The following letter was sent to Latina Lista from Romney’s campaign headquarters.
November 8, 2007
Dear Ms. Rosabal:
Thank you for inviting me to take part in Univision’s Republican Presidential Forum scheduled for December 9 in Miami. I very much appreciate the invitation and look forward to participating in this historic event.
Members of the Hispanic community have made many truly significant contributions to our nation through their patriotism, hard work, entrepreneurship, faith in God, love of family and respect for human life. Their talents and ambition have helped make the United States a great nation.
I look forward to addressing Univisionâ€™s audience and discussing my ideas to strengthen America through stronger families, a stronger economy and a stronger military. These are the values that have attracted millions of Hispanics to the Republican Party, and I believe they will continue to do so in the future.
Will the other GOP candidates follow suit?
I would like to see how Romney responds to a Latino audience given the pressure he’ll be under from his base not to capitulate on immigration.
Hopefully he will be honest about his opposition to illegal immigration and his plans to put an end to it instead of pandering to an ethnocentric special interest group for votes.
Deport Lou Dobbs
How ironic that a man whose ancestors crossed the border (USA into Mexico) to flee prosection for engaging in illegal activity is against people crossing the border to seek a better life.
Dobbs, so Romney is responsible for his ancestor’s actions? How so?

Same song, second verse. If you have no other outlet, blame or revere ones ansestors. This shows how backwards thinking most of the pro-immigration and pro-illegal alien bunch really are. The issues of today have nothing to do with what happened in the past. Dredging up Romneys past has meant nothing to those facing real issues, in real time, persent and future.

Citing the distant past, one that so far removed from present life in this country, is the only thing they have to cling to, as their weak convoluted arguments have no merit and are thus unconvincing.
Here’s a bit of ignorance for you. I heard one Joe Rios at the BlueLatino blog claim, that since George Meade, the famous Union Civil War general was born in Spain, he was Hispanic. Mr. Rios failed to do his homework, as it turned out that Meade’s family was Irish-American, and that his father was in the U.S. diplomatic service and assigned to Spain at the time. These people will grasp at anything, true or false to make their points.
This same Joe Rios used the argument that the fact that Mexico refused to join with Germany in WWI against the U.S. was an act of good will. Mexico refused in the famous Zimmerman letter by saying that saying that they thought the supply lines to Germany would be too long (true) and that they didn’t think that they could control the civilian population whose land they would occupy. Some good friend, eh? Sorry, reconquistas, but you missed your best chance 90 years ago.
Check out BlueLatinos.org for a laugh. Beware, Joe is long-winded and doesn’t understand paragraphing.
Horace, although I don’t read Blue Latinos (once or twice long ago) I am familiar with Joel Rios. He is always lamenting about how Hispanics don’t get any recognition for their military contributions here in the U.S. He plays victimhood to the hilt for the raza.
