    Ohio Gov. John Kasich seized second place in the New Hampshire primary on Tuesday evening, in a race Donald Trump had dominated since the fall. But others had also spent time in the second place slot behind Trump, including former Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina after her strong undercard debate performance in September; and Dr. Ben Carson, who was in second for much of the autumn, but finished in last place on Tuesday evening. What happened? A look at the RealClearPolitics averages allows us to pinpoint the exact moment when Carson began to fade, never to recover: Nov. 13, 2015....

    President Obama's latest budget predicts some 75,000 unaccompanied illegal immigrant children will sneak into the U.S. and have to be captured and cared for next year, suggesting the surge that began in 2014 will outlast this administration. Mr. Obama included $319 million in his 2017 blueprint to handle the children and warned that Homeland Security may request additional money if the surge is larger than predicted.

    Our judicial branch of government is irrevocably broken, even more so than the other two branches. To begin with, the entire premise of the judiciary being the final arbiter over constitutional questions is wrong. They have usurped power beyond the imagination of our Founders, even those who were skeptical of Article III. Worse, they refuse to use the Constitution as originally conceived as the guideline for determining the constitutionality of laws. Finally, even when applying the Constitution or statutes to relevant cases, they are incapable of divorcing their political views from legal arguments. ...overturning Obama's executive amnesty is the quintessential...

That's one reason Morris said he's ready to defy Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials and offer his place of worship as a refuge for Central Americans facing imminent deportation to a region with escalating violence. "We are willing to fight this tooth and nail," said Morris, 82. "If ICE wants to come get them, they're going to have to break down the church door." Morris' congregation is one of...

    Judith Benitez had gone most of her adult life without knowing how to drive. The 35-year-old woman from Mexico who is in the U.S. illegally would ask family members for rides to pick up her children from school. Trips to the grocery store or the doctor's office were complicated. That changed last year when Assembly Bill 60 was implemented, granting people in the country illegally the right to obtain driver's licenses in California. "Truthfully, it was an extremely emotional time because having a [driver's] license isn't just any little thing," she said. "We feel a little more protected."

    Immigration isn't just another issue. Despite his "does not compute" glitch Saturday night (which will likely dog him for the rest of his career, like Rick Perry's "oops" and Dan Quayle's "you're no Jack Kennedy" moment), Marco Rubio is still a live contender for the nomination. So it remains important to explain why I think his immigration record disqualifies him from being the 2016 nominee. Many conservatives who admire Rubio's genuine political talent agree that his shilling for Chuck Schumer's Gang of Eight bill was bad. But they offer two reasons that this should not be an impediment to his...

I'll even concede that Rubio got into bed with Schumer because he was auditioning for the job of Republican We Can Do Business With, a deal-maker who can get things done, and a deal on...

    Eagle Forum has published a memo detailing Marco Rubio's lies to conservatives in his effort to get Chuck Schumer's immigration bill passed. "Lies" is a strong word, but it's the only word that fits. This wasn't the natural trimming of politicians, like Rubio's justification of sugar subsidies in the service of his financial patrons the Fanjul brothers. From Cicero to Reagan, all successful politicians engage in misdirection or exploit ambiguity (including all the other current Republican hopefuls). In this case, though, Rubio led a Clintonian campaign of calculated falsehoods designed to sell Schumer's Gang of Eight bill to conservatives.

In 2014, more people died from drug overdoses than any year in U.S. history: 47,055. That's more than die in car accidents -- and it's not even close. This is a huge, horrible problem -- and it's a problem caused entirely by the fact that Mexico is on our southern border.

Rep. Steve King (R-IA), a passionate anti-immigrant hardliner, will serve as chairman. The task force will conduct hearings and investigations “relating to separation of powers and executive overreach issues,” according to the resolution approved on a voice vote on Wednesday. It’s unclear which of President Obama’s executive actions the task force will focus on, but immigration policies will...

