  •  Part of this is of their own making (8+ / 0-)

    A big part of why the median age of the Latino voter is 18 is because they made it so damn hard for the migrant labor to come and work and then GO HOME.

    If you can't go home, what do you do? You either bring your family in by hook or by crook, or you settle down and make a new family.

    And for young, healthy, males (overwhelmingly that's migrant labor), that means you get married and have kids.

    Kids who are born HERE, who are CITIZENS, and who can vote when they turn 18.

    Which they are doing in large numbers.

    If one party makes it almost impossible for one or both of their parents to live here, or worse, splits up the family, those kids are certainly NOT going to think well of that party.
