    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

    Mexico Anti-Cartel Aid: Still Strangling in Red Tape

    President Calderon's Misleading Claim

    In his speech before a Joint Session of Congress yesterday, President Felipe Calderon of Mexico made a bold claim. He asserted that: Just to give you an idea, we have seized 75,000 guns and assault weapons in Mexico in the last three years. And more than 80 percent of those … 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

    Economic Freedom Remains Elusive to Our Neighbors to the South

    Mexican President, Felipe Calderon, is set to address a joint session of Congress today to address issues of mutual interest on both sides of our almost two thousand mile border.  Among the issues that will likely dominate Calderon’s prepared remarks will include the ongoing drug violence engulfing Mexico and threatening … More

    Obama Security Team in Mexico: The Threat Closer to Home

    The Obama Administration and Americans in general face a deadly threat close to home.  The threat is posed by the violence of Mexico’s murderous drug trafficking cartels and gangs that straddle the U.S.-Mexico border.   One group of Mexican killers, the Barrio Azteca, is believed responsible for the cold-blooded murder of … More
