    Piers Morgan has continued with his gun-bashing. Here's his latest, Deport Me?Morgan makes a number of huge mistakes and misrepresentations in his assault, not unlike Jason Alexander's rant against the AR-15.Here are key points where Morgan (and other gun control nuts) go unbelievably wrong: [M]y anger turned to blind rage when I saw the reaction to this hideous massacre in America. … Sales of the specific weapon used, an AR-15 military-style assault rifle, rocketed …. And … Brownells said it sold more high-capacity bullet magazines in three days than it normally did in three-and-a-half years.What is behind this apparently...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham has long been a thoughtful and constructive legislator. But the South Carolina Republican made a statement last week that showed why Washington is losing the public's trust and his party in particular is losing its sense of duty. Graham had joined with Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) to present a well-reasoned outline for immigration reform that, while not as historic as the health care bill just passed, may have as much impact on who we are as a country. Then Graham threatened to walk away from his own proposal. "If the health care bill goes through this weekend,...

  • Haitian president wants temporary protective status for Haitians in America

    ISSUE: Haitian president wants temporary protective status for Haitians in America. Haitian President Ren Prval has finally asked the U.S. government to extend temporary protective status to Haitians. The designation is long overdue, and President Bush would do well to grant Prval's request. Haiti, already the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, was further devastated by last year's Tropical Storm Noel, the latest in a string of natural disasters that have rocked the country in recent times. TPS would temporarily protect Haitians already in the United States -- many of them parents of U.S. born children -- from deportation. TPS...

    When figuring ways to shape public opinion, the first thing any savvy strategist does is craft phrases that will elicit a desired response. Want people to have a more positive reaction to dead Iraqi civilians? Call them "collateral damage." Want to get Americans to feel good about government spying? Name your law "The Patriot Act." If you can control the words people use, you can frame the issue. In effect, you control the way people view it. That is exactly what is happening with the immigration debate. To avoid dealing with complex problems in our nation - crumbling public schools,...

    LONDON (Reuters) - Militant Islamists will continue to attack Britain until the government pulls its troops out of Iraq and Afghanistan, one of the country's most outspoken Islamic clerics said on Friday. Speaking 15 days after bombers killed over 50 people in London and a day after a series of failed attacks on the city's transport network, Sheikh Omar Bakri Mohammed said the British capital should expect more violence. "What happened yesterday confirmed that as long as the cause and the root problem is still there ... we will see the same effect we saw on July 7," Bakri said....

    Ramiro Cruz doesn't know who Homeland Secretary Tom Ridge is. But he appreciated what Ridge said last week about legalizing undocumented immigrants. "The man is right. I hope he can do something for us," said Cruz while he waited for a drive-by job offer on South Ninth Avenue Monday morning. Gonzalo Mendoza, who was waiting on the street which serves as an unofficial day laborer hiring site, agreed with Cruz who was about a block away. "I can't believe that someone in the United States government would say something like that. It seems that the politicians in Mexico and the...

    Something I often see missing in the news about illegal immigrants, is what they bring to America. We all know about the financial drain on health care, and welfare, but what about the culture shock to American citizens? Have you seen how some of our cities are looking lately? Illegals are coming over in such great numbers that we are starting to live in their cultural standards. My neighborhood is now filled with people that think the front yard is a parking lot, and that standing in the front yard drinking Bud Light and partying after work is OK. Businesses...

    Illegal immigration is an enormous problem for the United States, and one that is growing, with nine to eleven million illegal aliens currently estimated to be in the U.S. While most efforts to halt illegal immigration have focused on our southern land border, the difficulties are spread throughout the immigration system. Spotty or haphazard efforts to end illegal immigration cannot succeed. In order to compose an overall, cohesive plan, FAIR sponsored an experts' study that resulted in the report Ten Steps to Ending Illegal Immigration. It is important to realize that the proposals outlined below are not separate, but...

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Advocates are asking Hispanics throughout the state to flex their economic muscle Friday by refusing to go to work, school or stores. The planned statewide boycott, organized by two Southern California advocacy groups, is a response to last week's repeal of a law that would have allowed undocumented immigrants to get driver's licenses. "Latino and immigrant communities don't have to roll over," said Edward Headington, a spokesman for the Mexican American Political Association, one of the organizers of the boycott. "It's saying that there is strength in numbers." At 11.9 million, Hispanics make up about a...

    San Francisco-AP -- Hispanics in California are being urged to stay home from school, work and stores tomorrow to protest the repeal of a driver's license law. The measure, which would have allowed undocumented immigrants to get driver's licenses, was signed by former Governor Gray Davis. However, it has been repealed by Governor Schwarzenegger. A spokesman for the Mexican American Political Association says the strike is a matter of "respect and dignity." Edward Headington says protesters hope to remind legislators that the driver's license issue has not been forgotten. However, some people are expressing reservations about the protest. An official...
