Bad Laws Lead to Bad Executive Orders

By Alex Nowrasteh – Governing by executive orders is no way to run an immigration policy, let alone an entire government.

Heritage’s Flawed Immigration Analysis

By Alex Nowrasteh – In the Washington Post today, Jim DeMint and Robert Rector of the Heritage Foundation invoke the free-market pantheon in arguing their anti-immigration stance: “The economist Milton Friedman warned that the United States cannot have open borders and an extensive welfare state.” They’re halfway right about that.
