Former Virginia Attorney General, constitutional conservative, and current Senate Conservatives Fund President Ken Cuccinelli shares his constitutional viewpoint of Gov. Rick Perry’s plans to deploy the Texas National Guard to the Rio Grand Valley section of the Texas-Mexico border.

Much as we like Governor Perry’s plan to deploy the Texas National Guard to the Rio Grande valley that, by itself, won’t stem the flow of illegal aliens crossing the border.

In Grand Prix, James Garner's flawed hero Pete Aron and his fellow drivers put it all on the line to win – second doesn’t matter.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry told President Obama and the House Committee on Homeland Security that the border between the U.S. and Mexico is less secure today than at any time in the recent past. Now he's deploying 1,000 Texas National Guardsmen to the Rio Grande Valley because the federal government has failed to adequately secure the border.

At a news conference scheduled for today Texas Gov. Rick Perry is expected to announce he will activate the Texas National Guard claims state Sen. Juan “Chuy” Hinojosa, D-McAllen.

The way we see it, the weekend’s anti-illegal immigration protests took the illegal immigration issue off the border and put congressional Republicans on notice that this is not only a problem on the border – it is a problem for them at the polls this November.

It is neither moral nor compassionate to force the American public to borrow another three point seven billion dollars from China to pay for a border bailout.

Rep. Bob Goodlatte of Virginia reports that an internal Department of Homeland Security report shows that at least 70% of asylum cases contain proven or possible fraud and that begs the question: What will Chairman Goodlatte and his Republican colleagues do about it?

Eric Cantor's defeat is a useful reminder that even the political class is ultimately accountable to the people, but only by sharing that message widely do we have any chance of rolling back the rampant political privilege and cronyism which dominates Washington today.

If there's a tech-worker shortage why did Microsoft just announce that it will eliminate up to 18,000 jobs over the next year? About 12,500 professional and factory jobs will be cut starting with 1,351 jobs in the Seattle area, yet current law will allow about 1 million legal immigrants and 700,000 guest workers to enter the country each year.

When immigration judges constantly postpone determinations and give so-called asylum seekers as many as three years to come back you know giving Obama the power to appoint more immigration judges will not stop the invasion of our southern border.

Democratic Governors O’Malley, Malloy, Hickenlooper and Markell have already been caught out as hypocrites on Obama's plan to settle illegal aliens in their states. It is time to put the heat on the rest of the Democratic Governors who pander to race-baiting Hispanic organizations, like La Raza, and then run for cover when the bill for their open borders policies lands on the doorstep of taxpayers in their states.
