The Republican stance on immigration is not the main reason why Hispanics went for Obama. They are the main recipients of government assistance. They like the social safety net and big government. This was reported by Heather McDonald in National Review, and she was quoted on both Limbaugh and Levin today. They will be the majority race 50 years from now. They have multiple children; whites no longer do. Only question is, when the whites are the minority, will enough whites be left to provide for their social programs? My guess is no.
