States’ immigration laws work

In the opinion article that I wrote for USA Today I note that states are in the front line in the nation’s immigration enforcement effort. States must provide essential services for their citizens while coping with withering criminal justice costs. The states’ enforcement efforts should be supported and applauded by Washington, and instead of fighting states that implement local enforcement strategies, the executive branch should be emulating those strategies. Check out my full opinion article here.

    When is California going to get the message over illegal immigration? We’re being swamped by hispanics and illegal gang activity! Stockton has reduced its police positions by 100 officers and now,every night,there’s a drive-by shooting or murder somewhere in this city.Reports say hispanic gangs have almost taken over the streets. Diane Feinstein needs to get her head out of her butt! Who can make her do that?
