    ... in helping pass a bill with a path to citizenship as long as they do it.

    But I'm enjoying watching them sweat bullets over how to sell it to their racist base.  What will ultimately happen is that the GOP whip will line up enough GOP votes in  districts not likely to experience backlash to ensure passage.  Then "no" vote congressmen can brag before white audiences in their district that they opposed it.

    In the meantime a stream of GOP congressmen will state on the floor that they love Latinos, but want to make sure border security is a priority.

    This is the way it'll unfold unless the GOP has gone even crazier than I imagine.
