Holly Richardson: By picking Herrod, GOP delegates may have accidentally killed the caucus system 24.6.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
When Republican delegates elected Chris Herrod to be their nominee last Saturday, they may have ironically delivered the death knell to the caucus system. Chances are very good that the winner of the August primary will be a candidate who got on the ballot via signatures, proving that signature-gathering candidates can and do win elections without needing to do well at or even attend convention.

When Sue Krentz was growing up in southern Arizona, about 30 miles from the Mexican border, migrants would wander into the front yard of her parents’ modest ranch house and ask to sweep the steps or mow the lawn.

Nobody asked about their immigration status. It was the 1960s, long before the area...

AP FACT CHECK: Trump's solar-power brainwave was borrowed 23.6.2017 AP Business
WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Donald Trump is crediting himself with the idea of building a Mexico border wall of solar panels. But that looks to be a borrowed brainwave; others pitched a solar wall back when he was a skeptic of tapping power from the sun....

Jennifer Rubin: Nixon went to China. Maybe Trump will go for ‘amnesty’ 19.6.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
President Richard Nixon, the quintessential Cold Warrior, could pull off an opening to China because his anti-communist credentials were never in doubt. President Donald Trump, the quintessential anti-immigrant xenophobe who called Mexicans “murders,” exploited victims of crimes allegedly committed by illegal immigrants and vowed to enact mass deportation, could be the one to bury the anti-immigrant right’s agenda and its incessant crusade against “amnesty,” which amounts to any immigration stan... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>
