Embroidering The Truth

Embroidering The Truth

One of the preferred tactics of open borders enthusiasts, when confronted with reality, is to throw out seemingly enticing facts that they believe might sway less informed observers to their historically unpopular stance. An illuminating example of this scenario occurred recently on the eponymous Stossel, a libertarian-minded talk show broadcast by the Fox Business Network....

Beyond Spin

On Tuesday, we posted a link to a CIS backgrounder by Dan Cadman which demonstrated the necessity of detention to any system of workable immigration enforcement.

Justice Delayed Is Justice Denied

Justice Delayed Is Justice Denied

This site has consistently chronicled the glaring deficiencies of this nation’s immigration courts, including their maddening refusal to keep criminal aliens behind bars, a dysfunctional process exemplified by the President’s own uncle, whose years of defiance were eventually rewarded by the judiciary. With the ongoing invasion of the United States by Central Americans, facilitated...

Executive Action (Public Radio Weighs In)

Executive Action (Public Radio Weighs In)

And the myth of the “highly-skilled” H-1B visa holder continues to be propagated by the mainstream media with nary a word of dissent voiced. In this case, it’s being broadcast by NPR, which has never met a specious open borders argument it wouldn’t wholeheartedly embrace.  For the record, there are actually more STEM graduates...
