So they are going to enroll a million Hispanics to vote?

(My new American Thinker post)

We understand that Hispanics groups (financed by Mr. Soros) will work to add a million voters to the rolls: 

Immigrant rights activists have vowed to sign up 1 million immigrants — mostly Mexicans — for citizenship and then quickly register them to vote in time to punish Donald Trump and his fellow Republicans at the polls in November for their harsh rhetoric.

The advocates say the new voters could make a difference in the presidential race, where most of the Republican field has tacked to the right in word and policy, and in key Senate races in Illinois and Florida, where Republicans will be reaching to hang on to critical seats.

So Hispanics are once again going to show up and vote Democrat?  How has that worked out over the years?  

In 2008, Hispanics were a major factor in giving then-senator Obama the keys to the White House.  He walked into the presidency with 60 votes in the U.S. Senate and a nice majority in the House.

Again, how did that work out?  “No muy bien,” or not very well.  Democrat majorities did not pass immigration reform or the DREAM Act, as President Obama promised.

Anyway, the idea is to enroll Hispanics to punish Mr. Trump.

I agree that Mr. Trump often speaks too broadly, whether he is talking about criminals crossing the U.S.-Mexico border or keeping Muslims out of the country for a while.

To be fair, Mr. Trump has identified problems, but his solutions are not sensible, such as shipping back 11 million illegal immigrants.  How is he going to do that?

So it’s understandable that some Hispanics are offended.  Most of the illegals in the U.S. are not rapists or criminals.  They are here because someone is hiring them, and the immigration authorities are not going after the employers.

At the same time, shouldn’t Hispanics be equally offended with President Obama and Democrats?  After all, what’s worse?  A party that tells you what you want to hear to get your vote, or a guy who speaks before thinking through what he says?

They are both bad.  

Last but not least, maybe Hispanics should punish Democrats by considering alternatives to a straight party voting.  Why don’t they try that first?  

P.S. You can listen to my show (Canto Talk) and follow me on Twitter.
