Latino,Vote Obama,if you care about immigration and are hispanic,in spanish or in english Vote Obama!!!

Updated on January 3, 2015

VOTE OBAMA, it is written the same way whether in english or in spanish,but it is crucial that hispanic voters support Obama in big numbers on the upcoming elec

There are currently two very distinct and opposite positions on immigration,immigration reform the dream act,and the immigrant community as a whole.Romney's and the republican party position is, deport every person who is currently an illegal alien,or make their life so miserable,pursue them relentlessly ,harass them in such a way that their permanence in the country becomes a living hell and they'll self deport.The democrat's position is that a comprehensive immigration reform is necessary ,and a path to legalization,residence status and ultimately citizenship should be made available to those illegal aliens who meet certain requirements,pay a fine or penalty,and follow the requisites outlined in the eventual reform.

Can the republican candidate pivot to the left on immigration?I don't think so,but he will try to bamboozle hispanic voters,using Marco Rubio as a collaborato

With the recent measure taken by president Obama to grant de facto amnesty to illegal aliens who were brought by their parents when they were under the age of seventeen years old he has made it obvious how much of a problem the immigration issue presents for Romney and the republicans,which has been reported they have privately acknowledged.So much so that Romney hasn't emphatically condemned as he would have just a few weeks ago,but instead sending out his spokespeople , such as Marco Rubio,Mc Cain,Graham, to say that this measure doesn't really accomplish anything in the way of immigration reform, and it only breaks the law and is politically motivated to pander to hispanics.this is very hypocritical since Romney has already publicly stated that he would even veto the dream act which is the measure that has the most bipartisan support even today when the republican party is the party of deportation.But he does understand that with only about twenty four percent of the hispanic vote in his favor defeating Obama is an uphill battle ,and so far his only antidote seems to be to depress the hispanic vote by making it more difficult for minorities to vote and to demoralize them reminding them that Obama didn't provide the full fledged amnesty they expected.

In the end the election will be decided by what the economy looks like in october , but strategically, whether it's apparent or not the president is making all

Although Romney is currently enjoying the benefits of the negative economic news of the past few weeks, all experts agree the economy will not spiral downward in the near future , and is more likely to continue the slow recovery path it has had for the past couple of years, which is not what a challenger needs in order to defeat an incumbent president who has the advantage of the office he holds.Romney while having been able to bring the party together in supporting him...finally, the support is rather mild in many ways both from groups and individuals who say "well I guess we'll have to support this guy".But his discourse has been sketchy and all over the place as he has been scrambling to battle the democrats' effort to define him and responding to the president's actions in all different fronts.

It is true as it has been reported that republicans now believe that Romney can win and democrats believe that Obama can lose.

But in the end it wil be a close race, and although it will come down to the economy, all the minor variables will also have an impact on the final result,not only in the presidential election but also in controlling the house of representatives and the senate and as we have seen in the last few years gridlock is not only possible but likely due to the political climate prevalent in Washington DC .

will Obama get more or less hispanic votes in 2012 than in 2008 ?

will obama get more or less hispanic votes in 2012 than in 2008?

      I disagree. For more racists are in the democrat party. This hubs call to Hispanic voters for Obama is clearly racist by the way.

      that's an understandable position but there has to be a solution to the millions of illegal aliens other than deportation

      Without addressing the issue of those entering this country illegally we cannot allow an amnesty program. If we address the problem to stop it from continuing, we can not, once again, introduce amnesty like we have in the past. This administration has once again done an end run around the law and Congress.

      The latest polls show obama leading romney about 3 to 1 on latino vote and the gap is even greater on some battleground states ,also the latino vote is expected to grow from 10 million in 2008 to 12 million in 2012 karl rove and other republican strategists recognize even publicly that winning the white house with less than 40 percent of the latino vote is difficult.

      cardisa I wouldn't generalize saying americans , most americans are not xenophobes unfortunately in the present time the right wing nut xenophobes and racists are the loudest and are in control of the republican party so it seems the whole country dislikes immigrants and that is not the case at all.

      The Americans seem to forget that their country was built mostly by immigrants and illegal aliens. Cheap labor where they can pay little and nothing to immigrants who are willing to "work for food" is where most of their building labour comes from. Without these immigrants they would have ended up paying much more or having less built. Immigrants are hard working people who know that in order to survive in a foreign country they must always work hard as they are not entitled to welfare. Americans need to remember that.

      Welcome to Hubpages Webaknproud. I hope Obama will help the immigrants find their place in the US.

      Voted up and interesting. Some may say President Obama's decision to not deport children of illegal aliens who meet certain criteria for two years was a political move. While that may be true, it is still the right direction to take in a humanitarian kind of way. Some of these children (under age 30) have served in the military, gone on to college, pursued professional careers and are positive contributors to their communities. Deportation of these children would only result in a feel good move by a narrow minded segment of society that feeds off of isolationism and superiority. Of course, that is just my opinion.

      Marco Rubio will also sell out a certain segment in his State, just like the governor is trying to disenfranchise around 180,000 registered voters. This presidential race is going to be nasty on so many different levels with lies, half truths and misrepresented data. The voter really needs to keep their eye on the ball come November.
