The Coverup Continues (Fast and Furious)

For those who believed the departure of Eric Holder from the national spotlight would be put an end to troublesome questions about Fast and Furious-and the obstruction of justice and abuse of power its failure unleashed-I have some bad news for you. The trial of several members of a Mexican rip crew for the...

More was Lost at Mohács

More was Lost at Mohács

A nation without borders is no longer a nation. Now the citizens of Europe must ask themselves if their continent, which has become a transit hub/social welfare agency for those fleeing the Islamic south, is still Europe in any meaningful sense of the word. Naturally, the cheerleaders for European self-immolation oppose any effort aimed...

In addition to the lethal consequences of municipal sanctuary laws, there is the question of jus soli, colloquially known as birthright citizenship, which...

The Mask Slips

It seems like our Mexican friends would benefit from consulting their marionettes in the American press, who are laboring under the misimpression that our sub-culture of illegal immigrants-60 percent of whom come from our neighbor to the south-is much smaller than we’ve been led to believe. At least, according to Arturo Sarukhan, a man...

The Trump Agenda

The Trump Agenda

This weekend saw the release of GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump’s much-anticipated immigration reform platform, and judging by my Twitter timeline it has generated a wide array of very vociferous reactions.
