Hispanics in Texas, especially those who are not illegals or freshly arrived from another state, vote  Republican in far greater % than Hispanics elsewhere.  Hispanics who ID as Texans first are far more likely to vote Republican than not.  Even blacks in Texas vote Republican at a higher rate, although sadly most are still completely brainwashed.

Ted Cruz did very well among Hispanics compared to most Republicans.  Even Romney did better with Texas Hispanics than he did with them in the rest of the country.  Most Hispanics I know are die hard Republicans.  Of course, their families have been in Texas for generations and do not think of themselves as Mexicans.

Texas Republicans are not stupid and are not ignoring them.

Then again, I heard this same story in 2004, 2006, 2008, 2010, and 2012.  Democrats were going to win state wide races in Texas thanks to Hispanics.  Every single year they came up short.
