Republican Fundraisers Trying to Hoodwink Latinos

We all know that republicans have a neanderthal stance against immigration. Many in the party scapegoat immigrants for the nation's problems. But that isn't stopping republican groups from going after Latino groups:
At a time when the Republican presidential primary race has featured increasingly tough stances against illegal immigration, the independent groups have begun an aggressive program of outreach to Hispanics, hoping to offset Democratic gains among a critical voting bloc.

And they are planning to coordinate offensives in states like North Carolina and Pennsylvania, where money and organizing could pay dividends simultaneously in the presidential, Congressional and local legislative races. NYT
