How many thousands of lives would be saved if we enforced our immigration laws, our guns laws, and our drug laws? Public safety is not being held hostage by the 'gun lobby,' but by the open borders lobby and the anti-law enforcement lobby.

It is clear that IDEA '97 not only undermines the educational process, it also undermines the authority of educators.

I worry that we risk losing the hard-won gains that have made America a safer and more prosperous place.

In America, the Supreme Court and the American people believe no one is above the law.

I think we have a high responsibility to base any criticisms that we have on a fair and honest statement of the facts, and that nominees should not be subjected to distortions of their record, taking things they've done out of context.

It is not legitimate that an American citizen feels that they are more likely to be arrested or held to account or stopped and searched than someone else simply because of the color of their skin.

I was the youngest of about nine boys in the neighborhood, and we played ball all the time, and I looked up to them, and they let me play around with them, and we just had a good time.

I'm often loose with my tongue. I may have said something about the NAACP being un-American or Communist, but I meant no harm by it.

The caricature of me in 1986 was not correct. I do not harbor the kind of animosity and race-based discrimination ideas that I was accused of. I did not.

The proven method for saving the lives of innocent Americans is not disarming them. The proven method for saving the lives of innocent Americans is to arrest, prosecute, convict and jail criminal offenders, especially armed career criminals illegally using guns.

The United States has the burden to lead for peace. And not just peace - we need peace with justice, a much harder goal.
