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.

Rewriting History

With a little under a month remaining until Election Day, the Obama campaign has transitioned into full-blown hispandering mode.

The issue of immigration-or even the mention of immigration enforcement-has been wholly neglected by the presumptive nominees of this country’s two major political parties.

The Daily Rattle-April 15, 2012

This month’s Rattle brings us a host of stories that the mainstream media didn’t cover sufficiently-preferring instead to shower accolades upon the man responsible for abandoning immigration enforcement in the name of political opportunism. We’ll cover everything from the latest spate of violent crimes committed by illegal aliens to Barack Obama’s continued roll out of administrative amnesty, which now...
