The largest anti-immigrant organizations have deep ties to Planned Parenthood, and are not conservative at all! The ‘Tanton network’ is an unholy alliance of population control liberals and anti-immigrant bigots, and wants not only strict enforcement of immigration laws, but drastic cuts in LEGAL immigration as well!

Ann Coulter wrote an outrageous column trashing all Hispanics as lazy, welfare moochers, permanent underclass, etc. This Cafe Con Leche Republican blog debunked her claims with hard and credible statistics.

A Mississippi Democratic legislator introduced a ridiculous bill to rename the “Gulf of Mexico” as the “Gulf of America” to widespread outrage. He later claimed his bill was satire, which many did not find humorous at all! This Cafe Con Leche Repubicans news release resulted in news stories appearing in hundreds of newspapers in both the U.S. and Latin America.

Eva Longoria retweeted “‘I have no idea why any woman/minority can vote for Romney. You have to be stupid to vote for such a racist/misgynistic twat.’ We found her comment outrageous and an affront to minority and women conservatives, and demanded an apology. This story had a happy ending, however, when Eva Longoria apologized and reached out to Cafe Con Leche Republicans to work together with us on immigration reform. Apparently Eva Longoria has more class than Ann Coulter, who has yet to apologize for any of her outrageous behavior, such as trashing Hispanics or calling Obama a “retard”!

Among the more outrageous practices of the Obama administration is the systematic refusal to recognize the citizenship of thousands of Latinos born in the U.S. by midwives.

Following the meltdown of the Minutemen movement following the massacre by minutemen of a family of Mexican-American family of U.S. Citizens near the border in Arizona, minutemen Tim Donnelly and Gregg Imus wormed their way into the tea party movement and GOP. This Cafe Con Leche Republicans blog exposes Donnelly and Imus, founder and co-founder of the California Minutemen, and the criminal behavior of Minutemen. Incredibly, despite his criminal record and poor judgement, Tim Donnelly wants to run for Governor of California!

Cafe Con Leche Republicans asked Sheriff Babeu to quit the race for Congress. Babeu eventually dropped out of the race when it became obvious he could not win the GOP primary. Note: we don’t have an issue with his sexual orientation, but the allegations of intimidation and extortion show an underlying lack of character.
