Last week, Rep. Henry Cuellar, a Texas Democrat, lashed out at President Obama over the border crisis. Since last fall, more than 40,000 unaccompanied minors, mostly from Central America, have been caught illegally trying to enter the country. Cuellar called Obama’s response “aloof,” “bizarre,” and “detached.” He might have added “predictable.”
The monopartisan president. Jun 16, 2014, Vol. 19, No. 38 • By FRED BARNES
"My goal was to get something done,” President Obama said at a Chicago fundraiser in May. Yet he’s pursuing a strategy that makes it nearly impossible to achieve that. He’s not acting in his own interest.
The president refuses to deal with Republicans in Congress. He claims they’re committed, above all else, to obstructing his entire agenda. So he’s boycotting them, except on rare occasions when he summons Democratic and Republican leaders together to the White House for a formal meeting. That hasn’t occurred since April 3.

Dave Brat, a college professor challenging House majority leader Eric Cantor in next week's Republican primary in Virginia, has a 60-second ad touting his conservative credentials.
"I will fight to defund and repeal Obamacare. I will fight to stop the reckless spending in Washington. I will fight to stop amnesty for illegal immigrants," says Brat, matter-of-factly. "Eric Cantor voted to fund Obamcare. He voted to give President Obama a clean debt ceiling increase in this past January, and he is pushing for amnesty for illegal immigrants." Watch the ad below:

The debate in Australia over who gets in.Sep 9, 2013, Vol. 19, No. 01 • By FRED BARNES
A century ago, Australia used a “dictation test” to keep non-whites and selected others from entering the country. It required an immigrant to write 50 words in any language chosen by the customs official who administered the test. The most notorious example occurred in 1934, when a Czech immigrant was told to write a passage in Scottish Gaelic. The test was abolished in 1958.
Republicans, Democrats, and illegal immigrants.Aug 12, 2013, Vol. 18, No. 45 • By PETER SKERRY
These days, the precocious teenage political junkie who lives across the street from me understands that the notorious intransigence and truculence of House Republicans can be explained in great part by their ingeniously gerry-mandered, extremely homogeneous congressional districts. Yet in the past couple of weeks, it has been Democrats who have dug in their heels, as Republican stalwarts have begun to budge on one of the most contentious issues currently facing America: immigration reform.
