Rob Paral, a Senior Fellow for the IPC, was published yesterday in Politico explaining why Republican lawmakers can't ignore minority voters in regards to immigration reform. The article was based on Paral's recent Special Report for the IPC, "Stepping Up: The Impact of the Newest, Immigrant, Latino, and Asian Voters."
"A recent Immigration Policy Center analysis of demographic and immigration trends shows that many Republican congressional districts are seeing their constituency profiles evolve dramatically, with emerging electorates that care deeply about immigration reform. In fact, according to my research, based on U.S. Census Bureau age and citizenship data, Asian and Latino youth and newly naturalized U.S. citizens will make up 34 percent of newly eligible voters at the time of the 2014 elections in 55 Republican-held congressional districts."
