It remains to be seen which exact hill that the Democrats will choose to die on in the 2020 presidential election but amnesty for illegal immigrants is on the list of finalists.
Despite overwhelming evidence that Americans back stricter immigration policies, have no tolerance for the criminal drug gang MS-13 and support border control, the left is hellbent at working hand-in-hand with Chamber of Commerce backed corporations that want cheap labor to depress wages to allow the country to be flooded with millions of illegals.
It’s still well over two years until the real campaigning begins but identity groups are jockeying for pole position to be the most special of all with the issues that will be championed by whichever Dem tomato can is sent out to be crushed by the resilient President Trump.
Former Obama Housing Secretary Julián Castro (pronounced: hoo-lee-AHN) may be mobilizing an army that will put him into the contention at best and at worst, turn him into a kingmaker who prospective nominees will need to kiss his ring in order to get the Latino vote.
Castro is one of the big names heading up the PAC Voto Latino which aims to register at least one million new voters by focusing on seven western states with large Hispanic populations.

Saying that they feel Latinos are in President Donald Trump’s “crosshairs,” Voto Latino, the group committed to engaging and empowering Latinos in politics, is preparing to roll out a campaign to hit 1 million registered voters by 2020.
The roll-out of the new program comes as Voto Latino adds three members to its board, including former Housing Sec. Julián Castro, who is eyeing a presidential bid of his own in 2020.
The new initiative, called Somos Mas (We Are More), will focus on seven states: Texas, Nevada, Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico, Florida and California, including on 27 college campuses spread among them. They’ll also have a digital effort concentrated on North Carolina, Ohio, Georgia and Pennsylvania.
“I gently remind people that once Latinos register, their chance of coming out to vote is 80 percent,” said María Teresa Kumar, Voto Latino’s president, and CEO. “The game is going to be played in seven states.”
We're thrilled to announce that @JulianCastro is joining our board at a pivotal moment for our country. His passion and leadership will help us continue empowering young voters hungry for change. ✊🏾 pic.twitter.com/hDsmcHjBR4
