skip October 11, 2017

A list of 70 odd requirements was issued by the White House on Sunday in response to the Democrats demanding and whining that the Obama Executive Order be “honored” by Trump (and actually want to extend that amnesty to their illegal alien parents that brought these then “kids” into our country illegally AND want to […]

The Dream Act Is Not Law

by Rick Olson September 5, 2017

“The clearest way to show what the rule of law means to us in everyday life is to recall what has happened when there is no rule of law.”   -Dwight D. Eisenhower There is no way around the definition: Succinctly put, illegal immigration is the unauthorized entry into the Country by foreign nationals without […]

All the Democrats say a border wall won’t work. Ummm….

by Skip May 2, 2017

Yeah, the same ones that say that the US shouldn’t have their own (e.g., Obama’s new home had it’s extended…if walls don’t work, er…).  Yet, Israel had a horrific terrorist problem as the Palestinians simply kept trying to kill Israeli citizens (they have sworn to wipe Israel off the map and throw all the Jews […]

Illegal Immigrants Not that Hard to Find After All?

by Steve MacDonald April 20, 2017

How many times did you hear some politician, bureaucrat, or talking head say we’d never be able to find all those illegal immigrants? It seems like it was not as big a problem as they suggested but that the Obama administration did its best to make it worse. The Obama administration left the government’s deportation force […]

Churches, Small Towns, Going “Sanctuary” in New Hampshire

by Steve MacDonald April 17, 2017

Did you know that, Three small Granite State towns — Harrisville, Dublin, and Lyme — voted at town meetings last month to declare themselves as “sanctuary towns.” However, bigger areas like Durham, home to the University of New Hampshire, and Portsmouth failed to pass similar measures. Students at Dartmouth College in Hanover passed around a […]

Heartburn for the illegal immigrant apologists – guess what Sessions is now making a FELONY!!! Yee Hah!

by Skip April 11, 2017

I am so tired of hearing the “let them break our immigration law” musty heads mantra on “it is not illegal to be here, it’s only illegal to enter without documentation”.  Well GUESS WHAT!  New US Attorney General Jeff Session has been making that into the dust it always deserved – and now is doubling, […]

Now they’re against when they were before it earlier?

by Skip April 3, 2017

Funny, I do remember when Democrats were all up in arms that a State (Arizona) wanted to enforce Federal immigration law because the Obama Administration would not.  In fact, the  Obama Administration sued to make them stop. So I just don’t understand why the Democrats are all up in arms (again) to make the Federal […]

Mexico building the Wall? These CongressCritters are too easy

by Skip March 30, 2017

President Trump has often said that Mexico would pay for the Wall where the purpose is to stop (or at least, slow down) illegal immigration on our Southern border.  He’s consistently held to this even as everyone else has either bashed the idea (the Open Borders addicts, “the establishment”, or the illegal alien apologists) or rolled […]

I blame Obama and SJWs for her stupidity – but her parents most of all

Yes. Stupidity.  If you know that you are illegal, and make it public, and make it well known that you are going to speak in public at a certain time and place, you are Stupid.  You are also Stupid if you didn’t listen to the political campaign of now President Donald Trump who basically said […]

Law – if those that create and those that adjudicate it fail to follow it…

by Skip March 3, 2017

But I urge the committee to consider a couple of deeper, less obvious consequences, not just of passing a bill like this, but of even bringing it up for consideration. The first is that a bill like this undermines respect for the very rule of law itself. After all, if the legislature isn’t going to respect […]

Former bastion of NH Conservativism, Union Leader, devolving to Progressive speech codes?

by Skip February 26, 2017

“but where and by whom are the parent going to be held responsible and accountable for causing this problem in the first place?” Or is it trying to have it both ways? Conservative paper, Progressive reporter?  Bonus is that an Officer of the Court is lying (MAN, there’s a lot of that going around lately). […]

New Hampshire Legislature Should Follow Other State’s Lead on Illegal Sanctuary

by Steve MacDonald February 10, 2017

Texas is on its way to banning sanctuary cities within its borders. The carrot is money; the stick is money. Break the law, and you forfeit what could amount to millions your (likely) liberal enclave would rather keep. And Texas is not alone. At least a dozen states now considering similar legislation include Arizona, Florida, Georgia, […]

LIAR! The Reason Rubio Carries Water

by Mike February 23, 2016

It is often said that liberals are guilty of “projection” – ascribing to others their own character flaws. From that, it would be reasonable to infer, with all the sound and fury of Rubio calling Cruz a liar over illegal immigration, that the source of the lies might be closer to home. A couple of […]
