The Origins Of SB 1070

An interesting story published in USA Today yesterday about one Arizona town’s take on SB 1070. There’s not much new discovered by the reporter sent out to take the pulse of Apache Junction, but one observation by a resident struck me as a bit odd.

NYICE Counter-Protests In Support of SB 1070

NYICE Counter-Protests In Support of SB 1070

There is opposition to illegal immigration, even at pro-illegal immigration rallies. On July 8th, the New York Immigration Coalition, a group sympathetic to illegal aliens and supporters of immigration amnesty, held a rally outside the offices of Major League Baseball (MLB).  The protest rally was against the state of Arizona and the passage of...

Although it might look like a small win-the general election is still ahead of us-Kris Kobach, one of the chief architects of SB 1070, and perhaps the most dedicated and innovative legal mind defending states against illegal trespassers and their enablers, has just defeated his opponents in the Republican primary for Kansas Secretary of State.

Courtesy of  Fox News, we learn that Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli has issued a legal opinion very similar to the executive order of Governor Donald Carcieri of Rhode Island. And while SB 1070 continues to be battled over in the courts and in the media, states other than Arizona are not waiting for a ruling from the DOJ to start taking action.

However, what happens when that right becomes an excuse to obstruct, delay and impede the lives of other citizens? Usually this isn’t a problem in New York City,...

How To Make Friends And Influence People

As Doug McIntyre pointed out last night on Red Eye Radio-as an aside, I suggest that anyone interested in this issue, and who’s an insomniac, listen to Red Eye, which in New York is broadcast on 77-WABC-probably the least effective way of achieving amnesty is parading around under the banner of the Mexican government....

Why Not Rhode Island: Part II

Why Not Rhode Island: Part II

Now,  as I explained yesterday,  the state of Rhode Island-thanks to the  decisive leadership of its chief executive, Donald Carcieri-has been encouraging its police officers to ascertain the immigration status of people who were detained in connection with unrelated investigations. Of course, this power is the same one granted to police officers in the...

SB 1070 And Major League Baseball

The decision to hold the next MLB All-Star Game in the state of Arizona has, of course, elicited controversy among the 30-35 percent of the population that feels illegal aliens shouldn’t be compelled to leave the country. On the other hand, some of the people living in New York City, of all places, think...

Why Not Rhode Island?

While the Obama administration’s Justice Department sought an injunction against the state of Arizona for its enactment of SB 1070, and the defenders of the open-borders status quo went to the barricades against what they perceived as an impending pandemic of racial profiling, a quiet revolution in immigration enforcement was occurring across the country...

Xenophobia

            Earlier tonight I was watching a program called “Noticiero” on La Estrella, a Spanish-language, HD channel that airs on an affiliate station of WPIX in New York, whose chief topic was-suppress your shock for a moment–immigration! The show’s host-who I remember chiefly for hosting a news-magazine tabloid program, roughly...