("If you bring people from a violent civilization into a less-violent civilization, you're going to have more violence right? It's like pouring hot water into cold water, does it raise the temperature or not?") But the thing is that no one -- outside the Beltway -- takes him all that seriously. The photo accompanying Politico's report of an anti-immigration in Majority Leader Eric Cantor's Richmond, Va., district shows exactly 14 people. (Politico claims a grand total...

    When you were a rowdy teen, your parents were the Establishment. Now that you're a parent, what are you? The anti-establishment, cool parent? Not likely. Rather, you're a grownup who tries to keep the peace in your discordant household; who tries to negotiate among self-interested, imperfect family members who have competing goods and goals; and who tries to instill a long-range vision for the future in your desire-ridden family who wants instant self-gratification. Welcome to the Establishment. You're a bona fide member now. Here's a defense of the amorphous, notional Establishment, as I see it, if it even exists in...

    "At what point in Donald Trump’s inaugural address do you figure the GOP establishment will finally grasp what’s been happening? The establishment, not “elites” because they’re mostly bland functionaries who went to third-rate schools — have thrown absolutely everything they have at Trump." (SNIP) And maybe that’s why they are rallying behind a loser like Rubio who attended Tarkio College and Santa Fe Community College?

    Rick Santorum called for immigration reform on Tuesday, saying that without newcomers from abroad the United States is going to shrink. “I think the fact that we send some of those people back and don’t give them the opportunity to participate here is wrong,” Santorum told POLITICO. (SNIP) Santorum didn’t advocate for a specific immigration policy while he spoke with POLITICO following an appearance at Books-A-Million in McLean, Va., where he signed copies of his book, “American Patriots.” Santorum, sporting his signature sweater vest, was also promoting Patriot Voices, the 501(c)4 group he launched in June to support conservative candidates.

    The interview with Univision was in Spanish- Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) told Univision yesterday that legalization of illegal immigrants will come first and then new border security measures. The Examiner reported: In a Spanish-language interview Sunday with the network Univision, Sen. Marco Rubio, the leading Republican on the Gang of Eight comprehensive immigration reform group, made his strongest statement yet that legalization of the nation's estimated 11 million illegal immigrants must happen before any new border security or internal enforcement measures are in place, and will in no way be conditional on any security requirements. "Let's be clear," Rubio said....

    To see just how far the once-odds-on favorite in the Republican presidential race has fallen, let's look back last year, when Rep. Pete Sessions (Tex.), a senior House Republican, endorsed Jeb Bush for president: -snip- "I'm endorsing Jeb Bush. But that was 10 months ago. He has since then not sold himself as well as he had wanted," Sessions told National Journal's Daniel Newhauser and Alex Rogers. "Everybody is weighing and balancing what they know now that they didn't know 10 months ago, and I think that the person who gets closest to me is a [Marco] Rubio."

    TRANSCRIPT RUSH: I have to say one thing, one more thing, one more time. I do not like -- and I've got a Reuters story: "Marco Rubio Emerges Champion of Battered Republican Establishment." Another Reuters story, headline: "Republican Cruz Calls Iowa Win a Victory for Conservative Grassroots." I do not like, speaking for myself, I don't like this idea that Marco Rubio is all of a sudden being labeled as an establishment candidate. I know that Rubio's got the baggage of that Gang of Eight bill and I know that in many people's minds he's got the baggage of wanting...

    Lindsey Graham had some harsh words for Marco Rubio on Tuesday, particularly on his stance on abortion and immigration which he warned would keep women and Hispanics from joining the party. “Marco has no exceptions for rape and incest,” the South Carolina senator said in an interview with MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “I think it’s going to be very hard to grow the party among women if you’re gonna tell young women, ‘If you get raped, you’ve gotta carry the child of the rapist. Most pro-life people don’t go there, that will not sell in New Hampshire.” Graham, who dropped out...
