Texas Independence

April 23, 2014
Texas Independence

Monday marked the 178th anniversary of the Battle of San Jacinto, the decisive military engagement of the Texas Revolution, which ensured the defeat of General Santa Anna’s armies and the independence of what would become, in time, the Lone Star State. Although not the only revolt against the central government’s negation of federalism  within Mexico, it was, obviously, the most successful. 

In the past, we’ve explored the President’s misguided, ahistorical view of Mexican-American relations, but today we’d like to salute the courageous Texas patriots who risked their lives and freedom in order to ensure that the values embodied by the Constitution of 1824 were upheld. We would also like to salute the bravery of the Mexican soldiers who endured extreme hardship in order to give battle to their former countrymen, in spite of the craven leadership of their military commander. 

For a good overview of how this great battle unfolded, I suggest reading El Jefe’s fascinating examination of this consequential date in American and Mexican history.

Stop The Boehner-Cantor-Obama Amnesty

Stop The Boehner-Cantor-Obama Amnesty

This past week’s immigration theater confirm what we have been saying for years. Namely, that the House GOP leadership can’t be trusted to protect the interests of the American public, especially when they conflict with its corporate benefactors. Even as Boehner’s attack dogs from silicon valley are unleashed against his own members who dare to stand up for their constituents, his chief deputy in the House of Representatives continues to peddle the spurious line that he disagrees with Obama over immigration reform, i.e. legislative amnesty.

Thankfully, as the invaluable Mickey Kaus points out, there is something you can do about this! You can find out what that is below the fold.  Read More »

La Bestia

April 15, 2014
La Bestia

One of the overlooked aspects of this country’s problem dealing with illegal aliens is the subset of this population which comes from Central America, often at great risk to life and limb. The treacherous route these migrants take  north relies upon a network of freight trains known as La Bestia, (The Beast), or El tren de la muerte, i.e. the train of death, which is self-explanatory. A fascinating new work by a young Salvadorian writer explores the nature of this perilous journey, which often leaves those who survive it permanently impaired, either physically or psychologically.

A group of these victims-originally from Honduras-is now petitioning the Mexican Senate to allow them to come into the United States without being detained and/or prosecuted. It’s good to see the pervasive violence visited upon Central Americans living in Mexico explored by the same media which routinely airs the grievances, however trivial, of Mexican illegal immigrants. One would hope that this awareness would extend to their reportage about the American side of the debate, re: illegal immigration, which never seems to recognize the humanity with which this country treats people who, after all, have committed a crime. Not that this generosity of spirit is often reciprocated.

Perhaps this is a sign that reporters are attempting to portray a fuller, more accurate picture of illegal immigration to America. Then again, maybe not.

Close Encounters

The latest installment of Seavey/Perry explores a question that has plagued mankind for ages. Namely, how far will the government go in its efforts to deceive the American public? The answer might surprise you. For those of you interested in the documentary discussed on our program, you might want to check out this film review by The Hollywood Reporter published at the time of its release.

The Gray Lady Shows Her Slip

The Gray Lady Shows Her Slip

 

Followers of this website need not be reminded of the baleful influence the New York Times has had upon immigration policy debates for the better part of five decades. However, the recent flurry of extraconstitutional edicts promulgated by the Obama administration regarding this subject has led its editorial board to engage in even more specious reasoning than is customary at the the Gray Lady. The American Immigration Control Federation dissects the latest proclamation from the sophisticated law-flouter’s paper of record.

Unsurprisingly, like most open borders dogmatists, their logic doesn’t quite match their ideological enthusiasm. However, we’ll let you be the judge

 

 

Criminal Negligence

Criminal Negligence

Most of you are well aware of the fact that this administration, despite its repeated attempts to airbrush its blemishes, has an absolutely atrocious record of immigration enforcement. However, a recent report documents just how negligent the federal government has been in ensuring the safety of American citizens. Nearly 70,000 criminal aliens have been released into the general population of the United States in the last year alone, according to an internal document from the Department of Homeland Security! 

Not surprisingly, the mainstream media has failed to report on yet another milestone in this White House’s campaign to completely dismantle the safeguards which protect the American public from crime, disease, and terrorism, among other gifts brought to us out of love. Thankfully, Senator Sessions is here to remind us of Barack Obama’s willingness prioritize his open borders ideology over the security of his fellow Americans. 

You can read the full report here. Thanks once again to FAIR and the gentleman from Alabama for highlighting the continued disregard this administration has for federal law and the American people. At least some people are paying attention.

Make Them Listen Monday

October 28, 2013

It should come as no surprise that the lavishly-funded open borders lobby is renewing its push to enact wholesale amnesty. Minting millions of new Democratic voters is the President’s only hope of salvaging a second term whose chief accomplishment to date has been the complete unraveling of the President’s chief first term accomplishment.

Civic Action (Anti-Amnesty Demonstration This Saturday)

October 4, 2013

The open borders lobby hasn’t had much luck mustering impressive mobs in their national campaign to pressure lawmakers into rubber-stamping amnesty through Congress. However, that hasn’t prevented it from trying to milk publicity from public spectacles attended mostly by those who aren’t even legally entitled to vote. We’ll be seeing another anti-enforcement rally this weekend, but the good news is that New York Ice  will be there to challenge the faulty premises and tortured logic used by the treason lobby.

Joanna Marzullo gives you all the information you’ll need to participate below.  Read More »
