    The La Raza-backed Rubio-Schumer immigration bill would have granted amnesty to the illegal alien population and would have expanded immigration levels beyond all known historical precedent— issuing 33 million new immigrants on green cards in the span of a single decade, permanently transforming the U.S. electorate and economy. Every immigrant with a green card could in turn bring relatives to the United States, collect welfare, and eventually vote and thus cancel out conservative ballots. “He was not only totally committed— he was in that room with us, with four Democrats, four Republicans… for hours a day, week after week after...

    The Bush-Rubio game of survival: It's been bubbling behind the scenes for weeks, and yesterday the fight between Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio broke out into the open. It's getting very prickly between the two Floridians, and here's the big reason why: Both have reason to be disappointed in their fundraising this past quarter, and they both need a boost fast. Bush's $13.4 million haul didn't impress a lot of observers, but he can claim that his total beat out Rubio's $5.7 million Team Rubio was quick to boast that their $11 million cash on hand number is more than...

    For months, Marco Rubio has run a low-key campaign, designed to keep a slow and steady pace. The past two weeks explain why. RIding a post-debate high in the polls, the newly threatening Rubio suddenly became a 2016 pin cushion, pierced by friends (Jeb Bush), rivals (Donald Trump) and strangers (Harvard professor Lawrence Lessig) alike. On Thursday evening, the ascendant Florida senator got whacked again as news of his surprisingly anemic quarterly fundraising went public -- he raised just $6 million between the end of June and the end of September, hardly the haul of a candidate with a bead...

In an interview with Fox News Latino, Rubio, a Florida Republican, said that he didnt think Trumps offensive remarks about Latinos would alienate the electorate from the GOP. At the same time, he said, Trump has to be held accountable for his controversial comments and positions. Rubio expressed exasperation over the billionaires antics, and said the election needed to be focused on substance and details about what policies a...

    A federal judge has upheld part of Arizonas contentious immigration law, rejecting claims that the so-called show your papers section discriminated against Hispanics. The ruling by U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton on Friday was on the last of seven challenges to the 2010 law. The section she upheld allows police in Arizona to check the immigration status of anyone they stop. Bolton ruled that immigration rights activists failed to show that police would enforce the law differently for Hispanics than other people.

    Former Gov. Rick Perry, looking to break through in a crowded Republican field for president, is positioning himself as a leading voice against billionaire businessman Donald Trump, whose weeks-old candidacy is already causing headaches for the GOP. Perry, who has kept a low public profile over the past week or two, delivered a speech Thursday at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., that was remarkable in its own right. He emphatically urged his party to work harder to connect with black voters and suggested the GOP has occasionally focused too much on state rights at the expense of civil...

    It seems every time you turn around, the Hillary Clinton campaign team is attempting to copy Marco Rubio. She scheduled her official campaign announcement the day after him.

Ironically, it was a similar theme that Marco Rubio used during his campaign launch. During his announcement he said: Just yesterday, a leader from...

    Marco Rubio bought a bunch of stuff he probably couldn't afford. Welcome to America. So The New York Times has pulled together another hit piece -- this one insinuating that Rubio, who the newspaper evidently believes is the GOP front-runner, is both a reckless spendthrift and a financial failure. The story -- either clumsily or, more likely, deliberately -- confuses offshore fishing boats with "luxury speedboats" and pickup trucks with SUVs to render a distasteful account of Rubio's financial life. But what we really learned is that though Rubio is not great with money, the senator from Florida has relatively...

    Team Hillary is pushing Julian Castro as her VP nominee. The Republicans are making a big push for the Hispanic vote, so that makes Castro an obvious pick. Julian Castro, and his twin brother, Congressman Joaquin, were early backers of 2008 Clinton......the odds of Mrs. Clinton picking another woman for the ticket are zero .... which eliminates Wendy Davis, the liberal darling of Texas Democrats. --SNIP--That leaves Julian Castro. At just 40 years old, hes a a two-term mayor of San Antonio, Texas, and is Obamas HUD Secy. The Castro brothers twins born to a single mother whose grandmother...

    Likely Republican presidential candidate Sen. Lindsey Graham predicted Thursday that the GOP will lose the 2016 presidential election unless they win over Hispanic voters by supporting a long, hard path to citizenship. If I were president of the United States, I would veto any bill that did not have a pathway to citizenship, the South Carolina Republican told USA Today. You would have a long, hard path to citizenship but I want to create that path because I dont like the idea of millions of people living in America for the rest of their lives being the hired help....

    Last year, as part of his Imperial decree of amnesty for illegal immigrants, resident Barack Obama created the White House Task Force on New Americans, whose goal is to vastly increase the numbers and rates at which immigrants were naturalized and granted citizenship. This Task Force works hand-in-hand with the George Soros-funded, open borders-promoting Migration Policy Institute, as well as the openly racist group La Raza, a Mexican nationalist organization that has called for the mass murder of white Americans and a return of the western states to Mexico. The Task Force is headed up by one Cecilia Munoz, Obamas...

    The first two Republicans to declare their presidential ambitionsSen. Ted Cruz of Texas and Sen. Rand Paul of Kentuckywill most likely battle each other for a limited pool of funds donated by true-red conservatives. Marco Rubio, the third Republican to declare his candidacy, has a much better shot at corralling serious corporate money. Politically, Rubio has been migrating from the limited-government, Tea Party edge of the GOP toward the mainstream, aligning himself with business interests seeking modest reforms rather than the radical downsizing of government. Rubio has positioned himself as an establishment candidate with appeal to grass-roots conservatives, says Ford...
