Trump Risks Debasing American Citizenship

Angelo Codevilla, American Greatness

The sine qua non of transcending the sad state of America’s immigration politics is the revival of discourse over the nobility of citizenship in this great republic. The United States of America is the best of great nations and the greatest of good nations. To have any power over its life is the greatest of responsibilities. Those we elect as stewards of American citizenship must treat it as a sacred trust, and pass it on as such.

No, Trump’s immigration plan isn’t ‘un-American’

Rich Lowry, New York Post

Critics are right to sense something different in President Trump. He is going to put much more emphasis on the integrity of our borders and less on humanitarian considerations than his predecessors. This is a direct challenge to the lazy cosmopolitanism that assumes the only correct answer in immigration policy is always “more” and never “less.”
