    resident Obama on Monday hosted a meeting on the “simmering mistrust” between the police and communities of color, collecting input from a wide range of the leftist political spectrum, from Al Sharpton to the National Council of La Raza to Millennial Activists United. Fox News host Greta Van Susteren noted one group that wasn’t represented; victims of crime, such as those citizens in Ferguson whose businesses were looted and burned down in the riots.

    Texas Gov. Rick Perry has decided to spend a pre-July Fourth vacation in South Carolina -- setting off a few early 2016 White House fireworks. Perry will headline a hamburgers and hot dog cookout fundraiser for Republican Rep. Mick Mulvaney at City of Light in Indian Land on July 2. Tickets cost $10 per person, $25 per family and $250 for a chance to have a photo with the Lone Star State boss.

Eric Cantor a rough "welcome" in his own district -- sending a message that the House GOP leadership would be wise to heed before they hand Barack Obama a victory on "immigration reform". Cantor (R-Va.), the House Majority Leader was "heckled and booed" by conservatives and Tea Party activists at the 7th Congressional District Convention held in Richmond Saturday.  — and that wasn’t even the worst of it.

    PANAMA CITY, Fla. (AP) — On a recent swing through the most conservative parts of his state, Sen. Marco Rubio told a packed banquet hall at the St. Andrews Bay Yacht Club that major policy issues were threatening the American dream: onerous taxes, burdensome regulations — and, above all, President Barack Obama's health care law. But all Doc Washburn wanted to know about was immigration. The local radio talk-show host asked the Republican senator why he had worked with Democrats on legislation that would give the estimated 11 million immigrants here illegally an eventual path to citizenship. "We know you,...

And ever since Chicago’s own Barack Obama took office, we have seen an explosion in this type of corrupt arrangement. Whether we’re talking about Obamacare favors for union bosses or illegal payments to ACORN and its spinoffs, the Obama administration knows how to take care of its “friends,” and that includes the crazies from “La Raza.” On July 18, 2012, we filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Obama Department of Health and Human...

    The Tucson Unified School District (TUSD) is in a contentious fight with the state of Arizona over its controversial Mexican-American Studies program. A state law went into effect in Arizona on January 1, 2011, banning the teaching of ethnic studies in K-12 schools. It was prompted by an investigation into TUSD’s ethnic studies curriculum by Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne when he was State Superintendent of Schools. The program is known as “raza studies,” which means race studies, championed by organizations like the far left organization National Council of La Raza. The course does not simply teach Latino youth about...

But far more shocking was the "Raza Studies" curriculum the students were rioting to defend ("La Raza" = "The Race"). Raza Studies teaches children that Mexico was STOLEN from Mexico by the U.S. It turns U.S. history on its head. Students are taught they were "colonized" by American "invaders" and that those lands - called "Aztlan" - must be "liberated" ("La Reconquista") by Mexican-Americans.

    Immigration reform is dead. But before conservatives who killed this bill start popping champagne corks, they ought to consider the following. Our borders will be less secure, not more. Employers who want to do the right thing and only hire legal workers won't have the tools to do so. The 12 million illegal aliens who are here now will continue to live in the shadows, making them less likely to cooperate with law enforcement to report crimes and less likely to pay their full share of taxes. In other words, the mess we created by an outdated and ill-conceived immigration...
