Title of a slice of political spam, the phrase is new to me, but a quick
Googling - about 1,450 results - takes it back to at least 2007:

Clinton's _Latino Firewall_ - CBS News
Dec 19, 2007 - Clinton's _Latino Firewall_. Polling station sign in English
and Spanish, Austin, TX. AP. Comment; Share; Tweet; Stumble; Email.

"Black firewall" in the same sense also occurs, but not until this year, as
is true of "black and brown firewall."

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
