Republicans will gain 2 Hispanics and lose 4 of their base doing it.
We can embrace the legal ones. There is nothing wrong with that - they are primarily Catholic and should be Conservatives. I think any attempts at outreach to Blacks is doomed to failure. We might as well attempt with Hispanics - might have more success with them.
As a person who has worked in both Black majority and Hispanic majority cities I can say honestly that I would much prefer to work with Hispanics. They have a strong tendency to work hard and be family oriented, both are Conservative traits. I think we have been wrong to lump all Hispanics together as if they are all Mexican. They are not. I think we should start with Cubans and work our way outward from there.
I personally believe that all students should be taught Latin as part of an overall Classical education. It is the foundation of five languages (including English). There is nothing wrong with teaching our children the second most spoken language in the world (Spanish). We can embrace them and at the same time teach them to embrace our values. By excluding legal Hispanics by lumping them together with illegal Mexican entrants to the country, we are shortchanging ourselves. It is time for that to end.
When I look down the road that you of the younger generation will have to travel, it occurs to me that your answer to the Muslim problem is going to be the Hispanic problem. IOW, better Catholics than Muslims. I really like the Hispanics who work for a living and raise their children Catholic. I have no room in my country for Islamics.
