Presente.org is skeptical about the the 97-page "autopsy" report produced by the Republican National Committee in an effort to re-build the troubled party. The report came out with two important initiatives that are aimed at Latinos and other groups the GOP has trouble reaching: endorsing comprehensive immigration reform and committing to a $10 million outreach effort primarily in minority communities.
"The 'autopsy' report by the Republican National Committee tells us that the GOP recognizes that its future will depend, in no small part on how it sees and treats Latinos" said Arturo Carmona, Executive Director of Presente.org. "Spending millions of dollars on outreach and mouthing 'support' for comprehensive immigration reform sound good, but what matters most is what they say with all that money and whether the GOP moves away from punitive policies like 'border enforcement' that are labeled 'reform.' That's what matters most."
