Border Insecurity

The House Oversight Subcommittee on National Security held hearings on the glaring failure of the Obama administration to secure this nation’s borders and the dysfunctional nature of the Department of Homeland Security under Janet Napolitano’s leadership last month.

The Department of Homeland Surrender

    One of the themes we’ve tried to impress upon our audience over the past three years is the multidimensional nature of immigration. It’s not simply a single issue among a panoply of issues that animate the cut and thrust of politics. It encompasses everything from economics to culture, including crime, education, health...

Feet In Two Worlds

One of the themes we’ve emphasized on American Rattlesnake this year is the damage inflicted upon American society by ill-conceived policies of refugee resettlement carried out by the federal government.

Importing Rape

  Just another reason why our disastrous refugee system needs to be overhauled. Just like in Canada, these people do not belong here. Although, I doubt we’ll be seeing fewer of them in the years to come, which makes horrific crimes like this one more likely in the future. Hat Tip: Urban Infidel.

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 Fertile Crescent

One of the tragedies of post-Saddam Hussein Iraq is the depopulation of Christians from a country  in which they had thrived for well over a millennia. The death of Pope Shenouda III this weekend reminds us that the persecution of Christians is not limited to Iraq, but has infected the entire region to such...

Immigration Scofflaws Crave Publicity

Immigration Scofflaws Crave Publicity

USA Today is reporting on a new strategy self-entitled immigration scofflaws are using to stay in this country.  They exploit public sympathy and liberal news outlets to publicize their illicit immigration status and demand the right to stay in this country: Abdollahi’s parents immigrated to the U.S. from Iran on a student visa when...
