Republicans Beware: Latino Groups Warn Congress to Fix Immigration, or Else

Julia Preston of the N.Y. Times reports that the nation’s largest Latino organizations yesterday warned Congressthat they will keep a report card during the immigration debate next year, with plans to mobilize their voters against lawmakers who do not support a comprehensive immigration bill. At a news conference, seven Latino groups and a labor union "were showing their muscle, after the record turnout of Hispanic voters in the November elections played a pivotal role in President Obama’s re-election victory." Janet Murguía, the president and CEO of National Council of La Raza, "said the election had been a `game-changer' that conclusively `made the political case for a bipartisan solution' on immigration."
