    It's a pretty simple question, and most people seem to think it's all about Immigration Reform.

    However history does not bear that out.

    in 1984 Regan got 37% of the Hispanic Vote, then in 86 he Pushed through an Amnesty for 3 Million Illegal Immigrants most of them Hispanic. 2 years later his VP got 30% of the Hispanic Vote.

    So clearly the GOP would need to do more than just sign on to Immigration reform to change the Dynamics and gain Hispanic Votes? Any ideas?

    Ask Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz and Susana Martinez.

    Seems to me that they won with the traditional messages of fiscal restraint, free enterprise, individual liberties and less gubmint meddling in your life.

    We should agree to give the 30 million illegals here amnesty and citizenship with ONE caveat.

    You can't vote for 12 years.

    Watch how fast THAT becomes a non-starter, it's all about the Democrat vote machine...

    You also have to listen to what they didn't say. Things like "self deportation", "electrified fences", "looking illegal laws"...

    I do think the conservative message is a strong one, and has broad appeal, when it's on it's on, it's the other messages it's coupled with that hurt.

    I also note the lack of fool social lib issues, too....No foolish crap about contraception. "war on mimmin", promises of goodies from the treasury for their votes...

    Maybe they're just people who want The Man to leave them the hell alone, too.

    I'd just give it some time. The more itme they spend voting for democrats the poorer they will be. They'll see the light of day in about a decade.

    3. Issue conditional visas;
    4. Require 10 year history of self support;
    5. Grant permanent visas;
    6. Deport those with criminal records; and
    7. Make return to US after deportation a felony.
