If Republicans believe that Senator Marco Rubio is the way to win the hearts and minds of Hispanic voters, they have another thing coming.
Somos Republicans, a group of Republican Latino voters who subscribe to the tenets of conservatism, have just told Marco to take a hike...
Houston, TX – Cuban-Americans Sen. Marco Rubio and candidate Ted Cruz will permanently wind up on the SOMOS REPUBLICANS unfriendly to Latino list because of their support for enforcement only policies against immigrants. They fail to recognize the privilege Cuban immigrants have over other immigrants that come here to achieve the American dream. Furthermore, both Rubio and Cruz are being supported by the same anti-immigrant crowd that supported JD Hayworth and both have been praised by extremist radio show host Mark Levin. We believe GOP Cuban-Americans such as Rubio and Cruz are being used as pawns by the nativist, anti-immigrant and Tea Party crowd.I'm not sure where Somos has been for the last 2 years but haven't they heard that Rubio also doesn't support the DREAM Act and wants to make English the official language of the United States?
Florida is experiencing fast growing emerging groups from Columbia, Central America, and etc. Indians, Columbians, Peruvians, Central Americans, Mexicans, Irishmen, Canadians, Asians, Russians, and etc. do not have the privilege of the wet-foot-dry-foot policy as they try to flee their government to pursue the American dream. Most Cubans are able to receive federal assistance provided by tax payers for a short time once their foot touches American soil, and then they are on parole for one year before becoming a permanent resident. Unfortunately, both Rubio and Cruz are also putting 30,000 Cuban families that have slipped through the cracks and they are also at risk with regard to enforcement only policies.
Rubio and Cruz are dangerously flirting with protectionist and isolationist policies that are not embraced by Capitalistic free market ideals.
Rubio never has been a friend to Latinos or Hispanics.
It's about time Somos woke up.
