GAO: Fed prisons pops. are 25% illegals, but Obama laughs it away.

Hans Von Spakovsky opines regarding a March 2011 report by the Government Accountability Office on illegal immigration — the numbers are eye-poppingly serious. GAO found that one of every four inmates in federal prisons is an illegal immigrant. And that number is rising. Since 2005, the number of criminal aliens in federal prison has increased […]

Pete Stark unhinged.

Quote of the week: “This is what the bloated arrogance of entitled incumbency looks like.” — Michelle Malkin, referring to California Democrat Rep. Pete Stark’s sarcastic responses to the calm and reasonable questions on border security as posed by his constituents. Wow, what a jerk. There’s a lot of great lines in that 10-minute video […]

Obama official: we’ll just refuse to take illegals from AZ.

You may have heard about the head of Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE), John Morton, basically state that his taxpayer-funded  department, which is sworn to uphold and protect the Constitution of the United States, will not actually uphold and protect the Constitution of the United States, in this case by refusing to detain or deport […]

What of Mexico’s immigration policy?

Here’s William Bennett in a must-read commentary regarding the Arizona anti-illegal immigration law: [Mexican President] Felipe Calderón has simply no business lecturing us, lecturing America, about our immigration policies. How does Mexico treat illegal immigrants? See Article 67 of Mexico’s General Population Law: “Authorities, whether federal, state or municipal . . . are required to demand that foreigners prove […]

They hate the Arizona law because it could work.

Great letters regarding Arizona’s illegal immigration law.

Via the WSJ: Regarding Pima County Sheriff Clarence W. Dupnik’s “Arizona’s Immigration Mistake” (op-ed, May 5): What country on earth allows foreign nationals to roam around without passports, visas and IDs? Who disagrees that boarder sovereignty is a legitimate function of government? Why is requiring everyone to carry identification a problem? David Klemm Phoenix Sherrif […]

An Illegal Immigration Fence.

It’s an old idea, and one to date only halfheartedly implemented: A 300-mile or so border fence. One of the lackluster criticisms regarding such a fence has been cost. It’s laughable when compared to how much money the Congress wastes on unnecessary things (not to mention things not explicitly empowered to it via the Constitution). […]

Liberals against State’s rights, except when they’re for them.

Here’s Jonah Goldberg: Linda Greenhouse, longtime Supreme Court reporter for the New York Times and currently a Yale law professor, penned an op-ed for the Times in which she emoted that Arizona has become a Nazi-esque “police state” where it is a crime to be “breathing while undocumented.” Now, I don’t want to dwell on […]

Arizona’s illegal immigration law.

Here’s George Will on Arizona’s new immigration law: It is passing strange for federal officials, including the president, to accuse Arizona of irresponsibility while the federal government is refusing to fulfill its responsibility to control the nation’s borders. Such control is an essential attribute of national sovereignty. America is the only developed nation that has […]

Catch & Release.

It’s not the title of a new romantic comedy, rather, it’s our dangerous policy of neither holding nor deporting dangerous illegal aliens: Federal immigration officials allowed scores of violent criminals — some ordered deported decades ago — to walk away from Harris County Jail despite the inmates’ admission to local authorities that they were in […]
