Who is policing the police?

We expect the police to obey the laws we hire them to enforce. Yet, every day, some violate these same laws, claiming the right to do so just because they are wearing a badge.

Birth of a changing America

The child was about to become a Mexican national. Yet, because of an illegal action by the child's mother, the child was born an American citizen. How did this happen? The child's mother illegally crossed the border from Mexico into the United States. She had her child on American soil. This woman waited at the boarder until she was ready to deliver and then crossed over. According to the Constitution, the child automatically becomes an American citizen.
