Then its' time to see if your opinion's correct in that the "Hispanic tribal mentality" overrides being "American" in the US. If you're right: that may come back and bite the Hispanic people hard in the butt.

As a nation, we've definitely discovered what drives the vast majority of the Latino votes.

I agree, sounds like more excuses and spin.

Tho Ireland in 2014 might be good because the IRA said "we quit" AND the "prods" have stepped back too. Ireland ain't poor anymore.
^I agree!

As for bob---I find it hard to believe that it was 5 million Hispanic votes that gave Obama the win in the last election. I don't see how anyone can prove that his margin of victory was all because of one group alone.

So...the key to getting the Hispanic vote is to pander to lawbreakers. I find that very insulting.

Once again, bob---no politician on either side of the aisle should pander to lawbreakers or those who aid and abet said lawbreakers. If the lawbreakers don't like it, well...too bad. It makes no sense to pander to a voting bloc that amounts to 10% of all voters---especially when it is assumed that all Hispanics want amnesty for illegals.

BTW, bob, do you have any illegal alien relatives?

I think the Repubs hating on Immigrants is a very "Smart" position to hold. Hey, maybe shutdown the Gov't again??? Yea...., that's the ticket. What idiots...

No one hates immigrants. Many of us, however, have a problem with illegal aliens remaining in our country.

GOP split over immigration as Obama prepares executive action

The GOP should utilize every legal avenue to prevent this from happening.
Too late now, they had their chance.... but they took too long.

At least they'll remember this for next time.

I think Obama is the gift that keeps on giving to Republicans as evidenced by last two election cycles especially in state houses.
