Today's Immigration Post

Courtesy of National Review.

Tales from people on the front lines of the border wars.

A look at American Dhimmitude. An excerpt:

What we’re seeing in the streets is a naked assertion of power by outsiders against the American nation. They demand that we comply with their wishes and submit our immigration policies for their approval, and implicitly threaten violence if their demands are not met. Far from being a discussion among Americans about the best way to regulate immigration, the illegal-alien marches have been marked by the will to power: ubiquitous Mexican flags, burning and other forms of contempt for the American flag, and widespread displays of blatant racial chauvinism and irredentism.


And finally, asking the question of economics in granting amnesty. An excerpt:

Given that Democratic Leader Harry Reid has threatened to filibuster any immigration bill that does not include amnesty for illegal aliens, someone should ask him a basic question: What happens to state budgets when twelve million illegal aliens become eligible for Medicaid and food stamps?


A good question.

Hey! Its chris from liberalyouth.com. Just wanted to let you know I am now bloging at The National Report. Maybe you should take a look at the army's new policy to not allow families to send their kids adequate armor.
