Bloggings: A Voice of Reason on the Right Supports Immigration Reform. Will Republicans Listen? By Roger Algase

Rate this Entry

During the 2012 presidential campaign, there was no writer who was more of a pro-Romney partisan than Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin. Her "Right Turn" blog followed the Republican party line so slavishly that her columns read like Romney campaign press releases. 


Needless to say, there was little, if any, criticism of Mitt Romney's "self-deportation" disaster in Rubin's comments. But all of this changed on November 7. Jennifer Rubin was one of the very first Republican columnists to come out and say that if the party hoped to win national elections in the future, it would have to change, not just its marketing and its candidates, but its policies.


Nowhere has Jennifer Rubin made this point more clearly than on immigration reform. The following is from her post: Why should Republicans favor immigration reform? (www.washingtonpost.com April 28):


"Immigration reform is the most important of the current debates for Republicans, more so than taxes or entitlement reform, as its outcome will set the trajectory for the party for years to come. Will the GOP innovate, ignore reactionary voices, pursue a reform agenda and embrace 21st-century America? Or will it hunker down and insist that the only problem is insufficient volume and ferociousness, entranced by the illusion that all it needs to survive as a national party is turning out more and more older, white men?"


The future of immigration reform may depend on how many Republicans in Congress, and especially in the House of Representatives, are willing to listen to Jennifer Rubin's advice.
