Column: Reforming immigration the right way
SAN DIEGO -- Gracias, Marco Rubio. Americans are being fed rosy scenarios about how quickly and easily Congress will pass immigration reform. They need a reality check, and the Florida senator delivered it. If someone had just started paying attention to the immigration debate over...

Column: Dancing a two-step on immigration
SAN DIEGO -- The Obama administration has spun so many yarns about its deportation policy that it can't keep them straight. In August 2011, White House officials announced that the Department of Homeland Security would no longer spend "limited resources" actively seeking to apprehend...

Column: Scholarships a "Dream" come true in California
SAN DIEGO -- When it comes to how California handles illegal immigrants, the state is all over the map. Not unlike the rest of the country, the Golden State can't decide whether it wants to make life comfortable for the undocumented or make them so unhappy that it runs them off. 'Twas...
