Comment: National Or Regional Party - Conservatives for Comprehensive Immigration Reform and National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference have called on Republican presidential candidates to reject the anti-immigrant and anti-Hispanic rhetoric permeating Republican primary campaigns. "In particular, we are alarmed by the backlash against Governor Rick Perry's stand on in-state tuition for undocumented children in Texas. We believe his suggestion that those who oppose educating these undocumented children don't 'have a heart' is both biblically and morally correct... Furthermore, we feel that his call for compassion for these children - who are completely innocent of any wrongdoing - is moral and just. His concern that without an opportunity to advance their education these children would become a burden on society has merit. Certainly the argument that with an education they will become a greater source of tax revenue for Texas is indisputable." In 2000, Hispanics accounted for 12.5% of the US population, and by 2010 they accounted for over 16%. Their numbers continue to grow rapidly: one out of every four children under the age of 10 is already Hispanic. Deeply alienating this demographic will lock the Republican Party out of the national offices, and relegate it to a regional one. Please have your say in our letters section or by writing to us at
