Take a look at On Immigration: Why, Why, Why?? and then ask yourself what is pushing the GOP to pass immigration reform.
Almost all the opinion leaders on the right are against immigration reform. The public ranks it very low as a priority. I’m almost tempted to agree with Ann Coulter — GOP Crafts Plan to Wreck the Country, Lose Voters.
Yes, I realize that the media has been giving the GOP advice that if they don’t get on the immigration bandwagon they’re facing destruction by demographics. First, I think exactly the opposite is the case, and second, when the media gives the GOP advice, you can be pretty sure it’s not in the GOP’s best interest to follow it.
But whether you think immigration reform is wise or not, whether you think it will save the GOP or destroy it, it’s still interesting to ponder why they’re in a rush to do something about it … now. It seems pretty clear they have better issues to pursue.
