Alter: Latinos Will Revere Obama Like Appalachians Did FDR (NewsBusters)

The Newsweek alumnus made those remarks on the November 19 edition of Hardball, during a panel discussion on immigration reform and the president's planned executive-order amnesty. Alter also rehashed the tired conventional wisdom that if Republicans oppose a "pathway to citizenship" for illegals, they will demographically doom themselves to permanent minority status with the changing demographics of America, wherein Hispanics are a rising share of the population.
