Whose safety is more important?

Today, two big hypocrites held a joint press conference at the White House. President Barack Obama and Mexican President Felipe Calderon took the opportunity to come together in a spirit of anti-Americanism to blast Arizona’s new immigration law.

Oh, the hilarity!

Boat people?

She sounds French

When I saw this report, the first thought was: "DeGaulle of that woman!" Elvira Arellano was kicked out of the United States last week after she entered the country illegally -- twice -- and defied a deportation order for years. The United States is the one who broke the law first. By letting people cross […]
