Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy

Congressman Takes Heat for Referring to Latino Immigrants as "Wetbacks"

Rate this Entry

Yikes. Well, if the GOP wanted to reinforce its brand as being anti-Latino, Don Young (R-AK) might as well be its new poster boy. John Boehner quickly labeled the Congressman's remarks as unacceptable:


"Congressman Young's remarks were offensive and beneath the dignity of
the office he holds," Boehner, R-Ohio, said in a statement. "I don't
care why he said it -- there's no excuse and it warrants an immediate
apology."


Some are already saying this will affect immigration reform politics, though I doubt it will change the equation very much. But it certainly won't help the GOP in its efforts to try and reach out to a more diverse section of the public.
