Immigration Bill Would Create Radically Militarized Border

There’s a worm in the long-awaited immigration reform bill approved by the Senate on Thursday. The number of border agents will double to 40,000, drone use will expand and 700 miles of border fencing will go up. Representatives of two immigrant advocacy groups weigh in.

Why the GOP Can’t Learn

It’s as if they didn’t learn a thing from the 2012 elections. Republicans are on the same suicide mission as before—trying to block immigration reform, roll back the clock on abortion rights and stop gay marriage wherever possible. Why can’t Republicans learn?

Sen. Ted Cruz’s Father Bribed His Way Into U.S.

The Texas Republican has emerged as a leading opponent of a bipartisan Senate bill that would grant a pathway to U.S. citizenship for undocumented immigrants. So it’s interesting to learn that although the elder Cruz, an emigrant from Cuba, says he “came to this country legally,” he also admitted in a recent NPR interview that he basically bribed his way in.

Immigration: Time to Choose Sides

The future of immigration reform is, for now at least, not up to House Speaker John Boehner.

We Are Family

Last week, one of the stars of the "soft" right, David Brooks of The New York Times, wrote a wake-up column with implications for readers who not only do not much like dark-skinned immigration, but are also hostile to such kindling issues as gay marriage and abortion.
