    Despite our unprecedentedly generous legal immigration system, the American people are constantly lectured about the need to grant more benefits to illegal immigrants. Illegal immigrants likely have more outside political capital than any other groups per capita in this country. Their voices are always heard, even though they have no right to be in this country to begin with. Yet, few politicians ever give voice to the people for whom they are sworn to protect American citizens who suffer from the infinite cost of illegal immigration. This represents one of the most immoral dichotomies of our time ...

This is our second Valentine's Day without our mom.

Talking Points Memo has a plethora of examples of the full-force sexist attacks. And Twitter exploded earlier this week with the #MoreFakeThanWendyDavis hashtag, making fun of Davis for being a liar. The problem is that the Dallas Morning News article that caused this backlash is questionable at best, and is undeniably sexist in its telling of Davis' story....
