The firebrand freshman Democrat said she believes that “injustice is a threat to the safety of all people,” during a discussion on the “Ebro in the Morning” radio show.

Arizona sheriff says his county pays for cartel traffickers’ hospital bills

“Let’s say I arrest a guy who had a backpack of marijuana, but then he’s sick because of this 70-mile trek across the desert – if I have to take him to the hospital while he’s in my custody, my county pays for that. If Americans just knew about the toll that it took financially on the taxpayer, they would lose their minds, they would be climbing from the rooftops for Congress to do something and declare the cartels terrorists. And it is such a burden on us.”

Kobach: It’s time to fully deploy rapid DNA testing at the border

There’s no downside to expanding the rapid-DNA program to every sector of the southern border. The only issue is cost; but with tests costing less than $100 each, it’s a bargain. If the illegal aliens stay in the country, they’re going to cost American taxpayers a lot more. An illegal-alien-headed household consumes, on average, $14,400 more in public benefits per year than it contributes in taxes.

Judicial tyranny: Federal judge upholds New Jersey limit on gun ammunition

A federal judge on Monday upheld New Jersey’s law that lowers the number of bullets a gun can hold, dismissing a lawsuit filed by a gun rights group. New Jersey passed a law last year that made it unlawful to possess firearm magazines holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition, with some exceptions. The state has said that’s enough for self-defense and that anything more could prove dangerous to bystanders. A 15-round limit had been in place since 1990.
