Asians and Hispanics will be 50 percent of new voters for 21 GOP districts in 2014. They will be 40-49 percent of new voters for 10 districts and 30-39 percent of new voters for 32 other districts. That's 63 Republican controlled districts in which many new voters will care about where their Congressperson stands on issues of immigration reform.
