Outrage! U.S., Mexico Collude to Grant Aliens Asylum Based on Fraudulent Claims

In July, I wrote Asylum Claims Soar; Everyone Wants to Come to America about the Associated Press’ alarming report that during the last five years asylum claims have quadrupled.

Asylum Claims Soar; Everyone Wants to Come to America

During the last five years, asylum requests in the United States have nearly quadrupled.  Most claims come from the Central American countries of El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala. According to U.S. Citizen and Immigration Services’ Associate Director Joseph Langlois, the agency received more than 19,119 asylum requests through May. USCIS anticipates receiving 28,600 more by fiscal year-end September. During fiscal 2009, the agency received just 5,369 such requests.

Unlicensed Immigrant Killed My Son, S 744 Pardons Criminals

The Border Security, Economic Opportunity and Immigration Modernization Act, S.744, is filled with lies of commission. Chuck Schumer and his Gang of 8 tell us that aliens will be required to pay back taxes and pay fines as well as be subject to extensive background checks – all empty promises. Schumer’s deceit will supplant “the check is in the mail” as America’s favorite lie.

Audit: Feds' immigration check system fails 12 percent of the time

On December 18, 2012 the Washington Times published a story about a Department of Homeland Security Inspector General report that incompetence and ineptitude at USCIS is so rampant that criminal aliens stay in the United States and obtain jobs in sensitive locations and participate in various social welfare programs.

Record Numbers of U-Visa Holders in U.S.; Are They Legitimate?

For the third consecutive year, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced that it has reached the statutory maximum of 10,000 petitions for U-visas.

"Waiving" Goodbye to Checks and Balances

Just when you think you’ve seen it all, the Obama administration has found yet another way to outdo itself where immigration policies are concerned. The newest ploy: an outrageous proposal to provide illegal aliens with “An Unlawful Presence Waiver.”

Inspector General Report: Fraud Compromises the Immigration System Thus Compromising National Security

When failures of the immigration system are discussed in the news media, the focus of the discussion most likely involves either our porous southern border that is supposed to separate the United States from Mexico and the need to investigate and prosecute employers who intentionally hire illegal aliens.

Outrageous! Foreign-Born Landing High Paying Jobs at Record Rate

Despite relentless high unemployment in all sectors, across all demographic categories and throughout all age groups, U.S. companies are hiring foreign-born workers at a furious pace. Business Insider reporter Julie Bort describes the corporate eagerness to hire non-U.S. workers as “tripping over themselves to fill high paying jobs with workers from overseas.”

Agriculture Lobby Relentless in Its Attack on E-Verify

In recent days, mainstream media newspapers have published a spate of stories about growers and dairy farmers who protest Lamar Smith’s Legal Workforce Act. They offer a variety of familiar but misleading reasons: no Americans will do the jobs or E-Verify is too cumbersome to deal with.

Here’s an excerpt from a Philadelphia Inquirer story about a hearing in Harrisburg which focused on an E-Verify bill promoted by Daryl Metcalfe, a Pennsylvania state representative opposed to illegal immigration:

Compliments of DHS, More "Temporary" Residents Have Their Visits Extended

Not that more proof is needed but here’s another example of the immigration truism that nothing is more permanent than a "temporary" resident. Last week, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano extended the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) designation for Sudan and the new Republic of South Sudan for 18 months each, effective November 3 and valid through May 2, 2013.
