Republicans very stupid on immigration
According to the Wall Street Journal, Senate Republicans are “upset” about the White House immigration plan which is “threatening to complicate the delicate legislative process now under way.”
Republicans have been living in this fantasy that they could pass some immigration/amnesty bill and become heroes to Hispanics. Did they really think they could become more liberal than Democrats on this issue? It was so obvious that Democrats would just push for even easier immigration that Republicans couldn’t stomach, once again making Republicans look like the bad guys. It was always obvious that the end result would be more Hispanic citizens, and those citizens would know it was the Democrats who were really on their side and not the Republicans.
This also demonstrates how Democrats are always angling for more votes in the next election, and Republicans always fall into their traps.
