Republicans need all the votes they can get next November if they are to have any hope of retaining the White House and winning back control of Congress. But one group of voters among whom the GOP has gained considerable ground over the last few elections now seems about to slip away, perhaps permanently.
Hispanic voters are poised to turn several red states blue come 2008, virtually guaranteeing a Democratic presidential victory and a pickup in congressional seats as well, according to a new analysis of Hispanic voting behavior. "Border Wars: The Impact of Immigration on the Latino Vote," released by the conservative Americas Majority Foundation, demonstrates that congressional Republicans' ham-handed approach to immigration will cost them dearly at the polls.

I admire Chavez but when it comes to how Americans (both born and naturalized) feel about criminal aliens she is stone blind.
I live in a blue state and in the last election we tossed our open borders RINO out on his butt and replaced him with an anti amnesty conservative republican.
Consider the source and take this info for what it’s worth...
I think that Chavez is correct- illegal aliens are contributing to the Democrats’ electoral victories in histocially unfriendly territory.
I believe the exact opposite of what she has written.
Is Linda still beating this dead horse?
Making millions of illegals citizens and/or giving them then the right to vote will make the GOP go into extinction.
BIG TIME ERROR ON MY PART!
If Republicans don’t stand their ground on border security, they’ll lose elections and deserve to.
The link is broken.
Imagine, some dame named”Linda Chavez” supporting the illegal agenda.
Along with Rino Rudy and all the damn dems.
Good thing she likes to employ illegals under the table or she’d be Madame Secretary Chavez.
She’s got it backwards.
I wrote Chavez off as anyone to take seriously last summer when she came out with her ridiculous accusations and slurs against those who want immigration laws enforced. And she just can’t let go of her sanctimonious preaching and posturing. Not anyone whose opinions I’m interested in.
That is an argument to see immigration and casual citizenship, including dual citizenship that is common today as a national threat.
I admire Chavez but when it comes to how Americans (both born and naturalized) feel about criminal aliens she is stone blind.Well said. I agree with you 100%.
I guess she better switch parties because she'd feel right at home with the left on the issue of immigration.
Was good to know ya, Linda!

Ms Chavez can scream "Bigot!" "Nativist!" "Xenophobe!" until she turns blue for all I care.
How does she get off saying that Americans of Hispanic descent cheer lawbreaking? Who are her friends?
Snort. Tell it to Eliot Spitzer.
