“We’re missing the big picture here,” he told the panel. “We’re all assuming Hispanics are going to be for this. If right now if we don’t have a majority of Hispanics who want him to do this by fiat, we could very much have in the next election the same thing that happened in this election. Of course, Hispanics are not going to vote for Republicans, but they could stay home. A lot of them already see this as pandering.”

“Why, when he had of the control the Congress, why don’t he give them immigration reform that was durable? Or why not give bipartisan immigration?” Fournier asked. “…Hispanics know when they’re being pandered to and they’re being used politically, and they can see through this.”
