Rattle On (A Momentous Anniversary)

Rattle On (A Momentous Anniversary)

You are reading the 1,500th (extended) post to American Rattlesnake, a project which began in the febrile imagination of my friend and colleague, Michel Evanchik. If you had told me in 2010 that over half a decade later this website would exist, let alone be flourishing, I would have scoffed. Those of you who...

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...

Governor Brewer Speaks Out

  Good on her! If only other ostensible Republican leaders had the same fortitude and clarity of vision. If only.

True Independence

  Today is the federally designated holiday commemorating our separation from Great Britain, despite the fact that the adoption of the Declaration of Independence  by the Second Continental Congress occurred on July 2, 1776. Even so, this is a great day to reflect upon how our country arrived at this point in its history....

The Rights of States

The Rights of States

It’s difficult to gauge the ultimate impact of this past week’s Supreme Court decision invalidating much of Arizona’s landmark immigration enforcement law, with the exception of Section 2(b), i.e. the clause empowering local police to ascertain someone’s immigration status if  ”reasonable suspicion” exists when he or she is detained.  Even this seeming bright spot...

Stand With Arizona

Stand With Arizona

As always, American Rattlesnake stands with Sheriff Joe, Governor Jan Brewer, and the good people of Arizona. Even as Janet Napolitano’s flunkies and the Obama administration continue their war against Arizona, the vast majority of ordinary Americans, and rank and file ICE agents,  stand for law and order and against an illegal invasion aided and...

Political Calculation

I’ll post a more expansive exploration of the President’s latest unconstitutional administrative amnesty in the days ahead, but for now I’ll provide some pertinent links, including Janet Napolitano’s risible press release and video of Barack Obama’s abortive press conference in the Rose Garden-seen above.

Shadow Catcher

  National Public Radio is, almost without exception, a black hole when it comes to obtaining accurate, reliable information and analysis about immigration. Half of the on-air talent could be executed by members of MS-13, and the following day’s headline on NPR would probably be “Aggrieved Undocumented Migrants Exact Misdirected Revenge Against Jan Brewer.”...

Mike Cutler Examines SB 1070

Our good friend Michael Cutler has a new venue in which to explore the multidimensional problems associated with unfettered immigration and our government’s inability to control our borders. As a contributor to And Magazine this month, he takes a look at the Supreme Court’s deliberations over the constitutionality of Arizona’s landmark 2010 immigration enforcement law, SB...

Obama vs. the United States

Obama vs. the United States

The actual name of the case, of course, is Arizona vs. the United States, which-as Jan Brewer points out in her wonderful book, Scorpions for Breakfast-is an inherent contradiction. The United States overwhelmingly supports the state of Arizona, and endorses the landmark immigration enforcement law that this administration is trying to suppress. Even so,...
