    Thanks to uncontrolled ILLEGAL immigration in California, we now have an estimated 2.82 million ILLEGAL immigrants–roughly the combined populations of California’s 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th largest cities!

    Hispanic/Latino enrollment comprises 53.35% of total enrollment in California public schools–must larger than Hispanic/Latino population in the overall California population.

    One in every three California K-3rd graders is designated as an “English Learner” who primarily speaks Spanish.

    A nation who no longer controls its borders is no longer a nation. Some may like that idea. I’m tired of paying for that folly.

    Living in Silicon Valley, I 100% support LEGAL immigration, which has proven beneficial to the region and the U.S. economy.

    However, the problem in California is uncontrolled ILLEGAL immigration. In 1994, California voters approved a law blocking ILLEGAL immigrants from receiving free public benefits. Federal courts overturned it claiming that immigration enforcement is a federal responsibility.

    Now, we have 2.82 million ILLEGAL immigrants living in California–roughly equal to the combined populations of California’s 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th largest cities!

    The 1986 Amnesty was a disaster for California. California voters approved a law that would block ILLEGAL immigrants from receiving free public services. The law was overturned by federal courts claiming that immigration enforcement was a federal responsibility.

    Now, California has 2.82 MILLION illegal immigrants (U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security data)–the equivalent of California’s 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th biggest cities COMBINED.

    Let’s be sure to clearly distinguish between LEGAL and ILLEGAL immigrants.

    According to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, there were an estimated 2.82 MILLION illegal immigrants living just in California alone. To provide some perspective, that roughly equals the COMBINED populations of California’s 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th largest cities (San Jose, San Francisco, Fresno, and Sacramento).

    California’s illegal immigrant population surged after the failed 1986 Amnesty under Reagan. In 1994, California voters approved a law to block ILLEGAL immigrants from receiving free public services. The California law was overturned by the federal courts claiming that immigration enforcement is a federal responsibility.

    Now, one in every three California K-3rd graders is designated an “English Learner” who primarily speaks Spanish. Enrollment of Hispanic/Latino students in California’s public schools increased 77% since 1993, the fastest-growing demographic. Asian enrollment was 2nd-fastest growing at 29% growth since 1993. Black enrollment dropped 14%. White enrollment fell 31%.

    Hispanic/Latino students now comprise 53.3% of the total California public school enrollment–much larger than the Hispanic/Latino share of the total California population.

    Here’s a link to Governor Perry’s 14-JUN-2013 signing statement and his line-item veto of the funds for Travis County. Dare I say it? It looks like Rick Perry might be a politician with ethics who shows actual leadership. Emphasis added in BOLD.

    SOURCE: http://governor.state.tx.us/news/veto/18674/

    “Article IV – The Judiciary

    Judiciary Section, Comptroller’s Department

    D.1.4 Strategy: PUBLIC INTEGRITY UNIT, $3,742,829 $3,830,597
    TRAVIS CO & UB
    Public Integrity Unit, 53rd Judicial District.

    Despite the otherwise good work the Public Integrity Unit’s employees, I CANNOT IN GOOD CONSCIENCE SUPPORT CONTINUED STATE FUNDING FOR AN OFFICE WITH STATEWIDE JURISDICTION AT A TIME WHEN THE PERSON CHARGED WITH ULTIMATE RESPONSIBILITY OF THAT UNIT HAS LOST THE PUBLIC’S CONFIDENCE. This unit is in no other way held accountable to state taxpayers, except through the State budgetary process. I therefore object to and disapprove of this appropriation.”

    Rick Perry vetoes funding to a D.A. in a “public integrity” unit who was arrested for a DUI and who refused to resign. There’s the arrest video. There’s Perry’s line-item veto statement listing his reasons. There’s the public record.

    If Perry has a half-way competent PR team, I’d think that Perry comes out looking like an anti-corruption star who took proper executive action. Let’s hope that Democrats make a lot of noise about this. It will damage their already worthless reputation.

    Washington Post had a good backgrounder on the case dating from May.

    You’ll have to forgive them. They’ve likely only seen the highly PhotoShopped perfect bodies in magazines.

    The real world is really going to smack them hard in the face someday.

    Of course vampires would be against Ted Cruz. Think about it.

