Comic Books and the “Red Card”

In 2004, the government of Mexico notoriously issued a comic book guide to migrants wishing to sneak into the United States. That colorful publication, “Guide for the Mexican Migrant,” gives helpful hints in a fun, graphics-based format about how to cross the desert without dying of thirst (adding salt to your water will prevent dehydration) …

Migrants Overwhelm Border

The surge of illegal alien migrants at the border has forced U.S. detention officers to release approximately 107,000 illegal alien family members into our border states. This influx has diverted officers from other crucial tasks as deporting criminal aliens who pose a danger to public safety. 

“The current crisis that is occurring at the southwest border, the numbers that we collectively as a nation are seeing . . . is absolutely unprecedented.” said Nathalie R. Asher, acting executive associate director for Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s deportation division.

Why Illegal Immigration Is All about Money

The influx we’re currently seeing of caravanfuls of Central American “asylum seekers” attempting to enter the United States is feeding on money, every step of the way and back. The Washington Post  reports that human smugglers have contrived a sophisticated process of delivering migrants from Central America through Mexico and dropping them off at the U.S. …

Economic Advisors: No shortage

President Trump has been influenced by cheap labor business interests to endorse an increase in legal immigration to meet an alleged labor shortage. Interestingly, this view contradicts the view expressed in a report by the president’s Council of Economic Advisors. It stated:

“Although the low unemployment rate is a signal of a strong labor market, there is a question as to whether the rapid pace of hiring can continue and whether there are a sufficient number of remaining potential workers to support continued economic growth. This pessimistic view of the economy’s potential, however, overlooks the extent to which the share of prime-age adults who are in the labor market remains below its historical norm.”

Nielsen: Border Security Near Meltdown

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen affirmed that border security is facing a real crisis situation. She stated, “The situation at our Southern Border has gone from a crisis, to a national emergency, to a near system-wide meltdown. There is no more fundamental responsibility for a nation. And yet, the American people have been let down by our government again . . . and again. I want to cut through the politics to tell you loud and clear: there is NO ‘manufactured’ crisis at our Southern Border.

George W. Bush: “A Blessing and a Strength and Energy and Talent and….”

Never at a loss for a cliche, former President George W. Bush presided over a naturalization ceremony at his Bush Center in Dallas on Monday, along with his wife Laura. Once demonized by the media, Bush has become their darling in the age of Trump. The pair predictably gushed about the unlimited contributions to both …

Immigration: A View from the Left

Time was when the political left in America–primarily represented by the labor unions–maintained a solid restrictionist position on immigration.  As leftist The New Republic reported a few years ago, “Through the 19th century and most of the 20th centuries, unionists were nearly as consistent in their dislike of immigration as they are now in favoring it. …

What Is Congress for, Anyway?

It’s hard to fathom nowadays that the framers of our republic believed that Congress, of the three branches of federal government, should and would necessarily be the strongest and most important of those branches. James Madison, the primary author of the Constitution, wrote: “In republican government, the legislative power necessarily predominates.”  Madison actually believed that …

On Thursday, with the assistance of 12 members of Trump’s own party, the Senate passed a resolution blocking President Trump’s declaration of an emergency on our southern border. A day later, Trump vetoed the legislation, which had earlier been passed by the House. “As president, the protection of the nation is my highest duty.” Surrounded …

SPLC Fires Dees

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) is a radical left-wing organization which stridently attacks immigration restrictionists. The radical left supports mass immigration as a means to destabilize American society. The SPLC’s stock-in-trade is to label its opponents as haters and racists. Now it appears that the SPLC has practiced what it denounced. The organization revealed that it has fired its founder Morris Dees, citing his “inappropriate conduct.”

The Los Angeles Times reports that “the organization, whose leadership predominately white, has been wrestling with complaints of workplace mistreatment of women and people of color. . . . A letter signed by about two dozen employees — and sent to management and the board of directors before news broke of Dees’ firing — said they were concerned [about] internal ‘allegations of mistreatment, sexual harassment, gender discrimination, and racism. . . .’ ”
