I agree that it is certainly a good
thing that the Washington Post published Center
for Immigration Studies Steven Camarota`s op-ed piece
How Many Americans?
But don`t take it as a harbinger of
things to come.
The print media`s policy—not
written anywhere but clearly in evidence—is to throw
those who oppose unlimited immigration the occasional
bone in the form of an op-ed or a critical letter to the
That way, you can`t go to the
publishers and say: "You never print our side
of the story."
They, in turn, would reply to you:
"You`re wrong. We published that op-ed three months ago
and a letter last Tuesday."
In the meantime, though, they`ve also
published three dozen biased stories, a couple of
scathing editorials and several
op-ed pieces from immigration lawyers.

IIf only politics worked as Epstein
One does not join Paul`s movement
and then hope to convince him to change his Libertarian
immigration views. That sounds like a woman who marries
a man because she hopes to redo him after the wedding.
It would be better to find a more
suitable groom since change, as we all know, is hard. I
voted for Paul during the primary. Now the Republican
Party can burn to the ground as far as I am concerned.
Paul is not going to get serious
about illegal immigration. It is not in his
personal philosophy a and never has been. Defending
the borders and deporting illegal aliens is not about
liberty and freedom, it is about national defense,
cultural integrity, and survival.
Don`t look for Paul to get on our
bandwagon—now or in the future—any more than I will get
If Epstein wants to press somebody to
change his views on illegal aliens, he should start with
John McCain or repeat over and over these words:
"President Barack Obama".
That`s the choice we`re left with this
election year. Given that, I`d rather let the
GOP go to hell t than vote for a traitor like Paul.
I don`t agree with this. In our
interview, Paul clearly staked
out a paleolibertarian position on national sovereignty
which would have satisfied immigration reform patriots.
Unfortunately, paleolibertarianism has
institutional problems and
Paul`s advisors seem to have been dogmatic
left-libertarians. So Paul blew it.

An Oregon Reader Says ICE Is Arresting The Wrong People
raid at Howard Industries in Mississippi, one reason
we need to require secure biometric ID, including
Security cards, is that it will take the plausible
deniability for employers out of the equation.
As it is now, the way to get a job
if you are an illegal alien is to get fake documentation
and use it to fraudulently in the application process.
Employers who hire illegal aliens
can get off the hook unless it can be shown that they
knew of the fraud or helped aliens obtain their false
The illegals are generally desperate
for work and will take whatever risks there are
especially since they know that if they get caught they
will be no worse off than they were before.
A much better system would be to offer
safe harbor to employers from possible prosecution
should they inadvertently have an illegal alien on their
payroll— assuming they accepted secure verifiable
biometric IDs from employees and process those employees
This would allow the honest employers
to not have to keep looking over their shoulders and it
could be used as evidence against the
crooked ones who do not follow that procedure but
instead try to undercut their competitors by hiring

While I agree with
letter writer Terry Baker that the CEOs of companies
that employ illegal aliens need to be handcuffed and
carted off to jail, I disagree with him that that alone
will be effective.
The whole point of arresting illegal
aliens at the job site is to
them, not merely making it possible for them scuttle
to another factory where they can return to work.
There are millions of working aliens
everywhere. We would have to have nearly five
every day just to get rid of one million of them.
How can we accomplish this task
without drawing attention to the crime of aliens in the
workplace without arresting them? We need to hold our
ground and not give an inch if the immigration reform
movement is to mean anything.

A Harvard Graduate Explains Obama`s Qualifications For
Harvard Law: “Liberal Bona Fides”
From: Pete Redner:
And what were
"qualifications" for admission to the Harvard
Business School? The man was rejected by the U of
Texas Law School. May we not conclude that Texas U is
more selective than Harvard? I`d worry less about this
diversionary nonsense and more about what these
candidates stand for today. I`ll assume that you`re
familiar with the provisions of McCain-Kennedy, like the
Dream Act and a new category of
visas for foreigners. A more bipartisan shafting of
the American people would be hard to imagine.
If McCain-Palin have changed their
views, how about letting us know?

Great blog. I also bet [Wayne
Allyn] Root is right. And I am sure there are people
beside Obama who know the answer, for example professors
and fellow university students who took some of the same
classes. Also, his high school record should provide
some insight into his IQ, which, of course, is a major
determining factor. All we need is from someone to track
down and interview these people.
As someone who grew up on a poor
