Texas Republicans Ignoring Hispanic Constituents and Opposing Immigration Reform

Rating: 4 votes, 5.00 average.
Nate Silver recently reported on which Republicans have the largest percentages of Hispanic constituents in an article talking about Republicans who might end up supporting immigration reform. But the San Antonio Express notes that a number of Texas Republicans mentioned in the Silver story are opposing immigration reform. Texas is going to be a purple state in a few years and decisions like those being made by these representatives is probably hastening that process.

    I call these folks racists not because they oppose legalization of illegals but because they have done nothing to reform skilled immigration and have not showed any support for the proposals on skilled migration.

    Problem is with redistricting they can get away by not addressing concerns of minority and still win elections.

    ...until minorities start encroaching...then they try to divert the minorities to other areas...happened to a white-Japanese couple I know...they were diverted from Spencer Bacchus's district in Alabama and were told they wont fit in there.

    Welcome to the reality show "Comprehensive Immigration Reform"

    White House tries to keep immigration on track
    WASHINGTON (AP) -- The White House on Tuesday sought to keep delicate immigration negotiations on track, as a key Republican senator distanced himself further from a draft bill President Barack Obama's aides are readying in case congressional talks crumble.

    Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio's office said Obama's plan "injected additional partisanship into an already difficult process." The White House, following the weekend leak of its draft legislation, insisted the president wants the bipartisan Senate group Rubio is a member of to put forward its own bill instead.

    Its amazing how difficult it can be even when there is little opposition to immigration reform. There is no money involved from any lobbying group against it but still passing it so difficult. Majority of people support it. It makes sense to bring people out of shadows and provide humane treatment to humans. Why are republicans always on the wrong side of things, be it immigration, abortion, gay rights, equal treatment to women, saving environment? Its practically beyond belief that humans have sent stuff beyond our galaxy and equal treatment for all is still elusive.

    This is an issue that both parties need to work together on. The face of Texas is changing as it has one of the largest percentages of immigrants. I completely agree that it is on its way to becoming a purple state.
