Democrats and many Republicans see the growing Latino population as a boon to the Democratic Party. That is far from the truth.
Several years ago I took a business trip with a Latino associate. During the trip he mentioned that he was involved with LULAC and Democratic politics. He asked me a question about my political beliefs.
'Both parties will tell you anything to get your vote,' I started. 'But Democrats generally are controlled by Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry. Plus the Republicans are pro-family. I don't particularly like the Republican Party, but have no choice'.
He paused and said. 'You know those are Mexican values. I guess I am going to have to change my party affiliation to Republican.'
Many Mexican arrivals are involved the Catholic Church, which Obama took on as president. As the new arrivals settle in, they will gravitate toward the Republicans.
Recently, many Latinos began breaking with Democrats over DACA. The Democrats turned down Trumps generous offer concerning DACA and many Latinos are mad.
