Some folks out there really, really hate illegal immigrants. That much is clear from some of the comments left on Mandy Oaklander's story about the recent raid on the former Oasis nightclub.
But only the most soulless alien-hater could cheer the deportation of Rigoberto Damian Calderon. The 26-year-old has worked to support his family and has no criminal record. He committed his only "crime" at 6 years old, when he and his two younger brothers illegally crossed the U.S. border in the backseat of their parents' car.
Kris Kobach, Kansas' secretary of state and America's leading provider of illegal-immigration fear-mongering, has demonstrated that he will do anything in his power, and maybe some things out of his power, to keep illegal immigrants from voting in our nation's elections.
Of course, illegal immigrants aren't voting in our nation's elections, nor do they appear to have much interest in doing so. But that won't stop Kobach from stopping them, even if it means making it harder for some people to vote. His latest target: absentee voters. To be fair, if anyone was going to defraud the system, they'd likely vote absentee. And the latest proposed measures aren't altogether unreasonable. But still!
Last night in Washington, D.C., Kris Kobach and his cadre of lawmaking Republicans unveiled their master plan for an Illegal-Free America. They said they were launching an effort to deny citizenship to kids born in this country to undocumented parents.
Their argument is that the 14th Amendment should only apply to children who have at least one parent who is a permanent resident or citizen, not to everyone born in the United States, as it's presently worded.
Kobach told the Washington Post the plan: First, resurrect the concept of "state citizenship." Then deny it to the descendants of illegals.
A janitorial company with contracts to clean Missouri state office buildings cannot be held liable for workers who presented novelty Social Security cards during background checks.
In 2007, 25 employees of Sam's Janitorial Service were arrested or detained on suspicion of having falsified documentation. The sweep made headlines because the undocumented workers were scraping the gum off the floors of state office buildings. Upon the arrests, then Gov. Matt Blunt terminated the contracts and barred Sam's Janitorial from working for the state.
Almost a decade after it was introduced, the federal DREAM Act -- an immigration-reform bill that would clear a path to citizenship for young undocumented aliens who agree to serve in the military or attend college -- has a shot at passing this week.
The momentum has local immigrants rallying for the cause, which would turn well-behaved young people -- who, being kids and all, didn't likely choose to jump the border -- into tax-paying, educated citizens. Just the kind of people we want around here, right Kris Kobach?
California illegal immigrants: 1, Kris Kobach: 0
Kobach lost his latest effort to tighten up immigration laws around the country on Monday, when the California Supreme Court upheld a
state law that allows anybody -- including illegal immigrants -- who
attended three years of high school in the state to pay significantly reduced
tuition at state universities.
Aw, man is there some patriotic news out of the Kansas U.S. Attorneys Office this Veterans Day.
Mexican illegal alien Inocente Monroy Alcantara, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom announced, has pleaded guilty to document fraud for using a Marine's identity to work in the country and open up bank accounts.
Alcantara lived and worked in Arkansas City, Kansas, and stole the Social Security number of a California-based Marine.
As shiny new Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach was shaking the election-night confetti from his hair, judges were busy scrutinizing the immigration laws he crafted for Hazleton, Pennsylvania, and Fremont, Nebraska.
And it wasn't all good news for towns that have adopted his federal-authority-skirting brand of regulations.
The award for first politician to start pandering to the right after the Democrats' drubbing on Tuesday goes to ... Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster!
Not about to be relegated to the chill of new Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach's shadow, Koster is reminding voters that he hated illegal immigration before it was cool, and he still hates it.
Last night, Club Oasis was raided by law enforcement who
were after all kinds of illegals. Fox4 reports that immigration officials accompanied
police officers to the West Side club that and together, they took down underage
drinkers and undercitizened clubbers.
Eleven people were arrested by the police because of underage drinking, a hallmark concern of America. But immigration officials were not to be out-Americaned.
