Face the facts: The Tsarnaev family had been welcomed to America. They didn’t fall through the cracks; they cracked the system. Those manning the alphabet soup of immigration and attendant agencies wanted them here.
It mattered not that the family has deep roots in Chechnya, a Shariah-law dominated anarchy whose chief export is terrorism to Russian cities.
It mattered not that the family’s refugee-status application was probably bogus.
Mother Tsarnaev’s stealing imperiled her stay in the U.S. not at all.
On the bright side: Whereas (alleged) terrorist Tamerlan was never at risk of losing his coveted Green Card, my daughter was stripped of hers by “brave” U.S. immigration law enforcers. Yeah, that bandita is finally at bay – turned away at the Canadian border in a mighty show of force, on a technicality.

The amnesty bill is the last straw not because of the subject, a new amnesty, but because of what it says about Republican perfidy. The amnesty bill is both an arrogant betrayal of principle AND unprecedentedly outrageous in its political stupidity. It asks citizens to buy a pig in a poke merely on the promise of immigration enforcement by the Obama administration, a promise no one with an IQ about 30 can accept.

If AB-1401 passes the Senate and is signed by the governor, it would make California the first state in the country to allow non-citizens to serve on juries.
Technically, someone who is not a citizen but in the country legally, living in the jurisdiction involved, and is proficient in the language, would be allowed to serve.
I guess that means we can kiss “jury of my peers” goodbye. A non-citizen is not my peer.

“Come to the U.S. and kill Americans! Even if you murder women and children, you will be guaranteed protection under our Constitution, ‘Mirandized’ and provided lawyers, along with top-quality medical care (if wounded in an escape attempt) … all at taxpayers’ expense. You could possibly even qualify for long-term quality care, with many free amenities, also at public expense, or perhaps, as an ‘enemy combatant,’ receive an all-expense-paid retirement on an island in the Caribbean.”
Extraordinary nonsense! That is manifestly evident in the debate surrounding the Boston bombing.

The Nuge Immigration Plan (NIP) takes five years for even illegal immigrants to become Americans. Until then, they should be treated like indentured servants, meaning that they have to earn their citizenship.
The NIP is not an amnesty program. Amnesty is for left-wing mollycoddlers, losers, bureaucrats and hippies. Occupy that.
We need a real full-length, undefeatable border fence built. All illegal men in America should be required to work on building the fence, to be completed in one year. We would pay them minimum wage, provide food and shelter, and provide them English and American history classes at night. Everyone wins.
Illegal aliens trying to become an American are not eligible for any state or federal crack welfare during the five-year Nuge immigration probationary period. None. When the going gets tough, the tough Wango ze Tango.
