On Inauguration Day, An Immigrant’s Son Sends a Hopeful Message

Just days before Donald Trump’s inauguration, I read a heartening guest opinion column that the Denver Post published, “Trump Poised to Reform America’s Failed Immigration Policies.” The author, Troy A. Eid, served as Colorado’s 40th U.S. Attorney from 2006 to 2009. Now in private practice, Eid is the first Arab-American named to any U.S.

Obama Beats Trump to the Punch, Ends Wet Foot, Dry Foot

On January 12, President Barack Obama announced that, effective immediately, he would end the “wet foot, dry foot” policy. During Bill Clinton’s second term, a 1995 amendment to the Cuban Adjustment Act created the controversial program which allowed Cubans that made it to the mainland of the United States to remain, eventually become legal permanent residents and qualify for affirmative benefits.

Can Liberals Learn to Love Immigration Reduction (Again)? Author and Professor Philip Cafaro Believes They Can.

Today’s conditions on the ground---pro-immigration cheerleading with all the parties patting themselves on the back---take a page out of 2006 and 2007. But after the smoke cleared back in the Teddy Kennedy era, amnesty was dead.

CAPS Launches Aggressive Anti-Amnesty Campaign against Gang of Eight’s McCain

Californians for Population Stabilization recently launched a television, radio and online advertising campaign in Arizona that identified Senator John McCain, one of notorious Gang of Eight, as failing to fulfill his constituents’ desire to secure the border and urging him vote against amnesty legislation.

Immigration and Occam's Razor

Occam's Razor is a principle frequently used in logic, problem-solving and science that states that the simplest solution to a problem is most often the correct solution.

But enforcement failures reverberate throughout the United States as evidenced by the nation’s 11 million illegal aliens.
