    Robert A. Pape is professor of political science at the University of Chicago and the author of the forthcoming Cato Institute paper "Suicide Terrorism and Democracy: What We've Learned since 9/11." The attacks of September 11th, 2001 brought us face to face with the horror of suicide terrorism. In the years since, pundits have painted al Qaeda as a fearless enemy motivated by insatiable religious hatred. Amid prognostications of doom, we lost sight of the truth: that suicide terrorism is a tactic, not an enemy, and that beneath the religious rhetoric with which it is perpetrated, it occurs largely in...

    Border Patrol finds man wanted for sexual offenses BY BILL HESS Sierra Vista Herald/Review DOUGLAS, ARIZONA - An illegal immigrant from El Salvador who was deported in August 1999 and sought for sexual offenses in California was apprehended after he once again illegally entered the United States, a U.S. Border Patrol spokesman said this morning.

    U.S. government betrayal Posted: January 28, 20041:00 a.m. Eastern © 2004 The U.S. government has lied to us. The U.S. government has betrayed the people. The U.S. government is about to do it again. For too many years, Washington, under the control of Democrats and Republicans – it really doesn't matter which – has allowed our nation to be invaded by foreigners. It has done this in clear violation of the law. It has done this in clear opposition to the will of the people. In a normal, functioning, self-governing society, there would be a way to correct this problem peacefully...

    Beginning two to three days after President Bush proposed a plan that would allow illegal aliens to stay in the United States on renewable three-year work visas -- a plan that critics describe as an amnesty in disguise -- the number of illegal aliens caught trying to cross the U.S.-Mexico border jumped dramatically, says a spokesman for the union representing Border Patrolmen. In the San Diego sector of the border "we have two to three times the number we had a few weeks ago," Senior Border Patrol Agent Shawn Moran told HUMAN EVENTS. Moran is spokesman for the local San...

    Bush's Ridiculous Speech About Immigration Reform I just want to comment on a few of the things that jumped out at me as I read the text of Bush's speech about the horrendous new immigration legislation he is going to propose. To begin with, this line just chaps me..."As a nation that values immigration and depends on immigration, we should have immigration laws that work and make us proud. Yet today we do not."No, our immigration laws don't work or make us proud. You know why? Because we don't make an effort to enforce them. It's like telling your kid...

    Denver Post ^ | January 7, 2004 | Paola Farer
    U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo, an outspoken critic of the country’s current immigration policies, called President Bush's immigration reform proposals "dangerous and unworkable." Tancredo, who represents Colorado’s 6th district, criticized the Bush plan for not including tougher border controls and for offering legal status to people currently here illegally. He predicted that the plan would be rejected by Congress. Tancredo is chair of the Congressional Immigration Reform Caucus. "It is dangerous to offer additional incentives and rewards for illegal immigration while giving only lip service to border security," said Tancredo. Tancredo said an amnesty program in 1986 lacked sufficient border controls...

    WASHINGTON (AP)--A plan being proposed by President Bush would give legal status to foreign workers, including millions already toiling in America's underground economy, removing the fear of deportation but not putting them on a fast track toward permanent U.S. residency. In a speech Wednesday at the White House, Bush will ask Congress to approve changes to immigration policy, arguing that they would make the country safer by giving officials a better idea of who is crossing the border, bolster the economy by fulfilling employers' needs and protect illegal workers' rights. Also, in a nod to conservatives who oppose any reward...

    PHOENIX (AP) - The body of a U.S. Border Patrol agent has been recovered from the depths of the Colorado River near Yuma, Ariz., authorities said. James Epling was found and identified shortly after 7 p.m. Friday, said Joe Brigman, spokesman for the Border Patrol's Yuma sector. Epling, 24, was last seen Tuesday chasing a group of immigrants along a river trail just north of the Mexico border. Moments earlier, he had pulled one of the immigrants, a Chinese woman, from the swift-moving water. Divers used sonar and other high-tech equipment in their search. Epling was found in 54-degree water...

    The country needs your faxes and phone calls immediately and steadily over the next few days. Tom Ridge, the head of the new U.S. Department of Homeland Security, yesterday advocated legalizing (giving amnesty) to 8-12 million illegal aliens. Click here to read the story titled: "Homeland security chief endorses legalizing undocumented immigrants." "Click for article" This creates an immediate crisis that must be met with massive outcry -- like the outcry in August of 2001 that stopped Pres. Bush's July proposal for a massive amnesty for some 3.5 million illegal aliens from Mexico. The most important thing is shoot this...

    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...

    Inside his little Western wear store tucked in a corner on East Riverside Drive, Francisco Javier Aceves can't help but feel a kinship with the angular young men who come in to buy jeans, cowboy boots, phone cards and cell phones. As sure as a regular payday, they come in also to wire money to their families back home in Mexico, in places such as Veracruz, Tabasco, Chiapas and Oaxaca. "Sometimes they come three or four in a car," Aceves said about his customers. "Sometimes they just start lining up to wire money." The young men live and work in...
