Immigrant Voters to Gov. Jindal: Just Say 'No' Now & Save Everyone the Bother

Louisiana Governor Has No Chance at White House Bid After Signing On to Anti-Immigrant Lawsuit, Alienating Latinos, Asians, Fastest Growing Electorate in U.S.

Washington, DC—With the announcement of Gov. Bobby Jindal’s presidential exploratory committee today, Lupe Lopez, the Executive Director of the Alliance for Citizenship had the following remarks:

“Just like a lot of the other Republican contenders who’ve joined or hinted at the 2016 presidential race, Bobby Jindal has already alienated the fastest growing segment of the American electorate. He was among the first governors to sign on to the anti-immigrant lawsuit that puts 5 million immigrant workers in limbo and has only offered half-baked proposals that would cost U.S. taxpayers more without any real solution to our broken immigration system and the 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the shadows in America. 

“Jindal should just save everyone the bother because without Latino, Asian, and immigrant voters—he’s got no chance at a White House bid.”
