I owe the Indian nations and most of the United States an apology, because I’ve become a Texan.
Occasionally I receive messages from readers who take issue with some of the things I write about. Sometimes they are people with no indigenous ancestry who are offended by what they see as a divisive, race-based ideology.
Last week, President Obama went out on a political limb with his executive order allowing an estimated 5 million undocumented immigrants to remain in the United States.
On the heels of an electoral drubbing, the President and Republican leaders of the new Congress remain at odds over immigration. The Republican meme of ‘securing the border’ is beginning to skip like a scratched record.
In the coming weeks and months, Congress will continue its debate in an effort to find a way forward to reform America’s broken immigration system. Much of this debate will center on border security, employment, and strengthening the process for individuals to earn U.S. citizenship.
