Hungarian Jew billionaire George Soros has announced that he is putting $5 million into a new political action committee designed solely to mobilize Hispanics into a nonwhite anti-Trump voting bloc.
The blatant racially-based political mobilization—which Soros would be among the first to call “racist” if it were done by whites—will take the form of the “Immigrant Voters Win PAC,” and will help to coordinate the effects of a number of nonwhite political groups.
According to an article in the New York Times, Soros’s $5 million “campaign to mobilize Latinos and other immigrants” hopes to “channel outrage at the political rhetoric of Donald J. Trump and other Republicans into a surge of votes for Democratic candidates in November.”
The paper said that the nonwhite racial mobilization would be the “largest Democratic voter-turnout effort ever devoted exclusively to Latino and immigrant voters.”
Most of the money will be spent through organizations in Colorado, Florida, and Nevada, states with large Hispanic populations which will be “pivotal in the presidential race and in the battle for control of the Senate.”
The organizers hope to get at least 400,000 “new” Democratic voters to the polls in the November presidential elections, even though the campaign includes “knocking on doors, calling and sending mailings to reach 728,000 voters—mainly Latinos and Asians—in Colorado, Nevada, and Florida.”
Hispanics are already a large enough share of voters in those three states to sway the outcome of close races.
“This is really taking the gloves off,” said Cristóbal Alex, president of the overtly-racially-based “Latino Victory Project,” described as “one of several national pro-immigration or Hispanic-oriented groups working with the super PAC.”
He went to claim that Trump’s proposed wall would break apart “millions of families” and that the country was “on the precipice.”
Soros said he had found Trump’s campaign pronouncements to be “deeply offensive. It is harmful to our democracy and to our national interests. There should be consequences for the outrageous statements and proposals that we’ve regularly heard.”
Meanwhile, another article in the New York Times titled “More Latinos Seek Citizenship to Vote against Trump,” said that there was now a “rush by many Latino immigrants to naturalize in time to vote in November.”
Naturalization applications have increased by 11 percent in 2015, and jumped 14 percent during the six months ending in January, according to federal figures.
It is estimated that the final figure could be around one million in 2016, about 200,000 more than the average in recent years.
Of the 8.8 million legal residents eligible to naturalize, about 2.7 million are Mexicans.
In a poll of Hispanic voters conducted at the end of February by the Washington Post and Univision, the Spanish language television network, 80 percent of respondents had an “unfavorable” view of Trump, including 72 percent with a “very unfavorable” view, far more than for other Republican candidates.
