Share maxboot.netConservative columnist Max Boot is the author of “The Corrosion of Conservatism: Why I Left the Right.”Longtime conservative stalwart Max Boot knows the exact moment he stopped being a Republican.“That moment was the night that Donald Trump won the presidency,” he said. “I re-registered the very next day because I could not stay part of a Trump-ified Republican Party.”He says the GOP has become very different than the party of Ronald Reagan that he joined in the 1980s, citing many members’ willingness to align with a President who maligned minorities, mocked John McCain’s time as a prisoner of war, and who wanted to ban Muslims from entering the country – among other things.“I was viscerally and instantly opposed to Donald Trump from the moment that he started running for office castigating Mexicans as rapists and murderers,” Boot said. “That was just so outrageous and so out of line. And he continued to outrage me on an almost daily basis.”Boot now sees himself as a center-right independent and writes about his dissatisfaction with his former party in his book The Corrosion of Conservatism: Why I Left the Right. He speaks at an event tonight with the World Affairs Council of Greater Houston.In the audio above, he talks with Houston Matters producer Michael Hagerty about his decision and where conservatives like him go from here.
Share Currently, a federal injunction is keeping TPS in effect for people from El Salvador and Haiti, but not Honduras. Those three countries make up 94% of immigrants with these protections. If parents can’t stay in the United States legally, some will leave their families and return to their home countries, according to the report’s author Nicole Svajlenka.“We know that separating children from their families has a lot of repercussions ranging from emotional distress to economic turmoil and all of these are really lasting for young children’s development,” said Svajlenka.She said other parents may opt to stay in the country illegally and could be deported at any time, which would also cause emotional stress for children. Svajlenka also said Texas children have the most to lose if TPS is ended.“Texas is actually the state with the largest number of US citizen children that would be impacted,” she said.TPS has allowed hundreds of thousands of people escaping natural disasters or conflict to work and live legally in the United States for decades. TPS holders from El Salvador, Honduras and Haiti have lived in the United States an average of 22 years. More than half of the 49,000 TPS holders living in Texas from those three countries live in the Houston area.
