GOP courting Latino voters

Watch Bill Schneider's report on how the GOP is courting the Latino vote.

(CNN)–Republican candidates have been speaking with two voices to Latino voters. The evidence suggests that Latinos have noticed. CNN's Bill Schneider takes a look.

    First, get rid of the ILLEGAL CRIMINALS. Then, court the hispanics. Otherwise, it's putting justice on hold to suck up and get votes. America needs to secure its borders before we do anything else!

    We welcome you to come into our country illegally to do the jobs Americans wont do. Just dont bring in a nucular bomb or ask for a decent wage.

    The anti-Christian, minority-hating Republican party is using Latinos for their votes while trying to kick them out of the country. Jesus would have welcomed illegal immigrants with open arms rather than throw them in jail! I hope Latinos are smart enough not to believe all the LIES from Republicans.

    I can only assume the GOP feels Latino voters are as ignorant and can be manipulated as well as the Republican partys' other voting blocs.

    Let's jettison this ridiculous rhetoric, and then discuss this issue like normal human beings. Oh, in America we can't do that, huh? Well, in that case, I will say the following:
    1.) My wife, who is British and speaks three languages fluently ( many do you speak fluently, by the way?...), has to wait a year (we're still waiting) until she can come and live legally in the U.S.
    2.) Building walls (like the Chinese and, later, the Soviets in East Germany) is stupid, myopic, and idiotic. We ripped-down walls; the totalitarians built them up. What does the fact that we are thinking about building walls to keep folks out say about us now?
    3.) We must streamline legal immigration procedures while punishing people who hire illegal immigrants. That's called common sense. Let's wake up and embrace it.

    I think given the choice, most undocumented aliens will (illegally and in great numbers) cast their votes for Democratic candidates who tend to encourage their lawlessness under the misguided belief that U.S. jobs, education, and welfare benefits are some sort of human-born right.

    Latino U.S. citizens, however - who are if anything even more sick of having their entire culture misrepresented and stigmatized by illegals - would be wise to support positions generally taken by the Republicans.

    While listening to Dana Basch's report this morning on Huckabee, on what he has said in the past, I wondered why she didn't report on his view of women.

    While listening to NPR yesterday, they brought up some comments he made in the past, that in my opinion would take woman back about 100 years.

    You know, the typical things, like the man should be head of the household.

    Please tell me why she didn't report on this.

    Thank you.
