Immigration

A website in North Carolina alleged last week that the brother of disgraced U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder employs illegal aliens at his business.

William Holder, who owns four McDonald's franchises in Wake County, North Carolina, denied that he hires illegal workers, although the Carolina Journal Online alleged that a reporter was party to conversations at which employees admitted they were in the country illegally and did not have permission to work here.

 

As part of an effort to encourage Mexicans living in the United States to enroll in the federal food stamp program, U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) employees have met with Mexican officials over 150 times in the past eight years, the Daily Caller reports. The result: an enormous increase in the number of noncitizens participating in the program and a concomitant rise in federal spending and debt.

Although his website says he’ll “enforce the law” and “address the 11 million illegal immigrants in America in a civil and resolute manner that respects the rule of law,” GOP candidate Mitt Romney will honor President Obama’s recent amnesty for “young” illegal aliens.

U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton signed an order on Tuesday allowing Arizona police to begin immediately enforcing the provision of the state's immigration law SB 1070 that requires them to check the immigration status of individuals whom they lawfully stop. Fox News reports that the ruling is “the latest milestone in a two-year legal battle over the requirement [that] culminated in a U.S. Supreme Court decision in June that upheld the provision on the grounds that it doesn’t conflict with federal law.”

The National Dream University, a branch of UCLA set up to educate illegal aliens and turn them into immigration activists, won’t open its doors, thanks to pressure from a lawmaker who didn’t think it was such a bright idea.
