NPR's Cokie Roberts: Dems Must 'Do Something Fast' on Amnesty Staff
Posted: Nov 18, 2014 10:11 AM

NPR political analyst Cokie Roberts appears on Morning Edition on Mondays, and she put on her advocacy hat this week. Alarmed at Republican gains among minority voters as the Democrats were "shlonked" at the polls,  Roberts insisted "The Democrats have got to do something fast on immigration to get back those votes because they're never going to get the white vote."

Latino pollster and advocate Matt Barreto said minority voters are looking for "relief" from deportations: "I think there's a huge opportunity here for the president."
