Immigration Impasse: Frustration as Comprehensive Reform Legislation Stalled

That remark drew a swift rebuke from Hispanic Republican lawmakers, who said Democrats don't entirely represent Hispanic values.

"The number-one issue in the Hispanic community in America is economic empowerment, the desire to leave their children better off than themselves," said Florida Republican U.S. Senate candidate Marco Rubio. "And so that's why Hispanics should be Republicans, and I believe a growing number of Hispanics will become Republicans because the agenda Reid supports kills Hispanic dreams for their children."

Whether more Hispanics "become Republicans" in the wake of legislative inaction by a Democratically-controlled Congress and with a Democrat in the White House will become clear in November and elections in the years ahead.
