One Chance Is All a Terrorist Needs

On June 22, 2015 the ICE Newsroom posted a startling “Top Story” news release under the category, “Document and Benefit Fraud.” The title of the news release was obviously crafted to create the illusion that a major vulnerability to U.S. national security, the threat of a terror attack, was being addressed: “ ICE-DMV partnership combating identity, document fraud .” The news release was accompanied by a poster. If a picture is worth a thousand [...]

Independence Day 2015: A Message about Fear

By Brian Camenker Today, July 4, we celebrate the signing of the Declaration of Independence and the Revolutionary War which made the United States of America a reality.

Immigration and Political Racial 'Profiling'

Whenever the discussion on news programs turns to immigration and politics, invariably the issue of the “Latino Vote” will be raised within the first two sentences of the conversation. It is truly remarkable that the same participants in the discussions on programs who are quick to invoke the concept of block votes -- such as the “Latino voters,” "black voters” or “Jewish Voters” -- are just as quick to condemn any sort of profiling [...]

Supreme Court Disasters

Many people are looking at the recent Supreme Court decisions about ObamaCare and same-sex marriage in terms of whether they think these are good or bad policies. That is certainly a legitimate concern, for both those who favor those policies and those who oppose them. But there is a deeper and more long-lasting impact of these decisions that raise the question whether we are still living in America, where "we the people" are supposed [...]
