Trump becomes poster boy for efforts to mobilize 2016 Latino voters

U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump addresses the crowd during a campaign rally in Grand RapidsBy Luciana Lopez LAS VEGAS (Reuters) – After Gabriela Pineda exited the Los Angeles Convention Center this month clutching her naturalization papers, the newly minted citizen marched straight over to a table set up by Democratic Party organizers to register voters.     Among the registration forms was a pamphlet titled “GOP Clown Car 2016.” It featured pictures of each of the Republican presidential candidates. A word balloon above the image of Donald Trump, the frontrunner for the Republican nomination, quoted his controversial remarks about illegal immigrants from Mexico: “They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime,” it read. “They’re rapists.”     For Democrats and Republicans, convincing unregistered Latino voters – as many as 12 million, according to some advocacy groups – to vote in the November 2016 election is the first step to securing the support of a critical bloc of voters.
