  •  Republicans are in kind of a damned if you do (5+ / 0-)

    damned if you don't situation... Bending a little bit on immigration reform won't win them much, if even any latino support. On the other hand, if nothing happens the blame will clearly be on them and their already dismal numbers will only get worse.  Plus there's the whole fact of the Crazy Right, who will be (and already are) outraged at the slightest hint of support for even minor reforms.  Politically speaking, it's a pretty shitty situation to be in.
