House GOP Cool on Citizenship Path

Tea Party House Republicans double down on extremism in immigration reform and continue to push Latino voters to House Democrats.


SHOT: Dems seek to repeat Latino success in 2014. “To win the House in 2014, Democrats need to figure out how to get Hispanic voters to the polls — if not in the numbers that helped propel President Barack Obama to victory in November, then not too far off.” [Politico, 2/5/13]


CHASER: House GOP Cool on Citizenship Path. “House Republicans took a skeptical view Tuesday of opening a path to citizenship to people now in the country illegally, pointing to a fundamental disagreement with a bipartisan effort in the Senate to change immigration laws.” [WSJ, 2/6/13]
