America has a long and well-established reputation for providing safe haven for vulnerable people from around the world. This is the concept behind the political asylum program. It is a vital program that all Americans should be proud of.

Immigrants Victimizing Immigrants

I knew something was wrong when my friend came running out of her house and cried out, “Leon, your wife just called. She said please don’t be upset with her!”

I and my friend’s husband, a visiting professor from Canada at the University of California-Irvine, were just returning from a relaxing hike in Orange County’s Caspers Wilderness Park. Now my mellow mood from communing with nature vanished in an instant.

Criminals, Terrorists, War Criminals Hide in Plain Sight through Immigration Fraud

The 9/11 Commission noted that visa fraud and immigration benefit fraud were the preferred methods for terrorists to enter the United States and then embed themselves here – not only those who attacked the U.S. on September 11, 2001, but also terrorists found operating in the country during the decade prior to the 9/11 attacks.

Unlicensed Immigrant Killed My Son, S 744 Pardons Criminals

The Border Security, Economic Opportunity and Immigration Modernization Act, S.744, is filled with lies of commission.

Even though detaining criminal aliens costs peanuts, an average $164 daily, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano disingenuously referred to releasing them as a budget saving sequestration measure.
