Bill Keller Would Like To See Your Papers, Please

(Read the full article here: Bill Keller Would Like To See Your Papers, Please)

Bill Keller, a rich, white, successful man who has probably never had his citizenship questioned and would doubtlessly be appalled if he did, thinks “Americans should master their anxieties” about national identification cards. Not him, mind you, but the rest of us. 

Bill Keller is the former executive editor of the New York Times, which, if the Page Onedocumentary is to be believed, mostly involves staring ponderously out of limo windows whilst expounding upon journalism’s imminent precipice; your call as to whether his scotch-face is better than Alec Baldwin’s parody of it. Since jumping the NYT ship, he’s had an occasional opinion column in which he either says “Twitter WAAH” or “Hillary for VP WAAH” over and over again.…Read More

GOP Feels [Coming Soon] About Immigration

(Read the full article here: GOP Feels [Coming Soon] About Immigration)

The GOP has been twisting itself into a pretzel since Obama’s executive order last Friday tohalt deportation of DREAM Act-eligible undocumented immigrants.

Some GOP lawmakers out the gate threatened to sue over the legality of the EO, but that’s the knee-jerk reaction of the smaller portion of the party that’s causing the Republicans to bleed Latino votes….Read More

King, Grassley, Rubio Throw A Fit Over Obama’s Immigration Order

(Read the full article here: King, Grassley, Rubio Throw A Fit Over Obama’s Immigration Order)

Conservative leaders got their panties in a knot after Obama ordered his administration to stop deporting Dream-Act eligible illegal immigrants. Here’s a brief rundown of conservative responses to the President’s executive order:

Peter King

On Mike Huckabee’s radio program, Iowa Republican Rep. Steve King announced his intentions to sue the Obama administration, claiming to have successfully sued his own state governor for a similar issue: “I have done it once in the past successfully when then-Governor Tom Vilsack thought he could legislate by executive order — and the case of King vs. Vilsack is in the books.”… Read More

Obama Stops Deportation of Dream-Act Eligible Eligible Illegal Immigrants

(Read the full article here: Obama Stops Deportation of Dream-Act Eligible Eligible Illegal Immigrants)

Circumventing an obstinate Congress, Obama has ordered his administration to stop deporting illegal immigrants under the age of 30 if they meet certain requirements.

Effective immediately, undocumented persons who came to the States under the age of 16 will be allowed to stay and apply for work permits, provided they have lived in the country continuously for at least five years, pose no national security threat, have a clean criminal record, and be either enrolled in school, hold a diploma or GED, or serve or have served in the military….

Evangelical Group Endorses Immigration Reform, Romney Totally Does Or Does Not Agree

 

 (Read the full article at PolticOlogyEvangelical Group Endorses Immigration Reform, Romney Totally Does Or Does Not Agree

Here’s an interesting development: Focus on the Family, one of the leading social conservative groups, has come out in favor of immigration reform (which we all know is code for <spooky>Amnesty.</spooky>)

“Immigration reform” is also code for ain’t never gonna fucking happen, as the combined efforts of George W Bush, John McCain, Ted Kennedy and Barack Obama have yet to accomplish any substantial reform on immigration, a void that has allowed states like Arizona to step in and solve the problem by making looking Hispanic illegal. (Baseball players excepted. Go Diamondbacks!)

Evangies—evangelicals gets old throughout a whole article, trust me—have every reason to support immigration reform… Read More

Mitt Romney Remains Comically Unpopular With Latino Voters

 

 

Soooooooooo the Republicans have been trying Hispanic outreach to close what can only be described as a comically large gap between Romney and Obama among Hispanic voters. How’s that going?

Welp, according to a June 8 poll by Latino Decisions (I’m guessing they tilt to the left, but whatevs) Obama has…a comically large lead over Romney, 66-23. I’d say there’s no way Obama can go any higher, but 11% of respondents were undecided, so I guess can he still hit 77%… Read more

SCOTUS Hearts Arizona’s Immigration Bill

 

Solicitor General Donald Verrilli was back against opponent Paul Clement in the Supreme Court today, this time arguing not about Obamacare but Arizona’s infamous immigration law, SB 1070.

Verrilli had a rough go of it last month over the Affordable Care Act arguments, and today wasn’t much better. According to the indispensable SCOTUSblog, even the more reliably liberal justices were not buying Verrilli’s argument that Arizona overstepped its bounds by legislating immigration policy and enforcement, ostensibly the purview of the federal government. At one point, Justice Sonia Sotomayor flat out told Verrilli his argument “wasn’t selling,” and asked if he had anything else…Read More

Senate Democrats To Challenge GOP Over Arizona Immigration Law

 

Chuck Schumer and The Democrats (worst Peter, Paul and Mary cover band ever) have laid the groundwork for a vote invalidating Arizona’s infamous SB 1070 should the Supreme Court uphold the law this summer.

The bill would hit the floor of the Senate just as the general election is gearing up. While it has almost no chance of passing, the bill would put GOP legislators and Mitt Romney in an incredibly awkward position of having to either support SB 1070 and once-and-for-all no-take-backsies wave goodbye to the increasingly important Hispanic vote, or throw Arizona under the bus and reveal a seismic rift in their party…Read More
