    In the 1930’s and 1940’s the German Nazi Party coined the phrase “Lebensraum” to describe their doctrine that the German people needed more room to expand and grow. They needed more room in which to work and live. In the German language they needed more "raum tzu arbeit und leben". Hence the term "Lebensraum" came to be used to describe their yearnings for world-wide domination. They believed it was their eventual destiny to re-populate the lands of other countries around them, especially those in eastern Europe and Russia. In practice however they really weren’t too picky about whose country they...

    Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), recently returned from a trip to the Southwest border, says no one is being turned away: “We saw border processing, not border security,” Bachmann said in a news release describing her trip to Brownsville, McAllen and Laredo. “While the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Agency performs admirably on a daily basis, their purpose has become people processing -- not stopping foreign nationals from unauthorized entry into the U.S. “Currently, not one person who attempts to come into the country is stopped; instead, they are taken to a processing center before a decision is made if they...

    Why isn't Mexico doing more to deter unaccompanied minors from Central America from traversing Mexico to cross the U.S.-Mexico border? If this is a humanitarian crisis, then shouldn't Mexico be taking in its neighbors? Mexico's secretary of foreign affairs, Jose Antonio Meade, met with the San Francisco Chronicle editorial board Tuesday, so I had a chance to ask him. His answer was instructive: Mexico offers health services for migrants passing through the country, he said, but when Mexican officials "find an unaccompanied minor within Mexico, he doesn't want to stay in Mexico." And: "At the core of the child's interest...

The most revealing thing about this clip is how little his argument depends on the particular hardships being suffered by kids in Central America. They face gangs, drugs, and violence if they’re sent back, he allows, but there’s no sense that this is some unique crisis requiring a more forgiving policy than might otherwise be advisable. He’s making a straight-up argument, essentially, that if a kid makes it across the border,...

The proposals Wednesday morning amounted to a rebuke of Obama's proposed solution to the crisis on the Southern Border. They put the House on a collision course with the Democratic-run Senate, and increased the likelihood that congressional efforts to address the crisis on the Southern Border, where unaccompanied kids and teens have been showing up by the tens of thousands, will end in stalemate.

The other site is Camp Edwards, part of a military reservation in Cape Cod. State Sen. Don Humason, a Westfield Republican who opposes the idea, confirmed that Patrick's office called him Thursday to give him a heads up about the proposal. Patrick, a Democrat, discussed the proposal during a press conference at 9:45 a.m. providing more details about his intent to accept a request by the U.S. government to...

    Even as Congress struggles with the ongoing crisis at the border and the President plans some sort of meeting with Central American leaders, there seems to be no shortage of elected officials who want to get in on the action. Of course, if you’re looking for help with a huge problem on the Texas border, your first thought might not be to ask somebody in upstate New York. But that won’t stop the city’s mayor, Stephanie Minor. (Go ahead… say “Mayor Minor” five times fast.) The mayor’s latest pitch came in a letter to President Obama. “We have a network...

    "Perhaps the Catholic church would volunteer to pony up some cash for the illegals' care then? Hmm?" "Pope should stay out of it. Matter of civil laws, not church laws." "Thinking that the pope should want the illegals to go to Argentina to get better soccer players for World Cup." Those were just three Twitter responses I was tagged in, in response to a headline about Pope Francis calling so many of us out on our indifference. Based on some of the reactions, you would have thought Pope Francis himself was giving unaccompanied minors rides in his Popemobile into the...

    A flurry of legislative activity to address the border crisis is emerging as a major showdown between Tea Partiers and establishment politicians. Conservatives want to take the fight directly to President Barack Obama, whose executive amnesty policies they say is the primary cause of the problem. Leading the charge on the right are Sens. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), the ranking member of the Senate Budget Committee, and Ted Cruz (R-TX), the wily Tea Party freshman. The political establishment, on the other hand, prefers a legislated fix to a 2008 anti-human trafficking law, which they cite as a key cause of the...

    Today at the Mexican Consulate just south of downtown Houston a protest against the illegal alien border surge was staged by concerned patriots. Apparently the word got out to the opposition forces. There were 25 to 30 illegals and associated supporters there as well. Our side numbered from 40 to 50 while I was on site. We were staged on opposite sides of the street. The illegals (they proclaimed themselves so, chanting "undocumented and unafraid") had a small public address system and had a designated wise-ass on the mike leading chants and taunts which actually were pretty comedic. The...

    Has Bolinas gone Tea Party? That’s what one nationally known uber conservative seems to think—as Free Republic founder Jim Robinson claimed recently that residents of the quirky beachfront enclave had enlisted in the ranks of the Texas border militias on the patrol for illegals. Robinson, writing on the Free Republic website last week about “defend(ing) the border” to “protest Obama’s lawless open borders policies,” name checked the hippy-ish coastal community in his fight to protect America from, if recent headlines are any indication, thousands of desperate children fleeing poverty in the Hispanic third world. “We have independent units from the...

    I recently met a man in his mid-fifties who told me he came to America as a very young person with less than $25 in his pocket and made a pretty good life for himself here. As the son of Albanian immigrants who came here with just the clothes on their back, I love such stories about the people who come to this country, filled with hope for a far better future and a willingness to toil long hours to achieve the American dream. This gentleman told me how he worked 18 or more hour days, six days a...

    While much of the focus in the illegal immigrant surge has been on border security, the federal government does a poor job of ensuring relatives who claim children who enter the U.S. illegally are giving them the care they need, according to internal audits that suggest problems remain despite years of warnings. The Obama administration says its priority is to make sure the children get a fair hearing and protections to which they are entitled — but the recent surge has so overwhelmed officials that they are cutting corners in background checks, meaning some children are turned over to parents...
