Comment: Wooing Hispanic Voters - Since South Carolina the Republican Presidential candidates have changed their tune on immigration, and are vying with each other to win over 450,000 Hispanic Republican primary voters in Florida. It is worth paying close attention to their efforts in Florida, because winning a significant percentage of the Hispanic vote in the general election is critical to any Republican aspirations to the White House. Jeb Bush offers advice on ways Republicans can win Hispanics back: by showing respect and understanding for their experiences, by relating to their aspirations, by pressing for overhaul of the educational system, and most importantly by thinking of immigration reform as an economic issue, not just a border security issue. "Hispanics recognize that Democrats have failed to deliver on immigration reform, having chosen to spend their political capital on other priorities. Republicans should reengage on this issue and reframe it. Start by recognizing that new Americans strengthen our economy. We need more people to come to this country, ready to work and to contribute their creativity to our economy. U.S. immigration policies should reflect that principle. Just as Republicans believe in free trade of goods, we should support the freer flow of human talent." Please let us know your thoughts by writing to us at
