As the 2012 election nears, the race for the Hispanic vote becomes more and more critical, as President Obama and his presumed Republican rival Mitt Romney scramble to recruit minority supporters. The Obama campaign, for example, launched on Wednesday a series of Spanish-language advertisements in Florida, Nevada, and Colorado that highlight the President’s purported dedication to boosting federal funding for education.
In an effort to woo Hispanic voters, President Obama made a pledge Saturday to push for immigration reform early in his second term. "This is something I care deeply about, [and] it’s personal to me," Obama told news anchor Enrique Acevedo in a television interview with Univision, a network viewed largely by Hispanics in the United States. Obama’s appearances on Univision have been frequent, as Saturday marked the 15th time he has been interviewed by the network, which purportedly reaches 97 percent of Hispanic households in the United States.
The Boston Herald reported on April 13 that Immigration and Customs Enforcement is pushing to deport Onyango Obama, President Obama’s illegal-immigrant uncle. Onyango came from Kenya and never went back, just like the President's Aunt Zeituni. Cops collared Onyango Obama in August 2011 after he almost crashed into a police cruiser. The President’s uncle was driving drunk, a charge to which he confessed in court in late March.
Disregarding the concerns of many in his party and many of the citizens who elected him, Idaho Governor Butch Otter is headed back to China to continue courting the world’s largest communist regime and second largest economy.
In a new ploy to push backdoor amnesty, the Obama administration is quietly working to curb the deportation of illegal immigrants by granting "unlawful presence waivers," for which to qualify, an illegal immigrant must be a relative of an American citizen.
Current U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner David Aguilar was caught on video during a 2007 town hall meeting with agents suggesting that stopping illegal immigration was not a high priority for the Border Patrol, sparking criticism from experts and even his own officers. The film was obtained exclusively by the Liberty News Network.
President Barack Obama’s drunken uncle, Onyango Obama, has admitted to drunk driving, but apparently the Kenyan illegal will not be deported any time soon, despite his evading a deportation order for 21 years.
In another significant embarrassment to the scandal-plagued Obama administration, newly released documents revealed that the supposed “drug lords” being targeted in the deadly federal “Fast and Furious” gun-running operation were actually working for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) all along.
On Tuesday the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit in New Orleans upheld a lower court ruling invalidating a Farmers Branch, Texas, city ordinance aimed at combating the presence of illegal aliens by forbidding those without proper immigration documentation from renting housing. This Circuit Court ruling keeps in force the injunction imposed by the lower district court against the law — Ordinance 2952.
"Perhaps it's boat-rocking time in Mississippi," said Governor Phil Bryant on Wednesday at the State Capitol, surrounded by other supporters of House Bill 488. State lawmakers grabbed the sides of the boat and passed the controversial anti-illegal immigration bill by a vote of 70-47 late Wednesday night during an around-the-clock session that didn’t end until the wee hours of Thursday morning.
