Trouble in the Heartland

Trouble in the Heartland

The photograph you see above was, perhaps unsurprisingly, taken in the United Kingdom. However, it could just as easily have been photographed in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Lewiston, Maine, or Clarkston, Georgia. In fact, it could have been taken in any of the numerous, bucolic surburbs or thriving cities that have been the unwelcome recipient of thousands of...

Filling A Need That Doesn’t Exist

Filling A Need That Doesn’t Exist

Yesterday’s Republican presidential debate didn’t offer us much in the way of substantive discussion, vis-a-vis immigration. Most of the evening was spent debating relevant foreign policy matters, such as the question of how each candidate would handle a potentially nuclear-capable Iran, what should be the government’s stance towards foreign aid to Pakistan, and what...

Identity Politics

Identity Politics

I normally wouldn’t devote an entire post to mixed martial arts, especially when there are such vital issues to discuss-including the Obama administration’s continued war against the State of Arizona. The sport doesn’t particularly appeal to me as a spectator, and I’m of the opinion that if I wanted to watch men who didn’t know...

That is where Senator Russell Pearce-the author of SB 1070,...

Multiculturalism Revisited

Multiculturalism Revisited

The debt crisis currently afflicting the developed world, particularly Western European nations like Greece and Italy, has been the top news story for much of this year. However, even as we debate whether Greece should remain part of the European Union, or whether Silvio Berlusconi should be forced to resign, you might recall that just...

History Lesson

History Lesson

Yesterday marked the 125th anniversary of the dedication of Lady Liberty, and befitting such an august occasion there were many tributes honoring one of this country’s most emblematic symbols. Unfortunately, most of them failed to accurately capture the underlying history of the statue created by French sculptor Frédéric Bartholdi which is currently anchored in New...

Scaling The Ivory Tower

Scaling The Ivory Tower

In my previous post, I described two presentations by post-graduate students invited to (New) Debates On Belonging, a workshop by the CUNY Graduate Center-seen above-devoted to exploring original research into the subjects of illegal immigration and the lives of illegal aliens within the United States. There were three other presentations that day, beginning with...
