I wish someone would post the names of those Republicans in this "band" of vipers so we could concentrate our freeping efforts on them.

Too bad the writer was too lazy to do so.

Yep. I noticed that, too. No names to shame. The *report* only mentions "about two dozen GOP lawmakers who support an eventual path to citizenship for millions of people who are living in the U.S. illegally."

Here's more....

Most Republicans oppose this approach on citizenship, and there is little political incentive for them to change their minds. Only 24 of 233 Republicans represent districts where more than one-quarter of their constituents are Hispanic.

Supporters of a path to citizenship point to demographic changes and business backing that have helped sway Webster, who for years opposed immigrant-rights legislation, as potential motives for wavering lawmakers to sign on.

-----------------------------------

Boils down to the fact that some of these *conservatives*, many who rode in on the Tea Party wave, have had their districts redrawn, and are now kowtowing to the more hispanic numbers in their newly drawn districts.

COWARDS!
