Charitable At Your Expense

One of the worst aspects of our immigration system is that it provides perverse incentives to the worst people. From the Chinese-owned law firms that facilitate Chinese immigration through fraudulent asylum applications-a crime so pervasive that even nonpartisan academics acknowledge it to be ubiquitous in nature-to the industry-not my words-of birth tourism, to the...

Par for the Course

  It seems as if the Democratic Party has found a useful cudgel in its campaign to vilify the Republican Party during this tumultuous election season.

Invisible Children

The problem of birth tourism is one usually associated with the United States, although as the above Sun TV segment points out, it plagues Canada as well.

L’affaire Strauss-Khan

There are a number of lessons to be gleaned from the rapidly imploding criminal case against the former head of the International Monetary Fund, Dominique Strauss-Kahn. Beyond the usual, insincere breast-beating and lamentation over the media’s predictable rush to judgement, as well as questions of whether the traditional perp walk is a violation of...

American Rattlesnake’s Slimeball Of The Week

This week’s award goes to a certain Yupeng Deng, whose ingenious scheme to defraud Chinese nationals seeking American citizenship was just  unraveled by theLos Angeles District Attorney.
