Immigration Tidbits

  • Another “job Americans won’t do” — policework!
  • Kansas and Missouri won’t give tax refunds to illegal aliens because tax officials “insist that taxpayers must provide truthful information.” What a concept!
  • Ten years ago Congress demanded fingerprint matching for all Mexicans using Border Crossing Cards to enter the U.S. — but it almost never happens: “There is not a technology solution currently available that will not cause delays that are well beyond the acceptable levels,” one official said. Acceptable to whom?
  • Now the drug cartels are assassinating government officials in Mexico City itself. There may (or may not) be things we can do to help the Mexican government defend itself, but one thing we need to do is protect ourselves by limiting Mexico’s spillover across the border.
