Founder of Mississippi Republican immigration opposition group: Don't let the Hispanics vote

Dr. Rodney Hunt, founder of the Mississippi Federation for Immigration Reform and Enforcement (MFIRE for short), penned an article in Friday's Clarion-Ledger titled "Would amnesty solve Republicans' problems with Hispanic voters?"

Since his group has the word "enforcement" in its title, how do you think he answered that question?

Dr. Hunt spends the first 2/3rds of his column on stats regarding the number of Hispanic voters and how they lean Democratic.  Then he hits us with this:
Most grassroots conservatives understand that legalization of 11 million illegal aliens would forever transform our country from one that is divided almost 50-50 to a nation of one-party rule by the liberal coalition. This will result in national policies being determined by progressives and consistent losses for conservatives.
That's about as clear an admission one can get that to "conservatives" like Dr. Hunt immigration reform isn't about morality, it's about winning elections.  And if Republicans can just keep non-whites from voting, they can win.

Maybe Chief Justice Roberts can repeat for us his bedtime story about race no longer being an issue in our elections.
