Independent Republican Leaders Vainly Attempt to WOO Latino Voters WITHOUT their Party Members' Consent!

Like a secret liaison, some Republican leaders, including John Boehner, are attempting to woo Latino voters. Republican lawmakers on Thursday signaled a willingness to tackle immigration reform measures, specifically those relating to skilled worker visas. Led by (Republican) Virginia's Bob Goodlatte, the House Republican Technology Working Group released its list of top technology concerns relating to economic growth in the U.S. Under the banner of "Ensuring American Access to the Best Workers," the group said it would "examine current visa and immigration laws to make sure we attract and retain the best and brightest minds from around the world."

In addition to skilled workers, the group announced that it would also focus on access to network spectrum, cyber security issues, intellectual property protections, fair trade agreements, tax code and regulation reform. While the GOP has historically championed free trade, tax reform and decreased regulation, the group's embrace of immigration -- however limited -- was hailed by reform groups as a step forward.

Rebecca Peters, the director and counsel for legislative affairs at the American Council on International Personnel, told Huff Post that the GOP agenda was "very encouraging." Her business advocacy group sees the recent bipartisan political movement -- including the president's immigration speech in El Paso, Texas, last month and the 2010 Republican plan for job creation -- as evidence that reform might be on the horizon.

Compete America Executive Director Scott Corley, whose advocacy group focuses on immigration concerns for skilled workers, said in a statement, "We applaud the House Republican Technology Working Group for emphasizing the link between access to top talent and U.S. job creation. We encourage the growing list of supporters on both sides of the aisle to turn their talk into action.” (see the rest of the article here.)

One can only speculate: Some republicans are looking to woo Latino Voters. However, most logical American Latinos will NOT buy their behind the scenes attempts!

The Republicans will never get the Hispanic vote because they will never cave in to their demands of amnesty and will never treat them special like they think they are entitled to be. Republicans do what is best for this country not some special interest group that thinks their kind is above our laws.
