Here are seven ways President Obama and Congress can help ensure the safety and well-being of the women and children caught at the border, and make our immigration system fairer now and in the future.
No, this is not some Game of Thrones spinoff. Ladies and gentlemen, we give you the official 2014 platform of the Republican Party of Texas, 40 pages of unrestrained, right-wing bluster.

Ironically, wasting billions on a fence to protect us from people we employ in not only ludicrous, it makes a mockery of economic data.
Republicans really can't help themselves -- when they see an opportunity to irritate the Latino electorate, they go for it with gusto.

Republicans have been saying that the "war on women" Democrats accuse them of waging is a fake issue. Really? If it's not a war, it's one hell of a frontal assault. We'll see if women remember in November.
When Holder speaks out on race, the GOP attack machine instantly kicks into high gear with a barrage of denials and then another deft turn of the racial table. This means the usual finger point of Holder as a race baiter.

The GOP knows that crying, "Obama is cavalierly using his executive power to bypass Congress and legislate from the Oval Office!" will trigger a powerful public backlash and reinforce its usual charge against him of dictatorial abuse.
