David Bier. President Trump’s to undo U.S. asylum law bans. asylum to immigrants who cross through any other country before. entering the United States. As of Tuesday, only immigrants who have. officially lost their asylum bids in another country or have been. victims of “severe” human trafficking can apply for. asylum in the United States if they have traveled through any other. country. The rule will likely prevent the vast majority of asylum claims. Regardless of its legality, the rule is bad policy. If it is. implemented as the president envisions, it will create worse. problems than the ones that already exist. The main problem that the rule is supposed to address is the. large number of people entering the country illegally along the. southwest

Simon Lester. If you were a U.S. trade negotiator in the 1950s or 1960s, you. might be a little shocked by the aggressive trade rhetoric thrown. around today. China is an existential threat? Our European allies. are almost as bad? What exactly went wrong with U.S. leadership of. a rules-based trading system? What exactly went wrong. with U.S. leadership of a rules-based trading system? In truth, the state of American trade policy has been precarious. for a while now, and for understandable reasons: the industrial. development of a sizeable portion of the developing world; the. expansion of trade rules beyond traditional issues of. protectionism; and a more powerful international judicial system. with “teeth” that can have an impact on U.S. policies.

Ted Galen Carpenter. It was just a matter of time until the surging economic. capabilities of the People’s Republic of China would translate into. more serious military capabilities. After more than two decades of. annual (usually double-digit) boosts in defense spending, that time. has arrived. China’s new clout is especially evident with the. deployment of a equipped with an array of. sophisticated weapons systems. Beijing’s policies in the South. China Sea, the Taiwan Strait, and to some extent throughout the. Western Pacific, are exhibiting greater assertiveness to match. its’s rising military clout. That posture is leading to mounting. tensions with the United States and Washington’s East Asian allies. It will be an important challenge for both s.

Mustafa Akyol. On the night of July 15, 2016, millions of Turks (myself. included) found themselves in the middle of a sort of drama - one. they thought they had left behind in the past century: a military. coup. Around 10 p.m. local time, a faction within the armed forces. began arresting top commanders, taking over strategic positions. such as the Bosporus Bridge and the Istanbul Ataturk airport. Soon. they forced the state TV, TRT, to read a declaration that the. “Peace at Home Council” had taken control of the state. Around midnight, one could have thought that a military coup had. really happened and the government of then-Prime Minister Tayyip. Erdogan was gone. However, in just a few hours, the coup attempt was overturned. Other factions of th.

Ilya Somin. This is what the battle over federalism looked like in the. United States for many decades: Conservatives sought to limit. federal power over state and local governments, and liberals tried. to expand it. The partisan division often shaped policy: Liberals championed. national environmental rules (restricting even activities with. purely local effects), the creation of new federal crimes (such as. under the Gun-Free School Zones Act) and the steady expansion of. civil rights laws, and the right pushed back, arguing that states. deserved more autonomy in these areas.

Ryan Bourne. Boris Johnson has been talked up as Britain’s first likely. pro-freedom prime minister since. Margaret Thatcher . He burnished those credentials further in. this week’s TV debate, “peddling optimism” by. making the case “with renewed power and conviction” for. “a dynamic market economy”. Let us consider a specific litmus test of whether Boris will. live up to his pro-market promise. A crystal-clear examination of whether he will take us off. “the hamster wheel of doom” associated with excessive. regulatory precaution, or rather embrace the permissionless. innovation, risk-taking, and proportionate regulatory reaction. associated with free-market credentials: will Boris give the. green-light to electric rental scooters in the UK? Across US

Doug Bandow. For the seventh time now, I am spending a week in July at a. Chinese university with several other Americans to speak about. economics to Chinese students. And every visit, I learn more about. the growing communist giant across the Pacific. However, these experiences have gotten more difficult as. Washington and Beijing clash over issues large and small. More. important, though, has been the internal crackdown in the People’s. Republic of China. My first trip to the PRC was in 1992: it was a. vastly different country, one finally exiting the Maoist era’s. intermittent lunacy. In the succeeding years, there was increasing. liberalization — most obviously in economic policy, but also. in terms of personal autonomy. The Tiananmen Square mass.

Ilya Shapiro and Randal John Meyer. The Supreme Court’s recent ruling in the. alcohol-regulation case Tennessee Wine & Spirits Retailers. Association v. Thomas corrects an 80-year-old jurisprudential. error that raised the price of alcohol for generations. A. misunderstanding of the 21st Amendment, which repealed Prohibition. while granting states power to regulate the “transportation. or importation” of alcohol, had allowed protectionist state. laws to interfere with interstate commerce. In striking down. Tennessee’s in-state-residency requirements for retail liquor. licenses, the Court held that the Volunteer State can’t. discriminate against outsiders willing to set up shop within its. borders. Business licenses have nothing to do with whether a sta.

Russell Rhine. Tuition-free college is the Democratic Party’s. flavor-of-the-month plan to increase educational affordability and. access. At the first Democratic presidential debate, Sen. Elizabeth. Warren called for tuition-free public college and the. cancellation of up to $50,000 in existing debt. And, not to be. outdone, Sen. Bernie Sanders proposed free public colleges, universities, and trade schools as. well as the forgiveness of all $1.6 trillion in outstanding student loan debt. All this “free” education is funded by taxpayers,. and not just the rich ones. In reality, Sanders’ tax on. “Wall Street speculators,” meant to pay for his. proposals, is a tax on all Americans. It will divert trillions of. dollars from savers and investors to the go.

