Mitt Romney is having a hard time winning support among Hispanic voters, and they have become such a large and growing part of the electorate, some pundits say he can’t win the White House without them.

By blocking citizenship for Hispanics, are Republicans really trying to impose yet another form of voter suppression with a voting group they are unlikely to win?

“Latino voters, a highly important group for the 2012 election, support the Dream Act by large margins, and most prefer the Democratic plan,” according to the Huffington Post.

Mitt Romney does not support the Dream Act, which would provide a path to citizenship for immigrants. He said he would “veto” the Dream Act if he were president.

Romney’s immigration policy is self-deportation.

Denise Velázquez, executive director of State Voices of Florida, said, “There was no mistake about it. When we minority voters came out in 2008 in unprecedented numbers, they started looking for a way to keep that from happening again.”
