The president is charged in Art II Sec 3 of our Constitution with “taking Care that the Laws be faithfully executed…” We know that for multiple decades now our immigration laws have not been faithfully executed by any sitting president nor by his administration. We also know from the history of immigration to our land that our Constitution absolutely permits us to restrict or to even cut off immigration from any country in the world.Read more ›

“[T]here is a provision in the McCarran bill, an unprecedented provision, section 212 (e), which would give the President of the United States the authority to bar any and all aliens, or any class of aliens, at any time the President felt such a move was required in the public interest. This is plain authority for the President to shut off all immigration, at any time, or to reduce it at any time, or to shut off immigration from any country, at any time, in time of peace as in time of war.” That was Sen. Herbert Lehman (D-N.Y.) speaking on the floor of the Senate on May 13, 1952 in opposition to the provision of the Immigration Act of 1952 — now 8 U.S.C. 1182(f) — that has been invoked by President Donald Trump to temporarily suspend immigration from seven countries deemed to be terrorist hotspots.

By Grant Carson Last week, a terrorist couple slaughtered fourteen people and injured twenty-one others in San Bernardino, California. Shooter Tashfeen Malik, a Pakistani citizen and the wife of the other shooter Syed Farook, entered the United States with a K-1 visa which had an inaccurate address. Evidence shows that they both committed to “jihad” and “martyrdom” at least two years ago.

In observation of these facts, the vetting and admission process for immigrants is obviously broken. The Preamble to the Constitution states that “this Constitution” was established to “provide for the common defence [sic].” This “common” defense is for the citizens. With the current hostile political climate of the world, and with ISIS declaring war on the U.S. in 2012, and with terrorists invading countries posing as refugees, is admitting […]Read more ›
ABC News has launched an investigation into the EB-5 “cash for visas” program that was the brainchild of Democrat Senator Ted Kennedy. The program also came up several times during the 2014 election as U.S. Senate candidate Mike Rounds dealt with uncomfortable questions about his involvement in the program which, in South Dakota, spawned a bankrupt beef plant, a former state official dead under odd circumstances, and $120 million of the taxpayer’s money missing.Read more ›
David North at the Center for Immigration Studies has a new insightful article on how the “cash for visas” EB-5 program was handled in South Dakota. It seems someone in South Dakota was making a cash haul, especially compared to what goes on in other states.Read more ›
One of the few constitutionally enumerated responsibilities of the federal government is to secure the nation’s borders and ports of entry, and to provide consistent rules for entering the country, as in the aforementioned clause of Article I, Section 8. The reason for such safeguards is obvious.Read more ›
The immigration issue is now a political football because of the political baggage it carries. Both parties want the votes of the Hispanic population, the most rapidly growing demographic in the country. And this is the same population most sensitive to the immigration issue because most of the illegals within our borders are from Latin American countries.Read more ›
