GOP Sides With Trump In Mexican Immigrant Flap

Hispanic leaders are bristling at the largely tepid response by Republican presidential candidates to Donald Trump's characterization of Mexican immigrants as rapists and drug dealers. Several 2016 contenders have brushed off Trump's comments--while others have ignored them. Marco Rubio, a Florida senator who is Hispanic, denounced them as "not just offensive and inaccurate, but also divisive." His denunciation came, however, after declining for two weeks to address the matter directly.
