Republicans remain clueless on immigration

A couple of news items during the past several days caught my eye and again convinced me that when it comes to the immigration issue, leaders of the Republican Party are unable to find their rear ends even while using both hands.

Let's start with Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus, who said Aug. 16 that Mitt Romney's use of the word self-deportation during last fall's...
NumbersUSA explains Paul Ryan's open borders stance

 In a July 29 interview with Breitbart News, NumbersUSA founder and President Roy Beck addressed Rep. Paul Ryan's affinity for open borders.

He (Ryan) is not part of the "patriotic libertarianism" wing that recognizes the importance of borders, Beck said. "I don't mean to say he hates America, or anything like that," Beck said. "He just doesn't believe borders are that important."  ...

Covering this issue could be dangerous, especially during the riots following Martin Luther King's 1968 assassination.  At the Chicago Daily News where I worked...

New York Times reporter explains deceptive immigration coverage

 I've been a critic of the media's coverage of immigration for years, primarily for ignoring mass immigration's impact on every aspect of our daily lives, and especially these days when 20 million Americans can't find full-time work.
