Paul Ryan called “traitor” for agreeing with part of Trump

Paul Ryan, speaker of the U.S. House, told CNN Thursday that the “deportation force” promised by President Trump “isn’t happening”, which cannot be documented to differ from Trump’s own detail-deprived promises about how he is going to think up a policy that will “make everybody happy” and will not focus on kids brought here by […]

English translation La victoria de Donald Trump en la elección presidencial es una tremenda sorpresa política. El asunto más importante resaltado por Trump fue la inmigración —y no titubeó al expresar su postura restrictiva. Aunque los datos […]

Birthday Card for Ted Cruz

Ted Cruz wants you to sign his birthday card. You can at http://support.tedcruz.org/birthday/. You even get to add your own personal message to him, which I expect there is a good chance he will actually read, with the presidential campaign over and his Senate re-election two years away. Plus, he ASKED for “birthday wishes”.  (After you […]

Gary Johnson ‘Gets’ Immigration Reform

by Bob Quasius – Of the top four presidential candidates, only Gov. Gary Johnson ‘gets it’ when it come to fixing immigration. From Gov. Gary Johnson’s recent op-ed in CNN: “Of those who did hike the mountains of Arizona or stow away in a container ship, how many of them would have rather come here […]

Chapman: very near the truth

I was startled by a statement you made in “Trump’s Economic Fraud”. In making your case that presidents really have little power to keep lavish promises to create new jobs because of limits way beyond their control, you wrote, “the next president will face headwinds — sluggish growth abroad, an aging population and an immigration […]

Your Chance to Message Trump

Donald Trump is hosting a survey asking us what points he should make in his debates with Hillary. (Sept 26, Oct 9, 19; VP debate, Oct 4) The survey doesn’t just let you pick from multiple choice canned answers to finely spun questions, but lets you write your own answers to unusually spin-free questions. The […]

AARP’s Stake in Immigration Reform

AARP wants to save Social Security – there are only 2.5 taxpayers for every recipient. More immigration would directly raise that threatening ratio. AARP, the organization for senior citizens, is pushing hard for reform of Social Security. John Hishta, the Sr. Vice President of Campaigns for AARP, spoke in Des Moines Wednesday morning about the […]

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 […]

EE.UU.: El derecho a la ciudadanía por nacimiento fomenta la asimilación

Alex Nowrasteh – Muchos Republicanos están peleándose para hacer eco del llamado que hizo Donald Trumppara ponerle fin al derecho a la ciudadanía por nacimiento. Los expertos estarán debatiendo la legalidad de esto por algún tiempo —muchos dicen que se requeriría una enmienda constitucional— pero el impacto en el mundo real del derecho a la […]

How to Deal with Immigrant Crime

By Alex Nowrasteh – Immigrants are less crime-prone than native-born Americans but that is small solace to those affected by criminals born in another country. Since 2010, 124 unlawful immigrants released by the U.S. government have been charged with 135 homicide-related crimes according to information obtained by the House Judiciary Committee. Many of those criminals were released […]
