Jennifer Rubin: Without phony numbers, there's no need for Trump's wall 20.7.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
There is no issue more central to Donald Trump’s campaign than immigration. There is also no issue on which he and his disciples fabricate more egregiously. Rudy Giuliani says Hillary Clinton is for open borders. She’s not. Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., who regularly relies on faulty data from anti-immigrant extremist groups such as FAIR, was at it again, claiming in his speech Monday night that 350,000 illegal immigrants come over the border each year. Nonsense. The Washington Post’s Fact Checker...

Rampell: Immigrants in America pull up the ladder after them 19.7.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
WASHINGTON • It’s not just native-born Americans expressing nativist sentiments these days. Somehow, it’s immigrants, too. “I think that enough immigrants entered this country,” Rosa Berezovskaya, an 86-year-old immigrant who came to the United States from Kiev in 2003, told the Forward in a story that ran last week. “We also came here as immigrants in our own time. But we can’t let in crooks, we can’t let in untrustworthy people that will cause us problems,” said 82-year-old Olga Dubova, who em...

Eleven Troubling Facts About Trump's VP, Mike Pence 15.7.2016 Truthout - All Articles
Indiana Gov. Mike Pence speaking at a Donald Trump rally in Westfield, Indiana on July 12, 2016. (Photo: Darryl Smith / Flickr ) A lot of people anticipated that Donald Trump would choose a running mate that could help him balance out the ticket, but that does not appear to be the case. Though he won't officially announce his VP pick until Friday, multiple sources have confirmed that the presumptive Republican nominee will select Indiana Governor Mike Pence. Choosing Pence is pretty much Trump's way of doubling down on the intolerance and far-right ideology that has characterized his campaign thus far. Heck, fellow governors have  labeled Pence  a "bigot," meaning we've got an all-bigot ticket on our hands! If that's not alarming enough, here are some other reasons to panic about this choice: 1. He's Made Headlines With His "Religious Freedom" Law When the governor signed the state's controversial  "right to discriminate" bill  into law, he defended it as a good thing for the state. He craftily pretended ...

Rampell: Republicans alienate 'aliens' at their peril 15.7.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
WASHINGTON • The Republican Party had a chance to disavow Donald Trump’s xenophobia and nativism. Instead, the GOP doubled down. In the new 2016 Republican platform, delegates not only promised a wall along the southern border; they also decided to replace the term “illegal immigrants” with the more pejorative, dehumanizing epithet “illegal aliens.” If history is any guide, these choices could prove very, very costly. It’s true that Americans, or at least a vocal subset of Americans, h...

To the editor: I find it utterly terrifying but not surprising that Donald Trump has allied himself with the infamous Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Ariz., who never allows the constitutional protection against unlawful search and seizure to get in his way and dresses jail inmates in pink...

Divided over immigration, one of Britain's most diverse cities voted for 'Brexit' 3.7.2016 LA Times: Commentary

The sari shops, halal confectioneries and Sikh temples along Soho Road in Birmingham, Britain’s second-largest city, wouldn’t seem like fertile ground for anti-immigrant sentiment.

But residents of this famously multiethnic enclave echo many of the concerns expressed by white voters over the pressures...
