Worse than Obama?

Posted November 26, 2015, Thanksgiving. If anything written here is wrong, please correct me. I like thoughtful, well-sourced […]

by Alex Gonzalez – Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick says that the will “use fast-track procedures to crack down on “sanctuary” policies for undocumented immigrants if a special session were to be called.” Nevertheless, The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) own federal program guidelines clearly state that county jails should: maintain custody of the priority individual for a […]

Syrian Refugees Don’t Pose a Serious Security Threat

By Alex Nowrasteh – Of the 859,629 refugees admitted from 2001 onwards, only three have been convicted of planning terrorist attacks on targets outside of the United States, and none was successfully carried out. That is one terrorism-planning conviction for every 286,543 refugees that have been admitted. To put that in perspective, about 1 in […]

Costs to citizens of ending birthright citizenship – Birthright Idiotship

Should babies of “illegal aliens” born here be counted as citizens? And while we’re checking, does the Constitution answer this: may we enslave “illegals”? The answer depends on the meaning of “jurisdiction” in the 14th Amendment according, some say, to what one Senator in 1866 meant by one sentence. Half the Republican presidential candidates want […]

Rand Paul: a letter to his staff

A couple of years ago I had the opportunity to slip Senator Rand Paul a copy of my Bible study on immigration, at a conference for pastors. But since then I have been unable to get a response from him or his staff. So it was wonderful to get an email from his Western Iowa […]
