Sean Hannity, John Boehner say GOP should tackle immigration reform

"We've gotta get rid of the immigration issue altogether. It's simple for me to fix it. I think you control the border first, you create a pathway for those people that are here, you don't say you gotta go home. And that is a position that I've evolved on. Because you know what—it just—it's gotta be resolved. The majority of people here—if some people have criminal records you can send 'em home—but if people are here, law-abiding, participating, four years, their kids are born here ... first secure the border, pathway to citizenship ... then it's done. But you can't let the problem continue. It's gotta stop."

He didn't say he was for amnesty. What's amazing is what something changes in to when it is whispered down the lane. The discussion of how to appeal to latino voters includes many suggestions and ideas. The simple mention of or inclination towards one idea or another doesn't prove endorsement or support of the idea.

Hannity, like many other political commentators have come up with many ideas and suggestions on how the GOP can appeal to a greater percentage of latino voters. Another problem also presented by Hannity was that amnesty and immigration may not be the largest problem with the latino vote. That quote of his was taken out of an almost hour-long talk show which included various other alternate suggestions, ideas and brainstorms.

What good would it do? It would just be another law that the fed won't enforce.........
Oh, yeah, I forgot about the votes it would get the GOP.

Since when did pandering become the answer?

The question is, would it help the GOP? Are latinos voting democrat because of immigration? Are those immigration laws a GOP product? Are they not voting GOP because of misconception of the GOP? Would changing GOP immigration stance affect latino votes? There are too many unanswerable questions.

Don't always assume all latinos are liberals, any more than you can assume that all blacks are liberals. A very large number of latinos are catholics and they support family values. A number of blacks are church goers and they support conservative family values as well.

The GOP needs to find a way to reach out and work with these people. It might not all be about free stuff here. I also suspect the GOP might see that they can compromise more than the progressives have been willing to.

If they can't, they deserve to be extinct.
I don't suffer from insanity.
I enjoy every minute of it.

I agree with you. I listen to his, along with many other, radio broadcasts almost everyday. I heard this segment and I don't remember him ever endorsing the idea. They were tossing out ideas about how to capture the Hispanic communities vote, which went 70% towards Obama. They discussed a bunch of ideas, none of which he endorsed outright.

There is a reason that "W" got more of the Latino vote than Romney or McCain. I'm not sure what the reason is. McCain's interest in immigration reform sure didn't help him in the general election.
I think that Latinos think The GOP views them largely as a nuisance. Maybe I'm wrong, I don't know.

This frustrates me. I am SICK. AND. TIRED. Of policies revolving around "appealing to ________ voters". We'll give women birth control in exchange for their votes. We'll give illegal Mexicans amnesty in exchange for latino votes. We'll give the people in the projects better health care and more food stamps in exchange for their vote. We'll threaten seniors with taking away their medicare if they don't give their vote.

NO! NO! NO!

That is NOT why policy should be made!!! Policy is for the good and safety of the country, and to preserve the freedoms of the country! THAT IS ALL!

I'm so sick of politicians sucking up to certain groups for their vote, and then conservatives fall right into the same trap.

For one, W spoke spanish. Two, he was for immigration reform.

Since then, all the GOP does is talk about shipping "illegals" back to wherever...

Like it or not, latinos are here, and they are multiplying. It will one day, if not already, be impossible to win elections without them.

Now, I see the GOP giving them "handouts" the same way they bitch about the dems doing it. neither side is above whoring out for votes.
