  • Washington Post: How anti-immigrant attitudes are fueling support for Donald Trump

    Washington Post ^ | 11/25/2015 | By Michael Tesler
    Political commentators have asserted for months that Donald Trump’s dominance of the Republican presidential field is fueled by his anti-immigrant rhetoric. As Thomas Edsall put it: Donald Trump's success is no surprise. The public and the press have focused on his defiant rejection of mannerly rhetoric, his putting into words of what others think privately. But the more important truth is that a half-century of Republican policies on race and immigration have made the party the home of an often angry and resentful white constituency -- a constituency that is now politically mobilized in the face of demographic upheaval. This...

Limbaugh explained, that “compared to Reagan, Trump is not a conservative, and the bulk of Trump’s support is not the Republican base.” “As we mentioned yesterday, if you look at the demographics, at least as expressed polling data, the bulk of Trump support is what we all have been led to believe the Republican Party wants:...

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says a potentially deadly insect known as the "kissing bug" has made its way into every southern state, impacting more than half of the United States. There have been reports of it in California as well, according to CDC, which noted four of the 11 different species of the bug -- also known as triatomines -- have been spotted in the state. The bug typically feeds on the blood of mammals, including humans and pets, biting them in the lip area. If the bug is infected with parasites and defecates in the wound,...

    The Obama administration let hundreds of illegal immigrants stay in the U.S. even though federal authorities knew in advance that an open borders group coached them to falsely claim "credible fear" to get asylum, according to documents obtained by Judicial Watch from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The operation was part of a scam conducted by an immigrant rights organization called the National Immigrant Youth Alliance (NITA), which in recent years has coordinated demonstrations along the Southwest border in Texas and Arizona. In mid-2014 the group orchestrated a racket seeking to bring 250 illegal aliens into the U.S. through...

Here, Solais thought she would find decent pay for honest work. She imagined earning enough money to feed and clothe Ruth, the 3-year-old daughter she left behind with family in Mexico. Instead, Solais, 28, could spend the next five years or more in prison. Roxboro police say she is a thief who used a stranger’s Social Security number when seeking work as a cook at a local Italian restaurant.

    Donald Trump is like a contagion who infects everyone around him. Once you've kissed, you can never wipe his saliva off your face. Consider the venerable (in its own view) NBC. This year, the network fired Trump, only to find it is Trump Lite. On June 16, when Trump was announcing his candidacy for the White House, the billionaire reality-TV star faulted Mexico for sending problem people to the United States. Quoth Trump: "They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists." Those comments were stupid and racist -- and they should have caused Trump to tank in the polls and...

Despite that omission, it seems likely that if Rubio continues to rise in the GOP race, someone, somewhere will pay attention to his most important accomplishment.

    The fourth Republican presidential debate was, by most accounts, a bit of a snoozer. But in a good way. There was less interpersonal conflict, more substantive discussion of economic policy. Donald Trump, in particular, was judged "subdued" and “surprisingly subdued” and "uncharacteristically subdued.” Trump himself pronounced it "a very elegant evening" in which "everybody actually did fine." All very forgettable, civil and elegant. Except the part where the Republican front-runner proposed the forced expulsion of 11 million people and endorsed the historical precedent of Operation Wetback, an Eisenhower-era mass deportation program that was as ugly and offensive as its name....

    November 13, 2015Another Look At Trump's Immigration and Repatriation Proposals... by sundance The topic of illegal immigration is a subject we have reviewed, researched and offered possible solutions for consideration for over four years. In Part ONE we outlined how illegal aliens achieve work in the U.S. and what would be needed to remove the incentive.Any solution to solving the problem must first understand how the problem of illegal alien employment is supported by U.S. policy. In our opinion, removing those conflicting employment policies is something that has to be done. A new example surfaced recently:(Dade County Schools) […] Before...

    On Thursday, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio traded barbs over immigration policy. But it wasn't the usual sort of immigration debate for a Republican primary. Cruz attacked Rubio's position, based on his Senate voting record. He argued that Rubio had not only proposed the so-called "gang of eight" immigration bill, but he had also voted against amendments that would have strengthened border security and limited immigration. Rubio, instead of disingenuously trying to change his position to please anyone, instead argued Cruz's position is closer to his own than he lets on. "Ted is a supporter of legalizing people that are...

    Man Jailed For Running Over Dallas Police Officer Has Already Been Deported 3 Times A 29-year-old man who was ejected from a Dallas nightclub over the weekend was shot by police after hitting two off-duty officers in uniform with his SUV, which seriously injured one, police confirmed. It emerged this week that the man, identified as Eduardo Gonzalez-Rios, was reportedly deported three times in the past eleven years. Gonzalez-Rios was removed from the Kalua Discotheque by bouncers after a disturbance inside the club shortly before midnight on Sunday, Dallas police said. The suspect retrieved his black SUV from the valet...

    This week’s Republican debate was a good one, but as usual it produced the typical rounds of harrumphing among media critics who disagree with conservative principles on any number of policy points. One of the more bitterly argued ones this week has been the reemergence of Donald Trump’s various plans for doing something about the illegal immigrant problem which has been engulfing the nation for far too long. Chief in point during this round as been, yet again, Trump’s plan to deport illegal immigrants in large numbers and build a wall to staunch the flow into the country. Some...

    When it comes to the topic of immigration, you may not be surprised to find that a new poll discovered that Republicans trust Donald Trump more than any other candidate on the issue. A new YouGov poll found that Trump was far and away the most trusted candidate concerning immigration among the still large field of GOP candidates for president. About half of of those polled, 49 percent, said that Trump had the right ideas on immigration. These findings are significant considering months of attacks by the mainstream media trying to tear Trump down over the immigration issue. His ratings...

    A day after the fourth GOP debate, Ben Carson took a hatchet to Donald Trump's plan to deport millions of illegal immigrants living in the United States. In an exclusive interview with the Washington Examiner Wednesday before a private fundraiser outside of Richmond, Va., Carson took aim at Trump's deportation push, saying it will "hurt" the billionaire candidate more than the Republican Party. "I think they hurt Donald Trump in the long run," Carson said, referring to the deportation plans. "I think there are enough people who know that there are others in the race that are very reasonable. I...

    Ben Carson is blasting fellow Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's immigration proposals as outside the mainstream and impractical. "I think they hurt Donald Trump in the long run," Carson said in an interview with the Washington Examiner published Thursday, referring to Trump's deportation plans. "I think there are enough people who know that there are others in the race that are very reasonable. I don't think he necessarily is the representation of the Republican Party - far from it," Carson told the Examiner. -snip- "The people that are here, the 11.5 million people here, rounding them up and deporting them...

    Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida said Thursday that while some illegal immigrants will have to be deported, it's unrealistic to think it can happen for all of the approximately 11 million in the United States. Mr. Rubio was asked if he would accept or denounce 2016 GOP presidential rival Donald Trump's tough deportation plan, and the Florida senator said both sides have valid points to make. "We are going to have to deport some people - otherwise, if you're not going to enforce your laws, what's the point of having those laws?" Mr. Rubio said on Fox News' "America's Newsroom."...

    Earlier this week Marco Rubio went on Hannity to discuss the current state of his campaign. Rubio was asked about the 'Gang of 8' Amnesty plan he supported immediately after joining the US Senate with Chuck Schumer and Dick Durbin. Rubio doubled down. Marco Rubio: Look I live in a state that was deeply impacted by immigration and I was trying to make a difference. I was trying to make the most conservative bill possible in a senate controlled by Democrats. This morning Gang of Ocho member Marco Rubio told America's Newsroom that he will not support mass deportation of...
