New Hispanic leader needed

-A A +A

Immigration reform will factor into upcoming elections

By Sherry Robinson

Redistricting never turns out how you think it will, warned Michael Davis, vice president of political programs for the Washington D.C.-based Business and Industry PAC.
One demographic could trump lines drawn on a map, here and across the nation – immigration reform.
“Republicans are in trouble with Hispanics,” Davis said, and in the last five years, Hispanics have outpaced every other group in population growth – by large margins. “Every year for the next 20 years, there will be 500,000 new Hispanic voters turning 18. It will play a large, deciding vote in elections.”  
In New Mexico that increase was 16 percent and in Texas, 20 percent. Davis predicts Texas will be a blue state by 2020.
When Republicans talk about immigration reform, “the tone is extremely harsh, and it’s driving away Hispanics,” Davis said. Immigration reform “must stop being a litmus test” for candidates, and that requires a solution.
