State of the Debate
George Pyle
George Pyle has been a newspaper writer in Kansas, Utah, Upstate New York, and now Utah again, for more than 30 years - most of it as an editorial writer and columnist. Now on his second tour of duty on The Salt Lake Tribune Editorial Board, he has also done a stretch as a talk radio host, published a book on the ongoing flaws of U.S.agricultural policy and, in 1998, was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Editorial Writing. His most active bookmarks are Andrew Sullivan, Christopher Hitchens and Tina Brown. And he still thinks the Internet can be used for intelligent conversation and uplifting ideas.

Even Granite Staters ought to welcome immigration reforms — Keene (N.H.) Sentinel Editorial

... It’s hard to imagine what the GOP could have done to demonstrate that it was finished with nativism. From endorsing state laws that allow police to go after anyone who merely looks foreign to ruling out pathways to citizenship for any of the 12 million immigrants in the country illegally, the Republican party clearly was out of touch. ...

Immigration indigestion — New York Post Editorial

... Most Latinos are fundamentally conservative, in the sense of traditional values; the various Hispanic communities are church- and family-oriented. And Latinos are not afraid of hard work. In short, they would seem to be a natural fit for the GOP.

But, like many other Americans, they remain skeptical of a party that has been portrayed, not always unfairly, as favoring wealthy white men over poor, more darkly hued newcomers. ...
