    From the New York Times: In short, they got a lot of early experience in the Mexican film & TV industry. But then they hit career ceilings south of the border due to the poor fit between the Three Amigos' Oscarish artsiness versus the backward tastes of Mexican audiences. So they quickly transitioned to successful...

  • Since Senor Reed is cost conscious, there is a less expensive way and it precludes other costs such as detention, incarceration, health care and such. You build simple towers such as the forest rangers have, spaced across the border, staff it with Marines and shoot every living thing trying to enter. Towers are cheap, Marines need range practice as we’re going back to Korea and bullets are sure things for few pesos. Just kill the fuckers, Fred.

    Problem solved. And cost effective too. What’s not to like?

    On the other hand, Coleridge's opium addiction did not exactly do much for him in terms of poetic production......
    , @Bill B.

    Kubla Kahn was supposedly written as a result of an opium dream.
     
    Er yes ... but he forgot half the poem after someone interrupted him!


    (Hunter S. Thompson once quoted the opening to the poem to show how lame Nixon's mind was (or something):

    In Xanadu did Kubla Khan
    A stately pleasure-dome decree:
    Where Alph, the sacred river, ran
    Through caverns measureless to man
    Down to a sunless sea.

    Unfortunately for me it backfired by making Hunter's own prose look tired and complacent, which it was at that stage.)

    Coleridge was a downer-addled junkie burnout. If he were born two centuries later we'd be watching him on TMZ blowing chunks on his shoes on his way in and out of rehab.

  • From the New York Times: The NYT leaves out that Trump said that preliminary investigation found that the terrorist was listed as the contact person for 23 family member immigrants. Mr. Trump’s comments came hours
  • @wrd9
    So this 3rd world turd was able to sponsor 23 relatives? For some countries, like the Philippines, it can take over 20 years for a sibling to immigrate because of the demand. Seems like Muslim scum from obscure countries can waltz in.

    The Philippines and many other countries are not permitted to be part of the lottery program and, while on the Philippines, if you’re a single Philippine womn, it is almost impossible to obtain a B1 or B2 visa but, nowadays, the Chinese get them with ease wheras a few years ago, it was very difficult.

    There’s little logic in immigration and in its departmental regs.

    By law, if you are born of an American citizen parent but not in the USA, you are still a citizen a la Ted Cruz being born in Canada to an American Mother. His Dad was not yet a citizen. The paperwork to obtain that citizenship is incredible and the filing fee is a litlle over $1,000! Imagine poor Filipinos or others finding a grand for filing fees?

  • I knew Mac Fleming. We were members of the same tennis club and both avid players though I was much younger than he. [Almost everybody was.] I’m also an attorney with one distinction: I was 65 when first admitted to the bar after a career in tech; Mac gave me Holme’s book on the law as a gift when I was admitted. Mac was a quiet, gentle and thoughtful man, respected by all. He also wrote and thought well. It is a pleasure to read opinions he authored. I never heard him opine on politics or culture in any but a diffident way and, even then, infrequently. Maybe he just didn’t want to get involved at his club. But he was surely right on with his letter.

  • @Jonathan Mason
    Baseball and NFL football probably need to evolve a bit for changing times.

    Cricket is renowned for having games called Test Matches that last up to 5 days. Actually they used to last until there was a winner, until a lengthy match in the 1930s was unfinished due to the England team having to catch their ship home from Australia with the match still in progress. After that the 5-day limit was introduced. Evolution, you see.

    Now no one has time for 5-day games unless they are retired, and one of the most popular forms of the professional game today is the so called 20-20 in which each team gets just 120 pitches and the game is over in about 3 hours.

    20-20 is a veritable slugfest with 6 hits (equivalent to home runs) all over the place, and while some players are specialists in 20-20, some players are good enough to star in both 20-20 and the 5-day game. Chris Gayle is a mighty slugger who excels in all forms of the game, except that he has become so old and fat that he can hardly run any more and relies on mighty blows even in the 5-day game.

