Obama Policies Favor Illegal Immigrants Over American Citizens | Commentary

We have immigration laws in this country for two basic reasons: to preserve American jobs and to protect national security. President Barack Obama’s unlawful executive actions to grant amnesty to at least 5 million illegal immigrants violate both of those principles. Any objective review must find that the president’s policies have placed the concerns of those who have broken our laws ahead of the interests of citizens and legal residents of the United States.

The Wire Act — Don't Fix What Isn't Broken | Commentary

The House Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security and Investigations will hold a hearing soon on the Restoration of America’s Wire Act introduced by Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah.

No Iran Nuclear Treaty Without Congressional Action | Commentary

Iran is on course to develop nuclear weapons. Few foreign policy challenges pose a greater threat to the security of the United States and our allies. To permanently and verifiably prevent Iranian nuclear weapons, America must be united and resolute. History and common sense indicate this is more likely if congressional approval is required of any final agreement negotiated by the president.
