    The latest poll from The Wall Street Journal and NBC News is all good news for Donald Trump and all bad news for former Florida governor Jeb Bush and Florida Senator Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL). Since the last WSJ/NBC poll in June, despite a full-frontal media push to destroy him, billionaire businessman Trump has risen from just 1% to take the lead with 19%. Bush, who was in first place in June, has not just been overtaken by Trump, his support has cratered from 22% to just 14%. Bush is now in third place behind Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, who...

    A large majority of Latinos view Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump negatively, according to a new poll, and more than half believe his recent comments about Mexican immigrants were racist and inappropriate. Trump, who is leading the Republican field in polls ahead of the first debate this week, has drawn both headlines and scorn for his incendiary comments about Mexicans and immigrants, saying during his announcement speech in June that Mexico is “sending people that have lots of problems… They are bringing crime. They’re rapists.” A survey of 250 Latinos found that 75% view the television star and real estate...

    There are some things Jeb Bush seems more comfortable saying in Spanish. n his second language, the one he polished to woo his Mexican-born wife, Bush has more than once opened up in interviews in ways he has not yet in English. That may have to do with the questions Bush, an honorary Cuban American, gets asked in Spanish versus the ones he gets asked in English. But whether it's because of Bush or because of the interviewers, the former Florida governor has expressed himself in more personal terms en espańol.

    GOP presidential hopeful Jeb Bush announced a six-point plan to improve border security Monday, calling for a series of basic steps that draw general agreement — and a controversial crackdown on sanctuary cities. Mr. Bush, a former two-term Florida governor, said he was a “trailblazer” in working to enlist his state police to help enforce federal immigration laws, and said those cities and counties that refuse to cooperate should have federal law enforcement grants withheld. His six-point plan, released to WMUR, a television station in New Hampshire, where the GOP candidates are gathered for a forum later Monday, calls for...

Bush, who's made immigration a key focus of his White House bid, outlined six proposals to enhance border security and enforce immigration law, arguing that all six would receive "bipartisan support in Congress."

    Jeb Bush, now the undisputed king of fundraisers in both parties, came prepared on Sunday to address head-on the immigration issue, one of his biggest vulnerabilities with Republican core voters. He told an audience of major donors that the longest-running, unaddressed problem the U.S. faces has been legal “chain” immigration. Mr. Bush said it allows relatives beyond the immediate family to migrate to the U.S. legally. He said that the unending influx crowds out “economically driven immigrants” — that is, people who come to the U.S. to find jobs and education that will allow them to better themselves. He said...

Jeb Bush has taken a starkly different approach in his presidential campaign by actively trying to reach out and embrace the Latino community. In an interview with Telemundo, Bush opened up about the discrimination that his half-Hispanic son, Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush, experienced as a child due to his olive complexion. According to the 2016 hopeful, who is fluent in Spanish and married to a Mexican woman named Columba, his son faced teasing because of his skin color. "I know your three sons...

Mr. Trump’s bombastic ways have simultaneously made it all but impossible for those vying to be the alternative to Mr. Bush to emerge, and easier for Mr. Bush, the former Florida governor, to position himself as the serious and thoughtful alternative to a candidate who has upended the early nominating process.

    “Sanctuary cities” have been in the headlines for weeks. Late last week, the House of Representatives voted to strip federal funds from sanctuary cities, which refuse to cooperate with federal immigration enforcement efforts. And in early July, an illegal immigrant who had been deported five times and convicted of seven felonies shot and killed a young woman while she was walking with her father and a friend along a pier in San Francisco, a city famous for its sanctuary policies. Sanctuary cities have existed for decades – the first one was established in Los Angeles in 1979 – as places...

"When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best. … They're sending people that have lots of problems," he said then. "They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people." Those who are not committing crimes could find legal status under a Trump administration, he told CNN's Dana Bash in...

    Republican Donald Trump calls for the deportation of all 11 million people estimated to be living in the country illegally while allowing the "really good people" to return. Such an effort may be more difficult than Trump realizes because deporting so many people means finding them first. The government does not know the identities of many of the millions of people who have come into the country illegally or remained after their legally issued visas expired. Locating immigrants who don't have a legal immigration status has stymied officials for decades.

Ted Cruz (R-Texas) recently sent a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry asking more questions about a U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) document that appears to contradict key aspects of the Administration’s policy regarding the handling of Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC). This letter represents the latest step in Sen. Cruz’s thorough examination of the Administration’s multi-agency approach to last year’s UAC influx, and follows two prior letters to HHS Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell on the subject: Sen. Cruz’s...

