Could THIS be the real reason Donald Trump chickened out on the Iowa debate?
One of the main reasons that Donald Trump supporters cling to him is his alleged support for deporting illegal aliens and building The Wall. Some, including myself, have asserted for months that his opposition to illegal immigration is bogus, and if it comes down to illegals or profit, he’ll take the latter. Supposedly Trump dropped out of the Iowa debate because he didn’t like Megyn | Read More »
Did Marco Rubio Just Endorse Amnesty? (VIDEO)
Today on Meet the Press, Marco Rubio was asked about his position on immigration. Whether or not he endorsed amnesty is both in the eye of the beholder and a metaphor for the difficulty of discussing immigration at all.

Hillary Clinton Calls On Obama To End Immigration Raids
Someone really ought to tell Hillary Clinton that pandering condescension is just as offensive to Latinos as it is to white people. In yet another embarrassing effort to garner Latino votes, Hillary Clinton has now spoken out about the DHS immigration raids that began on New Year’s weekend. Honestly, this is worse than the borderline racist “Hillary Clinton is Just like your Abuela” campaign. Surprisingly | Read More »
The Conficting Views Of Marco Rubio and Trey Gowdy Makes For Strange Bedfellows
The endorsement by South Carolina Republican Representative Trey Gowdy of Florida Senator Marco Rubio in the GOP presidential nomination contest offers a contrast in opposing positions. Gowdy has espoused positions that have been repudiated by Rubio and it will be interesting to see how the two men reconcile their differences as they campaign together. In Iowa, the Rubio campaign has been attacking his rival for the nomination, | Read More »
Did Obama Just Throw Hillary Under the Bus With His Immigration Announcement?
A couple of days ago the Department of Homeland Security announced that it was taking time off from the really important work of groping your genitals as a prerequisite to boarding a commercial aircraft to actually enforce the law. This is a novel concept in an administration that has virtually replaced E Pluribus Unum with L’etat, C’est Moi as the national motto. It announced that | Read More »
Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio Need To Take a Class In Trump Politics
Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio. Rubio and Cruz. Ted VERSUS Marco. That’s the news that is fit to print after this week’s Republican Primary Debate from CNN and Salem. You’ve seen several articles here at RedState about this new and epic battle. And the hottest part of this Hot Topic, and the source of many a Twitter Hot Take, is the “he said, he said” battle over immigration and | Read More »
The Fundamental Flaw at the Heart of Ted Cruz’s and Marco Rubio’s Campaigns
“Arguing about how pure a conservative either Cruz or Rubio is, is like arguing over FL and IF diamond clarity.” When ran for the Senate, I backed him in 2009. He was around three percent in the polls. I declared his candidacy a hill to die on. I’d do it all over again. I adore the guy. Jim DeMint and the Senate Conservatives Fund followed. | Read More »
This anti-immigration group is recycling old anti-Catholic rhetoric
Back in the 1850s, America dealt with the fad of the the Know Nothing movement and its political wing, the American party. The group claimed to represent the interests of native Americans against the dangers of unrestrained immigration. However that one issue couldn’t really get support, so it instead went anti-Catholic, and sought to appeal to large numbers of Protestant immigrants who just wanted to | Read More »
Fifth Circuit upholds injunction against Obama’s Amnesty
Greg Abbott sued to stop Barack Obama’s administrative amnesty for millions of illegal aliens, back when he was Attorney General. Now he’s Governor, and he is winning, along with the other 25 states that joined Texas in suing: the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the injunction preventing the President from implementing his amnesty.
Leading California anti-amnesty group defends One Child Policy
Californians for Population Stabilization (CAPS) likes to portray itself as a conservative group. They run ads against Amnesty, and went hard after . Like FAIR and NumbersUSA, they want to dupe the American right into thinking they are an ally. But they aren’t. They have more in common with Chinese Communist hardliners than American conservatives.
‘One Child’ Left Behind, But Don’t Celebrate Yet
Today it was reported that after more than thirty years, communist China has at long last changed their one-child policy. The policy, which resulted in millions of abortions – some elected, some forced, some sex-selected, all terrible – is now a two-child policy. Previously in China, you needed to live in a rural area to be permitted by the communist government to have more than | Read More »
Democrats and GOP Senator Mark Kirk team up to block ‘sanctuary cities’ law
This is what having a GOP majority and gutless, go-along-to-get-along leadership in the Senate gets you. Senate Democrats on Tuesday blocked a Republican-backed bill that would crack down on so-called sanctuary cities by threatening to withhold funds to local governments that don’t cooperate with federal immigration officials. The bill failed on a 54-45 vote. It needed 60 to advance. The Stop Sanctuary Cities Act became | Read More »
The New York Times’ Phoney Indignation, Grown-Ups and Illegal Immigration
The New York Times professes alarm and indignation at the overbearing influence of corporate and plutocratic money in American politics. The paper’s Editorials have frequently denounced recent Supreme Court opinions permitting corporate funding for political advocacy. Nor have they scrupled to heap opprobrium on individual wealthy donors to politics. So on the Times own principles it is most alarming indeed that the selfsame paper has | Read More »

A selection of green left policy ideas from NumbersUSA’s Roy Beck
The websites founded by the late Andrew Breitbart (who used to go on Univision and support “immigration reform”) have been giving voice to Roy Beck of NumbersUSA. I write today to remind you that this is a desperate move, one that shows how difficult it is to find actual conservative voices to support their agenda. Roy Beck is no conservative, and he’s no ally of | Read More »
Nationalism Is Hard, But Worth It If You Love America
One thing frustrates me about people who purport to be my allies on wanting to enforce America’s immigration laws anew and restore the value of our citizenship. They won’t willingly pay any price for it. It’s always someone else’s fault. Sadly, fixing and repairing things costs money and hardship. The rain will fall on both the wicked and the just. It will cost us an | Read More »
