The hopes of the Romeike family of homeschoolers to remain in America seemed to have crashed and burned on Monday when the Supreme Court declined to take their asylum case, but on Tuesday the DHS intervened to allow them to stay indefinitely as long as they remain law abiding.
It’s rare to see the government act [...]
Liberals think it’s just mean to insist that immigrants learn English; they would rather Americans be forced to speak Spanish. So in places like Mexifornia, powerful forces nudge the society toward acceptance of the invaders’ language (aka cultural surrender), maybe because bilingualism has been such a famous failure for Canada, and liberals like to employ [...]
At a time when belt-tightening is a necessary strategy for many states, the number bankrolling educations for illegal aliens is increasing: now 15 states are wasting taxpayer funds on foreigners when many citizens could use a hand.
Do these states have too much money? Or perhaps their priorities are all screwed up, in the liberal style.
On Friday, I heard a radio report about “migrant” farmworkers who live in taxpayer-subsidized housing in Watsonville, one of 24 such facilities in California. The existence of specific welfare for foreign nationals is part of the “welcoming” attitude the state has toward foreigners, which liberals regard as a sign of their moral superiority.
The immigration status [...]
In Mexifornia, the growing population of hispanic kids is still doing poorly in school compared with the palefaces. A recent meditation from the Associated Press implies that the problem is Low Expectations, neatly pinning the blame on teachers and society as a whole. No mention of non-scholarly cultures at home.
However, Asian kids who attend [...]
Montreal recently experienced some discussion about Muslim diversity after a photo appeared showing burqa creatures shepherding a group of Canadian pre-schoolers:
Why would any parent want their child taught by a masked person? You might as well have robots as daycare personnel. Pre-schoolers have smaller vocabularies than adults and rely more on subtle facial communication. Basic [...]
A couple times last week, Rush Limbaugh explored an interesting byway of political history related to the Kennedy assassination, an event which marked its 50th anniversary on Friday. The idea was that that the left could not accept the fact that an individual communist, Lee Harvey Oswald, murdered the Democrat President, and as a result, [...]
University elites must be happy with the new report from the Institute of International Education, which works closely with the State Department, showing that 819,644 international students came to study in American colleges during the 2012-13 school year.
The good news is the foreign students contribute $24 billion annually to the U.S. economy, which green-eyeshade folks [...]
Over in the Republican House, the establishment leaders have been quietly huddling to crank out measures of immigration non-enforcement that they hope will be attractive to the highly sought hispanic voter. The new thing is the Kid Act, a downsized DREAM Act, which would amnesty the kiddies but would not allow the young newbies to [...]
When Janet Napolitano was in charge of the Department of Homeland Security, the illegal alien hacks thought she deported too many of them. (However, it has been known for some time that the deportation figures of the current administration were inflated — Obama admitted the numbers were “deceptive” back in 2011.)
Below, Napolitano shared a meaningful [...]
The California scholar has written informatively about hispanic culture, illegal alien crime, high school dropout diversity and other topics.
PJ Media blogger Ed Driscoll recently talked with Heather MacDonald about California’s multicultural decline, in particular its political dysfunction, bilingual education, graffiti as art, public safety and possible future.
Here’s a transcript:
MR. DRISCOLL: This is Ed Driscoll for [...]
The political correctness brigade has now focused its sights on Halloween, just in case some diverse kid doesn’t feel included (even though no actual complaints have been found). And what student would object to replacing the daily grind of study with some candy and goofing off? As SunTV guy David Menzies notes, one school has [...]
