Why are Republicans so Afraid of Immigration Reform?

Bob PriceIt's a simple question really. Why exactly are Republican's so afraid of the topic of Immigration Reform? Immigration Reform is an issue I have been writing about for years. I have come to have a pretty deep understanding of the issues and how people react to discussion of this very emotional topic. Border Security? That's a pretty simple one. Secure the border - end of discussion. But Immigration Reform, that is a much tougher can of worms, and it can be a potential third-rail topic for Republican candidates and elected officials. Just ask Congressman John Carter (R-TX) from Round Rock, Texas.   Read more »

While Ted Cruz Stands on Senate Floor, House Works on Immigration Reform Process

As Senator Ted Cruz wrapped up his historic speech on the floor of the U.S. Senate, House members continue their work on other important issues facing our nation - namely, immigration reform and border security. The House has already done its work to continue the operation of our government by passing its continuing resolution that funds all governmental operations EXCEPT Obamacare and can continue their other work while the Democrats in the Senate decide if they are going to shut down the government.   Read more »

Texas Legislature 2013 - Reduce Unlicensed & Uninsured Drivers on Texas Roads

Are you legal to drive in Texas?  Wish everyone was?The 2011 Texas Legislature passed a new law to prohibit the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) from issuing a Texas Driver's License to anyone who could not prove they were a citizen or legal U.S. resident. There were many good reasons for that I will address later, but there was one HUGE unintended consequence. The passage of this law created more lawlessness on Texas highways

The GOP Embracing Latinos

I had the privilege of addressing the Republican Party’s Growth and Opportunity Project these past few weeks on how the party can better connect with Hispanic voters. Whether well meaning or otherwise, the Republican Party has been gravely ineffectual in the past in adequately engaging and capitalizing on the vitality and strength of the Latino communities.

Many of us active within the Republican Party have long been frustrated by this. Many a brave Republican leader have now stepped up to help repair the damage of the past and to help guide us forward to a vital and integrated American future that includes the full strength of our Latino communities. Praise goes to Sean Hannity, John Boehner, Marco Rubio, John McCain, Jeff Flake, among others.   Read more »

Border Security and Immigration Reform - Two Separate Issues that Must be Linked

It is clear that border security and immigration reform are two separate issues. Yet the two must be linked together as we try to develop a responsible solution to both of these problems facing our nation. Today, in Houston, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano is visiting to make a speech about border security and the job her department is doing. It is interesting that she chose Houston as the place to deliver this. Texans have been hammering her about border security from the day she took office.

The truth is, and we must acknowledge this, the border between the U.S. and Mexico is more secure now than it has ever been. One of the few good things the Obama Administration has done is to increase security along the border.

Dick Morris is Right - It is Time for Republicans to Lead on Immigration Reform

Dick Morris says Republicans should Own Immigration ReformToo often Republicans play defense on policy issues and allow Democrats (and the willing media accomplices) to control the language and tactics of the debate. Immigration reform has certainly been one of these areas. Democrats put forward a potential solution, and Republicans defend their position while offering little, if any, Republican ideas on the issue. This week, Dick Morris posted an article on his website, DickMorris.com where he challenges Republicans to move to the high ground and take a leadership role in fixing a problem that has long endured. Morris says Republicans should "Own Immigration Reform".
