Latinos Are Pissed at Obama — but They’re Still Getting Out the Vote
Here’s the fundamental paradox among immigration reformers. For the most part, the people who follow policy closely enough to feel most betrayed by President Obama are also the people who follow politics closely enough to understand how important it is that Republicans not control Congress. That’s true of advocates and organizers outside DC as well.
So, for example, in Colorado — the one 2014 Senate race in a state with a large Latino population — the Colorado Immigrant Rights Coalition is simultaneously organizing civil disobedience against Sen. Michael Bennet, who isn’t up for re-election this year, and trying to mobilize thousands of Latino voters to turn out for Sen. Mark Udall, who is.
