Hyundai’s corporate headquarters may be in Seoul, but the company has enormous influence over Alabama politicians. And, Alabama’s elected officials have been more than willing to open the state’s coffers to Hyundai.

I’m about to board a 14 hour flight to Seoul, South Korea, where a delegation of national civil and labor rights leaders will tell Hyundai shareholders that their company’s decision to brush aside requests to help repeal Alabama’s anti-immigrant law is unacceptable. A few weeks ago, civil, human rights, and labor organizations sent a letter to these auto giants, and asked them to take a stand against H.B. 56. None of them have.

Emotion over illegal immigration and a lack of understanding between politicians and farmers is hampering efforts to bring much-needed migrant labor into the U.S., a noted farmer, philanthropist and author said Thursday.

The debate over how badly Republicans have damaged themselves among Latinos during the nomination battle understandably focuses on their efforts to woo primary voters by outshouting one another with ever-more-incendiary immigration rhetoric. But what if Latinos also agree with Dems about health care, jobs and the economy?
