Romney's defeat is being blamed on things like immigration policy when Hispanics have always voted Dem in large numbers - and continued to do so even after changes in immigration polices during Reagan years. Big immigration reformers like McCain also lost most Hispanic votes. A rush to change immigration policy without sound borders won't get GOP more votes - but it will get America more "guests" - especially with Obama tying America down like a fatted calf and inviting the mobs to come feast (Obama's people went to Mexico over 30 times to arrange food stamps for Mexicans as a lure north). Obama and his clients don't care about America - its all about the foods stamps, free this, free that - the gov. cheese (just like crack dealer Obama's food stamp commercials before election).
In biological terms its like an opportunistic infection. America is run down from within, it gets a cut on its skin (borders) and an infection takes root. There is little immune response because Obama gov is like an autoimmune disease that suppresses response. What immune response there is gets attacked as the "real" problem. Typical of some GOPers to blame Hispanic vote when they couldn't get their own base out.
For the record I like a lot of the immigrants better than a lot of Americans - but you can just have invasions of millions of people seeking the dole and expect to function. Plus blacks been in US longer than many whites and the immigrants get put ahead of them for votes - one reason they don't get along very well in many places
"The pro-illegal-immigration WSJournal as well as other pro-illegal-immigrant elements of the Republican party fail to acknowledge that for at least the last nine elections, Hispanics have voted heavily in favor of Democratic presidential candidates over Republican candidates by an average of 64 percent to 31 percent, as shown by data compiled by the Pew Hispanic Center
