The State of Republican Affairs

What does it say about the Republican Party that the Cato Institute - which leans hard right and libertarian - is calling out the Reoublican nominee for lying about the connection between illegal immigrants and crime? And here's the spoiler - Cato says immigrants of all stripes make us safer as a nation.

What does it say about rank and file Republicans backing that nominee that they don't or won't care about being lied to again?

And when will Republican leaders finally acknowledge that the lack of caring about this lie, about all the lies, is a direct result of 4 plus decades of xenophobic, white makes centric, racist oligarchical dog whistle politics?

Read the Cato reports here:
