Another congressional freshman, Rep. Jesus Garcia of Illinois, is an immigrant from Mexico, and very anti-Trump, yet didn’t have to face the kind of scorn from the President faced by his four colleagues. Hmmm...🤔

If you’re watching the Tour de France: One of the most remarkable changes in the pro peloton is how many more riders are comfortable being interviewed in English. For American viewers, it changes the experience.

No, Mr. President, "If you're not happy here, you can leave" does not make it better. On this one, I'll side with naturalized immigrant, ambassador, general, and US Senator Carl Schurz: “My country, right or wrong; if right, to be kept right; and if wrong, to be set right.”

@ianbremmer Their internal messaging is backs to the wall, righteous remnant in a fallen society, end timesy stuff. It makes perfect sense that sense of threat+victory=better yield from available voters. To me anyway.

@brianstelter @katierogersBy the way, NOT because I think none of them went. But social scientists will tell you when you use self-reporting, church attendance is exaggerated by Americans. (And yes, I was there this morning. Two baptisms!)

What we'll inevitably do, is get all distracted by the use of the word "shithole," instead of focusing on the embedded sentiment: That the United States is better off if Norwegians come here than Nigerians. Incidentally...Nigerians are THE most highly educated immigrants to US.

a) Ask yourself the question, "What are we doing here?" b) Then ask yourself, "Does this person help us do it? Do we increase public knowledge and understanding o the issues? c) If your answer is "no," stop booking her! (BTW, It's not even-handedness. It's adversarial theater.)

Who's he kidding? No amount of "assimilation" (whatever that is) will ever be judged "enough." That's the trick.That's the game. Permanent foreignness, regardless of what you actually do. The majority of Latinos in the US, 2/3, are native-born, most are English-speaking. Capisce?

Oceans are small all of a sudden? When Puerto Rico was in deadly crisis you were talking about how hard it is to get the world's most formidably equipped armed forces to a place about a thousand miles from Florida. Surrounded by water. Big water. Ocean water.

From the end of the Civil War to the Voting Rights Act? 100 years. Less than 50 years later a coordinated, relentless campaign worked to neutralize the protections of the Act, because—we’re now told—no one does that stuff anymore.
