Thumbnail image for Obama administration is dumping illegals…

Is it just me or does anyone else think the Obama administration is dumping illegals all over the place to create pressure for some form of quick and easy immigration reform? They tried to run guns into Mexico so they could make the case that US guns ended up in the hands of drug lords.  […]

Notable Quote: Theodore Roosevelt On Immigrants

Immigration and the Market Economy

by Steve MacDonald June 18, 2013

Dr. Thomas Sowell makes a point that should seem obvious to any pro-market economy Republican… Farmers may wish for more farm workers, just as any of us may wish for anything we would like to have.
