In the 1990s and early 2000s the Republicans made some good gains among Hispanics. Many Hispanic businessmen in the South West had similar values, fiscally conservative, interested in a good business climate and socially conservative due to their largely catholic backgrounds. But so called Immigration Reform, which really means keeping poor Hispanics immigrants out of the US, may reverse that trend.
Lionel Sosa, an Hispanic advertising mogul, is one of these disaffected republicans.
I'm not Hispanic, but but I worked for many years by driving around construction sites to survey housing. The majority of the workers were Hispanic and they were all working hard. I have personally known several illegal aliens and they all work hard. They aren't here for hand outs. They want the American Dream, work hard so that your children can have a better life and become successful.
Over the two centuries that the US has been in existence there have been several immigrant groups that have come under fire for trying to steal our way of life. Usually the ones Americans objected to the most spoke a different language.
