I posted previously about how Rhode Island Republican Governor Donald Carcieri had issued an executive order requiring companies that did business with the state to use E-verify to verify the immigration status of employees, and also requiring the state police to cooperate with federal immigration authorities.

Now The Providence Journal reports that Linc Chafee,...

Gloria Allred is doing more to drive illegal immigrants underground and to target Latinos for racial profiling than anything the State of Arizona has even thought of doing.

Allred dropped a late-September surprise on Meg Whitman based on the allegation that Whitman did not do enough to verify the status of her...

Around the time of the ruling in U.S. v. Arizona, I received several e-mails and comments from readers wondering why the District Court had jurisdiction, in light of Article III, Section 2 of the Constitution (emphasis mine):

Looks like Republican opposition researchers finally are getting their act together in countering the Reid campaign machine, as they unearthed video of Harry Reid forcefully arguing against birthright citizenship for children of illegal aliens in 1993.

I posted extensively on Reid’s non-apology apology...

The result of the injunction granted today by the federal court in Arizona preventing the key provisions of S.B. 1070 from taking effect is not just the maintenance of the status quo.

At a legal level, it is true that nothing has changed. S.B. 1070 never took effect, so no law...

Based on reports of the hearing before the federal District Court Judge yesterday, it appears that the provision of the Arizona immigration law requiring law enforcement to verify immigration status is likely to survive, while other aspects creating independent state criminal sanctions will not.

There has been quite a buzz regarding the failure of the Obama administration to challenge a 2008 Rhode Island Executive Order which accomplished much of what Arizona seeks to accomplish through S.B. 1070.

The signing statement of the Governor, as well as the Order itself, set forth the grounds for the immigration...
