Univision’s Jorge Ramos penned a column in Spanish Tuesday warning House Republicans that if they torpedo immigration reform, they will lose the Hispanic vote and the White House in 2016.
By attacking a group that represents the fasting growing constituency in the United States, Ramos wrote that it often seems the GOP is following a plan devised by its worst enemy.
He then put the blame in House Speaker John Boehner’s (R-OH) hands, asking; “Does John Boehner really want to be the new villian of the Hispanic community, replacing the hated Sheriff Joe Arapaio?”
Arpaio is the police sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona who has been an outspoken proponent for strict immigration enforcement.
“We will see,” Ramos answered.
