Border patrol waste of taxes

I am not a believer in immigration laws or national borders. I know that’s a seriously radical admission, especially in these border states. Even more, I resent the Border Patrol vehicles I sometimes see around the area. They are not “keeping me safe,” but are instead wasting tax money and bolstering the emerging U.S. police […]

Gingrich right on immigration viewpoints

Freedom New Mexico Genuine, Reagan-era conservatives will thank Newt Gingrich for his reasonable statement about immigration. In a Republican debate last week, Gingrich said: “I don’t see how the party that says it’s the party of the family is going to adopt an immigration policy which destroys families that have been here a quarter century.

Flow of illegal immigration slowing down

Freedom New Mexico Public opinion polls continue to show that strong majorities of Americans want their elected officials to crack down on illegal immigration.

Send criminals away, and not school girls

Freedom New Mexico Oh, the outrage. President Barack Obama wants to deport criminals, before ousting school girls with immigration problems. The audacity of this man. The Journal laid out last week the extraordinary similarities of Obama and former President George W. Bush, which speak poorly of each on most counts. These big-spending interventionists are the […]

Status check not immigration issue

Liberals have come up with a new joke: “How do you say ‘Jan Brewer’ in Spanish?” Answer: “Susana Martinez.” Frankly, I don’t see the resemblance. Brewer, the Republican governor of Arizona, is someone despised by Latinos for polluting the immigration debate with untruths and signing an immigration law that all but mandates racial profiling because […]

Immigration enforcement not police’s job

With the 82nd Texas Legislature just a couple of weeks away, pre-filed anti-immigration bills already are piling up. Let’s hope that reason wins out and bad legislation is shuttled to the dustbin where it belongs. One such bill, filed last month by Sen. Dan Patrick, R-Houston, would require law enforcement officers to investigate the immigration […]

Letter to the editor: Border would benefit from wall

Border would benefit from wall For some time now I have been trying to light a fire under the national media and one senator by writing them letters pertaining to our immigration problem … and it is a big problem. My plan to correct the situation is not my own, but has been proven to […]