    * Vampires hide and live their entire lives in self-imposed darkness, purposely avoiding the light.
    * Vampires can only survive by sucking the life force from others’ vitality.
    * Vampires are offended by the mere presence of a cross.

    Vampires are the near-perfect metaphor for the Progressive Left.

    Think about Blaze. It makes perfect sense for vampires on “True Blood” to vote Democrat.

    After all, vampires are blood-sucking parasites that live off others in order to survive. Tell me that vampires aren’t your stereotypical Democrat.

    When this story inevitably becomes a tragedy for some other family, whom does one sue within the federal government for gross negligence and dereliction of duty?

    A protest where nobody understands the message you’re attempting to convey isn’t a very effective protest.

    This should be no surprise.

    When in Congress, Hilda Olis was a member of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, whose policies are endorsed by the Democratic Socialists of American (DSA). The list of the current whackadoodles is listed below. Nancy Pelosi only left the group when she became Speaker of the House.
    http://cpc.grijalva.house.gov/caucus-members/

    Her nomination to Labor Secretary was warmly welcomed the SEIU, AFL-CIO, and the People’s World Daily, a publication of the Communist Party USA.
    http://www.peoplesworld.org/union-leaders-welcome-solis-choice-as-labor-secretary/

    It’s no surprise that Hilda Solis would engage in illegal activities while in office to further her far-Left ideology.

    The government’s hard drives fail so often, you might think that they’re being manufactured by the Obama Administration.

    Harry Reid, OBSTRUCTIONIST.

    Case is point: Border security.

    The House passed H.J.Res. 79: “Border Security and Enforcement Continuing Appropriations Resolution, 2014″ back on October 2013. It passed with bipartisan support; fully 58% of Representative votes in favor.

    It STILL awaits Harry Reid’s permission to receive a vote in the Senate.
    https://www.govtrack.us/congress/votes/113-2013/h540

    Who’s the REAL obstructionist, Mr. President?

    This explains why this ONE small four-person special ops team already in Libya didn’t respond, and the explanation is entirely plausible.

    So, why wasn’t there any other response from the REST of the the broad range of U.S. military and special operations forces in the region?

    C’mon, Blaze, you can dig deeper.

    It’s okay, Victoria Duran. By your own logic, you shouldn’t be able to harass those who oppose abortion because you apparently have no soul.

    The world has another term for such tolerant, reasonable Progressives: Jack-booted Thug!

    Our nearest Costco is located in Santa Cruz, CA, also known as the Progressive Disneyland.

    Despite the VERY left-wing politics of many of Santa Cruz’ residents, Costco always seems to carry a variety of conservative-leaning books, even including those by Glenn Beck.

    “America” the book came out long before the movie. Anybody who regularly shops at Costco knows that many products are sold for a relatively short time period. Here today, gone tomorrow. I’m not surprised by Costco’s decision strictly based on their business model.

    I don’t swing the same direction politically as do many in Costco’s management. However, they’re a good local employer who pays good wages. I’ve always been treated well by Costco and plan to continue shopping there.

    Regardless, you and Costco are both free to do whatever you want. They can choose not to sell D’Souza’s book. You can decide to buy it from any of dozens of other retailers. It’s how freedom works.

    As a business operating in the free market, Costco has the freedom to decide which products are or are not for sale in their store and for whatever reason they deem fit.

    Similarly, you have the freedom to shop elsewhere for products that Costco may or may not decide to carry.

    This is how freedom and free markets work.

    If you would like a copy of Dinesh D’Souza’s “America: Image a World without Her” book, it is available from these and other book sellers.

    Amazon
    http://www.amazon.com/America-Imagine-World-without-Her/dp/162157203X/

    Barnes & Noble
    http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/america-dinesh-dsouza/1119393975

    Walmart

    Target
    http://www.target.com/p/america-imagine-a-world-without-her-by-dinesh-d-souza-hardcover/-/A-15681755

    Who knows? Costco’s decision may actually help boost sales of D’Souza’s book.

    If you haven’t already done so, I recommend seeing “America” the movie, currently playing at a theater near you. I think you’ll enjoy it.

    To Sally Kohn (@sallykohn_, “illegal” is the Left’s new ‘N’ word. May I suggest other “N’ words like “inept”, “infantile”, “incompetent”, & “indicted”?

    In reply to the story Is the 'I-Word' the New 'N-Word'?
