    ....republican dilemma with Hispanics. Keep obstructing immigration reform and keep losing national elections or allow a pathway to citizenship and legalize more Hispanic voters.

      Giving in on amnesty will not much help GOPers with Latinos in the national arena. The 70-30% gap is frozen regardless.

      That's their worst fear, and another reason why the party won't give in on amnesty.

      •  GOP have an ace up their sleeve (0+ / 0-)

        Enforcement, then reform (but not all the way to citizenship).

        Notice that enforcement comes first? And who will be hanged with the "enforcement". Obama.  The GOP will turnaround and put it on him.   And I bet you the criteria for 'enforcement" will never reach.

        The absolute non-negotiable for Democrats should be:

        1. DREAM Act must be passed immediately.
        2. Reform must be concurrent with enforcement.
