Jenny Beth’s Journal: “Why is the Senate putting the cart before the horse” on illegal immigration

They did not come ...

The Washington has the story:   Border authorities say they struggle to get some U.S. attorneys to pursue cases, and lawyers say the attempts aren’t worth the time. It often takes some indicator of gang or other criminal activity on someone’s record to tip the scales in favor of prosecution. Chris ...
