A lawman’s perspective on illegal immigration

Amnesty — “comprehensive immigration reform”, or whatever you want to call it — is on everyone’s mind here in the heat of Campaign 2014.  In fact, congresswoman Renee Ellmers had  a nasty on-air fight with nationally-syndicated conservative radio host Laura Ingraham on the subject. I…

#NCSEN Mark Harris OK with “path to legal status” for illegals

Immigration has become quite a flashpoint in American politics.  It’s turned Republicans against each other — some using code words that basically mean “amnesty,” others demanding that the government simply enforce the laws on the books.  Charlotte pastor, and Republican US Senate candidate, Mark Harris…

Illegal Alien. Fence Jumper. Rio Grande swimmer. ID-deficient landscaper. potato. poh-tah-toe.

Ever notice how news stories these days rarely mention the suspect’s race?  “Police urge residents to be on the lookout for two men in their 20s, about six feet tall, wearing dark clothing.”  In — say — a college town, that description would produce a…

Thom & Bru: Mutual back-scratching at its best

Thom Tillis and Harold Brubaker have quite a special political bond. They are the only two Republican speakers of the North Carolina House since Reconstruction.  The two became very close upon Tillis joining the House in 2006.  On the eve of Brubaker’s 2012 departure from…

NC-02: Ellmers sweating the immigration issue

I got ANOTHER campaign mailer from Renee Ellmers this weekend disguised as “official business.”  I know I have worked this issue over here and here.  But it is just so brazen and arrogant for someone – -claiming to be a Tea Party conservative — to campaign…

#NCSEN Speaker Thom speaks on taxes, immigration

    So far, during this primary campaign, you’ve had to (a) friend Speaker Thom on Facebook or (b) attend a high-dollar fundraiser to hear state House speaker Thom Tillis comment on the issues.  We’re changing things up, thanks to the wonders of email: So,…

El Sr. Tillis bajo el fuego de la inmigración opiniones

      Yep.  Ol’ Thom is getting some scrutiny on the issue of amnesty / immigration reform.  Nationally-renowned conservative pundit Ann Coulter called attention to Tillis’ views today: I know.  I know.  Ann was awfully impressed with Mitt Romney and Chris Christie in 2012. …

About those vetoes …

The mainstream media is having a field day setting up the narrative for this special session of the legislature: Republican legislators who helped elect our rookie Republican governor are in the awkward spot of overriding the vetoes of — and embarrassing — said rookie Republican…

Senatorita Kay Hagan: Amnesty es muy bueno !

      Well, Senate Democrats and 15 sell-out dirtbag RINOS have rammed through immigration legislation that makes a mockery of US citizenship and — if approved by the House — will fundamentally change our country demographically and politically. Our gal Kay, that is, Senator…

My two cents (or so) on all of this immigration talk

      We’ve got all kinds of folks at the federal and state level opining on this issue.  (Never mind the anemic economic growth, the smothering bureaucracy, and the record unemployment.)  I’m of two minds about the issue of immigration.  On one hand, I…
