  • Emanuel’s about-face on immigration Jul 19, 2012 12:00 AM
    Columnist Ruben Navarrette: If Chicago follows Cook County's lead and puts more restraints on local law enforcement, it could wind up facing punishment of its own by the Obama administration. That would be awkward, to say the least.

  • Harry Reid and the race card Jul 18, 2012 12:00 AM

  • Get used to stalemates Jul 26, 2011 12:00 AM
    Leading up to the 2012 election, both political parties have trouble with their bases. Republicans must contend with The Dissatisfied, and Democrats with The Disappointed.

  • No kids? No kidding Jul 18, 2011 12:00 AM
    In your private space, you can do what you want and ask anyone who comes into that space to do what you want as well: “Before you enter my home, please take off your shoes.” But when you step into a public space, you have to give up any expectation that you’ll be able to control the behavior of others to make yourself more comfortable.

  • Hollywood’s Latino snub Mar 8, 2011 12:00 AM
    Ask any of the small but growing number of Latino writers, directors, producers and actors who don’t get a fair shot at jobs in show business even though the industry is based in a city that is nearly 50 percent Latino. The latest insult was the casting of Depp to play Francisco “Pancho” Villa

  • In praise of leaders with backboneMar 3, 2011 12:00 AM
    In politics, the norm is spineless politicians who avoid tough subjects that could jeopardize their jobs by stirring the masses.

  • Where are the Latino journalists going? Feb 24, 2011 12:00 AM
    What some critics call the media “brownout” is happening at a most inconvenient time. The big story outside the newsroom is the phenomenal growth of the Latino population in the United States over the last 10 years.

  • On immigration, actions louder than words Feb 14, 2011 12:00 AM
    And the problem is not just that Obama broke his promise to make immigration reform a top priority in his first term. From what I’m hearing, what really concerns many Latinos is that Obama is moving in the opposite direction.

  • Education reform being left behind Feb 9, 2011 12:00 AM
    The new Arne Duncan seems to be trying to save his job in a second term — if there is one — by placating his critics. And what better way than to engage in one of their favorite pastimes — bashing the education reform law that teachers unions love to hate: No Child Left Behind.

  • Let's stop ignoring the fire next door Feb 2, 2011 12:00 AM
    The American people can't seem to focus on Mexico, even though their fingerprints are all over the drug war. We consume the narcotics that keep the cartels flush with cash, and we supply the guns and bullets that drive up the body count.

  • The curse of good intentions Jan 27, 2011 12:00 AM
    Polls over the years have shown that the top three issues for Latinos are always the same: education, jobs and health care. Those aren't Latino issues but American ones.

  • A rush to judgment — again Jan 17, 2011 12:00 AM
    We live at a time when Latino immigrants are made into scapegoats for everything from street crime to traffic jams to failing schools. Why not a murder spree?

  • Wrongheaded again on illegal immigrationJan 3, 2011 12:00 AM
    California and Arizona share a common border and a common destiny, despite the reluctance of each to admit it and best efforts of each to avoid it.

  • A plot twist in demise of the Dream ActDec 28, 2010 12:00 AM
    The Senate works just like any crime drama. First comes the murder. Then comes the cover-up intended to throw sleuths off the trail. So, who really killed the Dream Act? The liberal media, immigrant advocacy groups and Latino Democrats assure us it was the Senate Republicans.

  • Obama's Jekyll and Hyde routineDec 20, 2010 12:00 AM
    President Obama can't seem to make up his mind whether he wants to work with Republicans or fight with them. One minute, he wants compromise. The next, he forces confrontation.

  • For Obama’s critics, grow upDec 13, 2010 12:00 AM
    This is how bad things have gotten in Washington, and how broken our politics has become. President Obama is being unmercifully and unfairly pummeled by congressional Democrats, labor union leaders and liberals in the media for brokering a deal with Republicans that gave up something and got something in return.

  • How GOP could win over LatinosDec 6, 2010 12:00 AM
    Republican elected officials could use coaching on how to talk about the immigration issue and, just as importantly, how not to talk about it. There’s a huge need. When talking about immigration, some Republicans deserve encouragement. Some deserve scoldings. And some deserve a trip to the woodshed.

  • GOP has a potential new starNov 28, 2010 12:00 AM
    Poised to make history by becoming the first female governor of New Mexico and the first Latina to be a governor of any state, Susana Martinez will easily be one of the country’s most consequential elected officials. But, as you learn from talking with her, she is also one of the most fascinating.

  • Seeking a place to call home in politicsNov 21, 2010 12:00 AM
    Many Latinos have become disgruntled with both political parties, and I can easily see why. One ignores us while the other seems intent on driving us away. The last straw was when Democrats flunked immigration reform, then tried to fool Latinos into thinking Republicans were to blame an easy trick to pull off given how often the GOP flirts with nativism.

  • GOP would be wise to listen to PalinNov 17, 2010 12:00 AM
    I promised myself that I’d stop defending Sarah Palin. But it’s a hard habit to break. While I found the former Alaska governor refreshing during the 2008 presidential campaign, she has been a disappointment since then. Instead of hitting the books and learning the issues, Palin ditched class, resigned her post and concentrated on making money.
