According to a February 17 report by the National Republican Congressional Committee, Hispanic battleground voters believe Republicans in Congress at 42%, can do a better job dealing with jobs and the economy than Democrats in Congress at 35%.

The contentious Growth and Opportunity Project study, pushed by establishment Republicans after Gov. Mitt Romney was severely defeated by President Barack Obama in 2012, focused on the need for expanded amnesty and immigration.

By rejecting that idea, House Republicans are effectively siding with their constituents and voters over the interests of large corporations and farming enterprises seeking to exploit cheap labor to keep prices low and profits high.