Doug Bandow. The Islamic State’s attempt to set up a Middle East. caliphate has failed spectacularly. The group never had much of a. chance, since it has targeted virtually every government in the. region. But most of the Arab states were vulnerable internally and. dependent on the U.S. for their security. Now ISIS appears to be. morphing into a more conventional terrorist organization. A. caliphate repeat appears unlikely. The catastrophic impact of what Arab states called Daesh,. however, lives on. The movement killed freely, including Muslims it. judged to be insufficiently radical and ruthless. But Christians. and other religious minorities, such as Yazidis, suffered most. grievously. The Assyrian Confederation of Europe has published a. depressing.

Ted Galen Carpenter. Trump administration officials were enthusiastic when Ecuador. decided to expel Julian Assange from its embassy in London, where. he had received sanctuary for nearly seven years. British. authorities promptly jailed him for jumping bail on sexual assault. charges in Sweden, and U.S. officials began plans to have Assange. extradited to face espionage charges in this country. He just. turned 48 in prison on July 3. Last month, the Department of Justice added 17 counts to the. one-count indictment that it had filed years earlier. His current. imprisonment in Britain and the probability of a lengthy. extradition battle have delayed the prospect of a high-profile. trial in the United States, but that outcome remains. Washington’s goal.

Daniel J. Ikenson. Last weekend in Osaka, the U.S. and Chinese presidents agreed to. resume bilateral talks to resolve the yearlong trade war. That. decision was conditioned upon Xi Jinping’s agreeing to. increase purchases of U.S. agricultural products and Donald. Trump’s agreeing to defer any new tariffs on Chinese. products. It also required Trump to relax the restrictions his. administration imposed in May on U.S. companies transacting with. Huawei Technologies. The Huawei concession isn’t sitting well with the likes of. Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Chuck Schumer (D-NY). They and. other China hawks in Congress believe Huawei presents an. intolerable risk to national security and are vowing to find a. legislative solution that takes decisions abo.

Doug Bandow. BEIJING — Hanging out in China for a couple weeks is an. experience. Beijing feels a lot like a Western city: tall. buildings, horrid traffic, distinct neighborhoods, lots of money. You come across the full range of people—funny, friendly,. officious, nervous, helpful, distant, welcoming, interesting. Yet the political and cultural differences are also real: forced. respect for political leaders (maybe everyone really loves. President Xi Jinping, but, really, EVERYONE?); rigid hierarchy (for. a conference opening ceremony and dinner, we. “distinguished” visitors lined up like the Soviet. politburo and went to our assigned seats); deference to age (I hate. to admit it, but this one is an advantage now!). There have been a lot of unofficia.

Tanja Porčnik. While all of the former socialist economies. have liberalised and strengthened their markets over the past two. decades , they have failed to strengthen the rule of law (see. Table 1). Under socialism, legal systems are not designed to. protect the rights of individuals. Instead, they serve the. interests of the political elite. To that end, judges, prosecutors,. and other judicial officials are trained and expected to cater to. those interests. Most worrisome, some of the former socialist. economies have even seen the weakening of the rule of law in the. last few years. In mid-June, hundreds of. thousands of Czechs took to the streets of Prague calling for. the resignation of Prime Minister Andrej Babiš in light of. both a criminal inves.

Corey A. DeAngelis. Schools are expected to prepare children to become good. citizens. They can help achieve this goal by producing a. well-educated populace and promoting strong character. But not all. school systems equally contribute to the public good. Indeed, the. evidence shows school choice does more to cut crime than. residentially-assigned public schools. Here are the facts. Yet another study just came out revealing the. crime-reducing benefits of school choice. Researchers found that. entering a charter school in North Carolina in 9th grade reduced. the rate at which students were convicted of felonies by 36% and. the rate at which they were convicted of misdemeanors as adults by. 38%, compared to their peers in traditional public schools.

Mustafa Akyol. It’s been one week since Ekrem Imamoglu was voted into. office as mayor of Istanbul in an election rerun, and the. significance of his landslide victory is more profound than has. been widely understood. The lead candidate of the opposition. Republican People’s Party (CHP) has given hope not only to. the hundreds of thousands of Istanbulites who flooded the streets. with fanfare and joy and the millions of other Turks, including. myself, watching from afar. Imamoglu’s victory also offers. the outlines of a cure for other countries suffering from the same. political toxin that has been eating Turkish democracy from within:. populism. In his book What is Populism? , the political scientist. Jan-Werner Müller has a simple but helpful defini.

Trevor Burrus. Last week, the Supreme Court took a major step toward rolling. back one of the most unconstitutional features of our federal. government: the over-delegation of lawmaking power to the executive. branch and administrative agencies. In Gundy v. United. States , the Court took a relatively obscure case filed by a. public defender—one with no support from amicus briefs or. popular commentary—and revisited the nondelegation doctrine,. a crucial but largely forgotten part of our Constitution. And while. we can’t know for sure, this turn of events was likely due to. the actions of Justice Neil Gorsuch. In his second term, Gorsuch is again showing how a principled. commitment to the Constitution can help reshape the Court into a. more nonpartisa.
