In the wake of the 2008 election, Senator Marco Rubio (R-Florida) has been offering Republicans some thoughts on immigration reform and the Latino vote.  President Obama received more than 70 percent of the Latino vote.  To many Latinos, Republicans have emerged as the supporters of tough-as-nails immigration enforcement and Arizona-like state "self-deportation" laws.  Many Latinos also see the Republicans as anti-"amnesty", anti-"illegals," and, at bottom, Anti-Latino.   

The Atlantic has an interesting feature on Senator Rubio's immigration recent statements -- which Democrats and Republicans should pay heed to in the coming months.
