As I predicted, the subject of escalating border violence was ignored during last night’s presidential debate. And the debate questions that should have been asked in relation to the death of Border Patrol Agent Nicholas Ivie this week, weren’t. I repeat: –Border security/homeland security. On Tuesday morning, one Border Patrol agent was gunned down and […]

Longtime readers know I’ve dedicated much of my work over the last two decades to our broken borders and reckless bipartisan sabotage of immigration enforcement. Decades before Fast and Furious, there were dozens of law enforcement and federal officers who sacrificed their lives in defense of our sovereignty. Just like Border Patrol agent Brian Terry, […]

Let’s get ready to rumble
**Written by Doug Powers When I heard that August 1st was the target date for National Guard troops at the US/Mexico border, I thought they meant August of this year, but that was a naive assumption. June 3: Mrs. Brewer said Mr. Obama promised to send administration officials to Arizona within a couple of weeks […]
“We’ll leave the light on for ya…”
You’ve no doubt read about the Palin family’s snoopy new neighbor, author Joe McGinniss, who has rented a house 15 feet from the Palins’ backyard to conduct binocular-aided research for his Random House book. I’ll share more thoughts later on the media ethics issues and media double standards involved. For his part, Todd Palin wasted […]
Yes we can!
Last week, I noted the murder of Border Patrol Agent Robert Rosas. He left behind a wife and two children. His community in Arizona has set up several memorial funds. The website “chipin” has a memorial page set up in honor of Agent Rosas. People can pay via credit or debit card. Proceeds will go […]
McCain at The Race conference: Capitulation complete; Update: Juan Hernandez to broker meeting with Morones?
As expected, John McCain’s appearance at the annual convention of La Raza/The Race yielded no Hermana Souljah moments. Ed Morrissey points to McCain’s mild, almost apologetic rejoinder to open-borders zealot Enrique Morones and compares it to Barack Obama’s embrace of the radical activist. That’s a relief. But it’s the very least we could expect of […]
Be still my beating heart…

When I was writing Invasion five years ago, I interviewed immigration officials who joked that the rule for border-crossing prosecutions in southern California and Arizona was “thirteen strikes and you’re out.” So this new story from the Associated Press headlined “Border crossings rarely prosecuted” in Texas is no surprise. Same old, same old: Guidelines issued […]
