The addition of 171,000 jobs in October according to Friday's employment report is moderately good news for President Obama in the final days before the election. But the jobs picture might not be such good news for Americans, the Center for Immigration Studies reported last week.
Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano announced October 24 that about 200,000 young illegal immigrants have applied to defer their deportation, and more than 3,000 young illegals are applying every day under the Obama administration’s new immigration policy.
The mayor of Lewiston, Maine, is in hot water for telling immigrant Somalis that when they land in his city, he expects them to shed their native culture and become Americans.
The remarks have sent leftists in the state into a rage, demanding that Mayor Robert MacDonald resign.

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.

An illegal alien who became a citizen and multi-millionaire grocery tycoon is in trouble with “activists” because he is using the federal E-Verify program to check whether prospective employees are illegal aliens.
The new federal program that provides temporary work permits to young illegal immigrants is provoking different responses from the states. While some states assert that the status created by the new program does not make undocumented workers eligible for various benefits, others such as California are embracing the directive and granting driver's licenses to those who qualify under the new guidelines.
In a wide-ranging interview with Alex Pareene of Salon.com, Libertarian Party candidate for president Gary Johnson said the Republican Party's platform plank on immigration "borders on racist."
