Obama's non-enforcement policy regarding illegal immigrants should NEVER supersede federal law; and those border patrol agents should re-read the law and the consequences for violations: The Federal Immigration and Nationality Act, Section 8 USC 1324(a)(1)(A)(iv)(b)(iii) states: “Any person who…encourages or induces an alien to… reside…knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that such… residence is…in violation of law, shall be punished as provided…for each alien in respect to whom such a violation occurs… fined under title 18…imprisoned not more than 5 years, or both.” Section 274 FELONIES under the federal Immigration and Nationality Act, INA 274A(a)(1)(A): A person (also a group of persons, business, organization, or local government) commits a federal felony when she or he: * assists an alien s/he should reasonably know is illegally in the U. S. or who lacks employment authorization, by transporting, sheltering, or assisting him or her to obtain employment, or * encourages that alien to remain in the U.S. by referring him or her to an employer or by acting as employer or agent for an employer in any way, or * knowingly assists illegal aliens due to personal convictions. Penalties upon conviction include criminal fines, imprisonment, and forfeiture of vehicles and real property used to commit the crime. Anyone employing or contracting with an illegal alien without verifying his or her work authorization status is guilty of a misdemeanor. Aliens and employers violating immigration laws are subject to arrest, detention, and seizure of their vehicles or property. In addition, individuals or entities who engage in racketeering enterprises that commit (or conspire to commit) immigration-related felonies are subject to private civil suits for treble damages and injunctive relief.

What is wrong wth the federal government (other than the corrupt nature of our current leadership) that makes anyone believe that it is somehow "OK" to ignore one of the very few responsibilities that is mandated by our Constitution..."to provide for the common defense" and protect our citizenry from invasion. And that definitely includes securing the borders against ILLEGAL entry. Just considering the millions of foreign nationals who have already entered America WITHOUT permission, it DOES constitute an invasion; and surely, some of those DO want to import "terror" to our soil. The full Senate should absolutely reject Obama's nominee to be the next Attorney General, because she has already testified to the Judiciary Committee that illegal aliens have a "right" to work in the U.S. What a load of "Bravo Sierra." Here's what her position should be: “Every sovereign nation has the authority to determine who can be a citizen and who can be present within its borders. As the nation’s former chief law enforcement officer, and a citizen who believes in the rule of law, I cannot condone anyone coming into this country illegally. We are a nation of laws. When people fail to follow the law with impunity, it encourages further disobedience and breeds disrespect for the rule of law; and that is not America.” -- Alberto Gonzales, the nation’s 80th Attorney General, speech to the Austin (TX) Economics Club. Where there is no penalty for violations, what benefit is the law?
I really wish that Mr. Grassley had asked Ms. Lynch if she agreed with the following: “Every sovereign nation has the authority to determine who can be a citizen and who can be present within its borders. As the nation’s former chief law enforcement officer, and a citizen who believes in the rule of law, I cannot condone anyone coming into this country illegally. We are a nation of laws.

The only way that I would like to see any more pictures of Lerner would be if she were in handcuffs, wearing an orange jumpsuit and being hauled off to federal prison.
For as long as there are close to 50% (or more) eligible voters in America who are also receiving some form of taxpayer-financed assistance, paid from the federal and state treasuries, Democrat "Santa Clauses" will continue to be elected in certain precincts, districts, states and even nationally. Sad, but true! (If it waddles and quacks like a "vote-buying duck," it is a "vote-buying duck.")

Will Brian Williams Lose His Job?

Brian Williams (aka: Mr. Embellishment) should be given the option to quit or retire ("to spend more time with his family"). He could hang out, play a litle golf with the President, and work on his tan for about 6 months. After that, I'm sure he could get a job offer from the New York Times, HuffPo, CNN, or maybe even Al Jazerra. (None of these outlets seem to put a very high value on the journalistic integrity of those who represent them publicly.
The hole has more integrity.
It wouldn't matter. Her short-term memory is shot.
I'd put good money down on dementia, Coyote9 ... Oh, if we could just get a judge to order an involuntary commitment for long enough to perform a professional evaluation.
Blame the ignorance (and the ideology) of the voters who elected her.
