CNN’s Murray: GOP ‘Core’ Wants Immigrants to ‘Act Like Every Other White Person’

Thursday on CNN’s “Newsroom,” political reporter Sara Murray discussed Republican presidential candidate Gov. Bobby Jindal’s (R-LA) announcement speech in which he said, “We need to not be, you know, hyphenated Americans, we all just need to be American—not Indian-American, not African-American.” Murray that was a message for “core” Republicans, who want immigrants to “act like every other white person in America.”

Murray said, “The interesting thing is, as Jeff points out, Bobby Jindal does inject some diversity into the GOP field, but that’s not the area of voters he’s trying to appeal to right now.”

“When you listen to his speech, he talked a lot about how we need to not be, you know, hyphenated Americans, we all just need to be American—not Indian-American, not African-American—and that immigrants need to better assimilate with society.”

“Now, that’s not a pitch that is going to bring in new voters, that’s going to bring in minorities. That is a pitch to the core of the Republican party, to the folks who think that if you come to America, you should immediately speak English and you should act like every other white person in America.”
