What Rhymes With Incubus?

The “UndocuBus” is in Memphis today, on its way to the illegal-alien party’s national convention in Charlotte early next month. This is yet another farcical attempt by the open-borders crowd to hijack the symbols of the civil-rights struggle. I loved this line from the site: “Riding the bus alone is a great risk because of the checkpoints and profiling that has become so common.” Profiling? When you call the thing the UndocuBus and paint “No Papers, No Fear” on the side, you don’t need profiling — there’s more than enough “reasonable suspicion” that the bus is full of illegal aliens. Under the current management, ICE won’t do that, and if the state police did, not only would ICE not take them into custody, but Eric Holder would probably sue the state.

Nonetheless, I love that UndocuBus rhymes with incubus, given what illegal immigration is doing to our country. Also, William Shatner was in the movie Incubus. Speaking Esperanto.

Mark Krikorian, a nationally recognized expert on immigration issues, has served as Executive Director of the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) since 1995.

Trump and the Black Vote

"Donald Trump is a racist, white supremacist, white nationalist. So are his supporters." Some version of that refrain is heard almost hourly somewhere in mainstream media.

Courage Is the Cure for Political Correctness

This might come as some surprise to observers of our campus culture wars, but there was a time, not long ago, when the situation in American higher education was much worse. There a wave of vicious campus activism aimed at silencing heterodox speakers, and it was typically empowered by a comprehensive regime of ... Read More

The Age of Miscalculation

On August 7, 1998, more than 200 people were killed in terrorist attacks on U.S. embassies in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and Nairobi, Kenya. Americans learned three names most of them never had heard before: Ayman al-Zawahiri, Osama bin Laden, and al-Qaeda. On August 20, 1998, President Bill Clinton ordered a ... Read More
