    they probably are mostly Latino. The GOP hasn't been to focused on embracing immigrants and I'm suggesting we do. With people like Rubio we can embrace them with their faith as a start. Then socially as well.

    Its about time the GOP embraced Latino's. The Democrat party is becoming the Godless party embracing poor immigrants with false promises of hope and change. Your party has painted a picture of the GOP as a bunch of white racist that are out for nothing buy money. The party needs to debunk those claims and show Latino's that we are mostly Christians as they are and can help them have a path to citizenship.

    This is GREAT news! Spread the good word!

    This means that all those BS threads about Christian persecution, oppression, and the outlawing of Christianity in America are just that... complete and utter bullshit.

    Well glory to Tim Tebow and praise be to Pat Robertson, that is a huge relief indeed.

    Most of agriculture is run by immigrants now. If we don't embrace immigrants and make a path to citizenship for these people we will never win another election

    A small arm of atheist mostly from the Democrat party affiliated with the Freedom From Religion Foundation have attempted to derail religious rights. Go ahead and keep it up, then the Latino's will come to the GOP for sure.

    Hispanics have been voting for Democrats not because of false promises, but because Democrats have actively been working in Hispanics' best interests and Republicans have been working against their best interests. And it doesn't just have to do with immigration issues. Hispanics realize the Democrats offer better economic ideas, too. Hispanics do tend to be more conservative on social issues, but they vote on bread and butter issues. The Republicans don't offer them much in the way of economics.

    I love the way you assume that they vote for Democrats simply because they've been tricked or something as though they're stupid. That's another reason minorities vote for Democrats. Democrats don't insult them quite as much as Republicans do.
    Thanks from Hollywood
