    In testimony before the House Judiciary Committee Tuesday, Eric Holder offered an alarming new doctrine for the Republic: laws are only suggestions, and the real authority to enforce or not enforce them lies in the hands of the president and his cabinet officers. (snip) There is a vast amount of discretion that a president has — and more specifically that an attorney general has,” Holder responded. “But that discretion has to be used in an appropriate way so that your acting consistent with the aims of the statute but at the same time making sure that you are acting in

    If the story about Wal-Mart getting away for years with employing illegal immigrants as janitors didn't make the United States' ambivalence about immigration law clear, the latest report from the General Accounting Office should do it. The GAO, which does in-depth research for Congress, found that the feds have virtually stopped cracking down on employers who hire illegal immigrants. In 1999, for example, federal authorities sent notices of intent to fine to 417 employers. In 2004, they only sent those same notices to three employers. Similarly, the number of arrests made in workplace raids has plummeted from 2,849 in 1999...

    JERUSALEM – An Arab lawmaker will propose a Knesset bill next week seeking to ban all Druze Arab soldiers from participating in the evacuation of Jewish communities from Gaza and parts of the West Bank this summer, WorldNetDaily has learned.

"My community didn't come to Israel to rip Jews out of their houses," Kara said. "Druze Arabs gladly become soldiers in...

    Lessons learned from the Jessie Lunsford case Senator Nancy Argenziano has had some tough trips home in recent weeks. The central Florida legislator's district includes the family, friends, and neighbors of Jessie Lunsford, one of three children in as many weeks who have been stalked, brutalized, raped and killed by repeat sex offenders. Restive crowds of Senator Argenziano's constituents, meeting with her on weekend breaks from her duties in Tallahassee, want to know why laws and judges and parole boards failed to protect Jessie and other victims of similar horrific murders. They want to know why the system not only...
