La Raza ignores truth in push to reward illegal immigration

What Murguia and Neas propose changing is the age-old principle that parents must consider the impact of their actions on their children. Their idea is to exempt from responsibility those who violate U.S. immigration laws and reward them with full taxpayer-supported healthcare benefits, far beyond the basic emergency treatment now guaranteed by law.

FAIR concurs with Murguia and Neas that we should not tolerate large numbers of children who fall outside the healthcare system. However, instead of remedying the situation by sticking the American taxpayer with the bill and encouraging still more people to come to our country illegally, FAIR believes that we need to enforce our laws sensibly and reduce the number of people who are living here illegally and taking advantage of scarce public resources.

Washington

The time we don’t have


From Hilda Ashworth

(Regarding article, “Obama, Medvedev making ‘progress’ on new nuclear treaty,” Nov. 15.) Working with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev on a new nuclear treaty, Obama says, “We’re running out of time” on the issue of Iran agreeing to export its uranium to Russia to be refined only for Iranian nuclear power plants.

No, President Obama, we are running out of time on al Qaeda’s and the Taliban’s successful war of attrition in Afghanistan.  While Obama has spent nearly a year pondering how to get it right on the war in Afghanistan, our enemies, including Iran, are draining our coffers and U.S. troops’ lives.

When President Obama finally figures out how to get it right in Afghanistan, our nation will be drained and unable to fight a nuclear-armed Iran.

With Obama as our commander in chief, the Taliban leader in Afghanistan wasn’t bragging when he said the United States may have more weapons and soldiers, but they had more time.

Courtroom strut

From Al Sartor

(Regarding article, “Holder: Death penalty to be sought for accused Sept. 11 conspirators,” Nov. 13.) Thanks to the president and the attorney general, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed gets his wish to strut before the world on the big New York courtroom stage. He didn’t even have to use the “please don’t throw me in that briar patch” ruse.

 And we thought Brer Fox was dumb.
