The “Humanitarian Crisis” and the Coming Crime Wave in U.S. Cities

The news is full of the “humanitarian crisis” taking place on the U.S. southern border. We hear of the “unaccompanied children” who have been tragically released into the nation without parental oversight. It paints a horrifying picture that has affected compassionate, caring Americans, bringing many to tears and wanting to help. That’s what Americans do. We care. We cry. We rush to help.

What many, blinded by their compassion, are not seeing, is the reality of what this modern day version of Castro’s infamous Muriel Boat …

E-verify IS a threat to liberty!

Rebuttal By

Tom DeWeese

I don’t know Peter Gadiel, and he apparently knows absolutely nothing about me. But that hasn’t stopped him from attacking me in a recent article (Influential Conservative is Dangerously Wrong on E-Verify). His article makes some outrageous statements about me, even to presume he can tell you what motives are in my head when I take a position.

Recently, I released an article entitled “E-Verify and the Emerging Surveillance State.” My opposition to E-Verify is that it is a …

E-Verify and the Emerging Surveillance State

The rush is on to force into law mandatory use of the E-Verify system that will mandate that all businesses use this hand-me-down from the Social Security Administration in order to hire anyone. Republican Representative Lamar Smith has introduced HR 2164 and House action is expected at any time. Say proponents, E-Verify is necessary to stop illegals from getting jobs. Many freedom-loving Conservatives are supporting the idea in a desperate attempt to control illegal immigration. Is this the right way to protect America?

To answer that, …

Unfortunately, Arizona does NOT have it right

By Tom DeWeese and Mark Lerner

There is no question that the citizens of Arizona, like the citizens of all of the southern border states, face grave and outrageous dangers from the invasion of illegals rushing across the borders. Private property is being destroyed; crime is skyrocketing; costs for schools and hospitals is forcing bankruptcy on local communities; and violence is becoming a way of life. No American, living in a nation where rights are supposed to be protected and guaranteed, should be forced …

Fire Mary Peters

May 7, 2008

By Tom DeWeese

The Bush Administration has directly defied, not only the will and intent of Congress, but it is now openly ignoring legislation that the President himself signed into law. As a result a Constitutional crisis is rapidly developing over a project to let Mexican trucks on U.S. roads. As a result, many are now calling for the firing of U.S. Transportation Secretary Mary Peters.

In September 2007, the Bush Administration began a pilot project to allow Mexican trucks to drive on U.S. highways. …

Why Illegal Immigration is a Threat to the United States… And How Local Communities are Fighting Back

March 18, 2008

By Tom DeWeese

In June, 2007 a solid eighty percent of the American people let Congress know they wanted the government to put the brakes on illegal immigration; they turned thumbs down on the President’s guest worker amnesty plan; and they wanted tax-paid services to illegals stopped.

Most Americans understand that new laws are not needed to stop illegal immigration. What is necessary is repeal of some laws granting taxpayer-financed services to illegals along with enforcement of existing laws. These two acts would be enough …

“Comprehensive” Sellout Illegal immigration, the Senate and the White House

June 15, 2006

By Tom DeWeese

There are moments in history when destiny is determined. President Bush and the U.S. Senate now face such a moment as they determine the course of U.S. immigration policy. For this is not simply a policy decision to be based on petty political maneuverings of the day. Ultimately they are deciding the future of the United States of America. Greatness divides the statesmen from the political hucksters.

Last December, the U.S. House of Representatives passed an immigration reform bill that …

How to Stop the Flood of Illegal Aliens

March 11, 2005

By Tom DeWeese

The issue that will define our era and determine the nation’s future is illegal immigration. Political debate is full of schemes like “guest worker” programs and temporary worker cards to allow illegals to “fill jobs that Americans just don’t want to do.” Such programs are really just political doublespeak from politicians who lack the intestinal fortitude to protect the borders of the United States.

The truth is President Bush is pushing the guest worker plan because he is trying to appease Mexican …

No Fly Lists, Illegal Aliens and the Ravages of Political Correctness

October 18, 2004

By Tom DeWeese

Americans should not feel too secure with the U.S. government’s anti-terror policies because the targeted ones aren’t necessarily the terrorists. The government’s policies are based on the idea that it’s easier to put a net over an entire nation of law-abiding citizens than to take appropriate actions to catch the bad guys.

Maryland Special Education teacher Kathryn Harrington was flying home from vacation a few weeks ago when Tampa, Florida, airport security confiscated her …

The Outrages of the Mexican Invasion

By Tom DeWeese

Illegal immigration is about much more than fighting terrorism. The fact is, illegal Mexican’s are pouring across our borders and as a result, American tax-paid services like education and healthcare are being pushed to the brink of collapse.

It is an incomprehensible arrogance exercised by both Mexican and American officials who, while promoting illegal immigration, see no problem in letting U.S. taxpayers foot the bill. Each new report of activities along the Mexican border appears …
