End the Immigration War and Open the Borders

by
With much fanfare, the federal government recently announced it had smashed the largest ever alien-smuggling ring, which allegedly brought thousands of Indians and other foreigners into the United States for $20,000 a head. In announcing the results of the yearlong operation, code-named "Operation Seek and Keep," Attorney General Janet ... [click for more]

The Heart of Mexican Independence

Last summer, I spent a two-week vacation studying Spanish in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, which is located in the heart of Mexico, about three hours north of Mexico City. This is the area of Mexico where the fight for independence from Spanish rule began in 1810. On September 16 of ... [click for more]

Tear Down the Wall and Open the Borders

by
Perhaps we ought to lament the tearing down of the Berlin Wall. It might have been less costly and more efficient to simply move it to the southern border of the United States. Four years ago, the federal government initiated Operation Gatekeeper, a massive crackdown on illegal immigration into California. ... [click for more]

Domestic Passports for Hispanic-Americans

by
All of us have become accustomed to traveling with our passports when we leave the United States.

Part 1 | Part 2 Did you ever think you would see the day when the United States government would be forcing people into communism?

Why Not Open the Borders?

by
Thirty years ago, Democrats and Republicans sent 60,000 men from my generation to their deaths in an undeclared war in Southeast Asia. The rationale? To save people from the horrors of communism. Apparently communism is not so horrible anymore. Today, if Cuban citizens flee communist tyranny, the biggest danger they ... [click for more]

Closed Minds on Open Borders, Part 1

Some Free-Enterprise System

by
The booming U.S. high-tech industry is doing so well it can't find enough well-trained employees to handle all the work. There are too few prospects in the United States to fill the need, so companies have recruited abroad. The problem is that a foreign-born person can't just move to the ... [click for more]

Plundering Immigrants and Other Travelers

by
Obscure federal regulations give government agents the power to plunder private citizens. Largely in order to suppress tax evasion, in 1970 Congress enacted the fraudulently named Bank Secrecy Act. This act requires that anyone who travels abroad and carries more than $10,000 in cash must fill out Customs Form ... [click for more]

Foreign Workers are Good for America

by
The U.S. Labor Department says the program that allows foreigners to work in this country is a "sham" because it fails to protect American workers' jobs and wages. Under the program, thousands of noncitizens work in the United States. But those workers are supposed to have "unique" skills ... [click for more]

Geniuses from Abroad

by
The current immigration debate founders on ignorance of one huge fact: Without immigration, the U.S. would not exist as a world power. Without immigration, the U.S. could not have produced the computerized weapons that induced the Soviet Union to surrender in the arms race. Without immigration, the U.S. could not have built the atomic bomb ... [click for more]

Close the Newport–Costa Mesa Border

by
They're coming by the carload! Immigrants from Newport Beach, California, who cross our Costa Mesa, California, border with impunity, take our jobs, eat our food, drink our liquor, and marry our women. Every day I see it. Mercedeses, Acuras, Rollses, BMWs, and Lexus crossing the border into Costa Mesa where they come ... [click for more]
