We have instituted a half-dozen amnesties in the past, starting with the IRCA law of 1986. All they have accomplished is raising the expectation level for the next round. The latest cry for amnesty, if fulfilled, will NOT "solve" the problem, once and for all. It will only signify to Latinos around the world that our nation is led by weak, naive patsies. Eventually, we will be overrun. The GOP is writing the ticket for its own extinction if it travels down that road.
There may be no single, simple explanation why Mitt Romney lost the election this week -- but clearly the perception that the GOP is anti-Hispanic didn't help. For years, I've been warning my fellow conservatives that their position on immigration would be costly, not just politically but for the economy as well.

The election results definitively proved the former. The Hispanic vote was decisive in denying Romney a win in Colorado, Nevada, Florida and possibly Virginia. Without winning more Hispanic votes, the Republican Party may be doomed to permanent minority status.

Hispanics are the fastest growing population in the country....
