  •  On this, Rep. Gutierrez is right, no matter what. (0+ / 0-)

    District by district, Republicans will - or won't - be able to support meaningful immigration reform. We must press on. An election is coming!

    Of course the Nays on immigration will flog Wannabe Brat's victory as The Signal for how toxic any GOP support will be for immigration reform. That is hogwash, just as much as was Brat's ill-informed single-issue campaigning.

    Even if Republicans turn tail on this, the cause is strong and just, and some of them will get hurt by a No vote on the issue come November. The main problem reformers will have in the short run, I think, is fending off the water-it-down advocates.

    2014 is HERE. Build up the Senate. Win back the House : 17 seats. Plus!
