  • Jeb pushes back on Trump comments: Mexican immigration rate ‘basically flat’

    The Hill ^ | 8/30/15 | Mark Hensch
    Former Gov. Jeb Bush (R-Fla.) said on Sunday that GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump is mistaken for blaming the immigration crisis on Mexico. Bush added that most of the nation’s influx of illegal immigrants is actually coming from Central America instead. “Right now the number of Mexicans crossing the border is basically flat,” he told host John Catsimatidis on “The Cats Roundtable” on AM 970 in New York. “The immigrants that are crossing legally or illegally in both cases are from Central America now,” he said. “It changes.” “What shouldn’t change is our commitment to respecting the rule of law...

    After talking to mayors and law enforcement on the Texas-Mexico border, Bush said, “What they said is a wall doesn’t work. It just doesn’t work. You can’t build a wall on the rugged terrain that exists there.” He continued, “What Donald Trump is proposing is a wall that can’t be built. And if it was to be built it would be hundreds of billions of dollars. He wants everybody to be deported which will tear family life asunder

    “PEEK FOOD”, the first restaurant for dogs in the Yucatán Peninsula opened its doors on July the 4th, 2015. It is a new gastronomical concept that offers an experience for diners that want to spend time together with their beloved pets, have a meal themselves and feed their dogs with well balanced and healthy food options. The Restaurant was born from the idea of brother and sister Rashid Ariel and Citlali Georgina Alcocer Cortazar, who have a strong relationship with dogs since they were kids. Rashid decided to become a professional dog trainer. Rashid and Citlali noticed that “Pet Friendly”...

    Recently announced crude oil swaps with Mexico likely to provide economic and environmental benefits Under licenses approved earlier this month by the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS), an office within the Department of Commerce that administers export controls on crude oil, volumes of crude oil produced in the United States and Mexico up to the approved volume cap will be exchanged. These swaps will likely involve U.S light sweet crude, such as the growing output from shale formations in the United States, and Mexican heavy sour crude. The approved swaps are expected to be both economically and environmentally beneficial...

    When you’ve got one foot in a bear trap, the natural reaction is to scramble to get your other foot to safe ground. But what if, in your panic, you step in another bear trap? That’s what Jeb Bush did this past week. Trying to make amends with irate Latino voters after he used the term “anchor babies” to describe the U.S.-citizen children of undocumented immigrants who cross the border to give birth, he unleashed this gem by way of “explanation”: “What I was talking about was the specific case of fraud being committed where there’s organized efforts — and...

    More than a few Republican graybeards are panicking about how the rise of Donald Trump is pulling at the seams of the GOP’s big tent. However, the Republican establishment itself has played a big role in creating this particular Frankenstein’s monster. In September 2014, I found myself in Lexington, Nebraska, population 10,230. I was at a campaign stop with the soon-to-be-elected junior senator from Nebraska, and it seemed as if voters in this small town wanted to talk about one issue in particular. Just a few weeks earlier—right before school was to start—the federal government had showed up in Lexington...

    The Mexican government is warning that Texas’ denial of birth certificates for U.S. children born here to undocumented immigrants stands to imperil the relationship between Mexico and the Lone Star State. The concern was raised in an amicus brief filed Monday evening to lend support to immigrants parents who sued Texas after being denied birth certificates for their U.S.-born children, even after showing their “matrículas,” the ID cards issued by the Mexican consulate to undocumented immigrants. Mexico says the practice stands in stark contrast to the historical practice among countries to accept passports or other forms of ID to issue...

    Many of the more than 400 people who attended a Jeb Bush town hall meeting in Pensacola say the former governor was more engaged with the crowd and more passionate when discussing key issues. Bush is not known for his public speaking skills. He’ll be the first to tell you he’s not an entertainer, but he appeared to be more enthusiastic and animated at the small venue today. Jeb Bush seems to do well when speaking to smaller, more intimate groups. His main opponent, however, thrives at chaotic, massive events.

    Jeb Bush wrote the book on immigration. Donald Trump blusters about it and appeals to the worst impulses of Americans who feel threatened by the nation's increasing diversity that they are powerless to stop. It is up to the former Florida governor to take the high road on a smarter approach to immigration policy and to call out Trump's pandering pledge to "take back our country'' even as other Republican presidential candidates meekly fall in line with the bombastic baiting. Bush ramped up his criticism of Trump's reckless immigration pledges this week at a campaign stop in a Texas border...

    Jeb Bush’s not so great week got worse today. The former Florida Governor began it by defending his use of the controversial term,” anchor babies.” Then he said it was more of an Asian issue than one involving Latino immigrants. Later it was reported that there have been money issues with his campaign, with some staff members’ paychecks having recently “shrank.” Now Bush wakes up to a new national Quinnipiac poll on the GOP 2016 race, where he finds himself trailing Donald Trump by 21 points. Trump is at 28 percent, Ben Carson is second with 12 percent, and Jeb...

