Uproar Over GOP Hispanic Heritage Month Video

A handful of House Republicans came together to create a video in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, but the feedback hasn't exactly been positive.

YouTube users who watched the video were not impressed by the GOP's efforts to reach out to the Hispanic community. "I'd like to see some real action from the GOP on #immigrationreform," wrote user Melissa Fleck. "And stop giving lip service to one of the most at risk populations in this nation. #thetimeisnow"

Another user, pepa1965, commented, "Show your appreciation with immigration reform."

Immigration reform has been a hot topic of debate for quite a while now, but action appears to be stalled.
