My friend, Paul Hsieh from FIRM blog, forwarded me the following:
Ruben Navarette discusses both opportunities and dangers for Republicans [in this CNN article]. This phrase caught my eye:
"If you're a Republican, you have to have a lot of nerve to try to make political hay out of the president's failure to fix the immigration system, given that the GOP has played a major role in keeping it broken over the years by offering bumper sticker solutions to complex problems, pandering to racists and nativists, and failing to deal honestly with the fact that illegal immigrants do jobs that Americans won't do."
Paul writes about individual rights as they relate to health care, so if you like Mother of Exiles, you ought to check out his blog.
Thanks for forwarding this article, Paul!
