Amnesty Without Border Security?
Should the people know when the border is secure?
American Patrol Report Comment -- November 10   
Border Patrol activity near Tucson --- 60 miles north of border. See larger image...
    Just prior to the Senate vote on amnesty on June 28, 2007, Senator Elizabeth Dole said:
    Senator Dole: ...And certainly there's one area in which we have much agreement, and that is securing our borders. Clearly the American People don't have any confidence at all in the promises that this will be done when there's a track record of total failure. 1986 three million illegal aliens and today of course twelve million or more... 2006 -- The Secure Fence Act --- 700 miles of fencing to be built, only two miles have been built. And so my strong view is that it's not just promises, it's proof that people want. The American People want to see results, control of our borders. So we need to establish standards, metrics and show that they have been achieved.
    Senator McCain agrees. "We have to agree on certain criteria on what is successful securing of our border..."
    So does the RAND Corporation. "Strategic planning is necessary if DHS is to meet its responsibilities effectively and efficiently. As part of that planning, DHS leadership must define concrete and sensible objectives and measures of success."
    Richard Stana of the GAO said, "One of the key elements in improving border security is having a reliable measure of how you assess that."
    After all of these years, the Department of Homeland Security has yet to define border security in a way that can be measured. Wouldn't it be a good idea to do this before we start talking about amnesty?

GOP confronts 'angry white guy' problem by rethinking immigration amnesty
The sudden embrace by high-profile Republicans of immigration reform, including (shockingly) the potential for amnesty for more than 10 million illegal [aliens] living in the shadows of US society, hints at concerns so deep that Republicans may be willing to risk an ideological civil war that could split the party. -- Suggestions by top Republicans, including House Speaker John Boehner, that the GOP should not cede...

California plans to drop warrants for some parole violators    
State corrections officials are poised to drop the arrest warrants of thousands of parole violators, releasing them from state supervision at a time when their detention would complicate efforts to ease crowding in state and county lockups. -- The Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation intends to begin a massive review next week of more than 9,200 outstanding warrants, starting with individuals who were convicted of...

Heather MacDonald -- National Review     
Why Hispanics don't vote for Republicans   
The call for Republicans to discard their opposition to immigration amnesty will grow deafening in the wake of President Obama's victory. Hispanics supported Obama by a margin of nearly 75 percent to 25 percent, and may have provided important margins in some swing states. If only Republicans relented on their Neanderthal views regarding the immigration rule of law, the message will run, they would release the inner Republican...

Sean Trende -- Real Clear Politics     
The case of the missing white voters   
One of the more intriguing narratives for election 2012 was proposed by political scientist Brendan Nyhan fairly early on: that it was "Bizarro 2004." The parallels to that year certainly were eerie: An incumbent adored by his base but with middling approval ratings nationally faces off against an uncharismatic, wishy-washy official from Massachusetts. The race is tight during the summer until the president breaks open...
