Obama’s Border Game, and Why Republicans Are Doomed to Lose It

President Obama has deliberately provoked the current crisis along our nation’s southwestern border in an effort to force House Republicans to pass the Senate’s “Gang of Eight” amnesty plan.

Obama Fails Again: Are We Surprised?

“Obama: Anatomy of a World Leader,” by Alex Gray (detail) The escalating mess at Murietta and the general bankruptcy of President Obama’s “immigration policy” — the scare-quotes necessitated by its haphazard and improvised nature, so that it isn’t actually a policy at all — isn’t something I’ve said a lot about, because the disaster is […]

They’re Not Going Back

Rush Limbaugh: Thanks to the New York Times, of all places, we now know (get ready) that 300,000 illegal aliens have come into our country just since April.

A new book exposes malfeasance by President Obama, and the administration’s defenders are trying to “kill the messenger”: Houston immigration attorney Raed Gonzalez claims the controversy surrounding the Obama administration’s release of tens of thousands of criminal illegal aliens is just a “publicity stunt” generated by the authors of a book documenting the case for […]

‘Hundreds of Thousands of Deportable Aliens’ Released Under Obama Policy

This is truly outrageous: A review of internal ICE metrics for 2013 reveals that hundreds of thousands of deportable aliens who were identified in the interior of the country were released instead of removed under the administration’s sweeping “prosecutorial discretion” guidelines. In 2013, ICE reported 722,000 encounters with potentially deportable aliens, most of whom came […]

Immigration Horror Stories: How Do You Say ‘Rape Culture’ in Spanish?

Smugglers who don’t respect U.S. borders and U.S. laws also don’t respect the basic humanity of their Mexican victims: Faced with the prospect that they may be raped by their guides — also called ‘coyotes’ — or fellow travelers as they cross border and travel through the desert, women crossing illegally into the United States […]
