National Tequila Party Movement founder, Dee Dee Garcia-Blase
AIR DATE: September 2, 2011
As an answer to the Tea Party, an Hispanic activist in Las Vegas wondered out loud whether Latinos needed to form a similar movement to push for immigration reform and the DREAM Act. Dee Dee Garcia-Blase, founder of the nation's largest Republican Hispanic group, Somos Republicans, took the idea and formed The National Tequila Party Movement. Garcia-Blase and members of the Tequila Party movement are now traveling the country rallying Latinos to register pushing a pro-immigrant stance. Dee Dee Garcia-Blase joins us to talk about her Republican roots and why she thinks the GOP needs to abandon its position on immigration if it wants Latino support.
