    Cardinal Timothy Dolan has penned an op-ed reacting to Donald Trump’s speech at his campaign launch for a 2016 presidential run–six weeks ago–calling the Republican candidate a harbinger of anti-Catholic, racist “nativism.”Cardinal Dolan writes at the New York Daily News:During those happy days decades ago when I taught American religious history to university students, I spent a chunk of time in class on the ugly phenomenon called nativism, defined by the scholar and author Ray Allen Billington as, “organized, white, Protestant antagonism toward the Catholic immigrant.”

    Columnist and author of “Adios, America” Ann Coulter stated she could see Donald Trump winning the presidency “more than I can see any of the other ones winning the nomination and winning the presidency right now” on Monday’s “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel. Coulter said she would continue supporting Trump “as long as he keeps talking the way he’s talking on immigration.” and “I can see him more than I can see any of the other ones winning the nomination and winning the presidency right now, certainly winning the presidency.” Earlier, she stated, “My only quibble with him is...

    Has Donald Trump made his first serious boo-boo of the campaign? For weeks, the media have trumpeted the supposed death of the Trump campaign. First, they claimed, Trump’s campaign imploded on launch thanks to his comments about illegal immigration. Then they claimed that Trump was finished because of his slap at Senator Sen. John McCain (R-AZ)43% ’s (R-AZ) war service. But neither of those comments alienated Trump’s base – he’s maintained his seven point lead over Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker in the 2016 presidential polls, with no other candidate breaking double-digits in the polls. In fact, his original comments about...

    Donald Trump’s blunt and clumsy comments about illegal immigration sparked the usual firestorm of criticism from the well heeled of both parties. Particularly vocal were those Republicans who think that an amorphous, make-believe category comprising “Hispanics” or “Latinos” will vote Republican if only Republican meanies like Trump would stop insulting them by complaining about illegal aliens. As usual, willful ignorance or blindness about the costs of illegal immigration underwrites these dubious ideas.

    The immigration plan proposed by the Gang of Eight would have dispensed more than 30 million green cards in its first ten years. A green card is an immigration document that authorizes immigrants to collect welfare and become voting citizens, among other things. In a recent but overlooked interview on MSNBC’s Up With Steve Kornacki, Sen. Schumer (D-NY) explained how he was personally responsible for “recruiting” Sen.

    For years, Republican candidates have been assured by their political consultants that amnesty is a runaway hit with the public. Then they always come in for a zinger of a surprise when the American people are finally able to express themselves on the subject. (Sometimes it seems as if political consultants are in the game only to make money.) Washington has tried to sneak through three amnesties in the last decade -- in 2006, 2007 and 2013. Each time, amnesty had the full support of the media, the White House, leaders of both political parties, big campaign donors and lobbyists....

    Why has the Donald Trump candidacy—which so many professionals and pundits at first dismissed as a joke—flared this summer? In the first week of July, 15 percent of Republicans supported Trump for president in a YouGov poll. By the third week, that support had almost doubled, to 28 percent—with another 10 percent listing him as their second choice. Something happened in July to send Trump’s numbers soaring. That something may have been the murder of Kathryn Steinle. On July 5, the 32-year-old Steinle posed with her father for a photograph on a San Francisco pier at 6:30 on a Wednesday...

    Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders took a surprising line on immigration in a recent interview, denouncing higher immigration levels as a right-wing “Koch brothers proposal.” Sanders was being interviewed by Ezra Klein of Vox, who pointed out that Sanders’ self-proclaimed socialist beliefs typically entailed taking a more international view of politics. The implications of that point of view, Klein suggested, include “things like sharply raising the level of immigration we permit, even up to a level of open borders.” Absolutely not, Sanders replied. “Open borders? No, that’s a Koch brothers proposal,” he said. “That’s a right-wing proposal, which says essentially there...

Bush made his remarks at church in Orlando, where he discussed his Christian faith and support for amnesty for illegal aliens, the same day a CNN poll showed that 64 percent of Republican voter support deporting illegals. Self-deportation is another matter: Since the vast majority of illegal aliens commit felonies in order to forge their documents, something like E-Verify could halt fraud in its tracks.

Voters in the radical middle, Newsweek wrote, “see the traditional political system itself as the country’s chief problem.” The radical middle is attracted to populists, outsiders, businessmen such as Perot and Lee Iacocca who have never held office, and to anyone, according to Newsweek, who is the “tribune of anti-insider discontent.” Newt Gingrich...

    It's become one of his loudest, most frequently repeated boasts. As polls have shown him surging to the top of the Republican pack, Donald Trump has made a point of asserting his particular strength among Hispanic voters. "I have so many Hispanics, and they love me," Trump said during a speech in Laconia, New Hampshire, last week. "And interestingly, we just got from the state of Nevada a poll [that] just came out, and Trump won with a tremendous amount. And the second line was, 'Takes Hispanic vote in a landslide,' and I've been saying that. I'm going to win...

