Ruben Navarrette supports lowering U.S. wages to global levels - 11/27/09

Ruben Navarrette offers a "Special to CNN" called "U.S. workers can't hide from competition" [1] which can be summarized thusly: "suck it up, American workers! You have no right not to have your wages fall to Bangladeshi levels". He discusses Luis Gutierrez' bogus "hire Americans first" provision, and says:

Ruben Navarrette smears, misleads about Lou Dobbs (Enrique Morones almost co-writer) - 11/17/09

Ruben Navarrette of the San Diego Union Tribune offers an anti-Lou Dobbs editorial (, which includes this in the middle:

Arnold Schwarzenegger plays Nazi card against opponents of the massive illegal activity he supports - 06/18/09

Ruben Navarrette recounts a recent meeting that Arnold Schwarzenegger held with the San Diego Union Tribune editorial board (link), during which California's corrupt governor said this about those who, unlike him, oppose massive illegal immigration: "And what we have to do is, we always have to fight that because it's in all of us - prejudice... So what we have to do, since we have a certain level of intelligence, is to look at this and ask, 'Where does this lead when we go and blame certain people?' ...I come from Germany... So I'm a little bit more sensitive about it because it's led to...

Juan Hernandez: McCain wishes he could have pushed my agenda (and, Ruben Navarrette is soft on divided loyalties) - 12/07/08

Ruben Navarrette writes about John McCain's Hispanic outreach director Juan Hernandez, a dual citizen (U.S.-Mexico) with clearly divided loyalties who's a former cabinet-level official with the Mexican government. In Navarrette's creative re-telling of McCain's loss (link), he could have won if McCain's advisors had only let him be himself. I.e., by supporting Hernandez' agenda. "I remember a conference call with GOP leaders from Nevada, after McCain had become the nominee," Hernandez told me recently. "I heard them telling McCain on the conference call, 'Well, we still need some reassurance...

Judy Bachrach/Vanity Fair smears Lou Dobbs - 08/08/08

Freelance writer and Vanity Fair contributor Judy Bachrach offers a smear of Lou Dobbs in "Lou Doubts" ( It's yet another example of the illegal activity-supporting establishment trying to reduce his influence in order to profit from illegal activity in one way or another.

Vicente Fox "Revolution of Hope" co-author: Bush-linked Rob Allyn - 10/13/07

The co-author of Vicente Fox's book "Revolution of Hope" - which he's currently on tour promoting - is none other than Mexico's very own bought-and-paid-for propagandist, Rob Allyn. In 2005 he was paid $720,000 by the Mexican government to help show their side of massive immigration from that country.

National Council of La Raza won't denounce Elvira Arellano (Ruben Navarrette) - 08/26/07

Even Ruben Navarrette - someone brazen enough to write a column defending his friend and Mexico's propagandist Rob Allyn - doesn't support the case of Elvira Arellano.

Laugh: Cynthia Tucker wins Pulitzer Prize for Commentary - 04/16/07

Cynthia Tucker isn't the worst commentator on immigration matters, and that's only partly because she mostly comments on other things.

Ramos/Compean: who's on the Bush administration's side? - 02/08/07

I have a feeling that it won't be too very long before even more truth comes out about the case of the two Border Patrol agents (Ramos/Compean) who strongly appear to have been railroaded by their own government. So, let's take a look at the short, select list of some of those who've supported the Bush administration's side of things:

Ruben Navarrette, disingenuous race-baiter - 08/09/06

The San Diego Union-Tribune's Ruben Navarrette Jr. offers a disingenuous, race-baiting hit piece on U.S. Rep.

Dave Montgomery of KRT on Rob Allyn, Mexico's propagandist - 01/28/06

Knight-Ridder's Dave Montgomery offers a very standard sketch of Rob Allyn, the Dallas PR consultant who's been hired to spread Mexican propaganda in the U.S.: "Mexico hires public relations firm to improve its image in U.S." There is absolutely nothing new about Allyn in this article, but if you aren't familiar with his story check it out.

Ruben Navarrette Jr. defends his friend, Rob Allyn - 01/04/06

I'm not surprised to learn that San Diego Union-Tribune columnist Ruben Navarrette Jr. is a friend of Rob Allyn, the Dallas PR consultant who's been hired to spread Mexican propaganda in the U.S. ...Mexican President Vicente Fox tapped my friend, Dallas-based political consultant Rob Allyn, to be Mexico's goodwill ambassador...

Ruben Navarrette Jr. or Vicente Fox? - 10/20/05

The column "A city about to change colors" (signonsandiego . com/news/op-ed/navarrette/20051019-9999-lz1e19navar.html) says it was written by San Diego Union-Tribute editorialist Ruben Navarrette Jr., but it reads like it was written by Vicente Fox.

"Immigrants find a friend in The Governator" - 10/06/04

From Ruben Navarrette of the Dallas Morning News: ...Americans shouldn't be going out of their way to accommodate illegal immigrants - or when you really get down to it, those Americans who employ them - by making life in the United States comfortable for people who shouldn't be here. I'm not sure all immigrants get that. After Schwarzenegger's veto, a television news crew for a Spanish-language network descended on the streets of Los Angeles to gauge public reaction.
