Because the Hispanic vote will be highly sought after this election year, a clear choice will be made available: Bear the brunt of the cost of Obamacare or vote for a liberalized immigration policy.
Based on the 2010 census, "Private insurance coverage among Hispanic subgroups varied as follows: 39.6 percent of Mexicans, 51.6 percent of Puerto Ricans, 51.6 percent of Cubans, 46.4 percent of other Hispanic and Latino groups." This dilemma is underscored by the fact that only noncitizen Hispanics (non-voters) will benefit from liberal immigration; whereas only citizens who are Hispanics (voters) without health insurance will pay for Obamacare.
