Florida Republicans Send Dire Warning to Party—Change Immigration Policy or GOP Will Die


Ramsey Touchberry for Newsweek reports that Florida Republican leaders warn that without a major change in immigration policy, GOP wins may be a thing of the past. Those with ties to Florida's immigration business community who have long supported Republicans said they are furious with the Governor, one of the Sunshine State's newest members of Congress, and the Republican Party's refusal to support legislation that would make inroads with Latino voters. Instead, they said, they want Governor Scott and other GOP lawmakers to take a cue from Florida's other Republican senator: Marco Rubio.  "The party needs to understand what America will look like in 10 to 20 years and stay relevant," said former Florida Republican Party Chairman Al Cárdenas, a Cuban-American. "I don't think we're doing a good job on policy, tone, content and inclusiveness."
