U.S. immigration protesters drop U.S. border blockade plan

NewsWorld365 - September 21, 2014

plan by U.S. protesters against illegal immigration to block traffic at more than a dozen border crossings in the southwest on Saturday was canceled after organizers said they received online threats from Mexican drug cartels. Billed as a “Shut Down All Ports Of Entry” protest against the Obama administration’s immigration policies, demonstrators had said they would try to stop incoming and outgoing traffic at 17 locations in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California. But lead organizer Stasyi Barth posted a warning on the event’s official website saying that a combination of violent threats and “suspicious activity” on the group’s Facebook page prompted her […]

Obama may find executive powers limited on resolving immigration

    After repeatedly promising to act on his own to break the stalemate on immigration, President Barack Obama is surveying the boundaries of his power. “There are limitations that are under, within the confines of the current law,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest said at a briefing today. “Congress can do more to address this problem than the president can.” Obama has asked Attorney General Eric Holder and Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson to review his options for taking executive action on immigration, in the absence of legislation from Congress, which left last week for a five-week summer […]

Frustrated US lawmakers urge tough action on migrant minors

One Republican lawmaker said on Tuesday America should “whack” its Latin American neighbors by cutting aid in response to a flood of undocumented minors entering the United States, while another asked where the children should be “dropped off when the buses bring them back.” As Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson assured US lawmakers the Obama administration is doing everything it can, including dispatching more agents to the Mexican border, the crisis was deepening the stark battle lines between Republicans and Democrats in Washington. The debate adds another hurdle to efforts to pass legislation on immigration reform. A sweeping immigration overhaul bill passed the […]

Waves of immigrant minors present crisis for Obama, Congress

NewsWorld365 - May 29, 2014

 Tens of thousands of children unaccompanied by parents or relatives are flooding across the southern U.S. border illegally, forcing the Obama administration and Congress to grapple with both a humanitarian crisis and a budget dilemma. An estimated 60,000 such children will pour into the United States this year, according to the administration, up from about 6,000 in 2011. Now, Washington is trying to figure out how to pay for their food, housing and transportation once they are taken into custody. The flow is expected to grow. The number of unaccompanied, undocumented immigrants who are under 18 will likely double in […]

80 immigrants arrested at Texas encampment, 132 more at stash house

NewsWorld365 - April 22, 2014

  At least 80 immigrants suspected of entering the United States illegally were arrested in a makeshift encampment in suburban South Texas. They were found in an undeveloped patch of scrub near an abandoned tennis club in McAllen. They were camped under tents and huts camouflaged with mesquite branches and cacti. Some told authorities they had been there sleeping on pieces of cardboard with little food or water for at least a week. It was unclear whether any of those arrested Thursday afternoon were guides suspected of guarding the immigrants, Border Patrol spokesman Danny Tirado told The McAllen Monitor. A […]

US tech firms: Immigration reform no liability

NewsWorld365 - April 7, 2014

Tech companies are keeping up the push for immigration reform as the political calendar closes in on the midterm elections. In coming months, advocates plan to convince House Republican lawmakers that the issue is not a political liability when voters head to the polls. And for proof, they are pointing to recent primary elections where Republicans who went out on a limb in favor of reform were rewarded. “If I were someone who was a little nervous about this issue, I would look back at our primaries and be heartened by what’s happened,” said Rob Jesmer, the campaign manager with […]

Immigration reform more important than winning House: Pelosi

NewsWorld365 - March 29, 2014

  Passing comprehensive immigration reform is more important than Democrats’ success at the polls in November, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi saidThursday. A number of Republicans and other conservative voices have accused Pelosi and the Democrats of using the immigration reform issue as a political crutch, suggesting the Democrats would rather keep the issue alive for campaign purposes than actually pass a bill. But Pelosi on Thursday rejected that notion outright, and she didn’t mince words. “I believe, and I say this with all the sincerity I have, that it is more important to pass comprehensive immigration reform — to me and to […]

Obama under pressure to slow illegal immigrant deportations

NewsWorld365 - February 23, 2014

President Obama is coming under fire to do more with his executive power to slow record-level deportations of illegal immigrants now that immigration reform legislation is almost certainly dead until after the election. But that’s a tough call for the president, since it would give ammunition to GOP critics who say they don’t trust he’ll enforce immigration laws. Obama’s party benefitted handsomely in 2012 after Obama sidestepped Congress to halt deportations for some illegal immigrant youngsters. The move helped boost Hispanic turnout at the polls, and Obama carried more than 70 percent of the Hispanic vote, according to Pew Research […]

Younger immigrants will help counter aging U.S. population

NewsWorld365 - February 16, 2014

If you think the only reasons to welcome undocumented workers are generosity and compassion toward the “other” — to be welcoming to the stranger — you’re wrong. There is a very selfish reason to offer legal residency to the men, women and children who arrived here without papers: The United States needs all the younger workers we can get. This country, like much of the industrialized world, is in the midst of a demographic crisis, a slow-moving but quite evident population bust that will erode our standard of living and threaten our way of life. Simply put, we don’t have […]

Obama: Immigration reform will get done by end of presidency

NewsWorld365 - February 15, 2014

President Obama predicted that Congress would pass an immigration reform bill before the end of his presidency in a Univision Radio interview airing Friday. “I believe it will get done before my presidency is over,” Obama president said. “I’d like to get it done this year.” Obama cast House Republicans as unwilling to act and told listeners to ratchet up pressure by contacting their legislators.“The main thing people can do right now is put pressure on Republicans who have refused so far to act,” he said. “And I think sending a strong message to them that this is the right thing to do, […]
