Joe Biden’s ‘Sanctuary Nation’ Policies Made Laken Riley’s Death Possible

Written by Daniel Horowitz

When George Floyd died under disputed circumstances in 2020, a spontaneous, rapturous global movement emerged to lionize him and use his death to demand changes to our policing and criminal justice system. The movement succeeded, and it resulted in the worst crime wave in a generation.

Laken Riley, a young nursing student in Georgia, was brutally murdered last week, allegedly by an illegal alien from Venezuela. Where are the cries of “justice for Laken”?… Continue Reading

There Is Chaos at the Border and Finger-Pointing in Congress

Written by Debra J. Saunders

How bad is the situation at the Southwest border?

I attended a hearing Thursday of the U.S. House Subcommittee on National Security, the Border and Foreign Affairs on the consequences of the current “catch and release” policies to observe how members of both parties address an issue that troubles American voters.

The situation at the border is so downright scary, Jessica Vaughan of the pro-enforcement Center for Immigration Studies testified, that Mexican cartels now are making more money from human trafficking than drug trafficking.… Continue Reading

Erasing The Southern Border is About More Than Flooding Voter Rolls

Written by Robert Knight

There’s more than meets the eye to the Democrats’ erasure of the nation’s southern border.

Sure, the Biden administration plans to keep allowing millions of aliens to enter the United States illegally, hook them on government aid, and turn them into permanent Democratic voters.

This is so obvious that denying it makes the Democrats and their media look ridiculously dishonest.

But I submit that it’s even more sinister. The aim is not to establish permanent, one-party Democratic power, although that’s crucial.… Continue Reading

Border Crisis: A Conversation With Darren Bailey

Written by David E. Smith

Recently revealed federal data shows that in December we saw 302,000 migrant encounters at the border, shattering the previous record of 269,000 back in September. That is twice the population size of Joliet and three times the population of Peoria — in a single month. Among those who came in were 19 individuals on the Terror Watch List.

While the Biden Administration has ignored this ongoing crisis over the past three years, former State Senator Darren Bailey and 12th District Congressional candidate says that “the border crisis is the number one threat to our nation.”… Continue Reading

A Twilight Zone America Endures The Border Crisis

Written by Robert Knight

Whenever I hear the White House insist the border is secure, inflation is no problem, and that boys are really girls if they feel like it, I look around for Rod Serling.

You half expect to see the vintage TV show host emerge from a misty backdrop to say, “What you’re seeing is a replica of reality, not reality itself. You have been transported to a parallel universe where evil is good, wrong is right and bitter is sweet.… Continue Reading

Suicide by “Migration”

Written by David E. Smith

The Biden Administration’s intentional and flagrant disregard for national security has dramatically fostered and escalated an ongoing crisis at our southern border as record levels of illegal immigrants and deadly drugs pour into our nation. We also cannot overstate the egregious problem of human trafficking that has exploded in scope over the past few years.

Additionally, more than a few political pundits have expressed their grave concerns about the alarming number of military-age men streaming in through the southern U.S.… Continue Reading

Foreign Invaders Ride The Taxpayer Express

Written by Daniel Horowitz

The next time you’re fondled at the airport by a TSA agent, look around. You may very well see foreign nationals ushered through security without proper documentation and disregarding every TSA rule. While Joe Biden pretends that millions of invaders from 150 countries are a natural occurrence, his administration is using taxpayer-funded nongovernmental organizations to disperse tens of thousands of them throughout the country.

This cannot be allowed to continue. Why won’t Republicans pledge to put an end to it by refusing to fund one more penny of this scheme with the budget deadline looming?… Continue Reading

GOP Must Go On The Offensive and Call Out Democrats’ Extremism to Win 2024 Elections

Written by Robert Knight

Most pundits credit the Democrats’ election victories last Tuesday to the nation’s apparently unquenchable lust for abortion.

They have a point.

Democrats kept the focus off potent issues such as crime, raging inflation, millions of illegal immigrants, the war on domestic energy production, and President Biden’s bizarre behavior.

Using abortion like a club, Democrats in Virginia flipped the state House and kept the Senate, albeit by paper-thin majorities. They kept control in Fairfax and Loudoun counties.… Continue Reading

“Untenable” Immigrant Crisis Created by Democrats

Written by David E. Smith

Democrat Governor JB Pritzker recently sent a three-page letter to Democrat President Joe Biden complaining about the so-called “asylum seekers” and “refugees” being bussed to Chicago from Texas. However, the majority of immigrants breaking our federal laws are not refugees seeking asylum. Most are impoverished foreigners who are seeking the American dream and job opportunities.

And with our open border, who could blame them?

The U.S. already has a generous immigration policy to assimilate good people from around the world.… Continue Reading

U.S. Senator Cruz Grills Secretary Mayorkas On His Failure To Protect America

Written by Gabriel Syme

Government officials go before U.S. Senate Committees all the time to testify about various things. When they do so, they are expected to answer the questions posed to them by our elected officials – that is the purpose of such inquiries. But lately, we have increasingly seen Democrats stonewall, obfuscate, and demonstrate an outright inability to answer basic questions about their respective jobs. A prime example of this is when U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) recently questioned the Secretary of Homeland Security, Alejandro Mayorkas, about the disaster that is the United States’ southern border.… Continue Reading
