Do Immigrants Steal Jobs?

By Bob Quasius – Professor Ben Powell of Suffolk University debunks the myth that immigrants steal jobs. I agree completely! The foundation for this myth is the flawed notion that jobs are a zero sum game, when in reality jobs are constantly created and destroyed due to our dynamic economy. Economist Alex Nowrasteh has also […]

Thomas Sowell on Immigration

By Alex Nowrasteh - Thomas Sowell is an influential and prolific writer whose books span the social sciences. My shelves are full of them, decorated with underlines, marginalia, and dog-eared pages. But in his recent columns and comments on immigration, Sowell has not approached that topic with the same rigorous attention to detail that he has […]

Why is America deporting border refugees to the murder capital of the world?

On Monday, July 14, the first wave of 38 deportees from the border crisis arrived back in their home country of Honduras. The country’s first lady and members of the media were there to greet them. Promises were made that the 38 refugees, all single women and children, would be taken care of, but the […]

“For I Was a Stranger” debate #3: Proofobia

By Dave Leach – “Proofobia”: calling an interpretation “wrong” without offering an alternative; irritation with a request for evidence. This is the rest of my interaction with Sandra Lee Smith. The first portion was #2 of this series, about the label “lawbreakers” applied to those for whom our laws have made obedience impossible. This is […]

Another Restrictionist Bible Study

Bryan Fischer’s restrictionist Bible study [in support of further restrictions on how many or who can come legally] argues that we should not open up our immigration quotas unless we first require them to all worship as America’s Founders did. Doesn’t that assume America’s Founders worshiped the same way? Fisher didn’t explain what way that […]

Immigration’s Deadliest Threat

By Dave Leach – Immigration’s deadliest threat was missed by Zack Taylor, retired border control agent, who said the Russian Mafia is sneaking “dirty bombs” and criminal sabateurs across an unpatrolled section of our border while Obama’s CIA facilitates the plan in Central America and border patrol agents are told not to ever fire their […]

Charles Long – Vicks for the Mental Sinuses

By Dave Leach – Immigration’s mental sinuses might get some relief through a congressional candidate, Dr. Charles Long. An immigration vision so simple and so fresh, that the entrenched objections based on ignorance of relevant facts have not yet been formulated, is offered by Maryland congressional candidate Charles Long. Forget welfare concerns; he talks only […]

Mexican Immigration Policy Lowers the Cost of Central American Migration to the US

By Alex Nowrasteh – One persistent American complaint about the Mexican government’s opposition to immigration laws like Arizona’s SB-1070 is that Mexico’s immigration policy is far more restrictive than that of the United States or anything proposed in Arizona. In 2010, Representative Ted Poe (R-TX) articulately pointed out the Mexican government’s blatant hypocrisy. Brutal Mexican […]

Why Aren’t Child Migrants Fleeing to the U.S. From Nicaragua?

By Alex Nowrasteh – U.S. policy is equally generous to unaccompanied children (UAC) from El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua — but today’s child migrants are not coming from Nicaragua. Explaining why Nicaraguan UAC are not part of the recent surge may help explain why so many are coming from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras […]
