In a bold, trend-defying but mostly symbolic move, California Assemblyman Travis Allen, a Huntington Beach Republican, introduced a bill to counter SB 54, the legislation that would officially make the state an illegal alien sanctuary. The Public Safety Committee instantly defeated Allen’s AB 1252 along party lines.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson posted this query to former Wall Street executive Jullisa Arce: “How many immigrants should we bring in a year? That’s a real question.” She replied that the 85,000 H-1B visa cap should “at least be doubled, to meet the needs of our country…” and that comprehensive immigration reform proposals must include citizenship for illegal immigrants. Arce’s answer isn’t surprising. Wall Street supports more immigration and Arce came to the United States illegally with her parents at age 11.
Advocates for immigration anarchy known as “Sanctuary Cities” threaten national security and public safety in numerous ways. In point of fact, those municipalities should be referred to as “Magnet Cities” because they attract aliens who are criminals or terrorists or fugitives from justice in countries from around the world.
CBS recently aired a “60 Minutes” H-1B visa segment that only hinted at this visa’s multiple inherent flaws. Since Congress created the H-1B as part of the Immigration Act of 1990, fraud in the non-immigrant, employment-based visa has been rampant.

Borders are a nation’s first line of defense and last line of defense against the enemies of that nation. In fact, it could properly be said that the primary role of our military is to keep America’s enemies as far from our shores (and borders) as possible.
However, “up close and in person,” the issue of border security becomes the domain and responsibility of the Department of Homeland Security and its component agencies charged with border security and the enforcement of our nation’s immigration laws from within the interior of the United States.
For all the fuss about President Donald Trump’s executive order that temporarily poses some restrictions on certain refugees’ entry into the United States, one of its key provisions has been overlooked.
Mariya Chernykh, the Russian immigrant whose husband was a co-conspirator in the December 2015 San Bernardino terrorist shooting that killed 14 and seriously injured 22, admitted that her marriage to Enrique Marquez was a sham. Marquez is an Islam convert who purchased two of the guns used in the slaughter.
Watching Meryl Streep at the Golden Globes last weekend made me nostalgic for Marlon Brando’s 1973 rejection of an Academy Award and his representation on stage that night by a very polite and dignified 27-year-old Apache, Sacheen Littlefeather.
