"Latinos, should be a natural constituency for the party", Paul argued, but "Republicans have pushed them away with harsh rhetoric over immigration."
Paul is at least partially correct. There is a natural constituency for the party among Latinos...but it isn't the illegals nor their La Raza enablers!
Instead, it is the LEGAL Hispanics -- the throroughly American Hispanics who are here legally and, in many cases, have been for hundreds of years. These Hispanics stand 2-for-1 against amnesty.
And why wouldn't they: They are American citizens!
The Republicans will win more Hispanic votes by standing against so-called "comprehensive immigration reform" than if they vote for it.
