“No, Our Immigration System Is Not Broken”

http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/no-our-immigration-system-is-not-broken/article/2552534

If a UAC is in fact accompanied by a parent, then immediate deportation if the law, even if from a non-contiguous country.

It’s also interesting to invoke Cesar Chavez as he was adamantly opposed to Illegal Immigration for it undermined his work to help secure benefits for LEGAL Farmworkers.

“By any measure, fears of (Illegal) immigration are driving many white Americans to the Republican Party.  And, indeed, the Republican strategy on immigration appears to have been successful. Republicans now control the House and the Senate, the governor’s office in 31 states, and two-thirds of the state legislatures. They are winning the political war.”

“An even bigger factor is that the ties of racial and ethnic minorities to the Democratic Party are tenuous. Research by Taeku Lee and myself shows that most Latinos and Asian Americans don’t feel like they fit into either party. In national surveys, those who refuse to answer a question about party identification, those who claim that they do not think in partisan terms, and independents make up the clear majority of both groups. All told, 56 percent of Latinos and 57 percent of Asian-American identify as nonpartisans.

Even among blacks, there are signs of ambivalence. Almost 30 percent of blacks feel that the Democratic Party does not work hard for black interests.”

Gee, No wonder why I fall into the Proud Independent group.

For Obama, Executive Order on Immigration Would Be a Turnabout
“President Obama is poised to ignore stark warnings that executive action on immigration would amount to violating our laws and would be very difficult to defend legally.

Those warnings came not from Republican lawmakers but from Mr. Obama himself.”

Obamas Immigration Amnesia

“..., Obama said he lacked the legal authority to suspend deportation of family members. Now, he says he has just such legal authority.”
