Texas Gov. Rick Perry told President Obama and the House Committee on Homeland Security that the border between the U.S. and Mexico is less secure today than at any time in the recent past. Now he's deploying 1,000 Texas National Guardsmen to the Rio Grande Valley because the federal government has failed to adequately secure the border.
Rep. Bob Goodlatte of Virginia reports that an internal Department of Homeland Security report shows that at least 70% of asylum cases contain proven or possible fraud and that begs the question: What will Chairman Goodlatte and his Republican colleagues do about it?
Eric Cantor's defeat is a useful reminder that even the political class is ultimately accountable to the people, but only by sharing that message widely do we have any chance of rolling back the rampant political privilege and cronyism which dominates Washington today.
If there's a tech-worker shortage why did Microsoft just announce that it will eliminate up to 18,000 jobs over the next year? About 12,500 professional and factory jobs will be cut starting with 1,351 jobs in the Seattle area, yet current law will allow about 1 million legal immigrants and 700,000 guest workers to enter the country each year.

Governor Bobby Jindal is right to use Louisiana’s state procurement system to make sure that students, parents and taxpayers are getting the best deal for their tax dollars, especially if that breaks-up the cozy financial relationships between those who write the Common Core standards, those who write the textbooks and tests and those who sell the technology, textbooks and tests.
Most Republicans in Congress seem to be willing to chase the latest bunny that the leadership has released to distract them from the real problem -- Obama's lawless refusal to faithfully execute the laws Congress passes and secure our southern border.
The Cornyn – Cuellar bill is a distraction; it changes a law that affects less than 20 percent of all the illegals coming across the border right now. If it passes the House, it will only prove to be a plate upon which the Gang of Eight bill or something equally distasteful is served on a take it or leave it basis.
