Michael Savage urged his listeners this week to support Republican congressional candidates in November in hopes that a GOP-controlled Congress will order the arrest of President Obama. The right-wing talk radio host said on Tuesday that a potential executive action to defer deportation proceedings against some undocumented immigrants amounts to “criminal activity” that should trigger an attempt by Republicans to arrest the president “for usurping the Constitution and Congress.” Savage later declared that if the president were to take such an action, it would amount...

Anti-immigrant activists William Gheen of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC and James Neighbors of Overpasses for America warned yesterday that if President Obama takes executive action to prevent the deportation of certain undocumented immigrants, they will respond with “60s era sit-ins” and chain themselves to the doors of government offices charged with distributing identification documents. Gheen and Neighbors, who are teaming up with a number of groups including Numbers USA and the anti-Obama Two Million Bikers to D.C. this weekend to hold a series of protests linking... MORE

In an interview with Newsmax today, Rep. Steve King warned that an executive action by President Obama providing deportation relief for some undocumented immigrants living in the United States would perhaps irrevocably destroy “our constitutional republic” by turning the United States into a “lawless third-world nation” and Obama into a “king.” “If the American people take that sitting down or lying down, then our constitutional republic has been destroyed to the point where putting it back together again in our lifetime looks to me like it’s a...

Donald Trump travelled to Iowa to campaign for Rep. Steve King this past weekend, and their joint press conference was just about as ridiculous as you might imagine. The two heaped praise on one another, with Trump calling King “a special guy” and “a smart person with really the right views on almost everything” and King gushing that “time after time, when the hand of Donald Trump reached out and touched something, it turned into something good for America.” And they tried to outdo each other with criticism of President Obama, as Trump evaded questions...

William Gheen’s Americans for Legal Immigration PAC and James Neighbors of Overpasses for America, the crack team that brought us this summer’s sparsely attended and unabashedly xenophobic protests against Central American children, are back with another round this weekend, this time attempting to tie undocumented immigrants to the Ebola virus. In an email alert that went out to Gheen’s activist list yesterday with the subject line “New National Wave of Protests Against Obama, Illegla Immigration, & Ebola,” Gheen and Neighbors announce that a “new...

Over the past several weeks, anti-immigration groups have jumped on the Ebola crisis in an effort to push their own cause, using the disease to stir up generalized xenophobic fears of disease-ridden foreigners. In an interview with Janet Mefferd yesterday, the Federation for Immigration Reform’s Ira Mehlman called for a travel ban from West African countries facing Ebola outbreaks — a move that experts warn would do nothing to stop the spread of the disease and might even make it worse. After Mehlman attempted to connect the Ebola crisis with undocumented immigration, saying... MORE

Donald Trump appeared on “The Steve Deace Show” this week to discuss his upcoming fundraiser on behalf of Rep. Steve King, who is facing a tight re-election battle. After lashing out at President Obama’s fondness for golf, claiming that the president shows “a level of arrogance that’s absolutely disgusting,” Trump said that he was attracted to King’s hardline anti-immigrant stance. “He’s opposed to amnesty, secure the border, which is another one that’s like a no-brainer that I don’t understand, there are certain things you don...
