    The issue of illegal immigration has been a red-hot topic in my hometown community of Newport Beach/Costa Mesa, Orange County, Southern California. Sincere and heart-felt arguments have been made on both sides of the issue. However, many of those who write letters to the local paper in support of illegal immigration make it sound like Costa Mesa is the only place in the nation whose people favor the enforcement of our immigration laws. They suggest that those elected officials supporting these laws are just a small local band guilty of meanness, bigotry, and racism. Nothing could be further from the...

  • Please, can my sister become an illegal immigrant?

    May I please apply for illegal-immigrant status for my sister? This is an audacious request, I know, given that she is not ideal immigrant material by America's exacting standards. My sibling is a South-African Caucasian, who speaks no Spanish. Alas, she speaks the language of the American founders (in her defense, her facility with the English language is not nearly as good as theirs was.) Her other shortfall is that she manages to operate a profitable business in one of the most dangerous places on earth, subject to the world's most extreme race-based wealth distribution laws ("Black Economic Empowerment"). If...
  • Path to national suicide (Pat Buchanan on Illegal Immigration)

    "At what point, then, is the approach of danger to be expected? "I answer, if it ever reach us, it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide." So said Abe Lincoln to the Young Men's Lyceum in Springfield. Observing the Senate last week, and looking over the latest figures from the Census Bureau, America is now risking national suicide. Last week, senators meeting in secret produced a bill to...
  • Immigration Bill Fractures Political Ranks

    Hispanic Business ^ | May 21, 2007 | Mark Z. Barabak
    The U.S. Senate's compromise immigration bill offers something for everyone to hate, including presidential candidates forced to confront the divisive issue. Unlike the war in Iraq, which separates lawmakers mainly along party lines, immigration fractures Republican and Democratic ranks from within: splitting business interests from social conservatives, dividing labor from Hispanic groups. "The issue is fraught with danger," said John Anzalone, a Democratic pollster. "It's one where it's tough to please everybody within your base or coalition." For that reason, perhaps, the only major candidate who embraced the bipartisan proposal announced Thursday was Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., -- which was...
  • Pelosi Criticizes Immigration 'Point System'

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has voiced criticism of the Senate and White House’s immigration agreement, saying the temporary worker program would "disrupt” families. "I have serious objections to the point system that is in the bill now,” the California Democrat said on ABC’s "This Week” on Sunday. "Yes, we should deal with the backlog [of workers seeking citizenship]. I completely agree with that. But the family unification principles, which had been fundamental to American immigration, are disrupted by what is in there now.” Pelosi was referring to the point system in the Senate bill, which would grant those seeking citizenship...
  • The Immigration Bill: Comprehensive or Incomprehensible?

    The Immigration Bill: Comprehensive or Incomprehensible? By Fred Thompson Saturday, May 19, 2007 Most Americans know that we have an illegal immigration problem in this country, with perhaps as many as 20 million people residing here unlawfully. And I think most Americans have a pretty good idea about how to at least start solving the problem – secure our nation’s borders. But there’s an old saying in Washington that, in dealing with any tough issue, half the politicians hope that citizens don’t understand it while the other half fear that people actually do. This kind of thinking was apparent with...

    UNDOCUMENTED migrants are rushing to Mexico's border with Arizona, encouraged by the prospect of a guest-worker programme in the United States and anticipating a toughening of border security that would make a dangerous journey even more perilous.Detentions by the US border patrol in south-central Arizona, the busiest migrant-smuggling area, are up by more than 26 per cent since 1 October - 105,803, compared with 78,024 for the same period last year. Along the entire US- Mexico border, arrests have risen by 9 per cent. Many migrants say they are being encouraged by relatives in the US, who are betting on...

    City Journal The Immigrant Gang Plague Heather Mac Donald        Summer 2004 Before immigration optimists issue another rosy prognosis for America’s multicultural future, they might visit Belmont High School in Los Angeles’s overwhelmingly Hispanic, gang-ridden Rampart district. “Upward and onward” is not a phrase that comes to mind when speaking to the first- and second-generation immigrant teens milling around the school this January.“Most of the people I used to hang out with when I first came to the school have dropped out,” observes Jackie, a vivacious illegal alien from Guatemala. “Others got kicked out or got into drugs. Five graduated,...

    "The Nation-State Is Finished" by William F. Jasper Robert Bartley, a closet one-worlder at the WSJ, used his newspaper’s "conservative" clout to seduce American business leaders into sacrificing U.S. sovereignty for trade. ‘‘What in blazes can President Bush be thinking?" That has been the general response — on talk radio and in media surveys, Internet postings and letters-to-the-editor — of many current and former Bush supporters angered and confused by the president’s immigration proposals. These folks would not have been surprised by the president’s outrageous announcement on January 7 or his remarks the following week at the Summit of the...
