The GOP's Alienation of Latino Voters

Thomas B. Edsall  on The Huffington Post (here) writes about the GOP hard line on immigration refom as alienating Latino voters and possibly affecting elections for years to come.  Recall Pete Wilson?  Most folks don't.  He disappeared after getting re-elected as California's Governor in 1994 based in no small part on his support for the anti-immigrant Proposition 187.  At least for a time, California Latinos abandoned Wilson and the Republican Party.  For over a decade, Republican candidates carefully avoided Wilson's mistake.  We will see what happens in Election 2008.
