Achieving The Dream

Achieving The Dream

Martin Luther King Jr. is perhaps the most iconic symbol of this country’s struggle for civil rights during the latter half of the 20th century. He also symbolized the aspirations-social, economic, and spiritual-of black Americans. That’s why the official commemoration of his birth-marked by a federal holiday yesterday-is the perfect occasion to examine the...

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 parents...

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.

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...

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...

When Heroes Go Down

When Heroes Go Down

I’ll discuss this at length in the days ahead, but I’d be remiss in not reporting the news that Senator Pearce seems to have been recalled by voters in Arizona’s Legislative District 18. The people who want to turn Arizona into a haven for illegal aliens would appear to have achieved a significant political victory,...

Stand With Senator Pearce

Stand With Senator Pearce

This site was founded in support of Arizona and its bold stand against the Obama administration’s shameful record of non-enforcement, vis-a-vis this country’s immigration laws. That’s why we fully support State Senate Majority Leader Russell Pearce in his fight to retain his seat in the Arizona State Senate. The forces arrayed against him, from open...

California Dreaming

California Dreaming

It looks like the bill that would increase California’s already calamitous financial and economic woes has been signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown. One legislative analysis predicted the bill will cost an additional $40 million to help students who qualify by graduating from a California high school after having attended school in the state for at...

Requiem for a City

    A big tip of the figurative hat to our good friend Kathy Shaidle, owner of the refreshingly subversive Canadian blog Five Feet of Fury, for that link. I don’t think any hour-long speech on the virtues of an open border can withstand that three minute excoriation of the double standards employed in...
