ISIS Terrorist Attack in Paris November 13, 2015: The Impact on the 2016 Presidential Candidates?

11/15/2015  articles

The Issue: Immigration

Which one of the Republican candidates for president would best handle the issue of Immigration?

According to a recent Roll Call poll Donald Trump leads the pack with a whopping 49%; Marco Rubio 10%; Ted Cruz 7%; Jeb Bush 5%; Ben Carson 5%; Mike Huckabee 3%; Rand Paul 2%; Chris Christie, Carly Fiorina, Lindsey Graham, and John Kasich less than 1%.

The Trump way on immigration suits Republicans and Independents who lean the Republican way. Republicans need to make gains with the Hispanic voters. This could be a problem with Trump’s hard-line stance on immigration.

Cruz and Rubio… put on the boxing gloves , Washington Post, Nov. 13, 2015 Katie Zezima and David Weigel: “Cruz blasted Rubio for his support of a failed immigration reform bill that would have granted a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants telling conservative talk show host Laura Ingraham that Rubio had opposed adding provisions to the bill that would have strengthened border security”

“Rubio pushed back on those claims Thursday, saying that the bill had the correct security components but was waylaid by voter mistrust and arguing that he and Cruz shared ‘almost all the same views on immigration…It’s going to be impossible to move forward until you can prove to people that illegal immigration is under control.”

What about the Democrats?

  • Obama declared ISIS ‘contained’ just hours before Paris attack.
  • ISIS claims responsibility for Paris attack.
  • One of the deceased terrorists involved in the massacre was a Syrian refugee with a Syrian passport on his body. He was registered as a refugee in Greece.
  • The Democrat debate to be hosted by CBS to get another perspective since the Paris attack.
  • Obama wants to bring in thousands of Syrian refugees. More than 70% are young men. How will these refugees by vetted? Will this satisfy Americans with decreasing trust in the government?
  • Do Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders support Obama’s position?

FBI is looking into 1000 active ISIS probes inside the USA.

Is the Paris massacre a game-changer with respect to immigration? You bet it is. Are the 2016 candidates paying attention? You bet they are. Voters in the primary elections and finals will be watching and casting their votes accordingly.

GOP insiders are getting antsy as outsiders defy predictions , Washington Post, Philip Rucker, Robert Costa: “The rest of the GOP field is still wishing upon a star that Trump and Carson are going to self-destruct….but they have to be made to self-destruct” said Eric Fehrnstrom, a former advisor to 2012 nominee Mitt Romney….For months, the GOP professional class assumed Trump and Carson would fade with time. Voters would get serious…after seeing the outsiders share a stage with more experienced politicians after the first debate….or when summer turned to fall. None of that happened, of course, leaving establishment figures disoriented.”

Attention GOP party leaders and insiders. Don’t fight the voters. Listen to them. Work with them. Get their votes.