    In one game he scored 175 runs off 66 balls, a world record, including no less than17 6-hits or home runs.

    His image was slightly tarnished when he gave some candid answers in live interviews with female journalists. Here is a summary of his views:

    Gayle said Jamaicans were "more relaxed about sex. We're not so hung up about it. This is what people like doing. It's no big deal."

    The interview took place in Bangalore, where Gayle has been playing with the Royal Challengers in the Indian Premier League.

    "I haven't had a shag since I been here," he said. "Ten t'ousand women will throw themselves at me. The fact is that I am damn good-looking."

    Asked if he threw himself at women, he sighed: "Your questions, you suck me dry."

    Gayle, one of the biggest stars in world cricket, boasted about his "very, very big bat" and asked The Times journalist Charlotte Edwardes if she had ever had a threesome.

    Although it may not appeal to baseball purists, a form of the game with MORE home runs and more larger than life characters would probably bring in the advertising dollars without which no professional sport can survive these days.

    If you did want to reduce the number of home runs, the answer is obviously to extend the boundaries of the field so that a longer carry is needed, or to reduce the maximum length of the bat and thus reduce the velocity of the sweet spot.

    A much easier fix would be to shorten the distance between the mound and the plate. That would change a lot as hitters would have to choke up to make contact and the homer would disappear.

  • Most people do not concern themselves with the players’ right to speech. It is the speech with which they are concerned. Speech is a form of expression of beliefs and, as such, it has consequences either of support or non-support of said beliefs. Here, the non-support consequences are withdrawal of approval of the players and the NFL.

    My position is that you have your right of free speech and I have my right to never support you again for what you said. Who can argue with that?

  • Re the birthright citizenship argument, that is not settled law in that SCOTUS has never ruled on the question of whether a child born in the US is thereby a citizen if the parents are illegally present. Way back in 1897, SCOTUS did resolve the issue of whether a child born to alien parents who were legally present was thereby a citizen. That case is U.S. vs Wong Kim Ark 169 US 649. SCOTUS ruled in favor of citizenship. If that was a justiciable issue how much more so is it when the parents are illegally present?

    My thinking is that the result would be the same but, at least, the question would be settled. I cannot see justices returning a toddler to Beijing or worse. They would never have invitations to cocktail parties again for the shame heaped upon them for such uncaring conduct. Today, the title of citizen is conferred simply by bureaucratic rule, not by judicial order.

    All developed countries from Japan to Europe to Australia & NZ have a law that says at least one parent must be citizen for a baby born on their soil to be citizen, the US would simply fall in line with all other countries. The baby will get the same status as the highest status parent. If one parent has a green card the child gets a green card. If the parent is on a visa like H1b, F1, Eb5 or tourist visa, the child gets dependent visa status. The Supreme Court judges are supposed to look out for American's interest first and foremost, not foreign nationals'. They are SCOTUS of the USA, not SCOTUS of the world.

  • First, I believe Trump has kicked this over to Congress as his ruse for not having to deport Dreamers. He’s always been hesitant about them. That Obama did an XO was perfect for Trump who made good use of that illegal act and now never has any responsibility for them because if Congress fails to act they then become Congress’s fault, not Trump’s.

    I think that deportation will become simpler, more efficient and faster as the DoJ and the Immigration Courts get used to it. Too, more immigration judges will help and that’s in the works – lots more IJs are planned. What’s needed is years of pressure so the illegal lobby is broken or, at least, bent.

Nobody really wants to go there unless they have pensions or such and can live cheaper than at home. And, generally, they live in expat, tribal communities just as Fred does.

    Fred’s piece rests entirely on a false premise—the journalists of today have little life or practical experiences because they are snooty, privileged, and self-absorbed, thus the reason why they despise the Heartland. Fred of all people ought to know that his field runs the gamut, from big-city writer to small town reporter. From the tens of thousands who are employed in this occupation, a great deal of them have engaged in the activities he described. Fred’s confirmation bias that most of today’s reporters are other than studious intellectuals is on full display, given his own arrogance of being smarter than the average bear.

