Isn't Senator Harry Reid the one who said that he didn't know why any Hispanics would vote for a Republican.♠
Per Ed Morrissey, formerly of Captain's Cabin fame, where he brought down the then Canadian Government,♥ we have this little tidbit about Senator Reid, back in the time after William Jefferson Clinton was elected President. Senator Reid introduced a bill to deny US citizenship to those born here, but not of a US Mother (some exceptions in the details of the bill). But, you know where this was aimed in 1993—illegal immigrants.
Well, the fact is that it has been almost two decades and things may have changed.
I think what Senator Reid means is that he doesn't know how any illegal immigrant can be a Republican. Polling in Arizona suggests US citizens of Hispanic heritage are finding their mileage differs.
Senator Reid is such a political poser.

♠ In his own words, "I don’t know how anyone of Hispanic heritage could be a Republican. ‘Kay? Do I need to say more?"
♥ There was a scandal and the Canadian Government was keeping it from the Press and the People by saying it was under judicial action. Mr Morrissey, being in the US, could publish leaks without fear of being shut down and hauled into court. Let us hear it for the Internet, where interested Canadians were going to see what was happening in their own nation.
