Trump is Against Legal Immigration Too

By Alex Nowrasteh – When I criticize Donald Trump’s immigration policy proposals, the most common response is some variant of “Trump is against ILLEGAL immigration, not LEGAL immigration. Get your facts straight.” Although Trump makes contradictory statements on many topics, allowing virtually any supporter to find a quote in support of his or her preferred policy […]

Shining “the Gospel” Outside the Bushel

As comforting as it is to be able to blame others – especially Democrats – for the world’s problems, a neglected portion of “The Gospel” tells us to correct those who create problems. We are supposed to “rebuke” them: talk to them – reason with them. It is not “love” to leave a neighbor’s sin […]

“Never Trump” and the Bible

Do delegates to the July 18-21 Republican Convention, who are “bound” to vote for Trump, have the legal right to vote differently from the first ballot? If they do, will it be politically smart for delegates to vote differently than the majority of voters sending them to Cleveland? Does God have an opinion about any […]

Immigration restrictionism is his most popular policy position. That position and the way he’s talked about it have defined his candidacy and set him apart from the get […]

Gary Johnson for President

Immigrants and their friends look to Democrats and see presidential candidates whose words are often quite friendly but whose votes have been terrifying; and to Republicans and see two candidates whose words are terrifying, and whose deeds – well, Cruz’ are even more terrifying, and Trump, who knows what he will do?

Republican & Democrat Immigration Platforms similar

Is There Really a Difference Between the Republican and Democrat Platforms on Immigration? Side by side comparison of how the Republican and Democrat parties say they want to change immigration law reveals no clear, substantial difference. That is, the party platforms (the formal positions voted for by a majority of activists within each party) provide […]

Linda Vega: The Creation of a new GOP: FrankenTRUMP

By Linda Vega – Politics, in America, have changed and are now deciding how a SUPER POWER, our country, will be led by an unknown, self-proclaimed demagogue contender who champions himself as the one who will make “American Great Again.” In 2008, we heard similar rhetoric from a candidate who promised us hope and change […]

Are “Donald Trump Conservatives” Irrational?

By Marcial Bonifacio – My friends and American countrymen, today I write in disappointment and dismay at so-called conservatives and evangelicals who supported Donald Trump in the states which logically and rightfully should have supported Ted Cruz. First and foremost, the term “Trump conservative” is an oxymoron, comparable to a Catholic Protestant, a Marxist businessman, […]
