    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...

    On June 25, the United States issued a formal request to the Mexican government for the extradition of Joaquín Guzmán Loera, known as Chapo, who was being held at Mexico’s highest security prison. On July 11, less than three weeks later, Guzmán Loera released himself from the supposedly impregnable prison in President Enrique Peña Nieto’s home state, by means of a sixty-foot-deep tunnel that had apparently been dug from a half-built house a mile away, directly into the shower of his prison cell. Guzmán, of course, had been transferred to the Almoloya prison immediately after his capture eighteen months earlier,...

    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...

    Jeb Bush told MSNBC's Jose Diaz-Balart that he was "herido," Spanish for "hurt," by Donald Trump's comments about undocumented Mexican immigrants during an interview conducted entirely in Spanish on Monday. "I was hurt hearing somebody speaking in such a vulgar fashion. This makes solving this problem much more difficult," Bush said, according to a translator. "When we have politicians like that we cannot progress." "In a political sense it was bad, and it creates an environment that is worse," he added.

    Kicking off an afternoon swing through Central Florida, Jeb Bush told a group of pastors that Christian businesses should not be “compelled” to participate in gay weddings and that he supports statehood for Puerto Rico and “legal status” — but not citizenship — for millions of immigrants who are now in the U.S. illegally. On immigration reform, Bush said, “We need to have a path to legal status for the 11 million people here…What else would you do?” He added: “The idea of self-deportation or the idea of rounding people up is not an American value.” Bush said legal status...

Donald Trump, Scott Walker and Rick Santorum revealed important things about themselves in high-pressure moments this past week, surrounded by the cameras and tape recorders of national media. Trump on national TV and on the Arizona border stumbled and let himself get boxed into saying he would offer amnesty to the illegal aliens who aren't the "bad ones." He seemed to be defensive and trying to prove that he isn't hostile to immigrants by also indicating he would like to see legal immigration increased. But Walker...

A new Economist/YouGov poll released on Friday actually showed Trump gaining support in the last week, despite a controversy over his comments questioning Sen.

According to the poll, the number of registered Republican primary voters who responded that Trump is their first choice jumped from 15% at the beginning of July to 28% last week. Another 10% of voters pick him as their second choice. That puts the real-estate...

    MEXICO CITY – Mexico's attorney general says authorities have found at least 60 mass graves with 129 bodies in the southern city of Iguala since the disappearance of 43 college students there last September, a case in which the government says the youths were killed and incinerated. The attorney general's office says the number of bodies found from October to May could be more, because it is counting only those instances in which its mass grave specialists get involved. Iguala is a municipality of 120,000 people 200 kilometers (160 miles) south of Mexico City. A confrontation between students and police...

    Disappointing, but not surprising. The depressing reality though that is that most of the Republican field has endorsed amnesty in one form or another. So this isn't much of a surprise. Trump is using his own vocabulary, but he's echoing the same amnesty talking points you could hear from Marco Rubio... or Barack Obama. 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. "Well, the first thing we do is take the bad ones — of which there are, unfortunately, quite a few," said Trump,...

    A federal judge in California has ruled that the Obama administration’s detention of children and their mothers who were caught crossing the border illegally is a serious violation of a longstanding court settlement, and that the families should be released as quickly as possible. In a decision late Friday roundly rejecting the administration’s arguments for holding the families, Judge Dolly M. Gee of Federal District Court for the Central District of California found that two detention centers in Texas that the administration opened last summer fail to meet minimum legal requirements of the 1997 settlement for facilities housing children. -snip-...

    Donald Trump may be thousands of miles from Washington on the Texas-Mexico border, but on Capitol Hill he's center stage in the fight over illegal immigration. The bill, which is formally called the "Enforce the Law for Sanctuary Cities Act," would block states and cities from receiving federal law enforcement funding if they have so-called “sanctuary city” practices in place, blocking the enforcement of certain federal immigration laws. It passed today in the House with overwhelming Republican support in a 241-179 vote, with only six Democrats joining the majority. Democrats have pejoratively labeled the legislation “The Donald Trump Act,” tying...

"I'm running to draw people toward our cause rather than push them away," Bush said during a town hall-style meeting in New Hampshire. "Our message has to be uplifting, positive, hopeful, rather than negative (and) divisive." Speaking to a predominantly white audience in northern New Hampshire, Bush said Republicans must campaign in Latino communities. He delivered a brief line in...

