  •  I'm pretty sure you're exaggerating the effect... (0+ / 0-)

    this is going to have with the Hispanic community in terms of electoral politics.

    Illegal immigrants obviously can't vote, and it smacks of more than a little naïveté to think that Hispanic citizens who actually worked hard to become citizens and gain suffrage in this country are going to use that suffrage to punish Republicans on principle for their stance on illegal immigration just because most of the people doing it also happen to be Hispanic.

    •  I am not sure I agree with you. There are those (0+ / 0-)

      who sympathize with illegals. They see wanting to work to feed your family as a non criminal act. Also the anti-illegal policies are very hard to separate from just sheer racism. I think the racism towards Hispanics has been just absolutely rampant in the Republican party. I would be surprised if Hispanics turn out and vote Republican.
