Video: ND House Majority Leader Supports Suing Feds Over Refugee Resettlement

Earlier this month the Tennessee State Assembly voted to approve a lawsuit against the federal government over refugee resettlement. The state, which like North Dakota has withdrawn from refugee resettlement under the Wilson-Fish Act, is now challenging the right of the federal government to settle refugees within its borders based on the 10th amendment.

The breastfeeding

Cringeworthy Video: Center For Immigration Studies Destroys Its Credibility

Over the last week or so (see here and here) I’ve been working to clear up a massive amount of confusion created by the Center for Immigration Studies, an anti-illegal immigration group, when they tagged North Dakota as a “sanctuary state” which doesn’t cooperate with federal detainers for illegal immigrants. CIS has claimed that North

On Television: Did We Just Give The Confederate Flag A Power-Up?

We discussed two hot topics last night during my regular segment with Chris Berg on Valley News Live’s 6:30 Point of View program. First was my story about the USDA’s Summer Food Service Program which is intended to feed low-income children but is, thanks to a loophole, providing food for just about everybody. A lot
