The politics of immigration

Let’s be honest. The support offered for the immigration bill by some Senate Republicans does not herald a new era of bipartisan comity and cooperation. Nor does it reflect some newfound commitment to treating immigrants with dignity and fairness. It’s raw politics.

Sophisticated Republicans recognize they cannot win either the White House or a number of Senate seats without being able to crack the Latino vote. [cont.]
