Laura Meckler -- Wall Street Journal -- February 1  
Defining Border Security Key to Talks
GOP Senators Fear a New Illegal Influx, and Democrats Worry a Vague Bill Would Delay Citizenship
    How to determine whether the U.S. border with Mexico is secure has emerged as a central battle among senators writing an overhaul of immigration laws.
    The senators working on the legislation, four Democrats and four Republicans, say that many of the 11 million people living in the nation illegally should have the chance to become U.S. citizens. But their proposal says that opportunity is "contingent on securing the border'' first, and that security provisions must be "complete.'' They disagree, however, over how to measure those goals.
WSJ's Laura Meckler should talk to Glenn Spencer
    The GOP Senators are right --- a new amnesty would bring a surge across the border. Democrats are wrong --- a system to measure border security could be in place in three months.
    Glenn Spencer sent this e-mail to Laura Meckler, the author of the WSJ story early this morning.
    He asked her to call him about the ABP's plan to measure border security.
    Please send an e-mail to Laura Meckler ( laura.meckler@wsj.com ) asking her to contact Glenn Spencer.
    That's all --- just call him. TEL: 520-803-7703
Please do this today.

For illegals, path to citizenship hinges on definition of border security   
With a bipartisan group of senators joining forces, the so-called "Gang of Eight" this week made dreams of immigration reform appear on the horizon. President Obama has already listed a plan for America's 11 million people living in the shadows as a "top priority" for his second term, and his hawkish approach on enforcement has helped enlist Republicans. But as the Gang of Eight proposal stands, the fate of possible citizenship...

3 biggest lies about amnesty bills   
This is really hard. It is very difficult to talk about only three lies when it is such a target-rich environment. -- The most obvious lie is that "this time we will get it right and not repeat the mistakes of the 1986 amnesty." We can call it a lie and not just misleading because not one person making that claim really believes it can be done. It's false advertising, and they know it...

Alexander Bolton -- The Hill     
Senate plan would give 'Big Sis' the final say on border security   
Under a bipartisan Senate framework, Democrats say, Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano would have final say over whether the border is secure enough to put 11 million illegal [aliens] on a path to citizenship. -- If Napolitano does not provide the green light for putting illegal [aliens] on a pathway to citizenship, the responsibility for judging whether the metrics for border security have been met...

Dubious groups claim Border Patrol offer cash for illegals   
It's money for [illegal aliens] at the U.S. Border Patrol, according to two [illegal alien "rights"] groups. -- A report by New York-based [illegal alien "rights"] group Families for Freedom (FFF) and New York University's Immigrant Rights Clinic claims the Border Patrol encourages its agents to apprehend [illegal aliens] through various incentive programs that include cash bonuses, vacation awards, and gift cards from stores...

ICE Agents: Trumka doesn't speak for us on immigration reform   
The union representing immigration officials who protect the border against illegal crossings, drug smuggling and human trafficking blasted the White House and the nation's top labor boss this week for denying their concerns about dangerous border conditions even existing. -- AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka this week angered the rank and file members of the National ICE Council when the labor giant denied...

40 million illegal aliens in 2038?   
We have all been warned against making predictions about the future. But if the future reflects the past the figure below shows what could happen to the size of the illegal alien population in 2038, 25 years from now, if the current group of 11 million illegals becomes legalized under the Obama plan. -- It is clear that the one-time legalization of three million illegal aliens by the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986...

Will Rubio pull out of the Gang of Eight now?    
Senator Rubio has been making a big deal of the border enforcement "trigger" that would have to be met before the amnestied illegals would be able to move from their immediately-issued green-card-lite status to a full green card. I thinks that's a mistake for a whole variety of reasons, but at least he seems to genuinely believe in the trigger idea. Well, Senator Schumer dumped a bucket of cold water on that...

Police seeking public's help to locate escaped illegal alien   
Illegal [alien] 27-year-old Erubia Moreno escaped from the custody of U.S. Border Patrol early Thursday when the agency's transport vehicle slowed at the intersection of State Route 95 and Swanson Ave. -- Lake Havasu City Police Department said it is unknown how Moreno disengaged the locking mechanism of the vehicle to escape.
