Comprehensive Immigration Reform: Congress Must Look Before It Leaps

On June 22, 2007 the Washington Times published my op-ed titled Immigration Bill a 'No Go' about the pending comprehensive immigration reform legislation. 

Mainstream Media's Blatant Amnesty Bias

Recently, Fox News threw Marco Rubio round after round of softball questions about his Gang of Eight amnesty bill, the Border Protection, Economic Opportunity and Immigration Modernization Act, S.744. Interestingly, Rubio tried to distance himself from the very bill he helped write. In fact, he couldn't defend S. 744 at all.

Memorial Day, American Wars and Unwanted Amnesty

This Memorial Day weekend, thousands of Vietnam War veterans will participate in the 25th annual “Rolling Thunder” motorbike cavalcade headed toward Washington, D.C. Once there, they’ll join up at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, more commonly referred to as “The Wall.” The tribute began in 1988 with 2,500 supporters; this year, nearly 1 million will participate. Their theme: “We ride for those who can’t”

Judiciary Committee Passes S. 744; Euphoric Leahy Soon to Face the True Test: Full Senate Debate

Despite weeks of assurances that border security measures would be in place before aliens received permanent legal status, the committee considered but rejected dozens of amendments that would have strengthened S. 744 both on the border and for American workers.

Next month, S. 744 will go to the floor for a full Senate debate. Without the advantage of a stacked committee, the bill will meet heavy resistance from Republicans and Democrats alike.

Al Franken, the Bald Eagle and America

On May 16, as I listened to the Senate Judiciary Committee’s the third mark-up session on the Secure Borders, Economic Opportunity and Immigration Modernization Act, S. 744, Minnesota Senator Al Franken continuously lied about E-Verify.

Come One, Come All; S. 744 Invites the World

Come one, come all. For anyone from any nation who might feel overlooked in the expansive S. 744, the Secure Borders, Economic Opportunity and Immigration Modernization Act, the solution is simple. Hire a lobbyist and go for it. Be sure to request special considerations, too. After all, nothing ventured, nothing gained.

USC Goes All Out in Support of Amnesty, Part I

As I listened recently to three hours of cheerleading at the University of Southern California for the Gang of Eight’s amnesty plan I thought of the many families sending their kids to USC.

They hand over $62k a year per student (four years = $250k, most likely, debt). USC then produces a graduate inculcated into an ideology (if what I listened to is illustrative) that undermines the U.S. jobs market for Americans, promotes unsustainable growth, scoffs at sovereignty and places substantial burdens on public services.

USC Goes All Out in Support of Amnesty, Part II

On April 30, USC and the Schwarzenegger Institute hosted an event to put a stamp of approval on the Gang of Eight amnesty legislation.

Gang of Eighter Sen. John McCain said he believes that with new technology and E-Verify, “We can have 90 percent effective control of our border.”

Why quibble over a mere 10 percent?

USC Goes All Out in Support of Amnesty – Part III

Listening to the recent pro-immigration event at USC made me think of George Orwell, because of the 1984ish flavor of the conference. I’m not talking all-out dystopia, but a real sense of propaganda and calling things not as they are.

One speaker, Dowell Myers, a USC professor of population dynamics, was asked about the cost of health care and anchor babies – how do relative benefits versus costs get reconciled?

“There’s lots of economic data,” he said, “and it’s hard to know who to believe.”
