New York’s Get Out Of Jail Free Card

New York’s Get Out Of Jail Free Card

I have some incredibly disturbing news to report to you today that entails gutting an effective program involving the collaboration of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency and the New York Department of Corrections. As many of you might know, one of the best means of apprehending and deporting criminal aliens is consistent cooperation between federal...

The U.S. Abandons An Ally

The U.S. Abandons An Ally

I wasn’t planning on discussing this issue today, but we do address important foreign policy issues on this site when the occasion demands it. Needless to say, President Obama’s insistence that the state of Israel, which has heretofore been our most trusted and reliable ally in the Middle East, return to annihilatory borders  is such an occasion.

Coming Home

Coming Home

One of the most frustrating aspects of being part of the immigration enforcement and reform movement is the inertia that seems to develop over the course of time. When looking at the sheer scale of the problem-over 20 million illegals in the country, with over half a million coming every single year-many of us...

The Old Gray Lady: Down for the Count?

The Unintended Consequences of an Unsecured Border

One of the most transparent problems with effectively policing our southern border is its sheer vastness. Over 1,900 miles in length, it is one of the longest land borders on the planet, and the largest stretch of land that exists between two nations whose differential in wage scale and standard of living is as...

Thank Congressman King for standing up to President Obama

Just got an e-mail from the president of NY ICE reminding me of Peter King’s strongly worded statement about President Obama’s pathetic El Paso speech in favor of amnesty. She suggested writing an e-mail commending him for his continued stand against this betrayal of the American people.

Requiem for a City

  A big tip of the figurative hat to our good friend Kathy Shaidle, owner of the refreshingly subversive Canadian blog Five Feet of Fury, for that link. I don’t think any hour-long speech on the virtues of an open border can withstand that three minute excoriation of the double standards employed in our...

Border Communities Speak Out

Border Communities Speak Out

As it turns out, not everyone is as amused by the President’s rib-ticklers as his sycophants in the mainstream media. Margaret Carlson, are you listening? From Fox News comes word that those besieged residents of American border towns have written a powerful letter to Mr. Obama expressing their outrage at his cavalier dismissal of...

The Immigrant Experience in America (Rattlesnake Reads)

The Immigrant Experience in America (Rattlesnake Reads)

Documenting the lives of immigrants is an enduring aspect of American literature, which befits a nation that has been shaped to such a large extent by successive waves of migration from distant lands. One of the most important novels published in the first half of the 20th century, Christ in Concrete, was written by the son...
