Lee-Anne Goodman makes an interesting observation. She believes Hispanics are on the brink of altering American politics forever. She is right.
Most vote Democrat, but not overwhelmingly so. While far more voted for Barack Obama than John McCain in 2008, there wasn’t such a rejection of Republicans in 2004, when 5.1 million Hispanics voted for Democratic candidates compared to 4.3 million who voted for the GOP.
Nonetheless, most political observers agree the Democrats are currently better positioned to take advantage of the growing demographic than the Republican party, which now has Tea Party adherents among its legislators — and they’re largely anti-immigration.
That’s why we saw President Obama visit El Paso, Texas, a couple of weeks ago to push for comprehensive immigration reform. Obama challenged law-makers to enact new immigration laws while lauding immigrants for the boon they provide to the U.S. economy.
“We’ve got to put the politics aside,” he told the cheering crowd.
The Republicans know they have a problem. Hector Barajas, a Spanish media spokesman for both George W.
