The Democrat’s Child Endangerment Exception: Not a Crime for Illegal Aliens

by Steve MacDonald July 10, 2018

We had separation week, but as it turns into Separation Summer, I had another thought about how hypocritical the far-left is on the so-called issue of Trump separating families. If you walked your children across an unforgiving desert or placed them in the company of narco-terrorists, drug dealers, human traffickers, or gang members, sometimes for […]

Family Separation Week Bonus: Democrats Reject ‘Bi-Partisan’ Legislative Fix To Stop “Family Separations”

by Steve MacDonald June 21, 2018

Border Security and immigration policy are matters of law. In a land of laws, with the rule of law, the law defines the terms. In America, if you come here without permission, you can get arrested, no matter what your age or who may be with you. This leads to parents getting separated from their […]

Seeking Asylum Separates ‘Parents’ From “Children” Especially When You Lie About It

by Steve MacDonald June 20, 2018

Of the few “children” who cross the border illegally “accompanied” by a parent or family member the most common cause of separation is seeking asylum. If they just turned around and went home, they’d never have to part with their kids. If they applied to enter legally, they’d never be separated from their kids. But by […]

It’s Family Separation Week at CNN – Retaliatory Carpet Truth Bombing Required

by Steve MacDonald June 19, 2018

One of the televisions at Cardiac Rehab was on CNN this morning. The volume is down (thank the Lord), but it has closed captioning, so you can read (or not) what’s important to the Leader in Fake News. It’s all about “separating families.” The whole time I was there. CNN is, not unexpectedly, all in […]

Media Face-palm – Blames Trump for Pics of Kids In Cages…from Obama Era

by Steve MacDonald May 29, 2018

The media went nutty (as I expect did the Never-Trumpers) over photos of children in cages attributed to Mr. Trump’s border enforcement but the images were taken…during the Obama administration. The photos appeared in the Arizona Republic in 2014 during former President Barack Obama’s second term to illustrate the over 1,000 children detained by authorities trying […]

I’m trying to find some information in the second level basement of my emails – with well over 10GB of emails, there’s a lot of sub-basements to look through.  I stumbled across this Letter to the Editor and unfortunately, it rings as true today as it did back in 2006 (reformatted): Doug Lambert’s column pointed […]

by Steve MacDonald February 16, 2018

Immigration Control and Enforcement (ICE) just spent the week sweeping through Los Angeles scooping up criminal aliens and citing business who hire them for violating federal law.

Do Modern Democrats Vote for Anything That Will Make Government Smaller?

by Steve MacDonald February 8, 2018

Decriminalizing marijuana sounds like is a liberty issue. Not so for Democrats. Addressing the opioid epidemic is sold as an issue of compassion, but to the professional left, it is an opportunity. Sex trafficking, repackaged and sold as a matter of freedom under the banner of legalized prostitution is not about freedom at all. And the Progressive obsession […]

Schumer Shutdown – Chuckie Schumer blinks, reads polls, take that long dive into political “Cave in”

by Skip January 22, 2018

And the Democrat Minority Leader, Chuck Schumer (D/Progressive – NY) has just caved into to the person that the Democrats believe is the stupidest person in the world: President Donald Trump.  How does that even work that the stupid guy won – and won easily yet again? I doubted it was possible, but Dems have […]

ICE By The Numbers – Immigration Enforcement Report for 2017

by Steve MacDonald December 6, 2017

Mr. Trump took a unique position on Illegal Immigration and international borders when he became president. He let the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) enforce the existing immigration laws. And letting them off the leash Obama put them on has produced some results.

DISQUS Doodlings – Ma’am, didn’t you forget to answer the Primary Question?

by Skip October 20, 2017

Yeah, I know – I’ve been spending perhaps a bit too much time over at a couple of Lefty sites lately.  Once again, yet another defense against deportation that forgets to bring up the MOST important question / answer.  It’s almost as if this ACLU lawyer (“Jeanne Hruska is policy director for ACLU-NH”.) did it […]

Illegal Immigrants Not that Hard to Find After All?

by Steve MacDonald April 20, 2017

How many times did you hear some politician, bureaucrat, or talking head say we’d never be able to find all those illegal immigrants? It seems like it was not as big a problem as they suggested but that the Obama administration did its best to make it worse. The Obama administration left the government’s deportation force […]

I am so tired of hearing the “let them break our immigration law” musty heads mantra on “it is not illegal to be here, it’s only illegal to enter without documentation”.  Well GUESS WHAT!  New US Attorney General Jeff Session has been making that into the dust it always deserved – and now is doubling, […]
