Presente.org: Jeb Bush Bashing Immigrants Isn’t Just Anti-Latino, It’s Bad Politics

Jan. 27, 2015

Statement from Arturo Carmona in response to Jeb Bush’s comments today asking immigrants to “please leave":

“Jeb Bush is apparently putting immigrant and Latino bashing front and center for his Presidential campaign. That’s not just anti-Latino, it’s bad politics. Latinos are more than 10% of the electorate, so before Republicans start the tired game of tripping over each other for the best xenophobic slur or statement, we suggest they look at the numbers. Jeb Bush’s statement amounts to nothing more than the failed self-deportation policies presented by the unsuccessful Mitt Romney campaign in 2012. We don’t care how ‘nice’ Republicans say their deportations policies are, the poll numbers show they will face a unified wall of opposition from Latino voters."
