CIS Releases New Backgrounder

Imagine 2050 Staff • Nov 24, 2011

Last weekend, anti-immigrant organization Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) issued a new Backgrounder entitled Latino Voting in 2010: Partisanship, Immigration Policy, and the Tea Party. In it, author James Gimpel argues that Republicans have been largely unsuccessful in attracting Latino voters to their party–and that immigration policy rarely, if ever, has anything to do with the modest successes they have had. Instead, he argues that “Hispanics, like other ethnic voters, often use surname cues to guide their vote.”
