Ted Cruz: A GOP Led Congress Will Expose an Obstructionist Obama
(USA Today) - By all signs, Americans are preparing to send Washington a clear message in the 2014 elections.

Here are ten critical priorities for the 2015 Congress:
First, embrace a big pro-jobs, growth agenda. For six years, the Obama economy has been trapped in stagnation, hurting millions.

Part of that preparation includes a new focus on asylum requests and clearing the backlog of 400,000 claims.
Noting this year’s historic wave of immigrants across the Mexico-U.S. border, Rodriguez said, “In order to process individuals more efficiently at the border, the unaccompanied children presenting claims, we have had to redeploy, we’re also hiring more asylum officers.” He added, “We do have a lot of work to catch up.”
In introducing Rodriguez at the 11th annual immigration law and policy conference hosted by Georgetown Law School, Donald Kerwin, executive director for the Center for Migration Studies, put the year-long surge of undocumented youths at 130,000...(MORE)
