My wife's family is from Mexico. If anyone thinks that the GOP supporting amnesty or even softening their stance on immigration will all of the sudden make them vote Republican, they are delusional. The misconception that Latino voters are so one dementional and single issue focused is why the GOP will continue to lose their vote. If you don't know people on a large scale at a personal level, you won't figure out their politics. "Outreach" may have some small effect, John, but consider why you have to "reach out": your party and its base are not naturally embedded within these communities like Democrats are. Fair or not, the GOP is seen as the party of white people and a few pro immigration policies won't change that.
