LAS VEGAS (AP) — Hispanic voters are facing a choice in the 2012 presidential election.

They can continue supporting President Barack Obama despite being hurt by the economic downturn. Or they can turn to Republicans at a time when many of the GOP presidential candidates have taken a hard line on immigration.

Obama begins a three-day visit to Western states with a stop Monday in Las Vegas. He'll try to rally support for his jobs agenda in a state with the nation's highest unemployment rate.

On immigration, some GOP candidates have discussed a fence along the U.S. border with Mexico and criticized each other for programs that help illegal immigrants.

Obama won about two-thirds of Hispanic voters in 2008, but Republican groups are courting Latinos in hopes of reducing his advantage.
