  • The gap on Hispanic outreach Dec 23, 2014 5:01 AM
    Columnist Ruben Navarrette: Sometimes you’ll have a disagreement with someone but you’re not that far apart. My argument with Dallas-based radio host Chris Salcedo, who has a weekend show on The Blaze network, is not like that. On one issue, the gap is enormous: How should Republicans approach Hispanic voters? The question is tearing the GOP apart, as some candidates engage in Hispanic outreach and others disparage the very idea.

     
  • The left’s convenient villain Dec 16, 2014 5:01 AM
    Columnist Ruben Navarrette: “I’m known as the architect of torture,” Alberto Gonzales told me by phone from Nashville, where the former U.S. attorney general is now a lawyer in private practice and dean of the College of Law at Belmont University. Anyone saddled with that title must be evil and sadistic. Gonzales is neither.

     
  • Flammable news coverage Dec 7, 2014 5:01 AM
    Columnist Ruben Navarrette: It would be nice if, in watching the news, my kids were not bombarded with messages that help those who misbehave avoid accountability. Like “Admit nothing.” Or “Blame someone else.” Or “Deflect responsibility.” Or “Play the victim.”

     
  • Dropping the anchor on immigration Nov 25, 2014 5:01 AM
    Columnist Ruben Navarrette: The politically correct should spend less time telling people what to think and more time forcing themselves to think. Case in point: Immigration reform proponents and other immigrant advocates despise the term “anchor babies” — and with good reason. They hate it when politicians or the media use the phrase, and they will picket, protest or pester anyone who does.

     
  • The missing students of Mexico Nov 16, 2014 5:01 AM
    Columnist Ruben Navarrette: NewsMexico is suffering a national tragedy, the details of which make the Day of the Dead look like a walk in the park. And, for some Mexican officials, keeping up with the gruesome details can be exhausting.

     
  • GOP at crossroads with Hispanics Nov 9, 2014 5:01 AM
    Columnist Ruben Navarrette: Republicans are enjoying a well-deserved victory lap. But, when it comes to the touchy subjects of Hispanic outreach and immigration reform, they still seem a tad confused about the road ahead.

     
  • Conservatives’ short memories on school protests Sep 30, 2014 1:01 AM
    Columnist Ruben Navarrette: What’s really at the heart of that story from 2010 where five students at Live Oak High School in Morgan Hill, Calif., conspired to wear T-shirts bearing the American flag? Was it patriotism? Or petulance?

     
  • 10 maxims on education, from three vantage points Sep 16, 2014 1:01 AM
    Columnist Ruben Navarrette Jr.: With students going back to school, it’s a good time to review the 10 lessons that Americans should have learned if they were paying attention during the last few decades of debating education reform. Once a student and also a teacher, I am now the parent of school-age children. So I can see this debate from three vantage points.

     
  • Looking for a work ethic in new economy Sep 9, 2014 1:01 AM
    Columnist Ruben Navarrette: Long gone seem the days when people were glad to have a job, and grateful to their employer for providing one.

     
  • Tell the story, don’t be it Aug 24, 2014 5:01 AM
    Columnist Ruben Navarrette: With reporters being threatened, arrested, manhandled, berated, shot with rubber bullets and pelted with tear gas projectiles, it is tempting to declare that law enforcement officers in Ferguson are waging a war against the media. Yet, even thinking this way shows that many reporters have lost their way in covering this story.

     
  • GOP creating its own nightmare over ‘dreamers’ Aug 10, 2014 1:01 AM
    Columnist Ruben Navarrette: I once used the term “spoiled brats” to describe “dreamers,” those young undocumented immigrants brought here by their parents.Yet now I think the real spoiled brats are those House Republicans who -- with no skill for leading the downtrodden -- settle for punishing the defenseless.

     
  • Wrong script on immigration Aug 5, 2014 1:01 AM
    Columnist Ruben Navarrette: Just because you’re well-known doesn’t mean you’re well-informed. Case in point: Eva Longoria, Mexican-American actress, social commentator and loyal Democrat who once mocked Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida for having “silly” ideas. What makes Longoria look silly is that she believes that other Americans care what she thinks about the crisis involving Central American child refugees crossing the U.S.-Mexico border into her native Texas.

     
  • Skip the comparisons with Mexico Jul 29, 2014 5:01 AM
    Columnist Ruben Navarrette: Almost any discussion of how the United States treats uninvited visitors — whether they be child refugees looking for shelter or adult immigrants looking for jobs — will eventually get to the point where someone asks: “What about Mexico?”

     
  • America the heartless Jul 22, 2014 5:01 AM
    Columnist Ruben Navarrette: Before it’s too late, Americans need to turn their attention back to the children. The lost children of Central America have themselves gotten lost in the fog of debate over what should become of them. Americans started off talking about the kids, but quickly meandered into distracting conversations about politics, blame, history, ideology and government funding.

     
  • Cold and calculating on immigration Jul 16, 2014 5:01 AM
    Columnist Ruben Navarrette: Whenever President Obama acts unilaterally on immigration reform — and it’s not often enough — the reactions on both the right and the left are so predictable.

  • How to define an American Jul 3, 2014 5:01 AM
    Columnist Ruben Navarrette: It’s a summer night in Washington. On the Mall, across from the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial, people are sitting on lawn chairs and huddled on blankets staring at a white screen. The feature: “Documented,” the new film by journalist Jose Antonio Vargas, one of most famous undocumented immigrants in the country — and one of the most outspoken.

     
  • Hillary Clinton’s immigration misstep Jun 29, 2014 5:01 AM
    Columnist Ruben Navarrette: We already knew the immigration issue was a tough one for Republicans. They have a hard time opposing legal status for the undocumented without sounding anti-Hispanic. They insist their leaders take loyalty oaths to oppose an “amnesty,” alienating them from the mainstream. They have to balance supporting a business community that wants more immigration with coddling a nativist wing that wants less.

     
  • The saga of the border kids Jun 24, 2014 5:01 AM
    Columnist Ruben Navarrette: Americans are trying to get a handle on the border kids — and what President Obama has called an “urgent humanitarian situation” along the U.S.-Mexico border. Americans want to know why, according to U.S. immigration officials, more than 47,000 young people — most of them from Central America — have streamed across the U.S.-Mexico border in the last eight months.

     
  • The value of a push May 29, 2014 5:01 AM
    Columnist Ruben Navarrette: A little girl can break her daddy’s heart with one question. A few days ago, my 9-year-old daughter — noticing I was in a suit and not my usual, casual attire — asked me where I was going, and I told her. I had been invited to judge a high school debate competition. She asked what that was all about, and I told her it is where two teams square off and make well-constructed arguments, trying to convince a judge of their point of view. She asked, “Can girls do that?”
