To New Hampshire Senator Kelly Ayotte: Use Glasses CAPS Gave You!

One of the biggest concerns S.744’s opponents have is that the Senators who will soon be voting on the bill haven’t read it. Recently, CAPS launched a campaign in Washington D.C. which distributed eyeglass to the Senators with a memorandum urging them to read the 1,077 page legislation that's full of waivers, exceptions and vague, conflicting language before they vote on the bill.

S. 744:1,077 pages of operable—and scintillating!—legislative language.

Something largely overlooked in huge bills like S.744, Obamacare and Dodd-Frank: Bills like this are wrong in principle, irrespective of their content, because an ordinary citizen has no realistic hope of knowing what that content is nor how it applies to him, if it does.

I’m Fighting Back – And So Can You

Last Saturday morning, my phone rang. When I picked it up, the woman on the other end announced that she was calling on behalf of the Republican National Committee (RNC) and asking for donations.

Minority Senate Leader McConnell Blind to the Link between S. 744 and Youth Unemployment

As the Senate debate about the Border Security, Economic Opportunity and Immigration Modernization Act, S. 744, comes down the home stretch this week, Minority Leader Mitch McConnell will play a crucial role. McConnell, as the Senate's Republican leader, could be an influential opposing force. Or McConnell can cave into the Gang of Eight and vote for S. 744 which might in turn signal other fence-sitting Republicans that supporting the bill is the right thing to do.

CAPS Accepts Paul Ryan's Offer to Debate "Anybody" on Amnesty

Last week at a National Association of Manufacturers meeting, House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan boldly challenged anyone to debate him on whether S. 744 is amnesty or, as he likes to put it, earned legalization. Ryan insisted that S.

Rubio: “Legalization is Not Conditional”

As the Senate immigration bill begins its first week under review, the key issues are border security, border security and border security. Opponents like Jeff Sessions, Chuck Grassley and Ted Cruz insist that the Border Protection, Economic Opportunity and Immigration Act, S. 744, lacks meaningful security measures.

Immigration Reform Bill Won't Help U.S.

If you governed a country with more than 20 million of its citizens unemployed or underemployed, with trillion-dollar annual public deficits piled atop $17 trillion of accumulated debt, and with borders so porous that foreigners come and go — but mostly come — at their own pleasure, the last thing you would do is enact legislation that would grant immediate work permission to the 11 million illegal immigrants already living here.

Amnesty Bill Written By and For Special Interests

Anyone who has kept up with the news since the start of 2013 has been barraged with endless Internet and newspaper articles and radio/ TV ads telling us that “immigration reform” (as the mainstream media puts it) is not only for our own good, but even necessary – it will grow our slumping economy, save our entitlement system, secure our borders, “re-unite families” and most importantly, bring people “out of the shadows," as if they were ever really hiding from anyone.

Rubio Admits (in Spanish) That Amnesty Precedes Enforcement; CAPS Challenges Him to “Read the Bill” (Usted Debe Leer la legislación)

After weeks of talking out of both sides of his mouth, Senator and Gang of Eight leader Marco Rubio finally confessed (in Spanish) what his critics have known all along. The Border Security, Economic Opportunity and Immigration Modernization bill, S. 744, grants amnesty first with enforcement to come later---maybe.

Bureau Of Labor Statistics Supplemental May Report: Unskilled Workers Hammered

On Friday, the Bureau of Labor Statistics released its May unemployment report. Even though unemployment rose slightly to 7.6 percent, the official job creation statistics were mildly better than in recent months. In May, the economy added about 175,000 jobs. When economist Edwin S. Rubenstein studied the data more closely, however, he found that the American-born participation is the labor force is smaller this May than it was a year ago.
