Hispanics Move Right

We are seeing growing Hispanic support at the very time we are insisting on stopping illegal immigration.

A new Wall Street Journal poll contains some big news. Hispanic voters have moved significantly to the right, and are now evenly split in their support between the two parties heading into the 2022 elections.

That’s great news, but here’s my concern: The GOP party establishment and its corporate wing will misread this news and argue that we need to be more open to mass immigration. That would be a huge mistake!

This shift among Hispanic voters began when Trump’s signature issue was securing the border and stopping the slide of working-class wages. This shift is continuing at the same time the GOP is vehemently opposing Biden’s open borders agenda.

Contrary to the “conventional wisdom,” we are seeing growing Hispanic support at the very time we are insisting on stopping illegal immigration.

So, what explains this shift among Hispanic voters?

The big story is not a “Hispanic” story. The big story is that while woke corporate CEOs are leaving the GOP and becoming left-wing Democrats, working-class Americans of all races are shifting to the Republican Party.

Now is the time for Republicans to double down on secure borders. One of their major themes should be, “We cannot continue to undermine working-class Americans by forcing them to compete against slave labor in communist China or against millions of illegal immigrants.”

In addition, we should emphasize values issues, including the sanctity of life and school choice. Finally, the GOP should aggressively call out the Democrats for their drift toward socialism, and it should sound the alarm against the growing danger of Marxism in America. Many Hispanics, as well as other immigrants, came here to escape failed communist/socialist regimes.
