New York Times Examines California as the More Advanced Illegal Immigration State

The New York Times analyzed the California experience with illegal immigration on Sunday, with the usual slant that diversity happens and American citizens should just lay back and enjoy the tacos.

Boo Hoo! Not Enough Amnesty!

The ink is hardly dry on Emperor Obama’s unconstitutional amnesty for an estimated five million illegal aliens, yet the chorus of whiners is already in full screech mode, howling that the unprecedented mass pardon/reward is UNFAIR! because it doesn’t cover every single unlawful foreigner in the country.

Iran Cabinet Is Tops in American Collegiate Alums

Washington liberal elites love the fable that welcoming foreign students into US universities spreads American values on the cheap. The State Department in particular promotes student visas that directly harm US young people by displacing them from jobs (J-1 visa) to college slots.
