Accepting Syrian Refugees isn’t about Mercy or Charity

Understand that the Administration isn’t accepting tens of thousands of Syrian migrants, or tens of millions of South American migrants out of the goodness of their hearts. Democrats don’t do “goodness of their hearts.” If they did, Republicans wouldn’t outperform them on charitable giving.

Democrats are cold-blooded, heartless, cruel totalitarians. Their welfare has destroyed Black families – something not even slavery could do. Their “education” policies have churned out kids dumber every year than the preceding. Their economic policies have created Detroit, Ferguson, Baltimore, E. St Louis, E. San Jose, and municipal bankruptcies – and states ([…]

Cruz Blows Megyn Immigration Question

Megyn asked Cruz stupid questions on immigration, addressed him as an imperial president: what are YOU going to do about X?

He answered that he’d do Y. Dumb.

He SHOULD HAVE SAID,

“Look, Megyn, you know the Constitution gives no role to the president in domestic policy. The job of the president is to enforce the law, and that’s what Obama has not been doing & what GOP leadership has let him get away with.

“I’m going to do the job of the president – act as a Constitutional president. For a change.

“We have laws dealing with immigration. The […]

Maybe Trump Understands What He’s Doing re: Immigration

… and maybe it’s different than you think.

I’d like to suggest that people look at Trump’s immigration ideas a bit differently. Trump says, essentially – build a wall then deport everyone. Two parts.

While many disagree on the latter – do we deport everyone? Only violent felons? Every felon? Everyone ever convicted of a misdemeanor? Everyone over/under some random age? – most agree that any nation has the right to control its borders.

Rather than focusing on the whom-do-we-deport part, maybe we should be focusing on the order of the two parts.

When illegals last bubbled to the top […]

Reasonable Immigration Policies in our Immigrant-Built Nation

Just as a change from today’s (everyday’s?) punditry, how about a realistic discussion of immigration policy?

First off, our immigration system isn’t “broken.” It’s not enforced. The difference is substantial.

For those unaware of our current – bipartisan, written by Ted Kennedy, passed by a Democrat Congress and signed by Reagan – immigration laws, here’s the deal. We allow legal immigration under defined circumstances from defined countries. We limit it to our benefit, which all nations do. We require that any immigrant be able to show a job or relatives committed to their support, and prohibit immigrants from becoming a […]

Lt. Calley, My Lai and DHS

Boehner is about to file a suit to force the president to obey the law. He may or may not have standing to do so. But there’s a better way, one we already know works.

The root of the problem is: can the president order his branch to ignore or defy the law, to act in an illegal manner?

That sounds like a silly question. But the fact is that every employee, manager and executive in that branch of government is bound FIRST by the law and THEN by the head of that branch of government

We have heard the […]
