POLITICO "analysis": no way to know how many illegal immigrants would get citizenship and vote, so let's assume 100%. politico.com/story/2013/04/...- Nate Silver (@fivethirtyeight) April 23, 2013Politico attempting to use statistics is like Taco Bell attempting to cook French food.- Nate Silver (@fivethirtyeight) April 23, 2013
Aarontology: Then they ran right the hell away from the GOP.
ReverendJasen: If that's the Democrat strategy, it's a long-term failure.Study it out...We bring in 30 million Latin peoples, who start voting Democrat.Out-vote GOP in so many districts they're virtually a 3rd party status.Conservative Latins don't really agree with Democrat politics, start their own party, La Conservativa.Back to square one.
DeaH: Cythraul: Or it could be to prevent employers from taking advantage of undocumented workers (illegal immigrants). You know, making sure they have a recourse in case their employers decide to do things like, not pay them, or pay them less than what was agreed upon.Yep, and the fact that this will also force employers to hire from a legal job market means that wages will stabilize. No more paying under market value because your workforce is too scared to do anything about it. Ironically, the average lower-middle class white person stands to benefit from this legislation, but they are against it because they don't want Mexicans to take their jobs. They don't seem to understand that Mexicans are taking their jobs because Mexicans will take a much lower wage because of their illegal status. Give them legal status, and employers won't be able to play that game.

the opposite of charity is justice: If they weren't so rabidly anti-immigrant, repubs might find the traditionally conservative latino groups could find a home in their party.
Rev.K: I love how, to conservatives, voter fraud isn't manipulating poll machines or casting multiple votes, it's having a large group of people vote for the other party.
