Much of what religious workers do is important work, including working for charities that assist those in need. So instead of seeking to abolish this religious fast-track to getting a visa or citizenship, let's expand it for all workers willing to engage in two years of continuous charitable work.
There is at least one candidate who may support policies that will make it easier for people in developing countries to benefit from the knowledge the world has accumulated over many thousands of years. This can make a huge difference in their lives.
Handling Trump in Thursday's debate will be challenging, especially for Jeb Bush, who may have the most to lose if he performs poorly. Although it is very early in the campaign, first impressions can be important.
We live in fearful times. Many people seem to be afraid of almost everything--sharks, contaminated foods, polluted water, heat waves, droughts, flood...
In normal years, this would be the official kickoff to the political Silly Season.

The Department of Homeland Security was formed in the wake of the September 11, 2001 attacks. Accordingly, counter terrorism has always lain at the heart of the Department's mission. But in the years since, both the enemies the U.S. fights and the way we fight have changed dramatically.
