Here’s what they are thinking...
“If we make a bunch of people who broke the law become citizens, then all hispanics will LIKE us”!!!
Good luck with that.
Generally, the South Of the Border crowd does not like, respect nor trust the Republicans. Frankly, if I were a S.O.B. person, I would be inclined not to respect a country's laws that does not care about enforcing immigration laws and protecting its citizens.
The Republican party is likely to get more respect by protecting the border, and our sovereignty from invaders.
