The Republican Response to Obama's SOTU Also Includes a Rebuttal for Donald Trump

CBS reported that the Republican response to President Obama's last State of the Union also appears to go against GOP front-runner Donald Trump. CBS wrote:

“The Republican response to the President Obama’s State of the Union address Tuesday evening appears to rebut… some of the policies espoused by Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, according to excerpts released by House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wisconsin.”

One of Ryan's excerpts has South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley discussing immigration policies by saying:

“I am the proud daughter of Indian immigrants who reminded my brothers, my sister and me every day how blessed we were to live in this country…My story is really not much different from millions of other Americans. Immigrants have been coming to our shores for generations to live the dream that is America…Today, we live in a time of threats like few others in recent memory. During anxious times, it can be tempting to follow the siren call of the angriest voices. We must resist that temptation. No one who is willing to work hard, abide by our laws, and love our traditions should ever feel unwelcome in this country.”

In essence, Haley is talking about the open-borders philosophy where any employer should have the ability to hire any worker, from any country. Yet, a Rasmussen poll shows that 65% of conservative voters say the United States should not let in any refugees from the entire Middle East. So, it's a question why Ryan's strategy would continue to be an affront to its own voter base.

In fact, in a November interview with Sean Hannity, Ryan said curbing Muslim migration is “not who we are.” In another interview, Marco Rubio told Hannity, “We’ve never had a religious test, and I would just say to you that to have a religious test would violate the Constitution.”

The Senate Immigration Subcommittee also recently issued a chart book conveying how if visa issuances are not stalled, the U.S. will issue more green cards in the next ten years than the population of Iowa, New Hampshire, and Nikki Haley’s state of South Carolina combined.
