Cutting The Purse Strings

The chief, if not the only, means of thwarting President Obama’s post-election mass amnesty consists of defunding mechanisms initiated by Congress. Fortunately, there seems to be a boomlet among House Republicans for this very course, as Numbers USA reports. As some analysts have pointed out, there’s always the possibility that this President will simply...

Perpetuating Amnesty

Perpetuating Amnesty

One thing we learned from the online ‘chat’ organized by the White House regarding its plans for immigration reform is that it will extend the constitutionally dubious program known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.

Sweet Little Lies

As sundry pundits, political consultants, and elected officials search for answers in the wake of the GOP’s decisive election loss, it’s worth noting that while the Republican Party yielded ground in the Senate, House of Representatives, and various state legislatures-to say nothing of its presidential nominee’s defeat-there were several important races where immigration patriots...

The Case Against Legal Immigration

The Case Against Legal Immigration

The issue of immigration-or even the mention of immigration enforcement-has been wholly neglected by the presumptive nominees of this country’s two major political parties. Even as prominent politicians find new ways in which to exploit ethnic divisions for the sake of political expediency, the perverse incentives of America’s federal immigration policies remain unaddressed. While...

Laboratories of Democracy

John, a member of both NY ICE and the Republican Governors Association, went to the RGA’s annual meeting held in Orlando, Florida earlier this month.
