Napolitano Gives Away $5 Million to Illegal Aliens
“Undocumented immigrants admitted to the University of California will be eligible for $5 million in services under a program announced on Wednesday, the latest in a series of moves to expand immigrant rights in the country’s most populous state. Former U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano, now president of the 10-campus U.C. system, set aside the funding as one of her first acts in her new job, calling it a down payment on the state’s commitment to all of its residents,” Fox News Latino reports.
“The money for the new programs would come from discretionary funds that are not provided by the state and would be used to pay for advisers, student services centers and financial aid, Napolitano said.”
House Leader Says He Opposes Conference With Senate
“A key House Republican said Wednesday that he was urging his leadership to back off any formal negotiations with the Senate on immigration reform, reflecting a growing refusal from the GOP to reconcile the Gang of Eight legislation with any immigration bill that the House may pass,” Politico reported.
“Texas Rep. Michael McCaul, who chairs the House Homeland Security Committee, has been advocating for a bipartisan border-security bill that cleared his panel with unanimous support in May. That bill has lagged on the way to the House floor since, but McCaul indicated that his legislation isn’t meant to be a jumping-off point for broader discussions on overhauling the nation’s immigration laws.”
Obamacare Is a Preview of How Amnesty Will Work
“Last week, the president signaled that his newest project will be immigration reform. As an immigrant myself, I understand the need for reform. However, I also understand that immigration reform has to have rules and regulations that allow for the civil and orderly entry of people who want to come to this country to be Americans,” says Dr. Manny Alvarez at FoxNews.
“One of my biggest worries is that every time the Obama administration creates a law, it tends to implement parts of that law as they see fit, and then changes its tactics, depending on how the political winds are blowing. There are numerous examples of this flip-flopping ranging from how the administration has dealt with foreign policy in the Middle East, to how it handled ObamaCare.”
