Genuine Debate

All too often the choices offered to the American public come down to differences of packaging. Would you rather vote for the interventionist, open borders, chubby white guy, or the interventionist, open borders, svelte Hispanic male? The media’s relentless denial of the facts and refusal to acknowledge alternative points of view only entrenches the...

Hart-Celler 50 Years On

Today marks the half-century mark of what is one of the most important-and arguably, the most disastrous-pieces of domestic legislation enacted by the United States Congress.

Facilitating human trafficking, expediting the resettlement of thousands of non-refugee aliens within this country, and paying off the immigration lawyers who are in large measure responsible for the current disaster. President Obama’s farcical budget request has it all. Dan Cadman provides a thorough debunking of this administration’s latest spin in a well-researched Center for...
