Lack of American commitment makes this a dangerous time

Aggressors are not sure whether Hillary Clinton, if elected, will commit to leading the Western alliance

Mexico’s elites support illegal immigration because it results in an estimated $25 billion sent back in remittances to Mexico each year. American elites have ways of navigating around the downsides of illegal immigration. They can avoid crowded schools and low-income neighborhoods, and they can easily pay the higher taxes that can result from illegal immigration.

The horrific bombings are inexplicable without examining the context in which they occurred.
