  • Federal Court Immigration Decisions Breeding More Arizona Enforcement Laws

    If you want prime examples of what is wrong with our federal courts and our immigration policies, two recent cases show how much harm liberal activists who masquerade as “impartial” judges can do—and how illegal immigrants not only game our enforcement system but actually make money off of it. The … More

    Arizona Immigration Law in the Supreme Court: Employers Who Knowingly Hire Illegal Aliens

    The oral arguments in the Supreme Court on Wednesday in U.S. Chamber of Commerce v. Whiting were an interesting mix of tap dancing, political correctness, and duplicity. In Whiting, the Chamber of Commerce sued the state of Arizona over its 2007 Legal Arizona Workers Act, which (1) authorizes the suspension … More

    DREAMing of Amnesty

    The latest attempt to give millions of illegal aliens amnesty may get a vote in the Senate as early as Wednesday.  FOX News is reporting that there have already been three calls this week by administration officials on behalf of President Obama advocating the DREAM Act being pushed by Senators … More

    The ‘‘Right” to Vote of Felons and Noncitizens According to Activist Judges

    As we head into Election Day tomorrow, we should note that there were two decisions last week in federal courts of appeal that directly impact on the right to a secure and fair election, one good and one bad. In Johnson v. Tennessee, a three-judge panel of the U.S. Sixth … More

    Ninth Circuit Sanity on Felon Disenfranchisement

    Good news out of the liberal (and frequently reversed) Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals — an en banc panel just upheld Washington State’s felon-disenfranchisement law and backtracked from a badly decided earlier opinion (Farrakhan v. Gregoire). Liberals have been attacking state laws that take away the right to vote from … More

    Immigration Absconders

    Anyone concerned about immigration should read a guest column in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution by my former Justice Department colleague Mark Metcalf, a former immigration judge who was in the heart of the federal immigration-enforcement process. He points out that in its 2008 annual report, the Department of Homeland Security reported … More

    Justice Must Address Lawlessness Uncovered by Christopher Coates

    Friday’s testimony before the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights by Christopher Coates — a career Justice Department lawyer and supervisor — knocked down the Potemkin Village that the Obama administration has built to obscure why Justice officials dismissed a voter-intimidation case against two members of New Black Panther Party in … More

    Defying DOJ Instructions, Christopher Coates Will Testify Friday on New Black Panther Case

    The news that Christopher Coates, former chief of the Justice Department’s Voting Section, is set to testify Friday before the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights is crucial to the panel’s investigation of allegations that the Obama administration has not enforced the nation’s civil rights laws in a race-neutral manner. The … More

    New Black Panther Party Case Update: E-mails Call into Question the DOJ’s Story

    Stunning new developments in the New Black Panther Party (NBPP) voter-intimidation scandal indicate that high-level Justice Department officials have been misleading the public and Congress. Indeed, they may also have committed perjury before the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights. Judicial Watch recently filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit … More

    Civil Rights in the 21st Century

    In the midst of election primaries, the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights held a day-long conference yesterday in Washington at the National Press Club titled “A New Era – Defining Civil Rights in the 21st Century.” There was a remarkably wide breadth of speakers, including columnist William Raspberry, Clarence B. … More
