Nearly 300 activists with a leftist, pro-immigration group marched on the Kansas secretary of state's home over the weekend, dropping shoes on his lawn that they said belonged to "the fathers he's deported."
The immigration debate may be ramping up in Washington but it's chilled in the states, where the crackdown fervor of two years ago has given way to a cautious approach amid changing political currents and court decisions.
Did you know that the uberclean United Nations, whose blue-helmeted troops have been charged with everything from rape to theft in Third World countries, is going to have an affiliate help us run our elections?
Amid the attacks and countercharges in Tuesday's debate, Mitt Romney appeared to make some news in saying he will seek to create ways to grant a path to citizenship to younger illegal immigrants brought here as children.
Moving to soften his immigration stance ever so slightly, Mitt Romney said this week he will not immediately deport the illegal immigrants granted tentative legal status by President Obama — and the Republican nominee also set a soft deadline for getting a broader immigration bill done in 18 months.
Democrats broke yet another barrier Wednesday when they invited an illegal immigrant young adult onto the stage at their nominating convention in Charlotte — part of a historic Hispanic outreach program that the party hopes will cement ties to the fast-growing ethnic voting bloc in the country.
For most voters, the Republicans' nominating convention has been filled with speeches about jobs, the economy, federal spending and President Obama's record. But for Hispanic voters getting their news from the Spanish-language press, the view is very different — and decidedly unsympathetic to the Republican Party.
Mitt Romney has spent much of this year's campaign attacking President Obama's economic record and attitude toward small businesses, but many in his party are beginning to warn him that he will have to focus more on his own qualifications to win this fall.
The difficulties Mitt Romney faces in wooing Hispanic voters this year were underscored Tuesday when the Republicans' top Hispanic outreach official said the former Massachusetts governor is "still deciding" his position on immigration.
Republicans underscored their difficulties in wooing Latino voters in this year's elections on Tuesday when the party's top Hispanic outreach official said it was unclear what likely presidential nominee Mitt Romney's stance would be on the critical issue of immigration.
The Supreme Court's health care showdown last month was all about Constitution theory and prerogatives. Wednesday's arguments between Arizona and the Obama administration over the state's tough immigration law looks to be all about power.
With this weekend's endorsement by Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, Mitt Romney has amassed the backing of what could be considered the trifecta of hard-liners on illegal immigration — and he will put that to the test with Hispanic voters Tuesday in Arizona's GOP primary.
A federal judge on Monday rejected a portion of a Nebraska city's ordinance that would have denied housing permits to illegal immigrants but upheld a requirement that employers verify the citizenship status of people they hire.
The Republican Party is beefing up its minority outreach nationwide and preparing to put its rising Latino stars on the campaign trail amid concerns that tough immigration rhetoric in the presidential primary is taking on an increasingly anti-Hispanic tone.
A normally obscure board in Kansas unanimously approved new regulations Thursday for abortion providers, moving the state closer to becoming the first in the nation without a clinic or doctor's office performing the procedures.
Kris Kobach, a law professor who helped write Arizona's legislation, said the suit was "a kitchen sink kind of complaint" that relies on piling up charges and hoping a court agrees with some of them.
"I think it's backfiring on the administration and on the open-borders crowd who thought that they could use this law as a rallying point for the upcoming elections," Mr. Kobach said.