    Is Mexico adopting an old British practice from the colonial era? Is Donald Trump correct when he says Mexico is sending some of its criminals into the United States mixed in with otherwise law abiding immigrants? During the colonial period Britain cut the cost of operating jails by sentencing some of its criminals to “penal transportation to” the North American colonies. After the American Revolution “transportation” meant being sent to Australia or New Zealand. The practice was particularly common with Irish and Scottish criminals and is mentioned in some Irish folk songs

    If there's a small silver lining for the Republican Party in the bonanza of insanity that is Donald Trump's candidacy, it's this: He's single-handedly managed to make the rest of the GOP field look downright reasonable by comparison. There's less talk of a "clown car" primary when the main attraction is the ringmaster of his own circus. Each day, Trump seems to reach new heights of absurdity, offensiveness, and popularity among Republican poll respondents. On Tuesday, he called fellow candidate Lindsey Graham an "idiot" and handed out the South Carolina senator's cellphone number — a response to Graham referring to...

    All the negative press Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is facing lately is the result of a national press out to get him and "not looking out" for the American public. That's according to Fox News commentator Bill O'Reilly. On his show Tuesday, O'Reilly said Trump is getting a raw deal from the national press because he isn't "cowering before them." "He has no fear," said O'Reilly, who has been known to attend sporting events with Trump. "He could not care less about censoring himself and the press does not intimidate him. So because of that approach, the media believe...

    Donald Trump has been losing friends fast since he called Mexican immigrants “rapists” at his campaign kickoff in June: Television networks, a department store and a mattress company have all “fired” the bronze-haired developer. Amid the defections, though, one Trump buddy is standing by his man: Trump confidante Michael Cohen has been nearly as visible as Trump himself in recent days, defending his boss before increasingly frustrated CNN talking heads. On July 11, Cohen told CNN weekend host Michael Smerconish that Trump “has a great relationship with Latinos.” On July 12, Cohen asked CNN “Reliable Sources” host Brian Stelter, “Why...

    Former Gov. Jesse Ventura says he’s backing Sen. Bernie Sanders in his bid for president. In a blog post on his independent media site, Ventura praised Sanders for challenging Hillary Clinton for the Democratic Party nomination. “I think what Bernie Sanders is doing is extremely healthy,” Ventura wrote. “I love the idea of somebody throwing a fly in the ointment.” This isn’t the first time Ventura backed a presidential candidate looking to shake up the system. In 2008 and 2012, Ventura backed Republican Ron Paul for president. In 2004, Ventura backed Democrat John Kerry against Republican President George W. Bush....

    MOTHER OF SON MURDERED BY ILLEGAL ALIEN SLAMS SANCTUARY CITIES, POLITICIANS: ‘YOUR SILENCE SPEAKS VOLUMES’ At a Tuesday Senate hearing dedicated to the families who lost loved ones thanks to illegal aliens, Laura Wilkerson gave testimony on her youngest son Joshua’s horrific death while some in the silent audience wept.

    The media, Democrats, and weak-kneed Republicans who defend and dismiss our porous Southern border, have plenty of blood on their hands — and not just the everyday Americans victimized by people who simply shouldn’t be here. Due to our unwillingness to secure the border and protect our own citizens, this country lost two major American artists in the last decade, Bob Clark and Adrienne Shelly. Bob Clark was just 67 when Hector Velazquez-Nava’s SUV crossed the center line on the morning of April 4, 2007, in Los Angeles California. Velazquez-Nava was not insured, did not have a driver’s license, but...

    Donald Trump published a photograph of a handwritten letter from Univision's Jorge Ramos on Friday that included the anchor's personal cellphone number, a move that is likely to inflame the recent tensions between the two parties. In the letter, sent Thursday, Ramos asks if Trump will sit with him for an interview. Ramos then provides his cellphone number, in the event that Trump "would like to talk first over the phone." Trump published the photo to his personal Instagram account on Friday, noting that Univision was "begging" him for interviews even after publicly severing business ties with him.

    Pitbull has a strong message for Donald Trump: Watch out for "El Chapo!" The artist delivered that message to raucous applause after accepting an award at Premios Juventud, a Univision awards ceremony that aired on Thursday night. The drug kingpin Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman escaped from a Mexican prison last week and is considered one of the world's most dangerous criminals. After his escape, Trump even engaged with a fake Guzman in a brief, albeit threatening exchange on Twitter. Pitbull began his short speech by thanking Trump, the Republican presidential hopeful, for inviting him to eat in his hotel and...

    The celebration of Obama's capitulation to the dictators is in full swing when you watch the local media in Miami. Looks like the ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC stations all sent reporters have "journalists" up there singing the praises of Castro and Obama.
