King Scott on Immigration

In my travels today, I was fortunate to be able to speak with a man named Scott at a cigar store in Conroe, Texas. Scott demonstrated to me a level of wisdom that most political analysts wouldn’t give the average voter credit for. Scott has done a lot of thinking about the issues our country faces and has come to the conclusion that, while he doesn’t want to be President, he could fix a lot of our problems if he was crowned King for two years. Scott’s first plan dealt with government spending and reducing the deficit. Within the first

Fiorina: Path to Citizenship Wouldn’t Be Fair (AUDIO)

The Daily Caller reported on Carly Fiorina’s recent appearance on Laura Ingraham’s radio show. Ingraham asked Fiorina for her opinion on Jeb Bush’s immigration plan, and his recent comments about it: “Jeb Bush was out there talking the other day talking about how his approach to immigration, I guess, in comparison to all of your thoughts on it is the ‘grown-up plan,’” Ingraham told Fiorina. “What’s your reaction to that?” “I don’t think it’s very helpful when people question other’s motivations just because they disagree with them,” Fiorina responded. “I don’t think it’s a fair plan to say that people

Ted Cruz’s Immigration Speed Bump

The campaign season is off to a running start with Senator Ted Cruz, who threw his hat in the ring last week, and his launch at Liberty University says a lot about his plan for a surprise upset. A large part of Cruz’s strategy next year, say observers, will be a play for religious voters, particularly the evangelicals who dominate early primaries like Iowa and South Carolina: Liberty produces thousands of graduates—many of whom remain in Virginia—who volunteer and vote for conservative causes. Though national evangelical Christians have shown less interest in conservative politicking during the Obama years, Liberty University

Is Ted Cruz Latino?

I had a great conversation last week about Ted Cruz with Alejandro Negron, the host of the Hispanic Agenda on Channel 8/Telemundo, who kindly introduced me as “a leading Latino conservative voice and advocate for Latinos inside the Republican Party.” Alejandro started by asking me about the media voices saying Cruz is not really a Latino, and whether that is fair. Of course, I defended Cruz: “It’s totally unfair, because it tries to create this perception that the Hispanic community is a monolithic community, that there is one Hispanic agenda that all Hispanics have to buy into,”  I told him. “To

Did Walker Just Approve a Path to Citizenship?

At a New Hampshire GOP dinner earlier this month, Scott Walker reportedly changed his position on immigration. The Wall Street Journal’s Reid Epstein was tipped off to Walker’s comments by three separate attendees of the private event. He reported: Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker told a private dinner of New Hampshire Republicans this month that he backed the idea of allowing undocumented immigrants to stay in the country and to eventually become eligible for citizenship, a position at odds with his previous public statements on the matter. His previous position on immigration was made most clear in an interview with Sean

No, Immigration is Not a “Poison Pill” for Jeb

Over the past several months, Jeb Bush has earned a reputation for bucking purity tests on a number of issues. Some of them, like Common Core, are obvious disadvantages for anyone wanting to win the Presidency.  On immigration, though, the National Journal points out that the last two Republican Presidential nominees both rejected immigration reform, only to lose the general election: While John McCain and Mitt Romney, the eventual nominees in the 2008 and 2012 contests, earlier indicated support for citizenship to varying degrees, each man backed away from that position during his race… Bush, obviously wary of the dangers
