Illegal Aliens on Townhall

John Hawkins - Tue Sep 20

Illegal immigration has become a heads-we-win / tails-you-lose proposition in this country. If the supporters of amnesty and open borders could get that codified into law, they would. ... more

Victor Davis Hanson - Thu Sep 15

Suddenly, liberal op-ed writers are trashing -- even lampooning -- Barack Obama as a one-term president ("one and done"). Centrist Democrats up for re-election in 2012 openly worry about inviting a kindred president into their districts, lest the supposed new pariah lose them votes. ... more

Ira Mehlman - Wed Sep 14

Last week, President Obama laid out for Congress and the American public his plan to address the nation’s unemployment crisis. The proposal calls for $447 billion in government stimulus spending, which the president estimates will result in 1.3 million new U.S. jobs by the end of 2012. ... more

Virgil Goode - Wed Sep 7

While most Americans celebrated Labor Day as a nice occasion to enjoy the end of summer with friends and family, Union bosses and Democratic politicians used the occasion to attack Republicans and Tea Party conservatives. ... more

Lincoln Brown - Wed Sep 7

If they ever sat down and honestly talked with a Tea Party member, they still would not grasp the message of the Tea Party. If they ever met on honest terms, the people on the street who advocate the responsible use of fossil fuels they still could not amend their position one iota. ... more

Last week, the Obama administration announced it will halt deportations of illegal immigrants on a case-by-case basis depending on whether they held certain criteria. Such criteria included attending school, having a family and having primary care responsibility for a family member. ... more

Susan Brown - Tue Aug 23

This morning, I double-checked to be sure the word “illegal” was still a word in the dictionary. As of this morning, it still means “criminal, felonious, illegitimate, illicit, lawless, unlawful, and wrongful.” However, it is quite obvious, that the longer Progressive Democrats have carte’ blanche to do what they want, the closer the word “illegal” gets to becoming extinct. ... more

John Ransom - Sat Aug 20

As Obama tries to shore up his base of support amid blistering criticism from progressive groups, look for Obama to continue to use backdoor regulatory means to enforce, ignore or otherwise interpret laws to benefit special interests that support the president’s agenda. ... more

Dale Peterson - Mon Aug 15

After Alabama passed HB 56 in June, law professor and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, who helped write SB 1070, said, “Alabama now has the strongest law deterring illegal immigration in the country, surpassing even Arizona.” Given the hissy fit Obama threw over Arizona, we knew it was just a matter of time for him before he filed another frivolous lawsuit to overturn the law. ... more

Virgil Goode - Tue Aug 9

Tucked in between dramatic stock market drops on Thursday and Monday, there was a little bit of seemingly good economic news on Friday morning. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the private sector added 117,000 jobs in the month of July. ... more

John Hawkins - Tue Aug 2

So next time someone starts talking about "fairness," put your hand over your wallet, put on your thinking cap, and consider that what liberals define as "fairness" could look extremely "unfair" if you're open minded enough to take a look at it from another perspective. ... more

Virgil Goode - Tue Aug 2

One of the most tired clichés of the immigration debate is that “immigrants do the jobs Americans won’t do.” With 16 million Americans out of work, this justification for not enforcing our immigration laws rings hollower than ever. ... more

Tom Tancredo - Fri Jul 29

While virtually all President Obama will talk about is the debt ceiling, he took a short break to give an address before the National Council of La Raza on Monday. ... more

Virgil Goode - Thu Jul 21

On Wednesday, the House Judiciary Committee voted 19-11 to pass Rep. Bob Goodlatte’s (R-VA) SAFE Act to abolish the Diversity Visa Lottery. The bill will now go before the full House. ... more

Victor Davis Hanson - Thu Jul 7

Recently, in symbolic fashion, spectators of Mexican ancestry in Pasadena's Rose Bowl did not merely cheer on the Mexican national soccer team in a game against the U.S. national team -- such nostalgia is natural and understandable for recent immigrants -- but went much further and also jeered American players and, indeed, references to the United States. ... more

Ira Mehlman - Fri Jul 1

It’s back. Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) is once again pushing the DREAM Act amnesty. Before a packed room (mostly of illegal aliens), the Senate Judiciary Committee held a hearing earlier this week stacked with witnesses who favor granting amnesty to millions of illegal aliens. ... more

John Hawkins - Tue Jun 28

The American story has never been about things coming easy. It has been about rising to the moment when the moment is hard. About rejecting panicked division for purposeful unity. About seeing a mountaintop from the deepest valley. That is why we remember that some of the most famous words ever spoken by an American came from a president who took office in a time of turmoil: “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” ... more

John Hawkins - Wed Jun 22

There's way too much fussin' and fightin' in politics, isn't there? In Rodney King's immortal words, "I just want to say, you know, can we all get along?" ... more

Bob Dane - Wed Jun 15

What was that they didn't say at the debate? In both the manner of questioning and responding, the immigration issue was not fully presented, and perhaps that’s why the nation is struggling to find meaningful solutions. ... more

Robert Knight - Tue Jun 14

Even with the demise of ACORN, a lot of people are worried about voter fraud in the upcoming 2012 presidential election. ... more

John Ransom - Fri Jun 10

The violations of law and trust that are a result of the non-enforcement of immigration laws, especially as it relates to criminal illegal aliens, pales in comparison to the violations of King George III in Parliament. Across the country, states governments are shouldering the growing financial burden of keeping criminal illegal aliens in jail in the face of hostility from the executive branch of the federal government. ... more