    Last year a retired Border Patrol Officer by the name of Zach Taylor went on camera to explain the driving force behind the unprecedented surge in illegal immigration happening on our southern border. Taylor went on to note that what was happening at our border was not due to a spur of the moment event, or “a humanitarian crisis”, but asymmetrical warfare. The surge we saw at the border was a part of a larger, more chilling event that served one purpose and one purpose only, to show our enemies that our southern border had been compromised and the government...

    Donald Trump laid out his immigration plan on Hannity Monday night. Trump called for “good illegals” to be sent back and let back in while keeping out the bad dudes. "Trump: You got to build a wall. It’s not an easy thing to do. And I’ll get it done. And believe me, I’ll do it for the right but I’m also going to have Mexico pay for it. Mexico is making a fortune off of us. They will pay for it. So, just mark my word. That’s called “negotiation.” …Before I even start a wall we’d get rid of the...

    This should answer the question of why Donald Trump resonates with the Republican base. Despite having criticized Mitt Romney for being too hardline on immigration in 2012, Trump has until very recently embraced the hardline positions — and those turn out to be very popular among GOP voters. A new poll from CNN shows that normalizing the illegals who have been living here gets 55% support from the general public, but 64% of Republicans prefer deportation: The poll also finds Trump’s positions on immigration are at odds with those of most Americans, but may be providing him a boost in...

    Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush sat down for his first Spanish-language interview as a 2016 candidate on Monday, committing to make comprehensive immigration reform a reality if elected president. "I do make that commitment, and I know we can do it," Bush said in Spanish to Telemundo's José Díaz-Balart, in an interview conducted in Orlando, Florida. Bush has said he supports a comprehensive immigration reform plan that includes a creating a pathway to legal status -- but not citizenship -- for undocumented immigrants currently in the country. His position stands in contrast to some other Republican 2016 candidates who have...

    Illegal immigrants storm Miami Beach during model’s shoot A group of illegal immigrants inadvertently interrupted a Miami Beach photo shoot this month, as they sprinted from a boat to the shore in the middle of a modeling video. Ekaterina Juskowski filmed the nine or so migrants running onto the sand while shooting a video with a model friend around 6 a.m. on July 10, according to the New Times Broward-Palm Beach. At first she saw a boat approaching the shore, but figured it was just harboring scuba divers, so she turned off her camera. She switched it back on when...

    I hope Trump’s MSNBC interview doesn’t surprise too many people: Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump took a softer stance [on] immigration during a television interview Friday, saying he believes in a “merit system” for undocumented immigrants already living in the U.S. … During Friday’s interview, Trump said the U.S. should take a two-step approach to the 11 million undocumented immigrants currently living in the country. Wouldn’t it be nice if there really were only 11 million? The actual number is probably at least three times that high and rocketing upward every moment. Meanwhile, we can’t find even a loose cannon,...

    Jeb Bush told Telemundo he wants a pathway to legal status for all 11 million undocumented immigrants in the United States. The former Florida governor granted his first Spanish-language interview as a presidential candidate to Telemundo Monday evening. In the interview, he talked about his immigration policies, his thoughts on Donald Trump and Cuba, and his home life and family. "First, coming here legally has to be easier than coming here illegally," he said. "So there needs to be an agreement with the border ... for the 11 million people (who are here illegally), they must come out of the...

    President Bush's son, Jeb, is looking for a maid who's a legal U.S. resident. A maid who had worked at Bush's Miami home for three years was deported back to her native Honduras last week. Bush was out jogging when immigration agents showed up so his wife, Columba, had to deal with them. "She indicated, `Yes, she works here,' brought the lady out, and the two agents showed her the deportation order,said Richard Smith, director of the INS's Miami office."

    Jeb Bush implored his Republican presidential rivals Monday to reject the "crazy message of hate" that he sees at play in the campaign and cast himself as a "committed conservative," but not an "angry" one, in remarks rooted in Donald Trump's inflammatory rhetoric and the backlash that followed. As conservatives, he said in a speech to pastors, "if we act with our heart, people will rise." Afterward, Bush gave his call for political civility a harder edge in a raucous rally where he urged other GOP contenders to quit scolding each other. "We have to campaign with joy in our...

    Presidential contender and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush will be courting a critical group of voters Monday afternoon – the fast growing community of Latinos in Central Florida, an area where the Republican last campaigned in 2002. Hundreds of thousands of Latinos, mainly Puerto Ricans, have settled in Central Florida in the years since Bush last served as governor. They include many Puerto Ricans who have fled the island’s economic woes and diminishing opportunities.
