Immigration order’s economic impact probably minimal, possibly negative
WASHINGTON — Will 5 million unauthorized immigrants start pushing U.S. citizens out of their jobs now? Will they start getting government benefits and draining city hall budgets? Or will they start moving up the ladder, paying taxes and giving a boost to the economy? President Barack Obama’s decision to protect them from deportation and allow them to apply for work permits actually is likely to produce none of those scenarios. It packs little economic punch because the immigrants are already here and the reprieve is only temporary. Dallas Morning News

How Tennessee's Lamar Alexander would fix Obamacare
When Republicans officially take control of the Senate at the start of 2015, U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) will land the role of chairman on the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor & Pensions. Since Alexander hails from a state where health care is, in many ways, king, I chatted with the senator Wednesday morning to get a sense of what he'd like to see happen to the Affordable Care Act under a Republican-controlled Congress. "Obviously we would prefer to repeal and replace this. And there will probably be a vote and I will vote for it," Alexander said. He added, though, that it's very unlikely Barack Obama would sign a law repealing the signature health reform bill that colloquially bears his name. Nashville Business Journal

SC HAS ITS OWN CONSTITUTIONAL CRISIS
If you Google “constitutional crisis” these days, chances are you’ll find a flood of articles related to U.S. President Barack Obama‘s dictatorial effort to rewrite America’s immigration laws. We don’t necessarily disagree with everything Obama is trying to do, mind you, but we emphatically rebuke the manner in which he is trying to do it. Fitsnews.com

In San Antonio, Ambitions Rise for Hispanic Democrats
In the beginning, there were two Henrys. Henry B. González made history in 1961 by becoming the first Hispanic from Texas elected to the U.S. House of Representatives. Twenty years later, Henry Cisneros followed, becoming the first Hispanic mayor of a major U.S. city when he was elected to lead San Antonio in 1981. Texas Tribune

Meet the Fortune 500 Companies Funding the Political Resegregation of America
Over the past four to five years, the United States has been resegregated—politically. In states where registered Democrats outnumber Republicans and presidential races can be nail-biters, skillful Republican operatives have mounted racially-minded gerrymandering efforts—the redrawing of congressional and state legislative districts—that have led to congressional delegations stacked with GOP members and yielded Republican majorities in the state legislatures.

Every President’s Executive Orders In One Chart
President Obama is due to announce an executive action Thursday, one that will change the legal status of millions of immigrants and is likely to be remembered as a major effort to change the country’s immigration system. The action would reportedly allow up to 4 million undocumented immigrants legal work status, and an additional 1 million protection from deportation.

This is our annual "Made in the South" issue and it's timely because there is a new player in the South's manufacturing universe. For almost two decades, economic developers and politicos in the South and the U.S. have been chasing Chinese projects with little or nothing to show. Want proof we've been chasing ghosts in China for years? Okay, go ahead and name a Chinese brand that's made in the South? Tick. . .tick. . .tick. Give up?
