19. Well, then, I guess Obama made a big mistake in not consulting you before spending so much money on

these ads focusing on immigration, and also made a mistake when he went to a forum on Univision and admitted not passing immigration reform was the biggest mistake of his presidency. His staff which spent so much time on research on every group before making these ads. What a waste of time!|

Obama Immigration Stance Locks In Hispanic Support

By NICHOLAS RICCARDI, THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LAS VEGAS -- Elizabeth Alvisar is exactly the sort of voter Mitt Romney needs.

A victim of the brutal economy in this swing state, the 30-year-old tax preparer has been out of work for months. She's a foe of abortion and gay marriage, and was naturally drawn to the Republican ticket.

But Alvisar has switched her support to President Barack Obama because of his support for legislation known as the DREAM Act. While Democrats failed to get the bill through Congress, Obama in August signed a directive that implemented its key provision - allowing young people brought into the country without authorization as children to avoid deportation if they graduate high school or join the military.

"I have a lot of friends who've taken advantage of that opportunity," Alvisar said.

In the heavily Hispanic neighborhood where Alvisar lives, unemployment is high and home values are down. But Obama's immigration stance, and especially his executive order, has locked in support from a fast-growing demographic group that has been trending sharply Democratic in the wake of increasingly hard-line Republican positions on immigration.