    Consider that his own ideological attachment to that magical period in our history—the 1950’s—wreaks of solipsism. The fact is that particular decade had its own share of political, economic, and social problems which were hiding in plain view, yet to be vetted and disseminated. Men were men and women were women…on television and film, not in real life. Nostalgia is a mother.

Worked in a cemetery digging, planting and hauling garbage – great job at $55 per week in 1944/45 as few young men around but I was too young then. Waited till 17 then joined the Marines. College after that on the Korean GI Bill; worked mostly driving trucks and school busses, did a couple of years in local Sunoco station at night and worked in a one-man coffee shop 11pm to 5 am where I did it all from the grill to the head. Hired by IBM as a senior and started work a week or so before graduation. I’m still working at 86, 7 days a week promoting and CEO of a new 501(c)(3) foundation for kids.

    I agree with Fred that few journos come close to that kind of history as to rubbing shoulders with the hoi polloi. To me, it was normal; nothing unusual. My contemporaries did much the same.

    We were a better country then. The downgrade began in the mid-60s and has continued with the crumbling of personal ethics and the socialistic takeover of the media, academia and the Democrat party. It was a slow roll but it never stopped, never ratcheting back as the Iron Lady said. Even the Pope and his cardinals are Commies.

    Why does it continue?

    Not enough Trumps, too many foreigners and our black population failed to take advantage of civil rights and educational opportunities, preferring to remain largely Negro.

    Fred’s piece rests entirely on a false premise—the journalists of today have little life or practical experiences because they are snooty, privileged, and self-absorbed, thus the reason why they despise the Heartland. Fred of all people ought to know that his field runs the gamut, from big-city writer to small town reporter. From the tens of thousands who are employed in this occupation, a great deal of them have engaged in the activities he described. Fred’s confirmation bias that most of today’s reporters are other than studious intellectuals is on full display, given his own arrogance of being smarter than the average bear.

    Consider that his own ideological attachment to that magical period in our history—the 1950’s—wreaks of solipsism. The fact is that particular decade had its own share of political, economic, and social problems which were hiding in plain view, yet to be vetted and disseminated. Men were men and women were women…on television and film, not in real life. Nostalgia is a mother.

    Socialists? Really? Friend, if you think this country is run by socialists you have no idea what is going on. This country is run by money and the entities that have it -- primarily corporations, investment banks, and the people who run them. The guiding principle of this country's economic system since about 1980 is neoliberalism, which essentially means extraction of wealth from the common people to corporations. Very little wealth is going the opposite direction. Your energies are being successfully misdirected.

    I don’t think I could ever belong to any branch other than the USMC – you absorb the Corps and it becomes an integral part of you. Whenever I meet another Marine, I already know a lot about him.

I also recall going down the rope ladder into an LVCP with a 40+ pound radio on my back, a pack on my chest, an M-1 slung around the radio and the extra battery in the pack. I was around 155 lbs in those days.

    And, on the M-1, when issued my new weapon, it was all cosmolined with a tag on it reading: CONDEMNED – U.S. Army – 1945 Gave me a secure feeling I’d be able to knock off all those NORKS easy with my well-broken in weapon.

  • Citizens may be deported Fred if they are under 18 and deported “home” with parent(s). They may return at 18 and, at 21, petition for their parent(s) to come here.

    The other legal issue is whether anchor babies are citizens. I know the State Dept. terms them as such but the courts have not weighed in on that point. If parents are legal residents, their child is a citizen. That was decided long ago but the anchor baby issue has not. I think it would likely be decided affirmatively but that’s not the point.

    Then too, it is quite possible to deport millions if you make employment dependent on legality and if you prosecute those who stole identities for work or otherwise committed fraud. And, of course, illegal entry is a crime per se and a deportable offense.

    It is irrelevant why a country may decide in such fashion. Maybe not to you but the country decides, not Fred, the guy who abandoned the country for cheap living and whatever else. He has no skin in that game anymore having given it away for personal gain and/or pleasure.

