1. The Texas Latino GOP PAC released today a Texas poll conducted in 5 of the largest urban counties in Texas, among 500 Republican Primary voters, which was designed to test a new GOP approach for campaigning for the Hispanic vote in 2020 and to identify Democratic reform proposals that should be the top targets for Republicans to campaign against in 2020.
In the spirit of Fiestas Patrias and Hispanic Heritage Month this poll identifies an independent theme for Republicans to campaign for the Hispanic vote in 2020.
This poll calls for a “Beyond the Wall” strategy for use by Republican candidates and it is based on giving legal status to undocumented immigrant families, who have lived lawfully in Texas, for 7 or more years. This “Family Stabilization Proposal” is not citizenship and, thus non-voting, but allows those illegal immigrant families to gain a legal residence in the United States that provides human dignity without any constraints or prejudices. This new approach for the GOP widens the conversation, which in the recent past, was only a debate between building a wall on the border or amnesty for all those illegal immigrants who “cut in front of the line” and entered into the U.S.
