(CNSNews.com) - Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said at a Pentagon press briefing yesterday that “because of open borders and immigration issues,” the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) is an “immediate threat.”
In the context of this ISIL threat, Dempsey said he had had conversations ...byPublished on 08-30-2014 12:03 AM Number of Views: 685

President Barack Obama wants a national debate on immigration, says his spokesman Josh Earnest.
The new call for a debate suggests that the president is abandoning — or at least delaying — his high-risk promise to Latino advocates that he would provide work permits to millions of illegal immigrants in the weeks before the election.

President Barack Obama hinted Thursday that he would delay his unpopular executive amnesty until after the critical November election.
“Our immigration system is broken and need to be fixed, and my preference continues to be that Congress act,” he said, echoing a familiar claim by advocates of greater immigration.
But he next suggested ...byPublished on 08-29-2014 09:45 AM Number of Views: 786

(Reuters) - When Republican Rep. Jeb Hensarling sat down with colleagues and constituents at a recent Chamber of Commerce lunch in Dallas, the first question he faced was whether Congress planned to address immigration policy and a burgeoning border crisis.
"I'm supposed to do this in 30 seconds?" he joked, noting ...byPublished on 08-28-2014 11:17 PM Number of Views: 695
Americans back border agents, demand return of U.S. Marine in Mexican jail
Marine Andrew Tahmooressi gets welcomed home from one of two tours in Afghanistan. He has been in a Mexican prison since March 31 on gun charges
Mass rallies scheduled across the country this weekend in support of non-militarized police, veterans and Border Patrol agents have spread to 116 communities, organizers say.
The rallies begin Friday and Saturday in cities across the nation.
They were spawned by concerns that Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson is being unfairly portrayed as a cold-blooded killer in the national media, that U.S. Marine Andrew Tahmooressi is being held in a Mexican jail because he accidentally crossed the border with legal American guns, and that U.S. Border Patrol agents have come under fire from drug cartels while trying to police the southern border.

Overpasses for America and Americans for Legal Immigration PAC, or ALIPAC, are leading a broad coalition of groups participating in the rallies, which they see as a “warm-up” for even larger protests scheduled for Oct. 24-25 against illegal immigration.
“This coalition of organizations we’re putting together will provide the infrastructure for what will be millions of enraged Americans if Obama unilaterally declares amnesty, which he is telegraphing,” said William Gheen, president of ALIPAC.
If Obama follows through with threats to declare amnesty for a large percentage of the roughly 25 million to 35 million illegals now in the country, Gheen said his organization is prepared to “take the next step,” beyond holding protest signs on highway overpasses.
“We may have to escalate our peaceful activism beyond overpasses and begin doing large scale sit-ins of whatever processing facilities they try to set up for the illegals,” Gheen said. “What Obama is doing and telegraphing he is going to do is a complete violation of our existing laws, our Constitution and our republic. We really have been growing as a result.”
James Neighbors, founder of Overpasses for America, said he senses that grassroots activism is growing in America.
“You get the train moving and people jump on, so whatever it takes,” he said. “We jumped on the border protests July 18-19 and that was the first time multiple groups had come together, and that was sort of our alpha test. We had some bumps and potholes along the way, but we ended up pulling it off with over 320 groups.”
Neighbors continued, “We understand Obama is the poster child for the problem but he is not the problem. He’s just the front man for the whole thing. You can almost look at Obama as the crowning achievement of the corruption going on in D.C. right now. He’s easily the most corrupt president we’ve ever had, but we like to bring attention to all of the problems that are a result of that agenda, and some of those we’ll be addressing this weekend.”
These include what Neighbors calls the “misperception” that all police are out to kill unarmed black teens.
Gheen and Neighbors are careful not to call this weekend’s event “protests,” but rather “rallies.”
“It’s the misperception of our police forces by the liberal media and the fact that we have a Marine locked up in Mexico and the president hasn’t even talked about it,” Neighbors said. ...
