Rupert Murdoch: “Republicans Have To Ignore 5 Per Cent Nativists And Embrace Hispanics.” In a November 8 post to his Twitter account, Rupert Murdoch, the chairman and CEO of News Corp., Fox News’ parent company, encouraged Republicans to ignore “5 per cent nativists” and embrace Hispanics as well as the “best Asian and European graduates.”
• Sean Hannity “Evolved” On Immigration After Romney Loss, Endorsed “Pathway To Citizenship.”
Host Sean Hannity said on his November 8 radio show that he has “evolved” on immigration and endorsed a “pathway to citizenship”: We’ve got to get rid of the immigration issue altogether, it’s simple for me to fix it. I think you control the border first, you create a pathway for those people that are here. You don’t say “You’ve got to go home.” And that is a position that I’ve evolved on. Because, you know what, it just — it’s gotta be resolved.
• Laura Ingraham After Romney Loss:
On the November 7 edition of Fox News’ America Live, Fox contributor Laura Ingraham told host Megyn Kelly that “the language of dealing with Latinos has to be changed” in a discussion about how the GOP needs to “move to the center” on issues like immigration.
