    Any softening on immigration would outrage their base.  Anything that makes their base happy will piss off Latinos.  Smoke and mirrors can bridge that gap for about five minutes, tops.

      It's their only hope — and even at that, it's kind of a "hail Mary" shot.

      repugs wondering why they don't get more Latino support, because everybody knows Latinos are "pro-family".  I guess they somehow should overlook how many Latino families are being ripped apart because of deportations. Not to mention that heart-warming term, anchor babies.

        anti-worker, anti-healthcare, anti-teacher, pro-billionaire thing that tends to not go over so well with New Mexico's Latino population.  The folks whose families have been right here for 300 years are not so especially concerned about immigration.  Reasons to avoid the Republican party are legion, no matter how they try to use abortion as a wedge.
