Amnesty for Illegals Doesn't Win Hispanic Votes

December 2008
Human Events;12/15/2008, Vol. 64 Issue 43, p20
The author reflects on the disillusionment with the myth that Republicans who support amnesty for illegal aliens would receive the vote of Hispanic voters in the 2008 U.S. election. Based on exit polls, only 31% of Hispanics voted for Republican presidential candidate John McCain, who worked hard on illegal immigration amnesty. Also noted is the failure of President George W. Bush to pull most Hispanic votes away from democrats with his massive pandering campaign. The author questions the rationale behind ethnic pandering by Republicans.
