Amy Goodman and Denis Moynihan:
President Barack Obama delivered his final State of the Union address Tuesday night before an almost-full joint session of Congress. Almost full because of the empty seat next to first lady Michelle Obama. The White House stated, “We leave one seat empty in the First Lady’s State...

Byron York: Rubio, Cruz and immigration
Republican presidential rivals Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz have been in a fight over immigration recently. At the center of that conflict is the Gang of Eight comprehensive immigration reform bill, which divided the Senate — and the Republican party — over one of the current campaign’s...

Byron York: A better GOP immigration debate
Yes, Donald Trump deserves credit for putting immigration in the middle of the Republican presidential debate. But at the same time, Trump has focused much of the conversation either on side issues, like birthright citizenship, or on impossibilities, like the mass deportation of millions...

Susan Stamper Brown: Immigration and the Bible
People are tempted to blur moral lines when it comes to feel-good things like immigration. Last year, President Obama wanted us to support his views so desperately he pulled the Christianity card out of his back pocket, attempting to tie a moral equivalent to his immigration policies...

Joe Guzzardi: Obama’s overreach
Comprehensive immigration reform’s first death knell sounded in 2012 when President Obama unilaterally removed some young adult aliens from deportation, rewarded them with Employment Authorization Documents (EADs), and issued them Social Security numbers. Called deferred action...

Byron York: Public opinion left out of picture in Obama immigration drive
Gallup recently asked adults around the country a very simple question about immigration: Are you satisfied, or dissatisfied, with the level of immigration into the United States today? Are too many immigrants coming? Too few? Or is the number just about right? Before giving the...

Tina Dupuy: Stop pretending
Illegal immigrants are the perfect Republican foe. They’re easily exploited as low-cost workers benefiting business and easily maligned for being “lawless” benefiting politicians. They’re a foreign other with a tendency not to speak English so suspicion is ready-made. Plus,...

Media boycott of Obama's speech irresponsible
ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox's boycott of President Obama's speech about immigration is irresponsible. These media empires have vast reach and influence. It is the media's responsibility to communicate such speeches to the people of the United States so that the people can be more informed...

Jason Stanford: Rick Perry loves the troops, hates feeding them
Texas has a new refugee crisis on the border, and this time it’s not a bunch of kids. When Rick Perry deployed the National Guard to the border, he remembered to go on Fox News, pose with assault weapons, and brag to Republicans in Iowa. But he forgot to make sure that our National...

Ron Paul: What’s missing in the current immigration ‘crisis’ debate
Over the past several weeks we have seen a significant increase in illegal immigration, as thousands of unaccompanied minors pour across what seems an invisible southern border into the United States. The mass immigration has, as to be expected, put an enormous strain on local resources,...

Jan Ting: Does immigration contribute to stagnant wages?
As always, when the Bureau of Labor Statistics jobs report for April was released on Friday, the White House and hopeful pundits reported it with optimism. Jobs increased by 288,000. The unemployment rate fell from 6.7percent in March to 6.3 percent. So does that mean the recession...
