    On Arizona and Immigration: Judge Ignores Rule of Law

    As everyone knows, Arizona, chafed by the Federal government’s inability to control the flow of illegal immigrants into the State, enacted Senate Bill 1070 (PDF) in an effort to do something about the resulting collateral damage to it and its citizens. Now, a federal judge appointed by President Clinton, Susan Bolton, … More

    Hidden Cameras Reveal Border Remains Porous

    In its latest hidden camera video release, the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) shows the continuing porousness of America’s southern border.

    Better Late Than Never: LA Times Recognizes Arizona Isn’t the Only State Battling Illegal Immigration

    According to The Los Angeles Times many states have enacted laws similar to the Arizona law aimed at curbing activities related to illegal immigration.

    Politics Before Law in Obama’s Arizona Suit

    The Justice Department filed its expected lawsuit against Arizona’s new immigration law (S.B. 1070) yesterday and issued a press release trumpeting its action. It is clear from reading the lawsuit and the press release that politics—not an objective analysis of Arizona’s law—is driving the Justice Department’s action. This should be … More

    More Arizona Bashing

    Today, Attorney General Eric Holder held a pep rally for state and local law enforcement officials who object to the Arizona immigration law.

    Back to the Border

    The President has announced he plans to send up to 1,200 troops to the border with Mexico, a move that prompts many questions. Sending troops to the border makes sense, when it makes sense—in other words, if it is an appropriate, effective, and efficient use of military manpower. In 2006, … More

    Rolling Arizona Just Business as Usual for Obama DOJ

    As Andy McCarthy pointed out over at National Review Online, Attorney General Eric Holder seems to be profiling Arizona. Holder said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” two weeks ago that the Justice Department was “considering” filing a lawsuit opposing Arizona’s immigration enforcement law. Yet a week ago he admitted in … More

    Morning Bell: Raising Arizona's Defense

    It isn’t easy being Arizona these days, especially when President Barack Obama puts politics before Americans’ interests, a foreign head of state before the United States, and an agenda of apology before much-needed, sensible reforms. But that’s just what happened this week when Mexican President Felipe Calderon visited Washington, DC. … More

    Bowing Again, to Mexico this Time

    Undeterred by the lack of success so far of the Obama Doctrine (apologize for America to foreign leaders, and if that doesn’t work, bow), President Obama today took the unprecedented step of publicly siding with Mexico against the state of Arizona. President Obama did this while standing next to the … More
