It’s early days yet in the Trump presidency, but there’s a general feeling it’s not going very well. Except, of course, for the work of our splendid Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Even partisan types are generally willing to cut a new president some slack—the so-called “honeymoon.” Nope: Ten weeks in, Trump is graded F by... Read More
The latest Radio Derb transcript is up here. A sample: Mexico buckles. If you do like open borders, then you must love the Obama administration, which has been waving through illegals as fast as it can while it still can. The Center for Immigration Studies, working from Census Bureau numbers, estimatesthat for the two years... Read More
No One Falling For Deported Honduran Sob Story
Today’s Carlos Slim Times features a two-hanky sob story about illegal immigrants from Honduras Kelvin Villanueva was almost home one night last June when a policeman stopped him for a broken taillight. From his truck, he could see his longtime girlfriend, Suelen Bueno, waiting for him behind the glass door of their apartment. She often... Read More
Open-borders enthusiast and syndicated columnist (and board member of janitorial-services megafirm ABM) Linda Chavez has been reading Donald Trump’s position paper on immigration. Naturally she has things to say about it: so many things, she promises future columns dealing with Trump’s proposals. In her current column she tackles Trump’s call for an end to birthright...

Alas; in this age... Read More

Chesterton wrote a poem titled “The Secret People.” The poem is a very brief (60 lines) history of England from a Chestertonian—romantic, traditionalist—point of view. “The Secret People” is hyperbolic and not very logical, but it contains some memorable phrases. Whether God does indeed nurse “scorn for all... Read More

A specter is haunting Europe—the specter of mass illegal immigration from the benighted regions to Europe’s south. There are parallels with the current situation in the Western hemisphere, but there are important differences too. As dire and disgraceful as our own federal government’s insouciance towards mass illegal immigration has been, Europe’s danger is even greater,... Read More
However inured I think I am to the hypocrisy in American political discourse, media coverage of the immigration issue still takes my breath away. There was a prime example this last weekend in Newsday, the main newspaper out here where I live in Suffolk County on New York's Long Island. Newsday has a left-liberal editorial... Read More
