Fragging Americans

Fragging Americans

Today the great state of South Carolina joined a growing list of states that are on the receiving end of Justice Department lawsuits. Even as the Obama administration systematically dismantles whatever superficial immigration enforcement measures still exist, including the deportation of violent criminals, Barack Obama’s chief crony at the Department of Justice, Eric Holder, exacts revenge upon...

The Fight Continues

The Fight Continues

Yesterday afternoon I attended a fascinating conference on immigration organized by the CUNY Graduate Center, which I will explore further in  future posts. However, I’d be remiss in not reporting a decision by the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals to enjoin parts of Alabama’s landmark immigration enforcement law. While the court blocked some parts...

La Raza Backs Down

La Raza Backs Down

What happens when you launch a boycott and people still come? I guess you’ll have to ask La Raza, considering its attempt to bankrupt Arizonan commerce has turned into a colossal bust. Mark Krikorian has all of the juicy details in a  post at CIS  which explains why the NCLR has been forced to retreat from...

A Very Special Election

A Very Special Election

I’d like to use today’s post to echo the sentiments expressed by our publisher yesterday. As someone who once lived within the confines of the 9th Congressional District when it was represented by Chuck Schumer, one of the most irresponsible, worst actors in our nation’s immigration debate, I can’t urge you strongly enough to go...

Romney Condemns Illegal Immigration

Romney Condemns Illegal Immigration

As reported by the Boston Globe, Mitt Romney is courageous enough to tell a Hispanic audience that illegal immigration is wrong, and that he’ll fight to secure our borders.  His audience was savvy enough to support Romney’s principled stand. Speaking in Tampa, Florida to the Republican National Hispanic Assembly, Mr. Romney spoke against open borders...

Steinbeck Country

Steinbeck Country

The dividing line demarcating illegal aliens from American citizens is almost non-existent. Laws proscribing would-be residents from coming to this country without permission are merely arbitrarily drawn distinctions that have no substantive basis, other than racial animus on the part of “Anglos” who control the political process.  You can’t criminalize human beings, even human...

Secure Communities and the Way Forward

Secure Communities and the Way Forward

As President Obama follows through on his earlier promises of amnesty by fiat, the Internet is swirling with speculation as to motives, consequences, and potential political fallout. I had an interesting exchange on Twitter yesterday that touched upon these issues indirectly when a follower confidently averred that the administration’s earlier decision to impose Secure...

Above The Law?

Above The Law?

The Obama reelection campaign has begun in earnest with the announcement yesterday that the administration will henceforth be ignoring the expressed will of Congress, its Constitutional obligations, and the desires of the American public. In a move that President Obama’s functionaries have been telegraphing for months, and which was made official yesterday, the White House has...

A Divider, Not A Uniter

A Divider, Not A Uniter

  Now that Rick Perry has formally entered the 2012 presidential race, American Rattlesnake will have a lot more to say about his record on immigration, or lack thereof, as those of you who are aware of his history might characterize his approach to the issue. Suffice it to say, we are not fans of...
