The DREAM Factory

The DREAM Factory

This film sounds so delightfully atrocious that we’re moderately interested in seeing just how bad the final product is, should it come to fruition. Much like La Misma Luna, the protagonist of this feature is a beleaguered yet ambitious DREAMer. Who better to tug on the heart strings of credulous cineastes as Congress attempts...

Shining A Light

Shining A Light

In between its Fourth of July break and its month-long recess in August, the unyielding worker bees in Congress will try to shepherd one of the most ill-conceived, potentially disastrous pieces of legislation into law. I’m speaking, of course, about the Gang of Eight travesty. During the Senate’s abbreviated debate on the bill there...

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...

Stay Tuned

But first, we examine...

An Open Debate About Open Borders

An Open Debate About Open Borders

One of the most persistent divides between traditional conservatives and their libertarian/anarcho-capitalist counterparts involves a fundamental philosophical disagreement about immigration. While most conservatives view immigration primarily through the lens of preserving American culture by only accepting those immigrants who are assimilable and will tangibly benefit our society in the future, a view expressed repeatedly...

Giving Thanks

  We at American Rattlesnake  would like to wish all of our followers a very contented and happy Thanksgiving. Unfortunately, there are many Americans who are pained by the absence of loved ones this holiday, including the family of Marizela Perez. More than eight months after this vivacious, precocious University of Washington student disappeared...

Jamiel’s Law in 2011 (Listen Now!)

I’d like to introduce you to a voice that the open borders left has tried to silence through a campaign of demonization and vilification. Jamiel Shaw Sr. has gained a following recently; unfortunately, it’s because his son was slain by one of the scores of illegal alien criminals that California’s pandering politicians-have allowed to nest...
