Yikes. Well, if the GOP wanted to reinforce its brand as being anti-Latino, Don Young (R-AK) might as well be its new poster boy. John Boehner quickly labeled the Congressman's remarks as unacceptable:


"Congressman Young's remarks were offensive and beneath the dignity of
the office he holds," Boehner, R-Ohio, said in a statement. "I don't
care why he said it -- there's no excuse and it warrants an immediate
apology."


Some are already saying this will affect immigration reform politics, though I doubt it will change the equation very much. But it certainly won't help the GOP in its efforts to try and reach out to a more diverse section of the public.
