Pat Robertson and Samuel Rodriguez talk Immigration Reform
As Hispanic voters grow in number and influence (Hispanics are the fastest-growing segment of America's electorate), some conservatives wonder why Republican candidates don't spend more time reaching out to them instead of joking about an electric fence.
According to Jennifer Korn, with the Hispanic Leadership Network, although most Latinos identify themselves as Democrats, "when you ask about the specific issues they all trend conservative. We're talking about issues in the economy, smaller government, even religion."
Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, appeared on "The 700 Club" today to talk to Pat Robertson about why Republicans need the Latino vote, educating undocumented teenagers, and the way he believes Jesus would have Christians approach immigration reform.
