The Bush family’s position on immigration-more of it is good, even when it adversely impacts the people already here-is well known to those of us who have closely followed the careers of George H.W. Bush’s sons. This open borders advocacy-some would say demagoguery-has made Jeb Bush a favorite among the uniformly left of center...

Setting The Record Straight

Setting The Record Straight

The actual deportation numbers for this administration are, as anyone who has been paying attention to this issue in even the most cursory manner, appalling. Federale has an incisive post exploring just one of many grossly misleading media puff pieces extolling the benefits of President Obama’s latest unconstitutional administrative amnesty, which I recommend reading....

Too Much Of A Good Thing

Too Much Of A Good Thing

Video of Frank Gaffney’s speech can be found on Urban Infidel. One of the unofficial mottos of the United States, this phrase-which is minted on this country’s coins and emblazoned upon our paper bills-embodies the common heritage of the American nation, which was created from the union of thirteen distinct, unique former British colonies....

Europe’s Doormat

  Dogmatism and obfuscation mark virtually any media discussion of the subject of immigration-a pattern which holds true both domestically and abroad-but Sky News managed to conduct a good interview of Nigel Farage, standard bearer for the UK Independence Party, nonetheless. The Week provides a brief summary of what caused  two caring English foster...

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.

While...

Most of you are familiar with the tragic story of Jamiel Shaw Jr., a bright, energetic young student-athlete from Los Angeles who was indiscriminately killed by a criminal alien while his mother...

The Daily Rattle-April 15, 2012

The Daily Rattle-April 15, 2012

This month’s Rattle brings us a host of stories that the mainstream media didn’t cover sufficiently-preferring instead to shower accolades upon the man responsible for abandoning immigration enforcement in the name of political opportunism. We’ll cover everything from the latest spate of violent crimes committed by illegal aliens to Barack Obama’s continued roll out of administrative amnesty, which now...

The Daily Rattle for February

The Daily Rattle for February

Today’s Daily Rattle cuts a wide swath across the political landscape, including stories about the ongoing carnage of the Mexican war against the narco cartels, some high profile endorsements of Mitt Romney by immigration enforcement advocates, and a potential reentry into the political realm by our good friend Russell Pearce.

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...

The Daily Rattle (2011 New Year’s Edition)

The Daily Rattle (2011 New Year’s Edition)

Our last Rattle of 2011 runs the gamut, all the way from an immigration enforcement success in Pennsylvania to a disappointing judicial setback in South Carolina. However, we begin the final roundup of the year with a must-read essay in The American Conservative by W. James Antle III. It looks at the immigration scorecard...
