EDITOR'S NOTE

GOOD AFTERNOON TO EVERYONE!

The Republican Party has been keenly interested in reaching out to Hispanic voters, a rapidly growing demographic in which 2012 presidential candidate Mitt Romney fared poorly. The drive for "comprehensive immigration reform" is widely seen as a key component of this outreach.

But there are much more formidable obstacles for the Republican quest to win Hispanic votes, because contrary to years of confident assurance from political consultants that Latinos are a "natural Republican constituency," polls reveal the exact opposite - they are heavily inclined toward the Big Government policies favored by Democrats. A recent survey portrayed Hispanic voters as among the strongest supporters of ObamaCare, for example, favoring President Obama's health care reforms by a lopsided 2-to-1 margin.

Another remarkable result from the same survey held that nearly half of Latino respondents said they trusted the federal government to "do the right thing" always, or most of the time.

Making inroads with these voters will clearly involve much more than immigration reform. Does the GOP have a game plan for understanding the apparent Hispanic preference for Big Government programs, and devising an effective counter-argument?

Considering immigration
 
April 2, 2013

All this talk about a path to citizenship is a shiny object designed to distract and confuse the issue, which is legal status. The issue is whether we are going to legalize 11 million people as a reward for breaking our immigration laws. In the process, no plan seems to actually fix the problem. We're just going to be doing this over again in a few years.
