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...

Amy Goodman / Border children: ‘They don’t speak English, but they understand hate’
Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Jose Antonio Vargas put a prominent, public face on the immigration crisis this week when he was detained by the U.S. Border Patrol in McAllen, Texas. After a number of hours and a national outcry, he was released. He first revealed his status as...

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,...

Michael Reagan: Stinking border politics
Here’s a modest proposal for solving the “Children’s Invasion” on our southwestern borders. Next time a planeload of “unaccompanied alien children” from Honduras or Guatemala is being dispersed to their relatives in the U.S., the pilot should divert the flight and land...

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...

Joe Guzzardi: Slippery road ahead as Congress reconvenes
With congress reconvening this week, all eyes will be warily cast on President Obama. He recently ordered the Department of Homeland Security to review deportation policies so they might be handled “more humanely.” For millions of Americans who support enforcement first, and who...

Joe Guzzard: Poll says Americans reject amnesty
Despite six months of pushing for a blanket amnesty that began in June when the Senate bill passed its uncontrolled immigration bill, advocates can’t sell it to the public. Even after a nonstop effort headed by the immigration lobby that included demonstrations, sit-ins, marches,...

Bryon York: What is the real number of illegal border crossings?

Byron York: Immigration fight stirs debate over federal benefits
Did you know that U.S. law forbids the admission of any immigrant who is likely to depend on public assistance? It’s right there in Section 212(a)(4) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, first passed in the 1950s and still the law today: “Any alien who, in the opinion of the...
