“If Republicans in the House of Representatives vote against the immigration reform legislation that was recently approved by the Senate — or if they prevent it from coming to a vote at all — they will lose the presidential election in 2016. It will not even matter who their candidate is.

Sometimes it seems as though House Republicans are following a game plan devised by their worst enemy, for in attacking Hispanics — the fastest-growing demographic group in the country — they’re only hurting themselves. Rather than take advantage of the huge progress the Senate made by passing a bipartisan bill that would offer a path to citizenship to most of the 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the U.S., many House Republicans would evidently prefer to devote their energy to stalling and coming up with excuses for not supporting it.”  Jorge Ramos
