CHR Endorses Steve House for CO GOP Chair
Colorado Hispanic Republicans hereby endorses Steve House for the office of Colorado Republican Party Chairman.
The time for new leadership in the Colorado GOP is now. Steve endorses the idea of a bigger tent party to include all the minority coalitions which have worked diligently towards attracting more voters to the Republican cause.
Steve House has a vision to grow the party infrastructure using modern methods, giving us better tools which will propel the party towards victories in upcoming elections. Steve’s business background and success demonstrates an ability to lead our party. He will trust and ensure that all staff members of the state GOP are utilized to the their full potential.
As a coalition Republican organization we are committed to doing our part to grow the voter base among Hispanic voters. Steve understands the importance of the work performed by groups like Colorado Hispanic Republicans. He has pledged his support of our important mission, and if elected, the support of the state party apparatus.
Steve’s vision for the Colorado Republican party is to work closely with county leaders in order to ensure their local success, to help identify qualified candidates for offices at all levels, and to implement exciting new ideas to grow and improve the Republican brand and image in the state of Colorado among all voters.
For these reasons and several more, we would urge the voting members of the CRC to elect Steve House as Chairman of the Colorado GOP at the State Central Committee Meeting on March 14, 2015.
CHR Endorses Derrick Wilburn for CO GOP Vice Chair
The Colorado Hispanic Republicans have known Derrick for several years and have witnessed his tireless efforts to deliver the conservative message to the black community through his organizations, American Conservatives of Color and Rocky Mountain Black Conservatives.
His vision, and common sense ideas, for a big tent Republican Party is critical to moving our party towards being more inclusive of minorities. It is not a secret that without a significant increase of voters from the Black and Hispanic communities in particular, Republicans will have a difficult, if not impossible, task of winning future elections.
The current state GOP administration has not demonstrated an understanding of the importance of supporting minority coalitions. The Colorado Hispanic Republicans speak from experience when we say that they have done little more than pay lip service to this important cause.
New leadership in the chairman and vice-chair positions is critical at this time. We need fresh and innovative ideas with a new leadership team that will actually take a hands on approach to changing the face of the Republican party without compromising conservative ideals.
Colorado Hispanic Republicans urge you to support Derrick Wilburn for the office of Vice-Chair in the Colorado Republican Party.

Conservative & Economic Hispanic Colorado Leaders Call for Congressional Action to Fix our Outdated Immigration System

CONSERVATIVE & ECONOMIC HISPANIC COLORADO LEADERS CALL FOR CONGRESSIONAL ACTION TO FIX OUR OUTDATED IMMIGRATION SYSTEM
DENVER, COLORADO — A coalition of local conservative and economic Hispanic leaders announce their support for congressional action to fix our outdated immigration system through legislation, not executive order. Colorado members of this coalition include: Hugo Chavez-Rey, Chairman of the Colorado Hispanic Republicans, and the leaders listed below.
“As Congress moves into the lame duck session, the president has regrettably decided to act unilaterally, and unconstitutionally in the immigration debate.
“A Presidential Executive Order does not adequately address the root causes and complex issues of our outdated immigration system. We need a common sense approach to this problem and a market based immigration system that drives our economy, and attracts as well as retains workers for our laboratories, financial institutions, health care facilities, technology companies, and farms across Colorado and the nation. This requires Congressional legislation.
“Colorado conservative Hispanic leaders are dedicated to fostering the necessary changes to our existing and outdated immigration laws and are disappointed that the President has chosen to play politics with the immigration issue.
“We, the undersigned Hispanic leaders, hereby call on Congress to make immigration reform a top priority in the new session and present to the President a bill to sign. We believe that Executive Order action is nothing more than a band aid approach to a complex problem, and it will only serve to create more division within our country.”

Hispanic Heritage Month
Colorado Hispanic Republicans are proud to join the celebrations during Hispanic Heritage Month. It’s actually only two weeks, but who’s quibbling?
Americans of Hispanic descent have a long history of contributions to this great nation we call home. We have come from a variety of Hispanic countries, all in search of the American Dream of opportunity, freedom, and a better life for ourselves and our families.
Hispanics have a long and rich tradition of military service in the U.S. Armed Forces dating back to the American Revolution. A total of 61 Americans of Hispanic descent have received the the nations highest military honor, the Congressional Medal of Honor.
Hispanics gaining clout in elections
A fast-growing Hispanic population will have increasing importance in Colorado and national elections, statistics from a new report show.
Health Care Plan
The White House’s failed rollout of its Spanish-language health care website, CuidadoDeSalud.gov, is already a laughingstock. Much like its English language counterpart, the site is filled with technical issues, mistranslations, and links to English-only pages and forms.
But the joke is on Hispanics and Latinos like myself.
The Border Crisis?
(This article was originally published on the National Journal)
The false illusion Americans once held about the security of our nation’s borders has been shattered. Those were days of innocence. Now we face an Immigration swell driven in part by cartel activity, gang violence, and human sex trafficking—as well as an ill-advised executive action. It has become a crisis we did not ask for, but it is a crisis we are now forced to reckon with.
The arrival of thousands of needy Central American children is testing America. It has exposed a deficiency in leadership, tried our compassion, and forced us to acknowledge our weakness in guarding our borders.
Daniel Garza, Executive Director for The LIBRE Initiative, joins Jose Díaz-Balart on MSNBC in Los Angeles to discuss the immigration crisis that has risen during the recent weeks and the urgent need for immigration reform.
We’re here for you
Hispanics and the American Dream
A new initiative helps promote the ideals of liberty, hard work, and self-reliance.
By Rachel Campos-Duffy
The Obama economy has not been kind to Hispanics.
Hispanic Unemployment remains in double digits. Since 2008, Hispanic family income has dropped by $2,500 and 2.5 million more Latinos have fallen into Poverty . And yet, when polled, Hispanics remain optimistic about their future, with a full 76 percent saying they believe their children will do better than they. This is in stark contrast to the majority of Americans, who tell pollsters that they do not expect their children to fare better economically. While today most Americans are gloomy about the prospects for future generations, Hispanic Americans are still bullish on the American dream.