    “[W]hether a child born in the United States, of parents of Chinese descent, who, at the time of his birth, are subjects of the Emperor of China, but have a permanent domicile and residence in the United States, and are there carrying on business, and are not employed in any diplomatic or official capacity under the Emperor of China, becomes at the time of his birth a citizen of the United States by virtue of the first clause of the Fourteenth Amendment of the Constitution.”

    President Trump can not only appoint sound SCOTUS justices, he can also

    - rescind all of Obama's Open Border$/illegal alien-coddling executive orders, and then issue fresh executive orders to counteract the ill-effects of Obama's executive orders

    - direct the Attorney General to deemphasize "Racism" witch hunts against police forces and individuals, and to instead focus intensively on enforcing immigration law: this alone will have a profound positive effect by compelling illegals to go voluntarily back to their own countries, by discouraging & disincentivizing future illegal border crossing, and by putting the fear of prosecution into U.S. employers of illegal alien parasites

    - direct the Attorney General to identify and deport visa over-stayers, of whom last year alone there were half a million, and, further, insist upon establishment of a biometric visa ID system to track visa holders U.S. residence/school registration/employment, and to enforce visa stipulations on length of foreigners' stays

    - direct the Attorney General to make a big show of prosecuting prominent illegal aliens (such as that Vargas guy whom Obama actually had the gall to invite to and praise at one of his SOTU addresses); this would send the message to prominent illegals to get out of the "activism" for Open Border$ rackets, thus taking the wind out of the sails of such "activism"/movements, and thus also giving no prominent illegal alien martyrs for U.S. citizens keen for Open Border$ to use as propaganda icons

    - as C-in-C, direct the armed forces to shut down bases and operations in foreign countries where those bases and operations do absolutely no good for ordinary Americans

    - insist upon nationwide E-Verify for all employment

    - by executive order cut off funding to "sanctuary cities" to force such U.S. municipalities to cooperate comprehensively with DHS/ICE/&c.

    - refuse visas to nationals of countries which refuse to accept their citizens convicted here of crime

    - end the "Refugee" Resettlement Rackets (all of which are almost 100% scammed by foreigners) by executive order, thus depriving the traitorous VOLAGs that run those rackets of the lion's share of their federal funding, and forcing those VOLAGs to appeal to Americans for donations to alone fund their racketeering (and a great many Americans, especially those of us harmed individually by cheap foreign labor and those of us who see our communities despoiled by non-assimilating "refugees," will not donate to such VOLAGs)

    - put brakes on "family reunification" to discourage legal & illegal immigration

    - repudiate UN power to dictate which and how many phony "refugees" the U.S. must admit

    - deny Social Security benefits & other entitlements (e.g., Medicaid) to illegal aliens & their offspring

    - insist upon a constitutional amendment to end anchor baby birthright citizenship (thus putting the birth tourism rackets out of business

    - apply stringent restrictions to issuance of green cards; institute revocation of green cards for foreigners convicted of crime; prohibit family reunification for green card holders (thus driving down demand for green cards)

    - withdraw troops from foreign countries and deploy them "to provide for the common defense" along the southern border (there is nothing "Guatemala" about this, Mr. Reed, as it is an explicit purpose of the Constitution stipulated distinctly in the Preamble)

    - insist upon a constitutional amendment establishing English-only as the official language of the United States, for all Government business and documents; and even before such an amendment, refuse Government-provided interpreters to foreigners on our soil - compel foreigners to provide their own interpreters, relieving U.S. citizens of the burden of paying for interpreters

    I'm sure there are other steps President Trump can and should take to restore our country and its governance and prosperity to us ordinary Americans.

    What has never been judicially decided is the citizenship of a child born in the United State of parents who are not legal residents, i.e., illegal aliens. Nor has Congress passed any law to that effect.

    The State Department calls them citizens but without any statutory or precedential basis for that statement.

    Could you be more explicit as to the bedding of coeds?

    I'm glad you asked me that question, since it ties into our deleted discussion of gaslighting yesterday.

