Driver’s Licenses

One notable impact of SB 1070, even in the truncated form that emerged from Judge Susan Bolton’s partial injunction, is the desire on the part of illegal aliens to flee to neighboring states. One of the most compassionate towards the “undocumented” seems to be the state of Utah, which allows them to obtain driver’s...

The First Step

The First Step

From the Associated Press, we learn that President Obama signed the border security bill  I wrote about last week. The good part is that this law is intended specifically to enhance policing our borders, with not a single bracero program or “path to citizenship” in sight.

The Origins Of SB 1070

An interesting story published in USA Today yesterday about one Arizona town’s take on SB 1070. There’s not much new discovered by the reporter sent out to take the pulse of Apache Junction, but one observation by a resident struck me as a bit odd.
