| On immigration, there are a lot of hurdles before anything arrives at the White House.
| Is it unreasonable to have proof of citizenship when entering another country?
| Journalists are accused of being lapdogs when they don't ask the hard questions, but then accused of being rude when they do. Good thing we have tough hides.
