Hispanics could change electoral map
As Texas' Hispanic population grows, many analysts predict we'll soon replace Ohio as the new swing state by 2016.
That means both Republicans and Democrats will have to tailor their campaigns in the years ahead.
LULAC's Baldomero Garza says yes, Latinos want a comprehensive immigration plan, but really, they just want to feel included.
"The parties need to continue to work on their outreach to get people to feel inclusive," says Garza. "And when you go there, and really feel part of it, once we feel part of it we'll participate as much as we can."
Garza insists Latinos have the same concerns as the rest of Americans.
"Basically the economy, jobs, health care, education, good neighborhoods or safe neighborhoods," he says.
Good immigration reform he adds should include Dream Act-type legislation and allowing immigrants to travel to the home country and back safely.
