We can continue to argue about illegal immigration, but there really is no
justification for it.

On June 15, a group of liberal Evangelical Christian and Catholic religious leaders met at the Brookings Institution think tank in Washington, D.C., to discuss one thing: how religious activism can

I find it deeply disturbing, both as a person of faith, and an American
Citizen that Church Leaders (from all denominations) are (often
against the will of the faithful) continuing to involve the Church and
Church members in the secular battle over Amnesty, Open Borders,
and our immigration laws. As devout a believer as there is, I fancy
myself likewise devoted to our constitution. The Founders wisely made
provision for the advancement of faith, without the… Continue

Many of the groups and members in the Texas movement are ramping up for
a big immigration enforcement push before memorial day. I'd like to ask
that all of you get involved and stay involved in this issue. Indeed, I
can think of no problem confronting the citizens of Texas or the larger
United States that would not be measurably improved by securing our
borders, and enforcing our immigration laws at the Local, County, State

In my opinion, if you think the battle against Health Care was long,
drawn out and contentious, just wait until the Obama Administration
rams Comprehensive Immigration Reform and Amnesty down our throats?
Arguably, the Obama Administration was strategic in forcing their
egregious Health Care reform bill first. Their efforts have exhausted
many activists who oppose the Administrations socialist reforms, and
many groups have been drained of resources as well.… Continue
