There are two Hispanic Americans campaigning for the GOP nomination for the presidency, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio. They have many similarities; they are both US senators, Cruz from Texas and Rubio from Florida. Both are sons...
While the economic need for substantive immigration reform is crystal clear, politics and partisanship have fogged the issue. Disruptive factions within both parties in Congress have prevented the advancement of any...

An enduring argument against reforming the immigration system is that new immigrants will become a solid voting bloc for the Democratic party and support liberal economic policies. Neither of these assertions is true. New...
