Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) sternly scolded Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) on the Senate floor Wednesday after the Democrat objected to his motion for unanimous consent on “Kate’s Law,” which would implement mandatory minimum sentences for illegal immigrant felons.


Reid argued that the mandatory minimum sentencing of criminal illegal aliens would have dire monetary consequences due to the increase in people incarcerated in America’s jails.

In response, Cruz delivered an excoriating attack on Democrats:

“I’m sorry that the Democratic party doesn’t want to spend the money to lock up murderers, and instead, apparently, it’s cheaper to lose our sons and daughters. I think we have the resources to lock up murderers.”

Cruz also accused Reid of suggesting illegal immigrant criminals and all other immigrants shoudl be “lumped into the same bucket.”

“When the Democratic leader suggests that incarcerating aggravated felons, murderers and rapists who illegally re-enter this country is somehow a slight to immigrants — well…I am the son of an immigrant who came legally from Cuba,” Cruz said. “There is no one in this chamber who will stand and fight harder for legal immigrants than I will.”

Mitch? Find your cajones and allow the majority rule to come back! ALLOW a clean vote!!! ~ JP

Wednesday, November 4

Harry Reid kills ‘Kate’s Law’, at least for now:

NOTE: Thursday on ‘The O’Reilly Factor’
Sen. Harry Reid, a Democrat, blocked Kate’s Law. But why? The O’Reilly Factor has the inside story

* Why Won’t McConnell Allow a Clean Vote on Kate’s Law?

Cruz called for unanimous consent on Kate’s Law after reintroducing the bill in the Senate following the Democrats recent blockage of the legislation. The law is named after Kate Steinle, who was gunned down by an illegal immigrant felon who avoided federal law enforcement due to San Francisco’s “sanctuary city” status.

The law only targets “aggravated” illegal immigrant felons, not all immigrants as some Democrats have suggested, Cruz said.

“Every Democrat that stands up and block’s Kate’s Law needs to be prepared to explain why standing with violent criminal illegal aliens is more important than protecting American citizens,” the GOP presidential candidate said on the Senate floor Wednesday.

What the American people know and what the families of victims of violent crime know is that this Administration has consistently and steadfastly placed the goal of amnesty above the goal of public safety. Time and time and time again that has been the fact…

If this Administration spent one-tenth of the effort on enforcement and protecting people from crimes and punishing people who are criminals who violate our immigration laws, rather than on amnesty we’d be a lot safer today. Many of the people who have been injured, robbed, or killed by illegal aliens would be alive today. That’s just fact and everybody knows it.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — On Monday’s edition of Yellowhammer Radio, Host Cliff Sims received a call that is likely to raise more than a few eyebrows. A Birmingham resident named Raul, an American citizen of Mexican descent and a self-described conservative, called in to discuss his perspective on illegal immigration and Donald Trump’s controversial comments on the issue.

“Trump has figured out a way to attract voters,” he said. “What he is doing is firing up our base…he’s touching our hearts and minds and there’s no other candidate that’s really doing that… He rubbed people the wrong way [on immigration] by saying it the way he did. However, it needed to be said.”

Raul’s comments may come as a surprise to many people who have watched the backlash to Trump’s comments on Mexican immigrants.

“There are a lot of bad people coming across [the border],” he explained. “When my parents came across in the late 50s, they came across for a better life. I thank God every day that they came here because I’m living the dream — the American dream. They came the right way, they weren’t here illegally… There has to be a limit to who’s coming in and there has to be a watchful eye as to who we’re letting in.”

A federal judge sharply scolded a Justice Department attorney at a hearing on President Obama’s immigration executive actions, suggesting the administration misled him and saying he fell for it — “like an idiot.”


The other states seeking to block Obama’s orders are Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, West Virginia and Wisconsin.

This was JUST yesterday in Texas by U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen. The judge suggested he could order sanctions against the administration if he finds they indeed misrepresented the facts.

Hanen chided Justice Department attorney Kathleen Hartnett for telling him at a January hearing before the injunction was issued that nothing would be happening with regard to one key part of Obama’s actions, an expansion of the 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, known as DACA, until Feb. 18.

“Like an idiot I believed that,” Hanen said.

