“…Latino immigrants who are likely unauthorized, 31 percent identify as Democrats while just 4 percent identify as Republicans. Of those who don’t identify with a party but lean one way or the other, 23 percent lean toward the Democratic Party while just 15 percent lean towards Republicans.
The study also found that the longer Hispanic immigrants of any legal status were in the U.S., the more likely they were to identify with one of the major parties, particularly Democrats. Of those in the U.S. for fewer than 10 years, 26 percent identified with Democrats and 9 percent with Republicans.”
Politics, as in war, is not the place to give aid to the enemy. While it’s generally counter-productive to suggest that there is never middle ground between the parties, in this case, there truly isn’t. Amnesty of any form will only serve to quicken the demise of conservative representation in Washington, period.
