Some in G.O.P. Fear That Their Hard-Liners Will Alienate Latino Voters

All but drowned out by Republicans’ clamorous opposition to President Obama’s executive action on immigration are some leaders who worry that their party could alienate the fastest-growing group of voters, for 2016 and beyond, if its hottest heads become its face. They cite the Republican Party’s official analysis of what went wrong in 2012, the presidential-election year in which nominee Mitt Romney urged Latinos here illegally to “self-deport.” “If Hispanics think that we do not want...

Opinion: Why Latinos should reject Obama’s immigration decreto

Opinion: Why Latinos should reject Obama’s immigration decreto

Latinos should think long and hard before embracing President Obama’s executive action on immigration reform. There is no doubt that immigration reform is long overdue. However, it needs to be done in a lawful manner and through the legislative assembly. That is the way that the Constitution mandates that major issues be resolved in our country. Obama’s constitutionally questionable presidential decree will not really resolve the immigration status of those facing deportation. Instead, it will further...

Dear Mr. President: Act Now on Immigration

Dear Mr. President: Act Now on Immigration

In light of the refusal by the Republican House of Representatives to pass the Senate's bipartisan immigration reform bill, I urge you to take executive action to fulfill the critical goals of that comprehensive bill, which passed the Senate on a bipartisan vote of 68-32 on June 27, 2013. In doing so, you will be following in the tradition of past presidents of both parties. Eleven presidents have used their executive authority at least 40 times...
