Una Fraude

Una Fraude

Although many on the left have a vested interest in denying it exists at all costs, the ineluctable truth of the matter is that voter fraud is a widespread phenomenon. Whether it is so rampant that it influences the outcome of major elections, as some maintain, or has unseated incumbent congressmen in past races,...

Blood on the Border

Blood on the Border

Update: It’s believed by the FBI that the death of this Border Patrol agent was a case of friendly fire. Look for a link to the USA Today article in the comments section of this post.  Yet another deadly attack upon this nation’s Border Patrol agents, the first since the ambush of Brian Terry...

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...

HB 56 (Partially) Upheld

This is breaking news, but it would appear that a federal judge has upheld most of the key provisions of Alabama’s immigration enforcement law, HB 56. Rest assured, American Rattlesnake will cover this story in-depth once more details of this decision are released.

Utah’s Immigration “Solution”

Utah’s Immigration “Solution”

The Utah legislature has finally passed a raft of bills designed to serve as a compromise between those of us who support immigration enforcement, and those who want to thwart the will of the people and the clear intent of American immigration law.

Is Mexico Turning Over A New Leaf?

Is Mexico Turning Over A New Leaf?

That’s undoubtedly the gloss the mainstream media will try to use when reporting on an immigration bill recently passed by the Mexican Senate. However, like almost every piece of reportage relating in some way to immigration, it will be a gross mischaracterization of what actually took place earlier this week.
