Watchdog - Southern border crisis relocates to small town  

Southern border immigration crisis comes to tiny Michigan town

 

The immigration crisis on the southern border, involving tens of thousands of minors from El Salvador, Honduras,and Guatemala, has become a concern for Michiganders who live in a rural community with fewer than 3,000 people.

Wolverine Human Services, a social services agency that typically helps needy Michigan children, is in the process of securing a contract and negotiating with the Office of Refugee Resettlement to bring between 60-120 male illegal immigrants, between the ages of 12-17, to the small city of Vassar without any input from residents of the community.

 

What impact will this have for MI residents?

Amash amendment still needed to stop NSA collection of U.S. communications
When it was thought that the National Security Agency was merely collecting the metadata of communications of Americans without suspicion, the program was nearly defeated in the House of Representatives. Now, we know it includes the content of those communications.

Cartoon: Messiah-Mess

Yes, the left hates America
The left hates America.  That's why they want to fundamentally transform it. 

Greenberg: Maybe it wasn't the weather, after all?
"With the weather throughout the country actually good, retailers that underperformed had to find something else to blame."

Inside look at the Franklin Center Fellowship  

An inside look at the Franklin Center Blogger Fellowship

Last April, the Franklin Center launched its inaugural Blogger Fellowship initiative with fellows Ben Howe and Amelia Hamilton. They are now halfway through a six-month program of writing about government inefficiency, education reform, and other pressing issues of the day. With assistance from the Franklin Center, Howe and Hamilton have been working to promote their work through new media tools like YouTube, Twitter, and Google Hangouts, as well as through more traditional channels like podcasts, radio, or TV interviews.

Learn more about the fellowship here.

A Note From Our President

Dear Reader,

Here at the Franklin Center, there's nothing conventional about the ways we change the world. We believe that unconventional channels like on-the-ground reporting and citizen journalism have the power to influence establishment institutions and reshape our country's narrative for the better. Our freedoms, after all, are protected by the people, not our politicians.

That's why we started a blogger fellowship program. Our fellows Ben Howe and Amelia Hamilton are movers and shakers for the cause of liberty in the digital age. They've produced documentaries exposing cronyism, written books about the American Revolution, and challenged traditional media. We're proud to call them Franklin fellows, and I can't wait to see what else they're capable of - especially with an extra push from supporters like you.

Best regards,

Jason Stverak
President, Franklin Center for Government & Public Integrity
