I don't always agree with Chavez but she's right on this one. Say what you like about illegal immigration; keep up the deportation talk and you send otherwise conservative to moderate Latinos directly into the arms of the Democratic Party.

FREE ADVICE, I HAVE SEEN THIS WORK!!! Put on a pair of Ruby Red Slippers, click your heels THREE TIMES and you will be transported to the magic land where our newly arrived Latinos won't ALWAYS vote overwhelmingly against any republican white man.
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....
