The Supreme Court backed the president on Monday, refusing to hear a challenge to California’s law allowing illegal immigrants to pay resident college tuition. California requires students to attend a state high school for at least three years to qualify for the tuition break.
Remember Elvira Arellano? An illegal immigrant, Arellano hid out in a Chicago church to avoid deportation after a second illegal entry. Arellano had also committed Social Security fraud, a nasty habit that amnesty proponents prefer to overlook. Apprehended in California in August 2007, Arellano was finally booted out of the U.S.
The United Auto Workers bested servicemen and women in Joe Biden’s Memorial Day weekend address. The vice president boasted of the Obama administration’s role in the resurgence of GM and Chrysler, commending union employees before he took a moment for those who serve our country:
Before I sign off, I just want to mention once again Memorial Day and remember what this holiday’s all about.
Barack Obama continues to refuse to say what he means. He has been offering elaborate justifications for an amnesty scheme that relies on everything from education reform to sponsoring immigrant entrepreneurs (see: Startup Visa Act Shuns America’s Entrepreneurs). Instead of wasting time confusing the truth, the president should just come out and say what he is trying so hard to avoid: the Democratic Party plans to secure its future with votes from illegal Mexican immigrants made U.S.
Politicians love slogans. Slogans are great for assigning import to things we have heard before, or for making something unpopular seem like a good idea. Not content with simple, catchy phrases like “Winning the Future,” President Obama’s staff has elevated sloganeering to an art.
