Latino Mormans - Romney

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Mitt Romney's presidential campaign is
not being warmly received by at least one group of Mormons. That's
the fast-growing group of Latino Mormons.
     Many of them are expressing concerns about Romney's tough
stances against illegal immigration.
     As Romney continues to seek the Republican presidential
nomination while rarely discussing his faith, a growing number of
vocal Hispanic Mormons say they intend to use Mormon teachings as a
reason to convince others not to vote for him.
     They have held meetings on immigration, protested outside Romney
events and have even traveled across state lines to help defeat
other Mormon politicians with similar immigration stances.
     Latino Mormons point to immigration stories in the Book of
Mormon and the church's stated opposition to policies targeting
immigrants.
