A Swedish far-right party demanding sharp cuts in immigration has more than doubled its support in a parliamentary election. Ironically, the surge for the far-right Sweden Democrats means the country's government itself is poised to shift to the left, since many of the Sweden Democrats' new voters defected from Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt's center-right coalition.

Editorial: Too many guards increase dangers on our border

Illegal immigration is a growing problem in the Rio Grande Valley, Texas officials say, but there's another growing problem: a confusing and potentially hazardous influx of multiple kinds of guards and agents and civilian militia members all charged up about protecting the border.

How a Republican Stays Afloat in a Hispanic-Majority Border District

Inside a local radio station near New Mexico's dusty eastern border, Steve Pearce needs just one take as he breezily speaks-in English-to his district's Hispanic community during a mock 15-minute radio "interview" for a paid campaign infomercial to be aired next month on Spanish-language stations. A conservative white lawmaker who is not fluent in Spanish, Pearce, 67, is seen nationally as a bit of a curiosity: A Republican who keeps getting reelected in this sprawling district that is more than half Hispanic and where Democrats have an 8-point edge in voter enrollment.

Analysis: Kobach at center of Kansas Senate drama

Ambrose: Compromise on immigration possible

President Barack Obama wanted to try out another experiment in unilateral government, was persuaded it would hurt Democrats in the coming election, and backed up.
