Photographer Focuses on Border Fence
“Ski lifts in the height of summer, a concrete zoo habitat with a smattering of plants: It is disquieting when human constructions clash with nature. Nature does not have intentions. The manmade does, and it can’t hide them,” says Citylab.com.
“The Spanish photographer Ignacio Evangelista has made a career out of framing these unsettling contrasts. In the past few years, he’s aimed his camera at the artifice of national borders. ‘After Schengen,’ featured on CityLab in 2014, captured nature’s takeover of European border checkpoints following their abandonment after the 1995 Schengen treaty.”
AILA Members Demand Munoz Drop as Convention Speaker
“More than a dozen members of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) are demanding that White House official Cecilia Muñoz be dropped as the keynote speaker for the group’s annual conference next week. They claim Muñoz, who is the White House Domestic Policy Council Director, represents an administration whose policies have been hostile and harmful to immigrants,” Fox News Latino writes.
Tancredo Says Coulter Book Will Shake Up GOP
“As Republican presidential debates and primaries approach, we can expect almost all candidates to sound tough on illegal immigration, regardless of their record or actual beliefs. This tough talk usually begins and ends with lofty rhetoric about how Republicans support legal immigration, just not illegal immigration,” says Tom Tancredo.
“But the 2016 candidates have a surprise in store, thanks to Ann Coulter’s new book, Adios, America! The Left’s Plan to Turn Our Country into a Third World Hellhole. Coulter forcefully dismantles both left wing clichés and Republican bromides.’
Hungary Ready to Build Border Fence to Stop Illegal Immigration
“Hungary’s prime minister on Friday said his government will consider building a physical barrier on the nation’s southern border as part of his quest to stop illegal immigrants from entering the European Union. Hungary shares its border in the south with non-EU member Serbia, where most illegal immigrants cross, and members Croatia and Romania,” the Wall Street Journal writes.
DC Murders Linked to Immigration Policy
“Needless to say, Darron Wint will never receive the punishment he deserves. But here’s the point: he never should have been in this country in the first place. He immigrated from Guyana in 2000, at age 20. His arrival here was legal, apparently because he was related to others from Guyana who were already in the U.S. So he was a “legal permanent resident.” But a permanent resident doesn’t get to stay forever; that designation merely means that there is no legal end point to the person’s stay at the time when he arrives,” says John Hinderaker at Powerline.
