latino, hispanic outreach gop fail immigration v Clay Bennett

Via one of my favorite Twitter pals ever, Clay Bennett

Please read the last part of the following letter twice, and then share it with as many people possible. While you’re at it, please vote. And while you’re at it squared, please help everyone you can to get to the polls so that they can vote.

In other words:


Here is today’s Los Angeles Times letter to the editor, because our voices matter:

What immediately came to mind reading this article was the saying “cut off one’s nose to spite one’s face.” It seems to me that’s what the Latinos in this article are threatening to do in November. A minority voter staying home on election day is a vote for a Republican.

Weighing which party has best treated Latinos, there is no contest. Last year, the Democrat-controlled Senate passed comprehensive immigration reform, while the Republican-controlled House did nothing.

President Obama has used his executive authority to implement several pro-immigrant measures. Could he have done more? Sure. But would Latinos be better off with Republicans controlling both houses of Congress? Not a chance.

Added: ANYone who’s not a Republican staying home on election day is a vote for a Republican….
