Even affluent Montgomery County, Maryland (median household income $94,965) may feel the strain of meeting educational and other needs of the illegal immigrant children being sent from the Texas border to communities around the country.

It's common knowledge that some of the illegal migrant children who have come over the Texas border have been placed in foster homes, in Texas and other states. But many Americans might be surprised to learn that some of these "children" are 22 years old.

The House Republicans' border bill has come under fire—from Republicans.

Gov. Bill Haslam of Tennessee protested in a letter to President Obama that no one in his state government had received notice that 760 of the estimated 50,000 unaccompanied minors who have entered the country illegally in the past several months have been sent to the Volunteer State.

Whether the impeachment of President Obama is "on the table," "off the table" or under the table is a matter hotly disputed these days by Democrats and Republicans as each side jockeys for position on the volatile issue of illegal immigration between now and the fall elections. Ironically, say the Republicans, it is the Democrats who are talking up impeachment.

Congress and the American people "will not stand" for altering or suspending the nation's immigration law by executive action, Senator Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) said in a Senate speech Monday.

President Obama is planning "very significant" executive action on immigration by summer's end, according to a senior White House official.

President Obama returned to his theme of "economic patriotism" last week, invoking the phrase "corporate deserters."

The editorial board of the New York Times, which generally favors the imposition of "liberal" or "progressive" reforms at the national level, has come out in favor of states' rights on the legalization of marijuana.
