Rebuttal of Senator Sessions’ Anti-Immigration Talking Points

On Tuesday, Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) sent out an email memo with talking points for opponents of immigration reform. Most of the points are based on misinterpretations of government reports, cherry-picked findings by organizations that engage in statistical chicanery, or just flat-out incorrect. These anti-immigration arguments do not advance a logical argument against immigration. Here […]

By Alex Nowrasteh – The Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) has been releasing a series of reports claiming that immigrants are benefiting from the slightly recovering job market while natives are not.

Do credentials mean anything?

By Dave Leach – The mistake of immigration restrictionists is not that they believe the claims of the economic catastrophe caused by immigrants which are made by self-ordained “researchers” with no training in economics.

With Tea Party Losses, Immigration and the USA Win

By Raoul Lowery Contreras – It wasn’t just the Tea Party that lost in last week’s Ohio and North Carolina Republican primaries, it was the heart and soul of the ant-immigrant cabal that hides behind illegal immigration to oppose immigration and people from all over the world who come to work, live and to contribute […]

It’s easier to attack the Bible’s defenders than the Bible

By Dave Leach <> It must have something to do with the article I posted:  “Numbers USA’s Bible study doesn’t quote the Bible”. Number’s USA’s article had claimed the Bible is on the side restricting legal immigration. It quoted an “evangelical leader” whose website on the subject likewise didn’t quote a single verse on the […]
