What does the GOP hope to achieve politically? And why does anyone think the GOP is going to be necessary for future changes in immigration policy?

The answer to my first question is that GOP plans or concessions regarding immigration policy will gain nothing for the GOP. Regardless of how the math is done, even with best case scenarios, present immigration policies and policies regarding illegal immigration are a lose/lose game for the Republican Party. Unless reform dramatically alters present immigration policy, nothing will be gained. Everything on the table furthers immigration policy philosophy since the 70s.

The answer to my next question is that the past election determined what immigration policies and reforms are going to be. We will have amnesty and we will have de facto open borders. A fast track to citizenship is going to happen. Come one, come all, and take what you can is the new immigration policy. None of it is going to require the participation of Republicans. It will all be done through agency rules or through Congressional concessions that won’t do a thing to improve the GOP’s standing with new voters or minorities.

There’s a false premise underlying the question: immigration reform wasn’t the big issue with hispanics this year.

ObamaCare, and “free” health care was. For nearly 65% of hispanics, that was the primary issue they voted on.

Supporting immigration reform gets the GOP nothing. They won’t benefit from it (because hispanics aren’t going to vote based on it), and it will hurt them by driving away their base while simultaneously expanding the Dem base (from the influx of hispanic immigrants who will either become citizens or who will have children who are citizens.

This is why the Dems and the MSM are pushing this issue so much as one the GOP has to compromise on.

Man am I with you on that, even if he would be acquitted, the state run media would be forced to tell the sheeple the news of his treasonous act, PLUS he goes down in the history books as the first black President to ever be impeached. IT WOULD DRIVE THE STATE RUN MEDIA NUTS AND PRISSY MATHEWS WOULD FIND NO MORE TINGLE.

The way I look at it the GOP is toast anyway why not go for broke? It will never ever happen with this bunch of spinless leaders in the GOP House AND Senate. NEW PARTY TIME.......

Obama already came out and said...On the eve of a visit by Mexican President-elect Enrique Peña Nieto, the White House promised Monday that President Barack Obama “will be pressing for action” in Congress on comprehensive immigration reform and regards that goal as “achievable.”

“There is a real opportunity here to move forward and the president is committed to that,” press secretary Jay Carney told reporters at his daily briefing.

“He believes that comprehensive immigration reform is achievable ... because there has been in the past bipartisan support for immigration reform,” Carney said. “And he thinks it’s important not just for specific communities that would be affected by it, but for the American economy.”

The spokesman said the immigration issue “might come up” when Obama meets Tuesday with Mexico’s president-elect.

Good idea. Let’s rescue some Swedes from their Islamic invasion as well as the Brits, Germans and Danes.

Keep in mind that all this mumble jumble talk about “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” and “Immigration Reform” is nothing more than RAT speak for AMNESTY. The border will never be closed and millions and millions more will flood over once they hear that OUR LORD AND SAVIOR OBAMA is about to make them citizens for the simple task of showing up. GOP go along with this at your own peril - IMHO the party is breathing it’s last gasp.

Why doesn’t the gop-e simply offer to give away more free stuff to whites? Then we can engage in a real class war.
