“Where is everyone?” I asked the two young women at the migrant shelter in Deming. The armory was full of neatly arrayed cots, but they were all empty. Other than a few occasional Brazilians, this superbly organized and staffed facility has been abandoned by the Customs and Border Patrol (CBP). In mid-May, the CBP simply dumped several hundred migrants there leaving their care in the hands of the residents of this small town of about 14,000. The response, however, was been extraordinary.

It’s tragic to hear the President complain about the need for more facilities and to know that the care in the federal facilities is awful when a superb program like Deming’s has been largely abandoned. more

“No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it’s not the same river and he’s not the same man.” So said Heraclitus, a Greek philosopher, 2500 years ago. In current, gender-neutral language: “You never step into the same river twice.” more
There are two documents of paramount importance to American history: The Declaration of Independence, which forged our national identity, and the United States Constitution, which set forth the framework for the federal government that is still in use today. While Independence Day is a beloved national holiday, fewer people know about Constitution Week, an annual commemoration of the living document that upholds and protects the freedoms central to our American way of life. This year, the annual celebration begins on Sept. 17. more

I was in Las Cruces for the 2006 Wirefly X Prize Cup and back at Holloman for the 2007 X Prize Lunar Lander Challenge. more
