The Republicans passed a law making it a felony to be an undocumented immigrant. (Obviously targeted at Mexicans, not Canadians or Europeans, talking about how "they" will do certain jobs that "we" won't...)
Hispanics - incuding American citizens - react to the racist insult with mass demonstrations. They are obviously angry enough to vote in large numbers.
How do the Republicans solve the huge problem they created for themselves? Very simple, do what Republicans always do -- just lie. Republicans are running Spanish-language ads saying that this was a Democratic bill, passed by Democrats. Also this from AP.
The Seeing the Forest Rule: When Republicans accuse, it means they are doing what they are accusing of.
Update - More here.

Personally, I think the guilty include both parties. The GOP for sponsoring pro-hate legislation. But the Dems should have responded last December with their own radio campaign.
They are responsible for the vacuum that the GOP is filling now.
Getting the message out is an integral role a party exists for. And the Dem Party too often just stands around, shrugging.
