House GOP Plans To Save Obama With Immigration Reform
Posted 01/21/2014 05:00 PM ET
Immigration: President Obama expects House Republicans to jump-start his presidency by embracing amnesty for illegal aliens. But if it does, the GOP could wreck its chances to take back the Senate.
Republicans should own the issue of immigration. After all, the last time — 1986 — the Reid as Majority Leader, and the No. 1 thing Republicans could do to mess that up is to refuse to stand for principle,” Cruz told Houston’s Michael Berry radio show.

Rand Paul Backs Amnesty If Illegals Can’t Vote Immediately
Excerpted from The HillSen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) on Sunday said immigration reform legislation could quickly get through Congress, if Democrats are willing to meet Republicans “halfway” on key issues.
“Are you willing to try to bring the 11 million people who are here, bring them out of the shadows, give them an existence, try to be more humane, and try to get a better situation for them? That could happen tomorrow,” Paul said on ABC’s “This Week.”
“The problem is, is the sticking point going to be we have to have immediate voting privileges for those who came here illegally,” Paul added. “If the Democrats are willing to come halfway, I think we can pass some meaningful reform.” Read the whole thing

Mexican man awaits execution for officer’s death

Texas Executes Illegal Alien Cop Killer — Despite Pleas from Mexico and John Kerry
by John Urban | Top Right News
[Ed. note: we mistakenly reported the execution earlier, based upon an incorrect AP wire. They retracted the story and we held off…until now!]
Finally — the depraved murderer is gone.
After a disgraceful wait of 20 years since Edgar Arias Tamayo murdered Houston police officer Guy P. Gaddis in 1994, and despite repeated pleas from U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and demands from the Mexican government, Tamayo was finally executed minutes ago by lethal injection.
Although his execution was originally scheduled for 6pm Texas time Wednesday evening, an Obama-appointed judge senselessly threw the case up to the U.S. Supreme Court to review his absurd “appeals” (based solely on the “consular” nonsense — Tamayo has never denied his guilt).
Finally at 9pm EST, the Supreme Court denied his appeals, 6-3, and the execution was on. At 9:32 Tamayo was finally put down.
If you’re one of the more than 100,000 people who have read our reports of the shameful attempts by Kerry, Mexico and the U.N. to browbeat Texas into sparing the life of this snake, then you will know how deserved was Tamayo’s punishment.
What is truly sad is that Officer Gaddis’ family had to wait so long when the facts and guilt of Tamayo were never in dispute — only ridiculous international politics.
