Carlos Galindo – First Nationally Syndicated Radio Political Talk In Spanish & English Has Harsh Words For Speaker Boehner / RNC Priebus On ImmigrationThursday, November 14th, 2013
Carlos Galindo is the first nationally syndicated political talk show host that conducts his show in both Spanish and in English. Essentially he has a wider audience that includes the ears of thousands of immigrants, Spanish-speaking individuals and Chicano Mexican-Americans across the United States.
He was local for several years but began his national program this year on November 5, 2013. He is very patriotic and considers himself left of center on politics and he believes extremism on both sides of the aisle is bad for our Nation.
Earlier this morning and on the heels of Speaker Boehner Ruling Out Negotiations on Immigration, Carlos Galindo tells his audience the consequences of Republican Majority Leader Boehner turning his back on the Latino community.
Now make no mistake, this political talk show host will not tell us to “sit out” elections. Instead he will tell his listeners across the nation to vote out anti-immigrant politicians.
Make no mistake, this is not all of Speaker Boehner’s fault either. For instance, On November 8, 2013, Politico wrote about Priebus having a “gut” feeling that the House will indeed pass an immigration overhaul in the next 14 months. That’s right: 14 months. In other words, Priebus wants to wait til after the 2014 elections. But the Republican Party “14″ month immigration delay may cost the GOP “2014.”
I asked Galindo’s for his views with regard to Reince’s 14 month immigration signal and he said:
Reince Priebus is out of touch with minorities. Priebus was recruited as representative of a typical white man in America to lead the national GOP. When President Obama took office, the RNC decided to kick the black RNC Chairman Michael Steele to the curb. They used the black man and tossed him aside for Priebus. To me it’s clear, Priebus doesn’t care about Immigration issues, although he is the son of a White African Immigrant. It’s these first generation Immigrants that are the first to turn their back on other Immigrants. I’m not sure what Reince’s mother taught him about Africa and apartheid, and it’s precisely that, that has me worried.
I just learned something. I had no idea Reince was the son of an immigrant.
If Reince Priebus and the Republican Party are listening — and I know that they are, they ought to have learned the lessons of 2012 by now. The GOP can do things the easy way or the hard way. Either they pass immigration reform in 2013, or pay the political consequences in 2014. If they wait until 2014, we are afraid their hostility on immigration will remain fresh in our Mexican American / Latino minds for the remainder of the 2014 election year.
You can bet your bottom peso on that one.
