The Immigration ‘Clown Car’ – While Hardly a Laughing Matter, the Joke Is on Us

We have all seen the “clown car” at the circus where a compact car rolls into the center ring. A car door pops open and many clowns emerge, cavorting around the ring and eventually disappearing behind the center scene. The point to the gag is to entertain the audience. The entertainment is provided through the impossibility of what the audience witnesses, a seemingly endless stream...

Funding Catastrophe: Congress Approves Omnibus Spending Bill

My mom used to tell me, “Actions speak louder than words.” On December 18, 2015, Congress voted to approve the 2,009-page Omnibus spending bill, also known as the “Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2016.” As a consequence, Congress became the Obama Administration’s enablers and, indeed, “partners in crime.” Depending on your orientation, this bill...

For decades, discussions about the failures of the immigration system focused almost exclusively on securing our southwest border but ignored not only the legal entry system, but the solution to the failures of both the legal and illegal means by which aliens – including terrorists and transnational criminals – enter the United States: the enforcement of our immigration laws from...

Immigration and Terrorism – It’s About More Than Vetting Refugees

Until recently, most of our leaders and journalists made the issue of security along the U.S.-Mexican border the focus of failures of the immigration system. They ignored the fact that it has been estimated that some 40 percent of the illegal aliens present in the United States were aliens who violated the terms of their admission by overstaying, working on jobs they were not legally authorized...

False Security is Worse than No Security

Security procedures and background checks were top topics on news programs after Russian Metrojet Flight 9268 crashed October 31 shortly after taking off from the Egyptian resort of Sharm el-Sheikh, destined for St. Petersburg, Russia.
