Immigration Reform: GOP’s big chance to deliver on Latino outreach

Recent elections demonstrate that immigration is a mobilizing issue for Latino voters. We can be sure that Congressional action, or inaction, on the current comprehensive immigration reform (CIR) bill will factor in to Latino voting decisions in 2014 and beyond. Our recent polling finds a majority of Latino voters, 58%, cite immigration reform as the most important issue, and the overwhelming preference for a pathway to citizenship is clear. If the Republican Party is to gain any Latino support as a function of their efforts on CIR, the bill must maintain a clear and concise path to citizenship. [cont.]