    "Gaslighting" connotes an attempt to drive someone insane by manipulating the physical environment, as in the film Gaslight in 1944, however I have seen it in many other contexts as well, for example, several Perry Mason episodes.

    However, in the abstract, "Gaslighting" represents an attempt by one party (e.g., a man) to dictate the nature of reality to another (e.g., a woman). Thus, in this scenario, the man has the football and gets to tell the woman what reality is. So, for example, if a woman refuses to sleep with a man, then he gets to tell her that she has a problem, and of course she wants to understand what her problem is, and finally he concedes to sleeping with her in order to show her what her problem is, and so on. It seems to me that this remains a popular gambit among certain types. Thus manipulation, "guilt trips", and "head games" all fall under the general rubric.

    However, "gaslighting", because of the abstraction, is now applied to almost any male female interaction, thus, a man explaining anything to a woman is "mansplaining" or even "gaslighting", while any attempt or success, by a man, at making a woman feel guilty, inadequate, at fault, to blame, etc. is construed as "gaslighting", as well as virtually any criticism. Also "gaslighting" has been expanded to encompass any and all forms of deceit (thus, any reality-based response to the query "Do I look fat in this?" is intrinsically "gaslighting") and, in the opinion of some, any disagreement with a woman can also be included.

    Thus the term is becoming so expansive as to be meaningless.

    The other (the Mormon Church-owned Deseret News) is ridiculously overcensored in a way that stifles any sort of organic conversation and blocks almost 100% of facts the Mormon Church would prefer for you not to hear. The Deseret News has a full staff of unpaid interns at its disposal - hell, many of its articles are literally written by college sophomores - yet Steve Sailor alone is faster at reading and approving comments. A few years ago a couple of Mormon missionaries were killed when they were run over by a drunk Hispanic man in Texas. They censored any and all comments that pointed out that the perp was an illegal alien.

    Newspapers are increasingly concerned about telling you what to think, and comments sections get in the way of that.

    As laid out in the speech Trump's deportation plan seems pretty feasible:

    1. Build a wall and institute a biometric entry/exit tracking system to stop the flow of illegals.

    2. Aggressively locate and deport known criminal illegals through a beefed up ICE (the deportation force!).

    3. Cut off jobs and welfare for those who remain.

    4. No amnesty. The only way any who are still here could have hope of ever getting citizenship is to go back to their home countries and apply for legal entry like anybody else.

    5. No catch and release. As any of the remaining illegals come into contact with law enforcement or immigration officials, they will be detained until deported.

    Sounds completely reasonable. The big thing he didn't mention last night was ending birthright citizenship. I wonder why?

    Because that’s a legal question over which he has no current control and will whip up non-productive, useless arguing he doesn’t need now.

    I even have my doubts about that since the leftist have generally conditioned afro americans to be takers and not givers. The radicalized afro american, while receiving never ending entitlements, have an attitude of 'its never enough'. If that is happening in an age of relative abundance, what do you believe will happen in a situation of extreme scarcity (following a nuclear war)? I do not believe that they will rise to the occasion any more than they did in the Superdome, during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans.

    This is a social mess, created and antagonized by leftist elites, and it will get a lot worse before it gets better. Combine this with our economic mess, that resembles a glorified ponzi scheme, it will result in troubled times ahead for all of us. Unless we can change radical afro americans hostile attitudes (and I do not see this happening), there is no reversing this trend. Whites have defeated the strong Amerindian who were a lot tougher than the radical afro american complainers, so ultimately it will end very bad for them. It is not something the rest of us want, but it is something that is being thrust upon all of us. Not liking that fact is not going to change it.

    I do find it distasteful the implication in the campaign coverage that Trump's supporters are somehow deficient, or are losers because they are poor with minimal education. Yet blacks, who on average are probably poorer and no better educated, are lionized for their support of the democrats. Hillary will never have to apologize for being supported by a core who live in poverty and have high drop-out rates.

