(CNN) With so many Trump-related books already on the shelf, publishing houses have reached the point where perhaps the only author still worth hearing from would be the fly that landed on former Vice President Mike Pence's head during his debate with now Vice President Kamala Harris.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez demanded Wednesday that migrant families separated at the border under former President Donald Trump’s administration be paid “reparations.” Ocasio-Cortez was holding a virtual town hall meeting with constituents when she went after the “barbaric” conditions migrants are being held in under President Joe Biden’s administration, however, before making the demand for reparations, she stated she didn’t want to “draw false equivalence” between the treatment of migrants under Trump and Biden.

Our politics have become painfully and pointlessly polarized. Nowhere is this more evident than in the Republican Party’s hardline stance on immigration. Even as our southern border faces the biggest migrant surge in two decades , Republicans won’t budge on immigration. To score points against the Biden presidency and the Democratic majority in Congress, too many Republicans are willing to throw bipartisanship to the wind and hold the line against any sort of Democrat-led immigration reform.

It’s easy to see why Republicans are reluctant to side with Democrats on immigration. The GOP remains spellbound by the extremist rhetoric that defined the Trump … [Read more...] about The GOP is stuck in a losing battle against immigration
