The Daily Beast's story (mentioned by Derb below) bashing Jason Richwine for saying Hispanic immigrants have low IQ is illustrated with this picture:
This is no Joke. H/T One Old Vet
Working my way through the intimidating backlog of One Old Vet’s Amnesty news compendiums accumulated since I last wrote on them, I find in Friday’s 57-strong collection the transcript of Rush Limbaugh’s interview with Marco Rubio EIB Interview: Why, Senator Rubio? April 18, 2013 rushlimbaugh.com
In this Limbaugh, who really understands the immigration issue, asked an extremely penetrating question:
The last time you were here, you were very certain -- you assured everybody -- that until the border was secure, there would not be legalization of a pathway to citizenship. Now people who've seen the bill say that what actually happens is that the legalization does take place and that then there's a commission that has 10 years to figure out border security.
Which is true?
(The bill had actually been made public at 2-25AM (!) that morning)
Rubio dealt with this awkward query by lying:
The Department of Homeland Security has …the following goal: a hundred percent awareness of border, 90% apprehension. They have five years to meet that standard. If in five years the border is not 90% apprehension, 100% awareness, they lose control of the border issue to a commission that is not a Washington commission. It is a commission that will largely be driven by the governors of the border states.
(VDARE.com emphasis). As I noted yesterday in Gang Bill Omits Empowered Border Commission Rubio Promised - Will He Denounce? Byron York has demonstrated that this is just not true. The Commission – on which the Border Governors will only be a minority if they are on it at all – is not structured to assume legal power over anything, ever.
Byron York writes in the Washington Examiner:

Given the enormity of the changes that would result from comprehensive immigration reform, Senate Democrats wouldn't try to rush a bill through the Judiciary Committee before the public gets a chance to know what's in it -- would they?

For almost 12 years, a Houston elementary school teacher and an illegal immigrant living in Topeka have engaged in a tug of war to claim the identity of Candida L. Gutierrez in a case that has put a face on the growing crime of "total identity theft" in the United States. [Woman gets prison time in 'total identity theft', March 25, 2013]
Illegal Alien Crossers Reported Surrendering To Local Border Patrol Agents—Why Not? They Expect Obama To Release Them!
According to The Monitor ("Serving the Rio Grande Valley Since 1909"):
Illegal immigrants have started surrendering to local Border Patrol agents after crossing the Rio Grande, convinced they’ll be released by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, which recently turned hundreds of immigrants loose to save money.
Rep. Candice Miller (R-MI), was holding a hearing that was called "What does a Secure Border Look Like?"
I don't know—no American has ever seen one.
S Adelson: "My orders are, swing Left!"
Could it be that all this hoop-la about the GOP being more open to Amnesty aka “immigration reform” and Minority Outreach generally reflects not a (highly questionable) reaction to the 2012 election but simply the fact that unprecedented amounts of cash are being been made available to those willing to sing the Treason Lobby song?

AAN officials described the campaign in detail to POLITICO, outlining how the organization aims to drum up support for both immigration legislation and Republican budget proposals in the coming months.

Sequester malevolence is exploding all around the big capitol city, even though the reduction in the rate of spending increases hasn’t even started yet.
As reported in these electrons on Monday (see Sequester Savings: Jailbird Illegal Aliens Released into America), ICE freed a mystery number of jailed foreign criminals to save money that has not yet been restricted.
The intervening time has brought more details. A report from Texas says that “several hundred” illegals have been freed from that state.
In Arizona’s Pinal County, Sheriff Paul Babeu reported that ICE released more than 500 alien detainees in that county alone over the weekend.
The President’s jihad against public safety elicited strong words from leading Republicans. Perhaps they are learning that the open borders revolutionaries do not operate in good faith.
Rep. Bob Goodlatte, the new Chair of the House Judiciary Committee, issued a press release on Feb 26:
“It’s abhorrent that President Obama is releasing criminals
