Ohio Governor John Kasich was in Cleveland on Tuesday, but he wasn’t at the Republican National Convention.

Instead, the former Republican presidential candidate was busy telling a gathering of the International Republican Institute just how peachy immigration is. There is, apparently, a “stagnant growth of population” in Ohio, so Kasich wants “people to come” to his state.

“When I look at immigration I look at a new level of energy,” Kasich said, “I look at immigration as an opportunity. One of the things that we face in Ohio is a stagnant growth of population – we want people to come to Ohio. We want to integrate these folks and we want them to become part of our economic dynamo. So this refrain we hear around the world, and I understand some of the problems we have, is this anti-immigration is unhealthy.”

Kasich then went on to criticize Trump and his supporters without naming him by name. “When I look around the world, what is it that I see, I see growing nationalism. There is nothing wrong with nationalism, until it becomes extreme — we all love our countries. Secondly there is an increasing tide of isolationism, lets just take care of us, lets pull the shades down, lock the doors and lets just forget the rest of the world and take care of ourselves.”

Obviously, the Ohio governor is more concerned about, “isolationism,” “extreme nationalism,” and bringing in as many immigrants as possible than he is about the future of America, given that he has refused to endorse the only person capable of getting conservatives ANYTHING they want.
