Yet Another Republican Debate Fails to Fully Address Immigration Chaos

During the latest GOP debate viewers had a right to expect more beef on the immigration issue than was offered in the previous three – all lacking adequate solutions for our nation’s immigration anarchy. No such luck. Yet again, the issue elicited incomplete and insufficient answers, proving that the candidates – like the incumbent president – haven’t yet got the wake up call that immigration is a hot issue – a jobs issue – for unemployed Americans looking for work, and a critical one for improving our economy at large.

Check out our analysis (written by Bob Dane and Kristen Williamson) on the latest GOP debate in our opinion piece on Let’s hope that future debates give a better idea of where these candidates stand on this key issue.

About Author


Bob Dane, the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR)'s Executive Director, has been with FAIR since 2006. His deep belief is that immigration is the most transformational determinant of where we are heading as a nation and that our policies must be reformed in the public interest. Over many years on thousands of radio, TV and print interviews, Bob has made the case that unless immigration is regulated and sensibly reduced, it will be difficult for America to reduce unemployment, increase wages, improve health care and education and heighten national security. Prior to joining FAIR, Bob spent twenty years in network radio, marketing and communications after an earlier career in policy and budgeting within the Reagan Administration. Bob has a degree from George Mason University in Public Administration and Management.
