Standing Up To POTUS

Standing Up To POTUS

Yesterday’s power grab aimed at the Internet demonstrated yet again that this administration has contempt for the law across the board, not simply on matters of immigration policy.

Con Law 101

Con Law 101

Two Americans (A Postscript)

One of the most frustrating aspects of the immigration monologue that’s unfolded over the past few years is the inability of one side-representing those who are committed to open borders and an uninterrupted stream of mass immigration-to acknowledge the legitimacy of the concerns expressed by their opponents, despite the fact that they constitute a...
