Showdown on the Southern Border | The Roundtable Ep. 204

The New York Times has anointed the Claremont Institute and its fellows as leaders in the fight against DEI. They think this makes Claremont a sinister cabal, of course, but the editors are happy to accept it as a compliment and take a victory lap. And, in a major plot twist, even the Times‘s readers seem to be on our side–sort of. Meanwhile, Texas Governor Greg Abbott is facing down Biden’s federal government and instructing state officials to enforce border laws, even in the face of a Supreme Court defeat. Is this a constitutional crisis in the making? Plus: Donald Trump scooped up another healthy primary win in New Hampshire. The gang’s all here to break it down–before reminding you to read the damn site, of course.

The American Mind presents a range of perspectives. Views are writers’ own and do not necessarily represent those of The Claremont Institute.

The American Mind is a publication of the Claremont Institute, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, dedicated to restoring the principles of the American Founding to their rightful, preeminent authority in our national life.
