Immigration reform 2015 news: Hillary Clinton says will ensure complete citizenship to undocumented immigrants
Immigration reform or lack of it is going to be undoing of Republicans in the US presidential elections 2016. While it is still not clear as to who will be eventual presidential candidate as far as Republicans and even Democrats are concerned, what is sure is the fact that GOP seem to be mired in issues that have put it at certain disadvantage, irrespective of the fact whoever is its final candidate.
Republicans are going to face the consequences of their wayward behavior as far as immigration reform is concerned. They have taken the common people as complete fools without bothering to see as to how its long-term consequences are going to be. They have frustrated not just 12 million undocumented immigrants but many more people who have been supporters of immigration reforms and believe that these people should be absorbed legally in the US.
Hillary Clinton, who is a shrewd politician, knows well that this group can tilt the balance in her favor in coming days. She recently stunned everyone including Latino activists when she demanded a â€œpath to full and equal citizenshipâ€ for around 12 million undocumented immigrants in the US.
While talking recently at a Nevada High School, the former secretary of state rejected the notion of a mere path to legalization attacking it as a code for second class status. She promised to go much further than even President Obama’s recent executive action and “defer” deportation proceedings not only against some illegal immigrants, but virtually all of them, while working toward comprehensive immigration reform that included citizenship.
Without minority and Latino votes, a Republican candidate is not expected to win. The percentage of white voters in US population is going down and that of minority and Latinos is going up. A report says, â€œâ€¦Mitt Romney got 59 percent of the white vote in 2012, the highest percentage of any Republican challenging an incumbent president, and still lost because he got only 18 percent of the overall minority vote and 27 percent of the Latino vote. However, the white share of the national electorate is on track to drop by three percentage points (from 72 percent in 2012 to 69 percent in 2016) â€” and the minority share, likewise, to rise by the same amountâ€¦This means that the GOP candidate has to do one of two things to win against Clinton: Improve his or her performance with whites to about 65 percentâ€¦or boost his or her minority vote to 30 percentâ€.