“Can I trust what the president says? That’s a yes or no question,” Hanen asked.

Hanen said he would issue a ruling “promptly” on what action, if any, he will take against the Justice Department.

Garnering quite a bit of applause for several of his big one-liners…

“A nation cannot control its borders if being caught violating those borders does not result in one’s swift return home… Without ending catch-and-release, any additional funds for DHS will simply be used to facilitate the transfer of more illegal immigrants into U.S communities…

The Chairman McCaul proposal does not include the following reforms needed to achieve a sound immigration system:

it does not end catch-and-release; it does not require mandatory detention and return; it does not include worksite enforcement; it does not close dangerous asylum and national security loopholes; it does not cut-off access to federal welfare; and it does not require completion of the border fence. Surprisingly, it delays and weakens the longstanding unfulfilled statutory requirement for a biometric entry-exit visa tracking system…”

Poaching Votes:


WASHINGTON—U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL), a senior member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, issued the following statement today regarding immigration legislation that will be ‘marked-up’ tomorrow in the House Homeland Security Committee:

“Republicans won a historic midterm vote on the promise to take real action—not symbolic gestures—to end the immigration lawlessness. It is essential that any immigration measures moved by the Republican Congress actually do the job. Too often, Congress will pass anything on immigration except that which will actually work. Indeed, the repudiated Gang of Eight bill was touted as the ‘toughest border security [and] enforcement measures in U.S. history.’

Congress provides billions of dollars every year to the Department of Homeland Security for border security and immigration enforcement and yet DHS uses those resources to flout the laws Congress has passed, rather than to enforce them.

As such, it is essential that any border plan include some of the following measures, or that these measures be adopted first:

* Mandatory E-Verify

* Mandatory detention and repatriation for illegal entrants

* Expedited deportation for border-crossers

* Close asylum loopholes

* Bar access to welfare and tax credits

* Penalties for the Administration’s continued failure to implement the biometric entry-exit system as required by law

* Penalties for the Administration’s continued failure to build 700 miles of double-layer border fence

* Refusing visas to countries with high overstay rates or that will not repatriate their citizens

Unfortunately, border legislation being marked-up on Wednesday in the House Homeland Security Committee again fails to include the measures necessary to fulfill its promises.

Support Jeff Sessions and call your critter. Tell them when McCaul’s proposal is brought up tomorrow, NOOOO!

The president was interrupted for about five minutes by a couple of very vocal hecklers yelling criticism and questions at him at the Copernicus Center on the Northwest Side. The outburst came after he stressed that the new executive orders he put in place last week would target “felons, not families.”

My maternal grandparents lived there. I grew up in that Polish neighborhood. They are turning over in their graves that male is in the WH. They fled communism and would have recognized his and his islamic sympathies in a heartbeat.

All four of my gradnparents fled it and ALL came here legally and pridefully. Only English was allowed in my maternal grandmother’s home. She would not even acknowdlege her own husband if he spoke to her in Polish. This video shows illegals are not willing to assimilate.


In the very theater he desecrated when he spoke there, served as a movie theater my entire life. My grandfolks had a brick dedicated in their names in 1985 with the rebuilding of this very theater.

I have so many memories of it. Our children were raise there and we all lived there until 2008. We took them to fairs there. The Polish Fest was our favorite.

It was where I embarassed my kids when I confronted Rahm Emmanuel about carpet bagging and his true political intenyions, And in comes waltzing barry.

All I can say, is I am so glad I moved because I couldn’t write this from jail after ‘I’ protested all that he has done to my grandparents adopted home. And my country!

So he lets more loos from Gitmo before congress can act, now…

It IS A M N E S T Y:


Mexico is now issuing birth certificates at its United States consulates so illegal immigrants can avoid deportation.

Until now, Mexico has required its citizens to get birth certificates at government offices in Mexico. Many of those living in the U.S. ask friends and relatives back home to retrieve the paperwork, but the delay can hold up their applications for various benefits.

Now, even as Republicans in Congress try to undo President Barack Obama’s plan to shield millions of immigrants living illegally in the U.S., Mexico is trying to help them apply for programs that would allow them to remain in this country and continue sending money back to relatives across the border.
