The Left Zeroes in on Kris Kobach
From the diaries, by Erick “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” ~Saul Alinsky The Left has its new target, and he is none other than University of Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC) law professor and current candidate for Kansas Secretary of State, Kris Kobach. Kobach, a constitutional scholar and former chief adviser and counsel to Attorney General, John Ashcroft, has come under fierce | Read More »
Janet Napolitano on Border Security: “The System is Working”
Remember Janet Napolitano’s famous words on the Christmas Day Bomber. She said “The system worked.” Well, she’s at it again. On the Sunday morning shows and this morning on Morning Joe, she essentially said that the system is working better than ever before. She claims that in the last 15 months (since she’s been Secretary of Homeland Security), that the number of border agents are | Read More »
A Response to Linda Greenhouse….
As some of you may be aware, New York Times columnist Linda Greenhouse wrote a column a couple of days ago comparing the new Arizona immigration law to Nazi Germany, apartheid era South Africa, and states that “the system of internal passports was one of the more distasteful features of life in the Soviet Union”. (I would love to know what the “tasteful” features of | Read More »
Illegal Immigration has a simple solution.
It doesn’t take a giant bill to take on the illegal immigration problem. It just takes an alternate route of attack. One of the biggest issues I’ve heard on the other side is “Well how will we cover the cost to deport X million illegals?” The other source of contention is “I don’t want to be brown and get harassed walking down the street.” Both | Read More »
Video: Obama supported deporting illegal aliens without proper papers.
It appears that Senator Barack Obama had a very different view in 2006. Link to the video here or here at Breitbart if it doesn’t work on this page. Ouch. Will ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC and CNN now compare Obama’s position to some Nazi/Stalin like tactic?
5 Guiding Principles to Properly Address Illegal Immigration
Passions have been high lately regarding the push in AZ and TX legislating state enforcement of immigration law. On the one hand, every country, especially one facing hard economic times, has a right to reasonable immigration laws and to enforce them. Its simple and straightforward, and the economic impact on those who lose jobs they would have but for the illegal immigration are unjustly being | Read More »
Arizona, Washington, and the Failure of Comprehensive Legislation
There’s been an enormous amount of heat and not much light on the new Arizona immigration law. I lose track from time to time of which state the Left is hating at the moment – I believe in the past year or so we’ve been through at least Massachusetts, Louisiana, Texas, Alaska, Virginia and Arizona, but I could be missing a few – but the | Read More »
Arizona Forces A Decision
“If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice.”-Geddy Lee Immigration always becomes a dirty issue. It’s dirty, because it reveals a lot of truth about people, and the society they live in. In America, it reveals a very ugly truth about our governing class. They want the power of government without the grungy, necessary work of having to govern. They want | Read More »
Putting to bed that whole racial profiling deal
The absolutely worst argument I keep hearing against Arizona’s law banning illegal aliens, is that somehow it was going to be racist in its implementation. A bunch of ignorant folk seem to have this idea about those of us in the southwest who oppose illegal immigration, that we see brown-skinned folk and think illegal! I’ve been dismissing this idea since I first ran into it, | Read More »

Illegals leaving AZ now that being illegal is… illegal.
I’m pretty sure this was the point. “Nobody wants to pick us up,” Julio Loyola Diaz says in Spanish as he and dozens of other men wait under the shade of palo verde trees and lean against a low brick wall outside the east Phoenix home improvement store. Many day laborers like Diaz say they will leave Arizona because of the law, which also makes | Read More »
I Trust AZ LE Officials
I trust law enforcement in Arizona. They read in these spaces just as we do and they will continue to some extent – as always – to desire the good opinion of their fellows. Profiling will not be required in order to have a major impact – purely behavioral indicators can be relied upon just as they are now. I have a teeny bit of | Read More »
Arizona Immigration Law Right on Role of Government
Arizona’s newly passed law requiring police to determine the immigration status of persons suspected of being in the country illegally has created a firestorm of controversy in all the usual quarters on the left. Democrats and liberal pundits decry the state’s attempt to get a handle on its burgeoning illegal immigration problem as heavy-handed, inherently discriminatory, and racist. President Obama calls the law “misguided,” Rev. | Read More »
The Constitution Is The Rule Of Law On Illegal Immigration
A few years ago I posted a 13 part series on The Constitution. I am by no means a Constitutional scholar but do believe as a citizen of this Nation is it my responsibility to know our Constitution and understand the true and real intent of our Founders in writing this wonderful document. While the Declaration of Independence establishes our God given rights of ,”life, | Read More »
“Whaaaaaaaaaaaa,” cries the Executive Office of the President, as Arizona passes an immigration law of questionable substance. “The federal government is bad at its job!” Why? There are at least four agencies in charge of immigration policy: Department of Justice – Executive Office for Immigration Review Department of Homeland Security – Bureau of Citizenship & Immigration Services Department of Homeland Security – Bureau of Immigration | Read More »
People No, Votes Yes
When you threaten a cash crop of potential voters the Democrat Party will react like a cornered cobra, perhaps worse. Had this new law in Arizona targeted say, Irish immigrants or say, Russian immigrants would the outrage be as ferocious? Perhaps not, and do you know why? Many of you here know why but I’ll pretend I’m giving a speech to a crowd of liberal | Read More »
