Demographically true, but I disagree. What Reagan would have done (and W. did to some extent) was to recognize the demographics and silence the nativists. America's problem is not hardworking people wanting to come and live in America - which is the case for the overwhelming majority of illegals. They are not bad people and most people know that and the Latino citizens (natural conservatives) take great offense at their persecution.
I am most certainly all for enforcing the law, but the law, in this case, is broken. Thus, we need tobe clear that the GOP will NEVER AGAIN win the White House until it makes peace with the Latino community and comes up with a plan for dealing with the illegals that doesn't involve deportation or splitting families.
Hispanics are not "persecuted" in the USA. To the contrary, they are protected as a "minority" group and benefit from affirmative action. And they are NOT "natural" conservatives.
What Republicans mean by family values and what Hispanics mean are two completely different things, he said. We are a very compassionate people, we care about other people and understand that government has a role to play in helping people. And a strong reason for that support for big government is that so many Hispanics use government programs. U.S.-born Hispanic households in California use welfare programs at twice the rate of native-born non-Hispanic households.
Herr Freiiheit, wake up Mitt needed more white voters: http://www.vdare.com/articles/romney-white-share-falls-short-of-2010
“Romney’s White Share Fell Short Of 2010, So He Lost
Only one metric really matters in the close 2012 Presidential race: according to CNN’s exit polling (scroll down), Mitt Romey’s share of the white a.k.a. American vote was just 59%, for a twenty-point lead over Obama among whites. That’s at the high end of the mediocre post-Reagan range, and four points above the hapless John McCain in 2008, but just not enoughas VDARE.com repeatedly remarked during the campaign as we prised white share data out of relectant MSM polls. (Counting is not complete as I write this, and the Pacific Coast results may reduce Romney’s white share and some other details).
In comparison, the Congressional GOP got a 60% white share in 2010. Ronald Reagan got a 64% white share in 1984. George W. Bush won, narrowly, with a 58% white share in 2004...”
“Silence the Nativists”!
What the Hell part of ‘illegal’ don’t you understand?
There are literally a billion people around the world who want to get into the USA.
We cannot let them all into our nation.
In the USA, our Congress sets the immigration laws and the Administration enforces those laws. For polticial expediency, Presidents have NOT been enforcing our immigration laws.
I AM OFFENDED that your attitude screams that Latinos are offended at Americans wanting our laws enforced.
You and they can go to Hell!
Are you serious? Even my Spanish mother is upset that they are not following immigration laws as she did. Try immigrating to any country, even Mexico without papers...they will throw you in jail or our of the country. This is not about if they are ‘nice’ or ‘moral’. It’s about laws!
