Former Republican gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman said Tuesday that her party must change its approach on immigration if it wants to be successful in California.
“My view is that the immigration discussion, the rhetoric the Republican Party uses, is not helpful; it’s not helpful in a state with the Latino population we have,” Whitman said during a brief interview following a speech at a George W. Bush Institute conference on the economy. “We as a party are going to have to make some changes, how we think about immigration, and how we talk about immigration.”
In her remarks, among the first made by the former EBay chief since she spent $144 million of her fortune on her campaign loss to Democrat Jerry Brown, Whitman did not offer specific prescriptions.
Oh I get it – pander to the Hispanic vote so YOU can win an election. This will NEVER happen.
How about supporting sound government, including immigration policies, soliciting input of the Hispanic/Latino communities and communicate your ideas better?
And, most importantly, treating your Hispanic housekeeper like a true member of your family instead of kicking them out of their job and saying you don’t know me and I don’t know you.
