Commentary and Opinions

By Rep. Ted Poe [Editor’s note: Rep. Ted Poe (R-TX), a member of the House Judiciary Committee, delivered the following remarks on the floor of the House on March 22, 2010.]    Once again, there's a new push for an amnesty bill to pass this Congress.

As several screeners investigated our turbans, the wasted time and resources made me uneasy.
By Jim Giermanski    In 2007, I wrote two articles on why 100 percent scanning was not doable. I laid out four fundamental reasons why 100 percent scanning would not work: its foreign acceptance, its limitation to seaports only, the non-existence of required technology, and the non-inclusion of land ports within the concept of critical infrastructure.Two years later, where are we?
