Mr. Becerra (Calif. AG) Goes to Washington

By next summer, Governor Jerry Brown predicts that California’s budget deficit will hit $1.6 billion. And California’s insurmountable Wall of Debt, an aggregate of its current and long-term debt plus unfunded obligations, is a staggering $443 billion. In light of California’s disastrous fiscal nightmare, Gov. Brown proposes to cut public school spending, and re-evaluate other costly entitlement programs the state can no longer afford. 

Partners in Crime: Mayors of Sanctuary Cities, Human Traffickers and Other Criminals

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.

Tinkering with the Visa Waiver Program

The Visa Waiver Program (VWP) is back in the news, but this time with an encouraging note. The program which allows visitors from certain pre-approved nations to enter the United States for stays of 90 days or less without a formal visa, but with an Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) pass, has been the target of increasing criticism.

Enforcement Comes to My Hometown; Residents Clueless about Consequences

Here in Pittsburgh, we don’t have much immigration. As I sit writing this blog post, I’m trying to remember the last time I heard a language other than English spoken around me. I can’t recall.

LAPD Chief Beck Illegal Immigrants’ Ally

After the murder/suicide shooting on June 1 at UCLA, Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck updated reporters from the locked-down campus about the ongoing investigation.

Sessions: In FY 2015, Less than One Percent of Visa Overstays Removed

Visit America on a tourist visa, come as a business traveler or on the Visa Waiver Program, and stay for life. In a nutshell, that’s how the Department of Homeland Security treats nonimmigrant arrivals. Like the lyrics in the old Eagles’ song “Hotel California,” the federal government is “programmed to receive,” but when it comes time to leave, not so much.

A Grieving Father Continues to Wonder Why Feds Won’t End Sanctuary Cities

On April 27, I was a guest on the Jamiel Shaw Radio Show. On March 2, 2008, Shaw’s son, Jamiel II or “Jas” as he was known to his family and friends, was murdered in broad daylight only three houses away from his home.

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 of clowns exiting a diminutive car.
