Phoenix, AZ -- The largest Hispanic Republican group in the Country is endorsing Newt Gingrich as the 2012 Republican Nominee. We believe Newt Gingrich knows the importance of the Latino community. 50 million Latinos comprise 16% of our country’s population today. Half of our country’s population growth in the next 20 years will be generated by the growth in the Latino population. Latinos have become a key driver of our nation’s future. While the other candidates seem oblivious to this fact, Newt Gingrich has been working hard for many years to include American Hispanics in the overall conversation for a better America.
We are also sad to see Jon Huntsman withdraw from the Republican primary election race because we believe he took a humanitarian approach in supporting children via the Federal DREAM Act. We are disappointed in learning that Huntsman will support Mitt Romney which is unfortunate because Romney takes an unhumanitarian approach to the DREAM Act and legal immigration reform. Recently 2012 Republican Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney stated he will veto the DREAM Act, therefore, SOMOS REPUBLICANS will veto Romney at the polls.
