A new surge in border crossings is coming

Officials along the U.S.-Mexico border are bracing [1] for another surge of illegal minor crossings, according to news reports. Though the peak may be lower than what we saw in 2014, analysts still project 40,000 crossings by unaccompanied children – a rate that will still put 2015 in the record books. While the surge will put more strain on our border patrol officials, it will no doubt also bring the immigration debate back to the forefront in Washington, D.C. Last year, it’s safe to say, Washington totally and utterly failed at dealing with the border crisis. Congress failed to pass legislation to actually deal with the influx. And ...

Mexican Soldiers Crossing US Border Proves Need for Border Security

On January 26, 2014, a “foreign military incursion” was reported and confirmed just 50 yards past the U.S.-Mexico border into Arizona. According to documents obtained by the Los Angeles Times [1], two heavily-armed and camouflaged Mexican soldiers crossed the border and engaged in a tense, 35 minutes-long standoff with U.S. Border Patrol agents. Guns were drawn. Though shots were never fired, the incident – described by U.S. officials as one of the most serious incursions in recent years – narrowly missed becoming a national tragedy. The Mexican soldiers, who misidentified themselves, only retreated back over the border after the U.S. ...

However, buried in the heap of healthcare nonsense is one sliver of decency that actually protects patients’ privacy when it comes to firearms. Section 2716 part c of the Affordable Care Act prohibits the federal government from using healthcare professionals or patients’ records to collect any information regarding the lawful possession of a firearm or to create a database of gun owners. [2]   While a victory for Second-Amendment enthusiasts, the law hasn’t stopped ...

USA Today requested the article and specifically asked for a defense of the concept of “flip-flopping” by politicians. The paper asked me to reflect on both ...
