New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie held a ceremonial signing Tuesday to highlight his approval of the state's new Dream Act law granting illegal immigrants in-state tuition, in a move that signals immigration will once again be a major issue in the 2016 presidential primaries.
House Speaker John A. Boehner announced Tuesday he has hired a longtime advocate of immigration legalization to be his policy adviser, encouraging immigration activists but angering those who want to see a crackdown and who say Mr. Boehner's move signals he still wants an "amnesty" bill to pass.
The debate is raging over whether the latest immigration bill is an amnesty for illegal immigrants, but one part is clear: The legislation would forgive businesses that have employed those immigrants illegally.
Authorities have shut down an upscale, two-story house after discovering a makeshift maternity clinic crammed with 10 newborns and a dozen Chinese women who paid as much as $35,000 to travel to Southern California to give birth to children who would automatically be U.S. citizens, a newspaper reported Thursday.
Americans are already pouring humanitarian aid into Haiti, but the next question for President Obama will be whether to grant temporary legal residence to tens of thousands of illegal immigrants and legal visitors from Haiti.
Mr. Krikorian said the immigration debate in the GOP will depend in part on whether anyone emerges who is willing to buck big-dollar donors and run on a more populist message that includes cracking down on illegal immigration.
Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies, which wants to see an immigration crackdown, said Mr. Christie's signature will likely be an issue in a presidential contest, most likely as confirmation for many voters of his "relative liberalism from a Republican perspective."
