I wonder how close a British finger was to the Chunnel’s Big Red Button.
France deployed 120 riot police to Calais on Wednesday to bolster security after thousands of migrants tried to enter Britain through the Channel Tunnel in recent days, with the resulting chaos leading to at least one death.
The President apparently told Ms. Lopez to go yell at the Republicans. …Yeah, good luck with that one, Barack Obama. This is not a situation where Ms. Lopez – and the people who think as she does on immigration issues – needs to be persuaded to vote for the Democrat over the Republican. No, this is a situation where Ms. Lopez needs to be persuaded to vote at all.
The White House said Wednesday it was “crazy” to attempt to divine the president’s post-election plans for an immigration executive order based on a procurement request issued by the Department of Homeland Security.
“I mean, this is crazy,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest said, adding he would caution reporters against “making assumptions” based on the “procurement of green paper.”
The proposal, unveiled earlier this week by Breitbart News, asks potential contractors to prepare for the possibility of producing up to 34 million green cards and work permits over the next five years.
Immigration activists disrupted a speech by Hillary Clinton on Tuesday evening at an event in New York City to benefit groups advocating on behalf of programs and legislation to support first responders and workers affected by the September 11th attacks.
After Clinton’s speech, the group of at least six young activists began chanting, “Undocumented! Unafraid!” Several of them wore t-shirts that said: “Will You Deport My Family.”
Honestly? She probably would. At least, these people’s specific families. The woman knows how to hold a grudge.
Democrats are in damage-control mode in the wake of the White House decision to postpone executive action on immigration until after November’s elections.
Immigrant rights advocates on and off Capitol Hill are up in arms over the delay, leading to Democratic concerns that the decision will alienate Hispanic and other immigrant voters — who tend to side with the Democrats — at the polls in November.
Well, now the Democrats know what happens when you let Barack Obama drive your strategy. Which is to say, Chaos and Old Night. I especially enjoyed watching Democratic politicians blame Barack Obama’s inability to keep his promise to act unilaterally (and quite imperially) with regard to immigration on… the Republican party, which is more or less simply a bemused spectator at this point. I don’t think it’s going to work this time, fellows.
