Most of this contribution is expected to be spent on organizations supporting democratic candidate in Florida, Colorado and Nevada states that have most of the Asian and Latino populations which will be pivotal for the presidential race and the battle to control the senate. This outreach is expected to be coordinated through a new “super PAC” foundation called the Immigrant Voters win PAC which will be more partisan and political than past efforts. The goal is not just to persuade the Latinos in the Democratic side to vote for the Democratic party candidate, but to persuade the swing voters to join Democratic movements. The ultimate results expected is to get 400,000 new voters joining the Democrats in November.

According to the president of the Latino Victory Project, Cristobal Alex, he has reiterated that it will involve taking the gloves off. According to Alex, Trump called the Hispanic-oriented groups rapists and thieves right from the first day. He insists that a giant wall built by Trump would break many families apart. Immigrants and Latinos have been considered to sit back and watch as republicans come out in large numbers to vote for their candidates.

 

The donors of Democrats include George Soros and other rich donors who want to ensure Democrats win big in the states occupied mainly by Hispanics and other immigrants. Soros will be contributing $5 million to the super PAC. This spending will represent a return of large-scale spending in politics that made him what he is today. After the $5 million contribution, Soros would have contributed a total of $13 million since the 2004 election.

Soros has also insisted that the intense anti-immigration and anti-Islam rhetoric fueled by Donald Trump is likely to be harmful for the democracy and to the national interests of American. Trump and other Republican candidates have called on a move to block Muslim from entering the United States. Soros has called this move as deeply offensive.
