National Hispanic Inclusion Director for Newt Gingrich's campaign
On Thursday, Mitt Romney will address the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials. Romney’s challenge will be to find some way to contend with Obama’s announcement last Friday that undocumented immigrant youth will be able to stay in the United States and have the opportunity to apply for work permits.
With three different victors in Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina, whichever candidate carries Florida will have a decisive lead. And key to taking Florida is swaying Latino voters. However, Governor Jeb Bush has been hesitant to speak out or endorse any of the frontrunners because of their immigration policies: Romney wants to make English the official language of government and opposes the Dream Act while Gingrich favors tightening border security and proposes visa reform.