    Democrat voters will vote for more gibmedats, and they are applauded for voting their economic interests. Trump voters will not vote for gibmedats, but rather they will vote for policies to make their labor more scarce and to prevent jobs from being off-shored. And this is somehow an affront to who we are as Americans. Trump voters would rather work and make an honest dollar, and that somehow makes them angry.

    I turned on the TV last night in order to catch the 11:00 pm repeat of the O'Reilly show who had Donald Trump as his guest for the first 15 minutes and caught the last segment on Hannity (about the 10:50 pm mark), who was talking to two blacks, a relatively conservative black woman and a liberal black man. I didn't catch his name, but the black man launched into a tirade about how Donald Trump was responsible for all the violence that has been cropping up at his rallies. I think the Democrats are smart enough to realize that all the TV footage showing out-of-control Mexican thugs beating up on peaceful Trump supporters is not playing well for their candidate and are trying to throw the blame for the violence on Trump.

    His name is: Eric Guster, a motor-mouthed lawyer who tries to bully any panelists with whom he shares a time-spot. He is where he is first because he’s black and because he spews like the allegedly reverends Jackson and Sharpton. Hannity’s show is becoming a series of shouting match es which he fails to control. When that happens, I usually switch to the Tennis Channel which is not particularly diverse. I watch it with the sound muted as the commentators are awful.

    O’Reilly’s show has similar shouting segments almost always when Juan Williams, another black motor-mouth, is a panelist or when that runty greaseball, Rivera, is on. He’s the latino version of the black Baptist preacher model.

    One interesting characteristic of the motor-mouths and progressive reporters is their nearly universal lack of military service. Check Wikipedia on your pet peeve panelist and see what I mean. Hilary even married a draft-dodger and wasn’t it one of their staffers who said she: “Loathed the military”?

    I can't stand Juan Williams, he sounds like a snake oil salesmen when he tells Conservatives on The Five that if The Republican Party ever wants to win presidential elections again they need to move more to the Left on immigration.

    Those Mexican thugs who physically assault Donald Trump supporters and burn the American flag, they still would not have voted Republican if Little Marco or Low Energy Jeb had won the GOP nomination and that is because they are Far Left Wing communist anarchists who worship Che Guevara. Even a Marco or a Jeb is still too Right Wing for them.

    Thanks. I am not familiar with the gentleman. By coincidence, I ran across the name of the "conservative woman" who appeared on Hannity that night by seeing her name yesterday on a piece in RCP that triggered a memory. Her name is Stacey Dash. She apparently is a Fox commentator because she is one of those rare birds, a conservative in the movie business in Hollywood who is willing to speak out about her conservative positions. I was also surprised to be reminded that she was Cher's close friend Dionne in one of my favorite movies, "Clueless," that came out 20 years ago. Both she and Hannity expressed astonishment at the baseless nonsense that Eric Guster spouted that night about how Trump was responsible for the violence at his rallies.

    To be fair, Black men beat the ever loving hell out of Black women way more than they do white women. Black women are almost totally inured to it. Many, if not most, Black women have been repeatedly beaten by one or more significant other. They also know, that most of the time, said significant other will stop short of killing them, so they don't necessarily make the leap from jealousy based abuse to murder. That is why Blacks on O.J.'s jury were not impressed by Nicole having a few bruises on her face, that just means love to them. Black women are incredibly loyal to Black men. I often think they are trying to make up for how often they (willingly) consorted with the slave masters and the slave masters' sons. In any case, we white women could take a leaf out of their book and be more supportive, loyal and faithful to our white men.

    Was there ever a period after US vs Wong Kim Ark when the children of illegal immigrants did NOT get citizenship? Even if you acknowledge that the Supreme Court never explicitly decided on the matter (leaving aside that 1982 footnote by Justice Brennan), you have to account for what appears to be uniform precedent in granting citizenship to anyone born on US soil, with the exceptions of the children of diplomats, i.e. those who are in the country on official business and who are explicitly removed from our legal jurisdiction.

