Hispanic GOP Group Writes Open Letter to Herman Cain

Hispanic GOP Group Writes Open Letter to Herman Cain

"In recent months, you have told audiences that as president you will build a “Great Wall of China” with an electrified fence and alligator-filled moat. One time you even compared immigrants to invading Huns. Then, as these speeches become controversial, you tried to evade criticism claiming the proposal was all just a joke.  Mr. Cain, jokes involving killing people is not a suitable topic for a joke. Hundreds of migrants die crossing our Southern border each year, and as a result this is an extremely sensitive topic, especially among most of America’s 51 million Hispanics. I’m sure most Americans would not appreciate jokes about 9-11, and most blacks would not appreciate jokes about hanging blacks either. Please refrain from ever repeating this proposal again."
