For years Arizona sought Washington solutions to illegal immigration. The state finally acted unilaterally because the federal government failed to respond to the growing border crisis.
Now, Washington’s belated response wastes money and does nothing to address the broken border.
President Obama’s finally agreed to meet with Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer on Thursday.
During the 30-minute discussion, Brewer refused to back down from implementing the state’s new illegal immigration law. While Brewer stood firm, the President conceded that the “majority” of the 1,200 National Guard troops he decided to send to the border will go to Arizona.
Even if it gets the Arizona the majority of the new resources, the state will share the President’s token election-year response of troops and $500 million dollars with Texas, New Mexico and California.
Yes, the President of the United States really believes ‘ordinary people‘ are that stupid, will take his word at face value, and have no need to read between his lines.
President Barack Obama says the addition of 431,000 new jobs in May shows “the economy is getting stronger by the day.” A burst of census hiring lifted payrolls last month, and the unemployment rate dipped to 9.7 percent.
431,000 new jobs were added in May, and roughly 90% of those paychecks will be paid by us.
Temporary census jobs accounted for 411,000 of the May increase in payrolls, leaving the ex-census figure at 20,000. The decrease in joblessness last month reflected a 322,000 drop in the labor force as Americans grew discouraged over hiring prospects.
NEWARK — Two New Jersey men intent on killing American troops were arrested Saturday as they boarded flights to link up with a virulent jihadist group in Somalia, authorities said.
The men, both North Jersey residents, were charged with conspiring to commit an act of international terrorism through a group tied to Osama bin Laden’s al Qaeda network, according to officials familiar with the details of the arrests.
Mohamed Hamoud Alessa, 20, of North Bergen, and Carlos Eduardo “Omar” Almonte, 24, of Elmwood Park were apprehended at John F. Kennedy International Airport in Queens before they could board separate flights to Egypt, where they were to start journeys to Somalia. The men were arrested by teams of state and federal law-enforcement agents who have been investigating the pair since October 2006, according to the officials, who requested anonymity because they are not authorized to discuss the operation publicly.
