Latino Voters: Rand Paul should scrap Presidential aspirations if he supports an immigration filibusterby Dee Dee Garcia Blase on Jun. 20, 2013, under 2016 Presidential Elections, chicano vote, Hispanic Latino Vote, Legal Immigration Reform, Women Voters
According to PolicyMic –it is no secret that Rand Paul is positioning himself for a run in the 2016 Republican primaries. Yet recent news states Sen. Rand Paul plans to support a filibuster of the Senate immigration bill unless it grants Congress more border security oversight, the Kentucky Republican said on Thursday.
If that is the case — Rand Paul should scrap Presidential aspirations if he supports an immigration filibuster. Mexican American voters (which accounts for almost 70% of the Latino population pie) remembered how the GOP voted when they did not support the DREAM Act of 2010, and this is precisely why Mitt Romney had his ass handed to him during the 2012 elections.
The broken immigration system is no laughing matter. This is a very serious issue, and if you cannot whip your Party into fixing
the broken immigration system knowing full well the system must be fixed by the federal government at the federal level … be advised Mexican American voters will remember how you and your party voted come 2016.
The 2013 Legal immigration reform bill is a major step forward in securing our Nation because only after everyone is registered and documented will we know who is in our Nation and where we can find them. We know that once we fix the broken immigration system, and once we document all immigrants — then they can feel safe to help law enforcement agencies to target criminal activity without the fear of deportation when they report suspicious activity to the law enforcement authorities. Therefore, bringing the immigrants out of the shadows will only strengthen our Nation’s security.
