    BROWNSVILLE — A shootout on the Rio Grande between U.S. law enforcement officers and Mexican drug runners left at least three gang members wounded, the Department of Public Safety said Thursday. DPS spokeswoman Tela Mange said the gunfire broke out somewhere in Hidalgo County early Thursday. She said she could not be more specific for security reasons. She said she did not have information on whether any of the U.S. officials were wounded. She said the officers were participating in a multi-agency Texas Ranger Reconnaissance operation and were attempting to stop a large drug load. Officers arrived on the scene…

Alabama governor signs nation’s toughest immigration law

BIRMINGHAM, Ala (Reuters) – Republican Governor Robert Bentley on Thursday signed into law a crackdown on illegal immigration in Alabama that both supporters and critics consider the toughest in the nation.

Under the new measure, police must detain someone they suspect of being in the country illegally if the person cannot produce proper documentation when stopped for any reason.

It also will be a crime to knowingly transport or harbor someone who is in the country illegally. The law imposes penalties on businesses that knowingly employ someone without legal resident status. A company’s business license could be suspended or revoked.

The law requires Alabama businesses to use a database called E-Verify to confirm the immigration status of new employees.

“We have a real problem with illegal immigration in this country,” Bentley said after signing the law. “I campaigned for the toughest immigration laws and I’m proud of the Legislature for working tirelessly to create the strongest immigration bill in the country.”

Iran’s Nuclear Efforts Are Accelerating

Iran's improved Sejil 2 medium-range missile

Iran’s uranium enrichment program has increased its production rate by 17 percent in recent months and by 84 percent since 2009, according to a new study by the Nonproliferation Policy Education Center. Author Greg Jones projected that Iran could produce enough weapons-grade uranium to fuel a nuclear weapon in about 62 days if it chose to do so.

Jones based his estimate on data drawn from the May 24 report of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), which spelled out in greater detail than ever before the growing concerns that the U.N. nuclear agency harbors about Iran’s nuclear program and the fact that “Iran is not providing the necessary cooperation” to address these concerns.

DOJ, Diversity, and Low Expectations

    Because advocates who mask their motives promote skepticism about their cause, Planned Parenthood and its allies clearly have the most to lose even if the organization’s Indiana operations manage to keep $1.4 million in annual Medicaid support. At least supporters of the funding cut admit they’re driven by opposition to abortion. Planned Parenthood, on the other hand, insists it is challenging the state’s new funding ban simply to ensure continued medical care for thousands of poor women – not to protect its ability to “provide” abortions at taxpayer expense. The claim is, at best, a self-serving exaggeration. “Planned Parenthood makes…

    Rules that are designed to protect the openness of the Internet may not take effect until late this year because the Federal Communications Commission is continuing to review comments that raise concerns over broadband providers’ obligations to disclose certain information to consumers. The deadline for submitting the comments was on April 11, but public documents reflect that FCC officials have been meeting with representatives of the communications industry as recently as last week over specific disclosure requirements that the FCC imposed last December in an order that prohibits broadband providers from blocking lawful content or unreasonable discriminating on their networks….

  • The EPA’s New Move – Is the NAT GAS Act an EPA Trojan horse?

    The EPA’s New MoveIs the NAT GAS Act an EPA Trojan horse? The debate over the New Alternative Transportation to Give Americans Solutions Act of 2011, or NAT GAS Act, has focused mostly on the question of whether the federal government should use hefty subsidies — $64,000 per truck — to interfere with the free-market allocation of resources. On that point, a surprisingly large number of Republicans are siding with their central-planning-advocate colleagues on the other side of the aisle. But why are so many Democrats enamored with big corporate-welfare giveaways to the natural-gas industry in the first place? The…

    “Once a Marine, always a Marine” apparently doesn’t apply at a Pennsylvania high school where a 17-year-old graduate has been told she cannot wear her uniform when she receives her diploma. Lindsay Starr told KDKA-TV in Pittsburgh she wanted to wear her dress blues during Friday’s graduation ceremony at North Allegheny High School in Pittsburgh, but that school officials denied her request, citing the requirement of wearing only the traditional cap and gown. “I’m just trying to show pride in what I belong to now,” she told the station. “I belong to the United States Marine Corps as a 17-year-old….

His public statements reveal the degree of the debacle.On the 18th of March 2011, ABC News reported: President Obama told a bi-partisan group of members of Congress today that he expects the U.S. would be actively involved in any military action against Libya for “days, not weeks” after which he said the U.S. would take more of a supporting role. Later in the same week in Brazil per MSNBC: He portrayed the relatively limited U.S. role as a cost-saving measure…
