It is unclear if the pro-LGBTI wording will cause a mass defection of support for this bill, but it seems to have a few powerful supporters in Congress right now. In many ways, this bill will only fail if these groups choose to remove themselves from the process over the rights of others no matter how much they may think that their behaviors and their lives are abhorrent. There was a time when Hispanics were treated as abhorrent, filthy, lazy, amoral and stupid. One only needs to look back at Slow-Poke Rodriguez, cousin of Speedy Gonzales, to see some of those stereotypes in action. Many Latinos suffer inequities and deprived conditions in the United States currently. Back in the 1980’s I lived in Florida and I remember the laws which made it impossible for Latino children to get educations because the laws prevented them from entering school mid-year. Perhaps these groups should remember what it is to be repressed before they start throwing their hands in the air and running away.
