Recently, President Trump was criticized – and sued in Federal Court – over one of his first Executive Orders in the first days of his office.
More specifically, it was his Executive Order No. 13767, signed January 25, 2017, and published January 30, 2017, entitled as “BORDER SECURITY AND IMMIGRATION ENFORCEMENT IMPROVEMENTS” which has caused a justifiable stir.
Some are all up in arms, again, justifiably so, not merely because of the mass confusion which it has created. In essence, what many have complained about is that many Permanent Resident Aliens (so-called “Green Card” holders) would have been denied re-entry into our United States for a period of 90 days if they were a citizen of, or have visited one of 7 so-called “nations of concern”: Iraq, Syria, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen.
It should be remembered, however, that the so-called 7 “nations of concern” first began during the Obama administration.
In December 2015, President Obama signed H.R.158, the Read the rest of this entry »

Day 5: The standard has been set… by a Black man.
According to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) – the huge government bureaucracy established by Executive Order 13228 under President George W. Bush on October 8, 2001 – and it’s subsidiary bureaucracy the Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE), from 2009-2015, President Barack Obama has deported over 2.5 Million illegal immigrants… more than the George W. Bush administration.
Statistics for this year (2016) are not ready, because… the year hasn’t ended. Duh!
So, there are more to be added to the “we kicked you out because you broke the law” rolls.
Really? Obama deported more illegals than Bush?
He’s deported so many illegals that he’s been nicknamed the “Deporter in Chief.”
In fact, he’s deported MORE than any other administration in history.
MORE than Reagan.
MORE than George H.W. Bush.
MORE than Clinton.
MORE than Carter.
In fact… MORE than ALL OF THEM COMBINED!
Ouch… that’s gotta’ smart!
The Office of Immigration Statistics (a subsidiary of the Department of Homeland Security), says Read the rest of this entry »

There are NO GOOD choices in this General Election.
The Devil We Know vs The Devil We Don’t Know.
We also have:
Choosing the lesser of two evils is still a choice FOR evil.
Granted, someone WILL be elected, and granted further, s/he won’t be liked by those whom didn’t vote for the winner.
The two major party’s candidates are almost universally disliked within and without the parties. And that is a very sad state of affairs. It is, in large part, why there was such enormous support for Bernie Sanders… who is the opposite side of the same coin as Trump.
What concerns me most about Trump is that he seems Read the rest of this entry »

Let’s be absolutely certain about a few things.
Number One: Alabama Governor Robert Bentley is – as a politician – a liar, thief and utter incompetent who is shitting on the people of Alabama and wiping his dirty ass with the United States Constitution.
Number Two: Alabama Governor Robert Bentley is – as a politician – a racist.
Number Three: The majority of the state’s Republican leaders are also incompetent boobs, liars and racists.
Number Four: I have utterly NO respect for the man Robert Bentley. Not as a politician, not as a human being. NONE whatsoever.
I predict Alabama will only be better off only AFTER he leaves… the dirty rotten scumbag.
Alabama has the worst economy in the Southeast. Wonder why? (Joey Kennedy)

Remember when the Legislature was steamrolling through that overreaching, harsh, toughest-in-the-nation immigration law in 2011? The sponsors said not only would be be mean enough to make individuals and families so miserable they’d self-deport, but also would boost Alabama’s economy and put good ol’ red-blooded, U.S. citizen Alabamians back to work.
Odd report this week, then, from the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia, which said Alabama has the worst economy in the Southeast. Worse than Louisiana. Worse than South Carolina. Heck, worse than, my goodness, ThankGodforMississippi
Makes us proud, doesn’t it?
There is a saving grace. While Alabama’s economy sucks more than any other in the Southeast, it’s only the fourth worst economy in the United States. Yea us! We’re No. 47!
The outlook for Alabama isn’t that sunny, either, the report says. Unemployment is down to about 8.3 percent, from last October’s 8.8 percent, but economists attribute that to jobs that have simply disappeared, not to jobs having been created.
That, too, can be traced to the immigration law, which left farmers, construction companies, restaurants and other labor-intensive industries looking for workers, then settling for fewer of them when Alabamians failed to fill the jobs.
A University of Alabama economist was ridiculed by state officials and others when he said Read the rest of this entry »

