Congressional candidate Madison Cawthorn, the inspirational 25-year-old Republican in the race for North Carolina’s 11th District seat, has quietly scrubbed immigration from his platform on his official website.
During the primary, Cawthorn won by painting himself as an America First patriot in the same vein as President Donald Trump. According to his campaign website, he had the following position on immigration:
We lawfully admit over a million immigrants each year, which far exceeds other countries. But, our immigration system is in crisis. We need to secure our borders and we need the rule of law. I oppose the continued allowance of sanctuary cities.
While this is a relatively tame and moderate position on immigration, it is too much for Cawthorn to stand by as he heads toward the general and no longer needs to act like he is a staunch conservative.
Political analyst and author Ryan James Girdusky noted that Cawthorn has now removed the immigration position from his campaign website completely:

Even before he changed his stance on immigration, there were already troubling signs that Cawthorn may be a RINO laying in the weeds.
“I like the environment. I think anybody who owns land or really likes going out hunting, they care about the environment as well,” Cawthorn told the New York Times in an interview following his surprise primary victory in June.
“I do have very strong conservative values. I think the place where we really do differ is that I believe I can carry the message of conservatism in a way that doesn’t seem so abrasive — that has better packaging, I would say, better messaging,” he added.
He told the fake news hacks that he thought President Trump’s messaging on the immigration in particular was offensive and counter-productive.
“You look at border security — after 2015, 2016, when we really started talking about the crisis on our southern border, I believe the way that it was messaged came across as if we were xenophobic, when that’s not the case at all. I believe all of us love legal immigration. We love how the diversity adds to our country,” Cawthorn said.
“Another way I think I’d be able to help Republicans win the millennial and Gen Z vote is through social media. The left has gotten very good at social media, whereas the right has kind of trailed behind. You see people like Congressman Dan Crenshaw as being the only Republican member who’s very savvy when it comes to social media. I think we need to be able to compete not only on a traditional debate stage or on cable news, but also in the new town square,” Cawthorn said.
Unfortunately for North Carolina Republicans, Cawthorn has all the makings of a RINO. He will have much to prove to conservatives if he is able to win the general election in November.
New York Young Republicans Call for Order After Chaos at the Capitol
Order Must be Restored
On January 6, 2020 the New York Young Republican Club issued a statement calling for an instant restoration of law and order after protests escalated at the United States Capitol.
The protests were originally in support of President Donald Trump and his efforts to challenge the results of an election marked by massive irregularities. Several protesters pushed the envelope by breaking into the Capitol and interrupting the Senate and House of Representatives proceedings.
The Republican organization issued the following statement on the incident:
Today, what we see at the United States Capitol the result of American elites permitting general malaise to foment tangible destruction. We unequivocally condemn the interruption of Senate and House of Representatives proceedings. Anyone who breached the Capitol should be arrested and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law because destruction and vandalism of property cannot be permitted by any actor.
We are the party of Law and Order, and we expect citizens all to operate in accordance with these standards.
U.S. policymakers will have to take a long hard look in the mirror. The lack of leadership has created a vicious cycle of radicalization that is increasingly getting out of control. Such developments could put America’s political system on the ropes if not addressed properly.
On the Republican side, there must be a clean break during the 2022 primaries, where the overwhelming majority of incumbents should face nationalist challengers. The current leadership has clearly failed and must be replaced.
