Showdown in Ames

Showdown in Ames

A few observations about last night’s Republican presidential debate, at least as it pertains to the subjects of immigration and border control: -Newt Gingrich, despite his previous record of supporting amnesty, acquitted himself quite well. At least, rhetorically. His suggestion that American citizens be able to review prospective immigrants, although impractical in theory, does...

America The Beautiful (Part II)

Update: Watch video footage of the event taken by my friend, P.H. You can also find more photos she took here.  Update II: Read the entire story on The Silent Majority No More. Despite protestations to the contrary, which included repeated references to the “diverse” array of illegal aliens demanding that the government explicitly sanction...

The Federation for American Immigration Reform has a fantastic summary of HB 56 on their website which I highly recommend reading. Of course, the usual suspects have denounced Alabama’s lawmakers...

Secure Communities Under Attack

Secure Communities Under Attack

Americans Win!

Americans Win!

Conversely, you could say that the Chamber of Commerce and ACLU have lost, and lost big-time. Overall, it was a very good day for the Supreme Court of the United States, or as law nerds like to call it, SCOTUS. However, it was an even better day for Arizonans, and for those of us...

Support Arizona

As well as its fine governor, Jan Brewer. As most of you might have heard, she will appeal a ruling by a three-judge panel from the  9th Circuit Court of Appeals that upheld Judge Susan Bolton’s injunction against SB 1070.

When Less Is More (Intelligence Squared Debate)

When Less Is More (Intelligence Squared Debate)

This past tuesday I had the distinct pleasure of attending an Intelligence Squared debate whose subject is one that this website has addressed repeatedly in the past, although admittedly, not as often as I would have liked. The drive to thwart repeated amnesty proposals introduced throughout this past year has not given us the opportunity...