    Donald Trump’s incendiary rhetoric isn’t making him a lot of friends among his fellow candidates for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, but it’s winning him converts in California. “If I walked into a poll booth right now, and I had to cast my vote, I would vote for Donald Trump,” said Robin Hvidston, the executive director of the Claremont-based We the People Rising, a grass-roots organization pushing for stronger enforcement of existing immigration laws and the enactment of stricter immigration laws. “I wouldn’t have said that three weeks ago. ... Both parties are so ingrained in political correctness and both...
  • Trump’s track record on race troubling, activists say: Timeline included

    Donald Trump set heads steaming last month when he accused undocumented Mexican immigrants of being criminals and rapists, but it wasn’t the first time Trump found himself in hot water over racial issues. “Latinos may be angry at what Trump said, but we’re not surprised by it,” Janet Murguía, president of Hispanic advocacy group the National Council of La Raza, said Tuesday at the organization’s annual conference. “The demonization of our community is not new. When you attribute traits such as drug dealers, murderers, rapists to an entire group of people, that is by definition racism.” In April, Trump provoked...

    The murder of Kate Steinle in San Francisco by a seven-time felon and five-time deportee has sparked a nationwide debate about sanctuary cities and immigration policy.We recently learned that in one eight-month period in 2014, more than 8,100 deportable aliens were released by sanctuary jurisdictions. Of those, three thousand were felons and 62 percent had a prior criminal record. Nineteen hundred were later rearrested a total of 4,300 times on 7,500 different offenses.But this debate over sanctuary policies has brought attention to another horrifying result of the federal government’s refusal to enforce our immigration law: the failure to deport convicted...

    While the Spring 2015 Unified Agenda is markedly vague concerning most of its 3,415 regulations, clearly its overarching purpose is to enforce American compliance with an ever-expanding body of “international norms” like those required by the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty. Consequently, the 2015 Unified Agenda contains a number of backdoor gun control measures designed to further restrict the possession, storage, sale and acquisition of firearms and ammunition by law-abiding citizens; yet in contrast, the Obama administration intends to lessen such restrictions for non-citizens. Rule 1140-AA44, originally signed by Eric Holder, “would finalize an interim rule published on...

    Representative Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) stated that “those of us who have daughters, saw our daughters in Kate Steinle” on Thursday’s “On the Record” on the Fox News Channel. Gowdy said, “the president said that he saw Trayvon — in Trayvon Martin, he saw his son. Well, I can tell you, those of us who have daughters, saw our daughters in Kate Steinle. And he’s got two of them too, so at a minimum, he ought to pick up the phone and tell the Steinle family that ‘I grieve for you.'”

    On June 23, 2014 35 members of Congress sent a letter to DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson, urging him to release lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) illegals. Due to significantly higher sexual assault rates among this population in Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody, ICE established a working group to develop recommendations to address this very real and serious issue. However, Congress is pressuring DHS to release these individuals before the working group’s recommendations have been reviewed. The members stated in their letter that, “…detention should almost never be used for vulnerable groups such as LGBT immigrants.” It is unclear...

    Brad Lena sees Donald Trump through the prism of Star Wars: “a disturbance in The Force.” The billionaire businessman and reality TV star arrived Thursday at the U.S.-Mexico border to emphasize his hardline stance against immigration, in a week of attention-getting moments that thrust Trump into the lead among 16 GOP hopefuls for the White House. It's his disruption of the political class “that continues unimpeded their malevolent contributions to the rule of law, freedom of conscience, representative governance, competitive capitalism, freedom of speech, fiduciary stewardship and so on,” Lena, 62, of Bell Acres, a small borough northwest of Pittsburgh,...

    The border security movement had been losing steam, but is being reinvigorated by the focus of presidential candidate Donald Trump, Politico reports. The Republican Party, hoping to lure more Hispanic voters, had not planned to focus on illegal immigration or border security during the 2016 election cycle, but that changed when Trump uttered the now infamous words about Mexican immigrants during his June 16 entry into the GOP race. "When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best," Trump said. "They're sending people that have lots of problems … They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some,...

    Entities have identities. To identify a nation, or anything else, is to define it. That is, it must have specific limits — one must be able to tell what it is, largely by ruling out what it is not, implicitly and explicitly. In the case of a country, there must be territorial boundaries. It also has have additional characteristics to distinguish it from other countries. That’s where America went wrong, and dead-ended. In trying to be all things to all people everywhere around the globe (not so much a place, necessarily, but an idea, of limitless opportunity and diversity), we...
