Conveniently-timed for Obama’s reelection, the Hispanic and Women Farmers and Ranchers Claims Resolution program began September 24, 2012 – just a month-and-a-half before the election. Apparently the Obama administration did not care about this alleged injustice to females and Hispanics any time in the past three-and-a-half years. It just happened to be thought about and addressed now – just before voters pull the lever.
Hispanics are the focus as the race for the White House moves to Florida, a presidential battleground where a charged immigration debate is under way as President Barack Obama seeks to keep Republican challenger Mitt Romney on the defensive.
The Department of State will instruct elections supervisors to contact voters on a list of potential non-citizens and tell them they are eligible to cast ballots as part of a settlement reached Wednesday with groups who sued claiming the list purge was discriminatory because it mostly targeted Hispanics.
Mitt Romney is taking an economic-focused message directly to Hispanic leaders, facing a large gathering of the influential voting bloc for the first time since immigration was thrust into the forefront of the presidential contest.
