The Nation’s Approach to Growing Immigration Concerns
As a political expert and commentator for U.S. News and World Reports, Fox News Channel, and NBC, one of the emphases of Mr. Barone’s commentary has been immigration. Barone takes a positive view of contemporary immigration into the US, explaining that as he sees it, Hispanic immigration has parallels to the experience of many immigrant groups in our nation’s past, and that, given the right circumstances, that current and future Hispanics and other immigrants can become Americanized and assimilated.
National Politics and Our Presidents
Combining his knowledge of the history and development of national politics with his inside look at presidential races, Mr. Barone offers a candid and compelling account of how the current political climate in the United States has evolved and where we can expect to go next.
