Attorney General: Group Used Inaccurate Leaked Draft Report To Name ND Sanctuary State

Over the last week or so I’ve been writing (see here, here, and here) about a Center for Immigration Studies report which named North Dakota a “sanctuary state” which does not cooperate with federal efforts to deport illegal immigrants. The problem is, CIS got it wrong, and I can now report how they got it

Cringeworthy Video: Center For Immigration Studies Destroys Its Credibility

Over the last week or so (see here and here) I’ve been working to clear up a massive amount of confusion created by the Center for Immigration Studies, an anti-illegal immigration group, when they tagged North Dakota as a “sanctuary state” which doesn’t cooperate with federal detainers for illegal immigrants.

Does The Immigration Bill Create An Incentive To Hire Illegal Immigrants Under Obamacare?

“Under Obamacare, businesses with over 50 workers that employ American citizens without offering them qualifying health insurance could be subject to fines of up to $3,000 per worker,” reports Phil Klein for the Washington Examiner. “But because newly legalized immigrants wouldn’t be eligible for subsidies on the Obamacare exchanges until after they become citizens –
