…The insanity will not end
They don’t call him ‘Dick‘ for nothing Durbin strikes again!

Supreme Court Could Expand State-Level Immigration Enforcement
The U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral arguments Oct. 16 in a case that could dramatically change the landscape of immigration enforcement. The issue before the justices is whether a state can use the information on the federal I-9 employment verification form to prosecute someone for violating state law.
The underlying case involves three unauthorized immigrants who were convicted of identity theft in Kansas after gaining employment by using someone else’s Social Security number on the I-9, which businesses must complete for all employees to ensure they’re authorized to work. They were caught, tried, and convicted under a Kansas state identity-theft law. But then you will have that traitorous basTURD John Roberts blocking it… (Continue to full article)

Health insurance for immigrants could prove a big fault line in 2020. Last week the president announced a plan to keep out many legal immigrants (excepting refugees, etc.) who can’t show that they will be able to cover their medical costs, whether through insurance or out of their own pockets — the idea being that immigrants should support themselves, not rely on our safety net or impose uncompensated-care costs on hospitals. By contrast, many Democrats wwant to give illegal immigrants full access to taxpayer-funded health care. The Center for Immigration Studies has an interesting pair of reports on this topic.

All had earlier tried to cross here with a lawyer after being returned to Mexico to await court hearings, and all had been sent back by U.S. Customs officers. Some had already waited four months.

“Hold my coffee.”
On April 29th, 2019, Fisher Sand & Gravel Co. (Fisher Industries) was contacted by We Build the Wall to construct a half mile of fence in Sunland Park, New Mexico. The location was deemed “Unbuildable” by government agencies due to the harsh construction conditions. In just over one month of being notified of this project, Fisher procured and fabricated the bollard fence panels and finished all construction within two weeks.
US Army Corps of Engineers said, “Building a border wall over that terrain is impossible” Fisher Sand & Gravel Co. said “Hold my coffee.” and they built it. Continue reading

Arkansas U.S. Representatives: Rick Crawford (R) – French Hill (R) – Steve Womack (R) – Bruce Westerman (R)
It comes to my attention that each of you have once again betrayed middle-class Americans, most particularly white citizens and blacks who have achieved middle-class status without unearned government largesse.
I refer to the passage of HR 1044 and companion yet to be voted on S 386 which will attract overwhelming numbers of Chinese banking & real-estate investors accompanied by huge numbers of Indian Techs, all compliments of the cheap labor lobbyists. Continue reading
