Donald Trump wins over Hispanics despite strict immigration stance

He was told being strict on illegal immigration would doom him among Hispanic voters. Yet President Trump has defied their predictions, from the moment he delivered his iconic address to the Conservative Political Action Conference in 2013 — warning the Republican Party that legalizing 11 million illegal immigrants was political suicide — through the 2016 presidential election and into the White House. Now nine months out from his second Election Day, and despite a tenure in the White House that has involved building a border wall, stepping up deportations and insulting some Latin American nations as “s—hole” countries, Mr. Trump is as strong as ever among Hispanic voters, according to the polls.

Mike Bloomberg should stop and question his reversal on ‘stop, question and frisk’ – By Heather Mac Donald

In March 2019, Mike Bloomberg said he would not run for president because he was not willing to engage in an “apology tour.” By contrast, scoffed the former New York mayor, Joe Biden had “apologized for the one piece of legislation which is actually a pretty good anti-crime bill,” as well as for being “white, male, and over 50,” in Bloomberg’s words.

NYC Mayor finally admits bail reform linked to spike in crime

Something rather remarkable happened in New York City on Friday, though it largely flew under the media radar. Ever since New York’s new bail reform and criminal justice reform laws went into effect at the beginning of the year, crime rates have been rising steadily in all but two categories of major crimes. (Murder and rape remain at their previous levels, at least for now.) Beyond that, it’s possible, though not definitively established, that the criminal justice reform law led to a victim/witness in an upcoming gang violence trial being murdered on Long Island.
