Supreme Court Ruling On Illegal Immigration A Victory For Trump

June 28, 2020 by


By Hans von Spakovsky and Cully Stimson ~ In a victory for border security that will help the federal government regain control over the immigration process, the Supreme Court has upheld commonsense rules used by the Trump administration to effectively deter illegal immigrants from making false asylum claims. The 7-2 ruling by the high court Thursday allows the […]

California Officials Back Trump On Crackdown On ‘Sanctuary’ Policies

May 17, 2018 by


By Fred Lucas ~ California law enforcement and local officials gathered at the White House on Wednesday to make it clear that Sacramento doesn’t speak for them on illegal immigration. The Democrat-controlled state Legislature passed and Gov. Jerry Brown, a Democrat, signed a “sanctuary state” law that prohibits state and local law enforcement from cooperating […]

Wall On Northern Border Needed Soon?

December 21, 2017 by


By Lt. Colonel James G. Zumwalt, USMC (RET) ~ An interesting dichotomy is evolving across our northern border. It is doubtful Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau grasps the realities of what is occurring as it will take several decades for the impact of his initiatives to fully manifest themselves. Of course, by then, a new […]

Sanctuary Cities

March 11, 2017 by


By Edward Cline ~ A “sanctuary city” is no more than a haven for criminals and illegals. I don’t think we need to flaunt the definition of “criminal.” An illegal, however, is a person living in the U.S. who entered it illegally, and collects government benefits, may or may not hold a job, and may […]

Silicon Valley: Brilliant, Greedy And Naive

February 11, 2017 by


By William R. Hawkins ~ The massive opposition to President Donald Trump’s executive order pausing for a few months immigration from seven war-torn countries, failed states and adversarial regimes seems totally irrational. Normal partisanship cannot account for the extreme rhetoric and violent actions that erupted within hours of the order being issued. What, after all, […]

The Day The Music Died

May 27, 2015 by


By Marlin  Thompson ~ In his iconic 1971 song, American Pie, Don McLean wrote the line “The day the music died”. The day the music died for the United States of America was June 15, 2012. On that day, President Barack Obama announced that his administration would violate the Constitution and stop deporting young undocumented […]

Immigration Reform Becomes A Priority…Again

January 13, 2015 by


By Alan Caruba ~ Every few years immigration becomes a political issue and, in truth, it has always been an issue in the minds of generations of Americans from its earliest years. Initially, those who were here, largely from England, wanted others like them, but America was a dynamic place spreading West and with a […]

Obama Wants Conservatives To Self-Cannibalize Over His Executive Action On Immigration

November 8, 2014 by


By Mike Gonzalez ~ Having received a walloping in the elections, President Obama has promised to double down by tearing the country apart over illegal immigration. “I’ve shown a lot of patience,” he said with characteristic conceit at Wednesday’s contrition-free press conference. Make no mistake. It will be the opening salvo of a two-year campaign […]

Obama’s Amnesty Travesty

October 30, 2014 by


By Alan Caruba ~ People really need to read the U.S. Constitution. It says, “All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States.” The Constitution makes no reference whatever to executive orders (EO). George Washington started the practice mostly because he had to. Traditionally executive orders have been treated […]

Aliens Are Not Immigrants

July 9, 2014 by


By Tom McLaughlin ~ Were you to draw a picture of the United States, it would show the familiar outline of our borders with Maine sticking out at the top right, Florida on the bottom right, Texas in the south, and so on. But what’s a border? It’s a boundary within which people declare, uphold, […]

How Amnesty Talk Makes The Illegal Immigration Situation Worse

June 28, 2014 by


By James Carafano Ph.D.~ Tony Snow was dying. But the White House press secretary, still determined to serve his president, returned to work as long as his cancer was in remission. Many thankless tasks awaited the former Fox News journalist. One of them was brokering meetings with conservative leaders — asking them to “hear out” […]

Immigration Bedlam

June 17, 2014 by


By Deroy Murdock ~ Chaos. That summarizes the situation on America’s southern frontier, as well as Obama’s freeing of almost 104,000 illegal-alien criminals last year. He clearly doesn’t give a damn about shielding Americans from the public-health and public-safety dangers posed by those who breach the border, including deadly felons now walking American streets. Waves […]

Meet The Senator Who Has Most Vigorously Opposed Amnesty

February 2, 2014 by


By James Carafano Ph.D.~ Last year, when the “Gang of Eight” immigration bill headed to the Senate floor, Jeff Sessions (pictured at right) filed no less than 15 amendments. It was pretty clear the junior senator from Alabama was out to kill the bill. In person Sessions doesn’t look like the bill-slayer type. Polite and […]

Australian Media Stunned. Prime Minister Tony Abbott Not The Bungler In Indonesia They Falsely Claimed

October 2, 2013 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ Paul Kelly on the Tony Abbott the media has grievously underestimated – a pragmatic man who, I believe, will be highly effective and never intended to be the unilateralist even Kelly portrays: In Jakarta, Abbott reached out to Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono in a personal, deferential and strategic sense. The […]

Cantor: Immigration Legislation Isn’t Written Yet

July 21, 2013 by


By Rob Bluey ~ House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R–VA) (pictured) and Judiciary Committee chairman Bob Goodlatte (R–VA) have not yet written bill text for their plan addressing children of illegal immigrants. Heritage’s David Addington, group vice president of research, wrote yesterday that Cantor and Goodlatte should reveal the text of their much-publicized plan “so […]

America At The Midnight Hour On Immigration

June 22, 2013 by


By Christopher Adamo ~ With the Supreme Court’s June 17 decision prohibiting the state of Arizona from verifying the citizenship of voters, the reality behind the government charade of preserving the integrity of the nation (one of its primary constitutional mandates) is coming unraveled. On the surface, it does appear that the high court has […]

More Mega-Legislation: Senate Takes Up Immigration “Reform”

June 12, 2013 by


By Alan Caruba ~ If you liked Obamacare, you will love the proposed immigration “reform” bill which is all about the politics of the Left with no regard to the welfare of U.S. citizens by birth and naturalized citizens. Its final length remains unknown, but it was more than 1,500 pages by late April. The […]

Cost Of Amnesty To U.S. Taxpayers: $6.3 Trillion

May 7, 2013 by


By Amy Payne ~ The Heritage Foundation’s new report estimates that an amnesty like the Gang of Eight’s immigration bill offers would cost U.S. taxpayers $6.3 trillion. Heritage President Jim DeMint said on Fox News this morning, “There’s no way that you can look at this and say that it’s good for the American taxpayer, […]

Amnesty Bill Is A Massive Multi-Million Dollar Fraud

May 5, 2013 by


By Alan Caruba ~ Native-born and naturalized Americans who are currently seeking work are already competing with illegal immigrants—a term that the Associated Press says it will no longer use—or standing in line behind them as they sign up for all manner of welfare benefits. The official estimate of the number of illegal aliens—oops, undocumented […]

If I Were Dictator (Part 16)

July 6, 2011 by


By Marlin6 On 02/05/2008, I authored a post “Benevolent Dictators Make Good Government”. Examples are King David – Israel – (1010 BC –970 B.C.) in ancient times and General Douglas McArthur – Japan – (1945 –1947) in modern times. I started musing about what I would do if I were absolute dictator of the United […]
