So after advocating(?) on behalf of the Republican candidate with the most restrictive view of immigration, Jen Rubin now has some advice about what Republicans ought to do concerning immigration reform:
The next election, if Republicans are to win, must be waged with this wise counsel: “[T]he GOP seems willfully clueless. There’s a reason there are so few minorities in the party. . . . Compassionate immigration reform, including a path to citizenship, should be the centerpiece of a conservative party’s agenda. Marginalize or banish those who in any way make African Americans, gays, single women or any other human being feel unwelcome in a party that cherishes the values of limited government, low taxes and freedom. A large swath of conservative-minded Americans are Democrats and independents by default.”
This should probably be filed under the general topic of ignoring immediate post-election policy advice. It’s weird how no one ever thinks the path to electoral salvation goes through policies they don’t like.