On Rachel Maddow's show tonight, Rather declared himself "suspicious" about the battle between Donald Trump and Fox News, suggesting that Trump and Roger Ailes might have "gotten together and planned out" the feud for their mutual benefit.

    WASHINGTON -- Every sulfurous belch from the molten interior of the volcanic Trump phenomenon injures the chances of a Republican presidency. After Donald Trump finishes plastering a snarling face on conservatism, any Republican nominee will face a dauntingly steep climb to reach even the paltry numbers that doomed Mitt Romney. It is perhaps quixotic to try to distract Trump's supporters with facts, which their leader, who is no stickler for dignity, considers beneath him. Still, consider these: The white percentage of the electorate has been shrinking for decades and will be about 2 points smaller in 2016 than in 2012....

Trump, who already had called on a different journalist for the first question, told Ramos to be quiet and wait his turn. Ramos refused: “I have the right to ask a question,” he declared. At a nod from The Donald, security escorted Ramos from the room. (video at link) Jorge Ramos may be the...

    You should know that last night, during Donald Trump’s press conference in Dubuque, Iowa there was a confrontation between Univision reporter Jorge Ramos and US Presidential Candidate Donald Trump. After watching that interview, I believe that Jorge Ramos’ actions were an embarrassment to Hispanics, immigrants, reporters and to Univision. We all know that Donald Trump has become #1 in the polls because when he talks about immigration, he stirs a sentiment that resonates with many Americans who think that immigrants come here to take cover, be macho men, and enjoy the rights without respect, and do whatever they want to...

    There are few uglier phrases in the modern conservative lexicon than "anchor baby," not least because of the literal imagery the term brings to mind of a human infant, wrapped in chains and flung overboard to secure a vessel in place. But even as a figure of speech, it's a despicable concept. It refers to the notion that undocumented immigrants exploit the quintessentially American policy of birthright citizenship, which confers the status of citizen to anyone born on U.S. territory, by sneaking across the border to give birth to their children. Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush recently stumbled into the...

    Now this… Ramos made the TIME Magazine 100 most influential list. The Mexican-American is a committed open borders leftist. His daughter works for the Hillary Clinton campaign. Jorge Ramos also confessed that he still votes in both Mexico and America. I’ve never ceased to be Mexican. I have two passports, and I vote in elections in both countries. I’m deeply proud of this privileged duality. The best thing about America is its embrace of diversity. The worst thing about America, of course, is the racist and xenophobic attitudes that tend to emerge now and then — Arizona’s anti-immigrant laws, for...

    Two minutes into The Donald’s press conference - after an exchange that went something like this: DT: “Sit down” GR: “No”DT: “Sit down”GR: “No”DT: “Throw the bum out” The Donald had Jorge Ramos deported: And, just like in real life, Jorge was allowed to come right back in, where he continued his argument over deportation.Hola! I’m back!The press expressed righteous outrage on behalf of Jorge, a Univision reporter of color. Others suggested that perhaps Jorge, unwilling to wait his turn,was not so much “reporting” as he was “heckling.”So I’ll let you decide: who was out of line, The Donald or...

    PHOENIX, Arizona — Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio—known here simply as “Sheriff Joe”—loves 2016 GOP frontrunner Donald Trump and wants to accompany him on a trip to Mexico that would, in his estimation, either lead to a show of U.S. force in getting that country to come to the table on immigration and trade or expose that Mexico is uninterested in solving such problems. “I want to go to Mexico,” Arpaio told Breitbart News in a wide-ranging, nearly two-hour long interview in his office at the Maricopa County justice complex in downtown Phoenix. “I’ve gotten resistance from the Mexican government,...

    Remember when Jeb Bush was on top of the polls? Or Scott Walker? Both have now fallen to the point where they are fighting for table scraps, tied for fourth place in New Hampshire. Bush has 7%, while Trump has 35%. A new national poll is no better for Bush, showing Trump with a 30-point lead (40% to 10%) over Bush. And now Bush is apparently having trouble raising money and, incredibly, paying staffers: A prominent Florida donor backing Bush said the former Sunshine State governor and his supporting super PAC are having to work even harder to keep up...

    Jorge Ramos, host of the Fusion Network show America with Jorge Ramos, disclosed Friday that his daughter Paola has signed up as an employee of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign. In a statement posted to Fusion’s website, Ramos expressed pride for his daughter but insisted his family connection would not affect his objectivity as a journalist: As journalists the most important thing we have is our credibility and integrity. We maintain that, in part, through transparency with our audience, our colleagues and our critics. That is why I am disclosing that my daughter, Paola, has accepted a position working with...
