Treating immigrants as if they don't know what's going on and how to make up their mind is precisely why the Repubs just don't get it. There are plenty of immigrants who vote Republican if it is in their interest, it's not rocket science, there are only two parties for Christsake. The reality is, almost nobody who lives in the cities votes Republican, because the Republicans appeal primarily to rural voters and have for decades. And most immigrants live in cities. When you live in a city, you realize how dependent and interconnected everybody is. You can't just hoard guns nad take your agricultural subsidies, subsidized phone service, subsidized road network from the govt and then crow about how self reliant you are.
