by Tony Wyman Can we be honest about immigration for a change? I know we want to blame the issue on politicians and business leaders, but they aren’t the real reason immigrants are coming to the United States.  You are. You, the consumer constantly demanding better goods and services at steadily declining costs, are the primary reason more low-skill immigrant laborers are coming to America.  You are creating a demand for them, a demand that grows year-after-year.

Trump Sacrifices Homeland Security For “Beautiful Wall” And Tax Windfall

by Richard Cameron Donald Trump – as presidential candidate courted his fanatical campaign followers with absolute, unequivocal pledges to beef up border security and protect Americans from terror attacks.

Trump at his speaking podium during rally in Phoenix, Arizona

Because it is the right thing to do? No – because his shriveling…

Trump’s “Big, Beautiful” Wall Part One – Will It Stop The Drug Traffic Across The Border?

by Richard Cameron There is a great deal of debate regarding the border wall that Donald Trump made a signature theme in his campaign rallies. It’s an enduring topic of discussion in diners, taverns, social media, cable news channels and in policy journals. The arguments are multi-faceted, dealing with immigration, narco-trafficking and possible terrorist incursions. And in fact, Trump’s executive order on the construction of the wall, states that the purpose of the wall is – “to prevent illegal immigration, drug and human trafficking, and acts of terrorism.” Because most…
