Although the December Bureau of Labor Statistics’ report showed that unemployment declined to 6.7 percent, a 5-year low, the economy created only 74,000 jobs, the fewest in 3 years. December’s jobs total fell so far short of the anticipated 200,000 and the 2012-2013 average of 182,500 that even established administration supporters can’t explain away what reality-based cynics have long known. No meaningful recovery is afoot and there’s none pending.

Congress no sooner reconvened than the all-out push for comprehensive immigration reform picked up where it left off. For clarity’s sake, I’ll define “reform” the way Capitol Hill interprets it—legalizing and granting amnesty to 11-20 million illegal immigrants, giving them instant work authorization and tripling legal immigration to more than 30 million high and low-skilled foreign workers within the first decade.

Californians are disappointed but not surprised that one of the 805 new laws the state passed in 2012 will allow illegal aliens to practice law. Once the legislature approved AB 1024, Governor Jerry Brown’s signature was assured. The California Supreme Court’s okay, one of its first actions in 2013, was inevitable.

A year ago, rumor began to circulate on Capitol Hill that Congress would make comprehensive immigration reform its first matter of business when it reconvened in January. During the 2012 election campaign, President Obama had repeatedly promised the Hispanic lobby that, with the Affordable Health Care Act behind him, immigration would be his top priority.

This week, Philippines’ President B. Simeon Aquino formally requested that the United States designate his country as eligible for Temporary Protected Status (TPS). If granted, probable outcome, Filipinos would be allowed to stay and work in the US even if they are currently illegal residents. Foreign Affairs Secretary Albert F.del Rosario added to Aquino’s statement that TPS would help Filipinos support their families back home by sending remittances and thus assist in the country’s post-Haiyan recovery.

Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook’s $20 billion net worth founder, has invested a large chunk of his money into destructive comprehensive immigration bills, one in the House and another, already passed, in the Senate. Zuckerberg’s goal through his pro-immigration lobbying group, is to triple legal immigration by increasing H-1B and other work visas and granting amnesty to 12-20 million aliens already living in the US.

No nation puts up with as much abuse and disrespect from illegal immigrants as the United States. While aliens claim to be “in the shadows,” this week, demanding comprehensive immigration reform, they ratcheted up their childish, boorish behavior. About 1,500 illegal immigrants and their advocates stormed House Speaker John Boehner and 200 other U.S. Representatives’ offices falsely protesting that current immigration deportation policies “break up families” and are racist.
