The question-and-answer format can be an effective explanatory tool. The Orange County Register presented a friendly Q-&-A with NumbersUSA’s Roy Beck in which he could calmly describe his organization’s beliefs and policies without the arm-wrestling one sees in many media interviews given by unfriendlies.
While the open-borders crowd tries to claim virtue with its simpering sob [...]
Iraqi refugee Abdullatif Aldosary was sentenced on Monday to five years in prison for illegal possession of firearms, but the justice system is not yet finished with him. He is also accused of exploding a bomb in front of an Arizona Social Security Office in November 2012 and murder, among other things.
Aldosary is a dangerous [...]
The administration wants the citizens to trust it to perform immigration enforcement, but it can’t even keep a convicted terrorist bomber from working in its signature social welfare program.
The government doesn’t do a good job screening new immigrants, as illustrated by the number of war criminals admitted over the years. And lately, the feds have [...]
How stupid are judges to take the word of a stone-cold gangster that he has renounced a life of crime, particularly when the criminal gets a big payoff for the lie, er statement? But that’s what happened in a recent appeals court decision which could set a dangerous precedent.
Besides, if a gangster fears his MS-13 [...]
In a decision of the Fourth Circuit Appeals Court, judges allowed that an illegal alien MS-13 gangster could get on a path to citizenship because he had renounced his gang affiliation. A couple of Republican House members are upset at the precedent that decision would set, but perhaps the judges had merely absorbed the spirit [...]
On Wednesday, the PBS Newshour had a segment on the need to speed up the issuance of visas to Afghan refugees who had previously provided translation services to American troops. The segment begins at 25:00 on the video following:
Somehow the plea from the liberal media for speedier admittance of war refugees sounded strangely familiar. In [...]
On Monday, a Guatemalan ex-soldier, Jorge Sosa (pictured), was sentenced to ten years in prison for lying about his past in order to enter this country and become an American citizen. The jail time sounds pretty slim for a man who took part in the massacre of at least 160 people in the village of [...]
Jeh Johnson, the new guy who replaced Janet Napolitano as head of the Department of Homeland Security, remarked recently about illegal aliens, “Everyone knows we have millions of undocumented immigrants in this country, and they’re not going away; they’re not going to self-deport.” His comments came during a February 7 speaking event at the Woodrow [...]
It is very curious that the administration finds it necessary to loosen the standards by which Syrians are admitted to the United States when more than two million have been torn from their homes by the civil war there.
Can 12,000-15,000 (numbers demanded by refugee resettlement hucksters) not be found who have terror-free backgrounds among the [...]
The President thinks our asylum/refugee system is too tough on people with “limited” terrorist connections, even though an estimated 70 percent of political asylum cases are based in fraud, according to a recent Washington Times article, Audit finds asylum system rife with fraud; approval laws broken with surge of immigrants, Feb 5.
The unilateral action by [...]
The current administration apparently believes that welcoming Muslim refugees is more important than national security. Otherwise it wouldn’t have unilaterally loosened the rules by which persons having terrorist ties are kept out. Now they can get in.
Apparently, the reduction of standards was done to enable more Syrians to enter the US (something that has been [...]
It was a pleasant surprise to see ICE Union Director Chris Crane appear on the Mike Huckabee show Saturday. (The host was a squish on immigration enforcement when he ran for President in 2008.)
Crane reported that few House members have been interested in what enforcement officers see on the ground, just as the Gang of [...]
