The South American country of Ecuador can be described as many things: a tourist mecca for its Galapagos Islands, the country that harbored WikiLeaks founder and fugitive Julian Assange in its London embassy for seven years, and soul-keeper of the vanquished Inca civilization. But an important battleground in America’s war over illegal immigration to the U.S. southern border? The answer …

I will never forget the first time I realize that Barack Obama was clueless about the Middle East. I was traveling in the US during the 2008 campaign.
