As Republicans shift west, attracting Latinos a challenge As the Republican Primaries head out west the GOP faces some resistance from Hispanics in important swing states. “Jesse Gutierrez wants to help Latino voters find their niche in the Grand Old Party. He uses a seven-question survey to peg people as liberal or conservative, believing he will help some Latinos discover they were always meant to be Republicans. But as the GOP primary season pivots toward the West, careening into the Nevada caucus Saturday, the Reno area activist and former Bay Area resident worries Republicans are losing the Latino vote.”

Kansas Immigration Hardliner Fights Plan to Allow Undocumented Workers¬†Immigration hardliner and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, is taking aim at proposed state legislation which would allow undocumented workers to do jobs that cannot be filled by citizens. “Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, architect of some of the most controversial anti-illegal immigrant state laws, now is fighting a proposal in his own state that would allow undocumented immigrants to work in hard-to-fill jobs. The proposal, by business groups, calls for undocumented immigrants to be able to remain in Kansas if they work in jobs in agriculture and other industries that are struggling through labor shortages.”

Holder: No cover-up in ‘Fast and Furious,’ no effort to hide details of the operation Attorney General Eric Holder takes the stand in the House re-iterating that there has been no cover up on the Fast and Furious program. ” Attorney General Eric Holder vigorously denied a “cover-up” by the Justice Department over “Operation Fast and Furious,” telling a House panel investigating the botched gun-running program that he has nothing to hide and suggesting the probe is a “political” effort to embarrass the administration. “There’s no attempt at any kind of cover-up,” Holder told lawmakers well into a hearing about whether he had been forthright in responding to requests of the House Oversight and Government Relations Committee led by Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif.”