    I agree, by the way, that citizenship should not be handed out willy-nilly to the children of foreigners, at least not while citizenship carries with it all the "free" stuff that taxpayers provide. But in terms of constitutional law and jurisprudence, the matter is not so clear cut. A new amendment that replaces all or part of the divisive 14th amendment would be best.

    However, Trump being Trump and his followers being his followers, it's possible he'll play to their stupidity yet again. And, his followers will eat it up.

    Of course, Trump is smart so he knows appealing to dunderheads isn't how he'd win the general. He'll toss said dunderheads under his bus and there won't be anything they can do about it.

    Each year thousands of Chinese apply for asylum because China has persecuted some Christians

    http://www.christianpost.com/news/christian-chinese-immigrant-gains-second-chance-at-us-asylum-after-failing-judges-surprise-bible-quiz-113377/

    In 2009, Chang asked immigration judge Barbara Nelson for U.S. asylum, claiming that he had been beaten and imprisoned in the Asian country for months after attending a church that wasn't sanctioned by the Chinese government.......In order to test Chang's religious claims, Judge Nelson asked the immigrant to explain the story of Paul to her in court.....

    Thus our immigration Judges have extensive experience judging the religious beliefs of immigrants to determine if they qualify for visas and green cards.

    Baloney. I’m a lawyer who has substantial experience in Chinese asylum cases which are generally based on Christian beliefs or the one-child policy. Last week, I had a client who applied on both basis. Asylum officers interview applicants and used to ask Biblical questions. The lawyers would prep the asylees as the questions were from a list. If the asylee’s application was dis approved, they would eventually wind up in Immigration Court where similar questions would be asked. These were perfunctory and simple questions all from the same list. Applicants were more often asked to tell their favorite Bible story. Within the last few years, the practice has stopped as a federal court opined that such questions were improper.

    so you confirmed the details of the article, Judges have routinely ask questions to determine the religious beliefs of asylum seekers until recently.

    as recently as 2009 Judges were asking questions to determine if migrants were christians, and thus granted asylum based on their religious beliefs.

    Wasn't that the same President who interned many Japanese-Americans during WWII and a smaller number of Italian-Americans and German-Americans? At the instigation of then California Attorney General Earl Warren who later went on to greater fame as an idol of civil libertarians, and the subsequent approval by the Supreme Court, most of whose members that very President had appointed. That President? (BTW, do you know who opposed the internment of Japanese-Americans and others? Why J. Edgar Hoover, that great scourge of civil liberties.

  • As a lawyer whose practice includes some but not all aspects of immigration law, I assure you Brooks really is a moron as the poster above wrote. He has no clue as to the multiple facets of immigration law and his perception of it is likely limited to Mexicans. The entire system does not need reform. In fact, most of the problem lies in the enforcement area where we sometimes have an utter lack of enforcement; a lack of lawful enforcement or erratic enforcement by local level functionaries varying widely from location to location.

    As one example, all visa applicants from whatever country must provide documentation of an American financial sponsor. Sometimes, the sponsor must provide tax returns as proof of ability to support the applicant so the applicant doesn’t become a supplicant while visiting. But none of that applies to illegal aliens present in the country. As every visa applicant knows, getting here is the problem because once here, it is difficult to be deported. The process of removal takes years via the immigration courts and, often, the alien just disappears before his case is even adjudicated. If ever located, the process is re-started.

    Reformation is not needed so much as consistent enforcement of the body of law as written.

    Proposition 187 was pretty tepid anyway. Raising the minimum wage for foreigners to, oh, $35/hr would have slowed immigrant growth considerably. Even if the courts threw it out, it would have put the focus on the real problem.

    One question, though: how come "affordable family formation" only applies to whites? "Latinos/as" don't seem to find California expensive.

    I would think that’s because Latinos tend to house multiple or extended families in one apartment/home than whites. The math there reduces the housing cost per person. Too, there is more Latino type work in LA or SoCal than, say, in Salt Lake City. And, as we all know, Latinos prefer the warmer climate; whites don’t seem to mind the cold as much.
