The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) opened a new toll road recently. The highway has been in existence since 1982, but the toll gantries are new. Rush hour tolling, between 5:30 and 9:30 a.m., is a test of how badly you want to reach The Swamp.

The Muslim ban persists, but why?

On Monday, the Supreme Court of the United States granted the Trump Administration's wish to fully implement the "travel ban" while challenges to the policy work their way through lower courts. This is the third iteration of the president's efforts to prohibit anyone from six specifically listed countries - most of which happen to have Muslim-majority populations - from visiting the United States.

‘Help me, Dad’

Days after the cruel, unjust not guilty verdict in the Kate Steinle trial, Americans are still raging over the decision. Regardless of people's opinions about immigration, Jose Ines Garcia Zarate's acquittal on murder charges is a travesty, and adds to the already immeasurable pain the Steinle family and other families have suffered as a result of crimes committed by illegal aliens. Even the ultra-illegal immigrant advocate San Francisco Chronicle editorialized that the verdict did not serve justice.

An Immigration and Customs Enforcement raid at Chicago's Cloverhill Bakery that netted 800 illegal alien employees can be looked at two ways. First, management at the bakery, which makes McDonald's Corp. hamburger buns and baked goods for other fast-food chains, claims the ICE action put the company in turmoil, "presenting a lot of challenges, as you can imagine," said Chief Executive Officer Kevin Toland. But, the second and encouraging perspective from unemployed Americans is that ICE has suddenly created 800 job opportunities.