Someone please tell me… how does one spell xenophobe?
And tell me again, just so I’ll be certain… what is racism?
Finally, just so I won’t forget… isn’t hypocrisy saying one thing, and doing the opposite?
The GOP‘s Immigrants
Rare was the speaker at the Republican convention in Tampa this week who did not invoke his immigrant forebears, almost always described as poor or, at best, of modest means upon arrival to the U.S.
This is hardly surprising because we are not simply a nation of immigrants but overwhelmingly a nation people descended from immigrant strivers. The “huddled masses” of the 1800s and early 1900s were tired and poor, not Indian computer engineers and Chinese biochemists.
This point is worth making because although the Republican speakers were Read the rest of this entry »

The original title was “Illegal immigration ceases.”
To which I began this entry with “Okay, maybe not.”
But, according to the findings made in this independent report, it’s pretty near zero, if not already in the negative numbers.
And, for the
fascist, racist right-wing legislators in the states of Alabama & Arizona, that’s good news!
That means they can stop collaborating with Kris Kobach to write racist legislation, and start working on genuinely serious problems!
Of course, this de-escalation from a “crisis” may actually show them up for what they are: Clueless Incompetent Boobs.
BTW… this was also reported on the NPR afternoon news program “All Things Considered.”

Net Migration from Mexico Falls to Zero—and Perhaps Less
by Jeffrey Passel, D’Vera Cohn and Ana Gonzalez-Barrera
The largest wave of immigration in history from a single country to the United States has come to a standstill. After four decades that brought 12 million current immigrants—more than half of whom came illegally—the net migration flow from Mexico to the United States has stopped—and may have reversed, according to a new analysis by the Pew Hispanic Center of multiple government data sets from both countries.
The standstill appears to be the result of many factors, including the weakened U.S. job and housing construction markets, heightened border enforcement, a rise in deportations, the growing dangers associated with illegal border crossings, the long-term decline in Mexico’s birth rates and changing economic conditions in Mexico.
The report is based on the Center’s analysis of data from five different Mexican government sources and four U.S. government sources. Read the rest of this entry »

For those whom follow the news, Alabama has come under national and international scrutiny for its harsh law, ostensibly aimed at curbing illegal immigration.
Revelations that the law known as HB56 was written largely in part by Kansas Republican Secretary of State Kris Kobach, and fostered in Alabama by Republican State Senator Scott Beason, approved by the overwhelming majority Republican State House and Senate, then signed into law by Republican Alabama Governor Robert Bentley, have set farmers, religious & charitable organizations and state and local government agencies into motion.
Even Missourians and their renown newspaper, the Kansas City Star, have expressed disgust with their Secretary of State, and wrote on February 9th, 2012 that, Read the rest of this entry »

It would be proper for me to acknowledge with you, the reader, that “draconian immigration laws“ have caused great consternation among residents of Arizona, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, and indeed, nationally.
As a matter of habit – long before laws were passed in either Arizona or Alabama – I carry my U.S. Passport with me everywhere. It seems to me that some states’ residents & legislators frustrations have come to the point at which they mistakenly believe they have authority to supercede federal law.
I continue to opine that President Obama could quickly resolve America‘s illegal immigration problem.
In fact, any president before him could have done so.
How? Read the rest of this entry »

Bob, if you read this – and I hope you will – you’re in over your head. You need help. Praying for you doesn’t mean we can’t be critical of you. Iron sharpens iron, you know. I’m glad you’re not accepting a salary, because I’d want my money back already.
The doo-doo is now beginning to hit the fan for Alabama’s RepubliKKKlan legislators & state executives.
The arrest of a MBUSA executive official is just the start.If you’ve not heard how Alabama made INTERNATIONAL (bad) NEWS by now, here it is: Read the rest of this entry »

A Republican Alabama State Senator, referring to illegal immigrants, recently encouraged a Cullman County Republican Party audience to “empty the clip, and do what has to be done.”
Scott Beason spoke Saturday, February 5 to a breakfast meeting of the CCRP and focused his remarks on illegal immigration.
