Facebook Follow @washtimes Should Congress make English the official language of the U.S.? View results The Monitor of McAllen. July 21, 2014. Is Gov. Perry playing politics or being earnest about public safety? We are certain Gov. Rick Perry did not take lightly the enormous responsibility as the state’s commander-in-chief when deciding to deploy the Texas National Guard to the border region to support the Texas Department of Public Safety, which itself is helping an overwhelmed U.S. Border Patrol secure our international border with Mexico. So we commend him on taking decisive action. But we withhold judgment on the wisdom of his action until we have more information. What is readily...

Suspension comes weeks after journalists from the now-defunct NoTW were jailed for phone-hacking Mazher Mahmood, a British journalist known for his undercover work posing as a “fake sheikh”, was suspended by Rupert Murdoch’s Sun newspaper on Monday after the collapse of a celebrity trial in which he was a main witness. His suspension comes just weeks after the editor and senior journalists from a now-defunct Murdoch tabloid were jailed for their part in a phone-hacking scandal which led to demands for action over the “dark arts” of Britain’s aggressive tabloid press. Mr Mahmood, well-known for revealing wrongdoing amongst politicians, celebrities and even royalty, had given evidence in the trial of Tulisa Contostavlos, a former judge on the British version of the X Factor TV talent show. She had denied being involved in the supply of drugs to Mr Mahmood while he posed as a film producer, but her trial collapsed on Monday, with the judge saying he suspected the reporter had lied to the court. “The Sun, of course, takes the judge’s remarks very seriously. Mr Mahmood has been suspended pending an immediate internal investigation,” a spokesman for the newspaper said. Mr Mahmood previously worked for Murdoch’s News of the World tabloid which the media mogul was forced to shut in 2011 when it was disclosed journalists had hacked voicemails on mobile phones of thousands of people, including that belonging to a murdered schoolgirl, to find exclusive stories. That led to a public inquiry into press ethics and demands for reform. Earlier this month, the paper’s former editor Andy Coulson and two other senior journalists were jailed for the hacking scandal following an eight month trial. Rebekah Brooks, who later ran Mr Murdoch’s British newspaper arm now called News UK, was acquitted of involvement, often cited Mr Mahmood’s work as examples of good investigative journalism.

On New Year's Day, construction worker Victor Spiresau was greeted by politicians, reporters and photographers at Luton Airport - the first Romanian immigrant to arrive in Britain after the controversial lifting of employment controls on Romania and Bulgaria. Victor became the reluctant symbol of what many predicted would be a vast wave of East Europeans flocking to the UK. MPs and newspapers warned of a "flood" of hundreds of thousands of poor Romanians and Bulgarians who would strain our welfare system and public services. It was an argument that played directly into anxieties about immigration and the influence of the EU. But today's figures, the first official...
