Column: The boundaries of identity
SAN DIEGO — Who’s afraid of a little ‘ol hyphen? Apparently, some of my readers. What sets off many of them is when I refer to myself as a “Mexican-American.” What sets me off is when they have the audacity to confront me over it. The latest skirmish started with a column...

Column: On immigration, too much denial
By Ruben Navarrette, Washington Post Writers Group SAN DIEGO — Fact: Immigration reform is dead for the rest of this year, and probably for years to come. Fiction: It died because Republicans don’t like immigrants and thus have no interest in giving those who are undocumented...

Column: Joining the conversation, reluctantly
SAN DIEGO — Now that the George Zimmerman murder trial is over, let’s hope we’ve heard the last of the awkward term “white Hispanic.” For the most part, it is a media concoction that has only served to stir resentment from both whites and Hispanics.

Column: For Napolitano, another makeover
SAN DIEGO — Welcome to the political version of “Extreme Makeover.” This is where elected and appointed officials scrub their records, using revisionist history to remake themselves into the kinder and gentler people they could have been if ambition hadn’t gotten in the ...

SAN DIEGO -- Dear Heritage Foundation, you're not helping. I assume you agree with the proposition that -- demographics being what they are -- it would be a good thing to thaw out the frosty relationship between Latinos and Republicans.

Column: Reforming immigration the right way
SAN DIEGO -- Gracias, Marco Rubio. Americans are being fed rosy scenarios about how quickly and easily Congress will pass immigration reform. They need a reality check, and the Florida senator delivered it. If someone had just started paying attention to the immigration debate over...

Column: Dancing a two-step on immigration
