Politico says that several Democrats consider Curbelo’s bid for membership a political ploy to improve his reelection chances. Also, Curbelo does not back the DREAM Act but “has introduced his own, more conservative version,” Politico reports, “but several Democrats said he should sign on to their bill if he’s sincere about being a productive member of the CHC.”
Because Hispanics must be liberal to join? https://t.co/hXaRy31TSf

Odd qualification to be allowed to be Hispanic.

Hispanic caucus is not about being Hispanic it's about being a D that's Hispanic. If it were about Hispanics that would B only requirement

The Hispanic caucus needs more Republicans. Let ‘em in.
You don’t get to inclusivity by first excluding. https://t.co/lpJwd4ooSk
