Skip to comments.This prominent conservative says immigration reform isn't necessarily dead

Tuesday might have been a bad night for immigration reform -- but not necessarily.
That's the message from Grover Norquist, the president of Americans for Tax Reform. He favors the kind of immigration reform -- including a large guest worker program and more legal immigration -- that many Tea Party activists vehemently oppose.
But its not guaranteed, and it depends on the media narrative that emerges, he added.
Give it ten days, Norquist said.
If a consensus emerges that Cantors stance on immigration lost him his seat, then thats a big problem for reform proponents.
If the narrative hardens that thats what it was about, then it could spook people and put off a vote that might otherwise happen in next month, Norquist said. If people are convinced, No, that wasnt what it is, then it wont have any effect at all.

Boehner needs to either step up and fight this tyranny in earnest, or step down.
Norquist also supports terrorist organizations,
Sharia, and probably al Qaeda.
The GOP would be wise to ignore him.
So, I didn’t see any conservative mentioned in that article ...
Who the hell is Grover Norquist?
Americans are fair. They want the country secure against the invaders before we let the immigrants in, in an orderly legal process (not an invasion, Mr Obama).
We desperately need immigration reform.
Immigration reform is not necessarily amnesty, it’s coming up with a way to deal with the 35+million illegal aliens we have currently residing in the US.
It’s a big problem when a country with a population of 320 million people has an illegal alien population of more than 35 million.
More than 1 in 10 of the people currently residing within the borders of the United States is has entered the country illegally and is an illegal alien living here illegally
The thought that crossed my mind was that a vindictive Cantor could now push harder to get amnesty passed
Of course not. There are still countless Republicans who have a political death wish.
Grover Al Norquist is as much of a threat as any of the democrat’s friends.
Which of his many stances is this referring to?
Those folks are guests, visiting from another Country.
They need to go back to their Home Country.
Remove the benefits that keep them here.
They will make the decision to go home
Grover is a long-festering pox on the conservative body politic.
norquist is no conservative.
Professional liar and con man
Anything the gubmint comes up with will be screwing the rest of us. BIGTIME!
We desperately need immigration ENFORCEMENT. Enforce the laws already on the books.
Two days ago every pundit and pol was saying this election was a referendum on Amnesty. They were saying that if Cantor’s “margin of victory” was small it would be the death knell for amnesty. Surprise, surprise.
And passing another law that is not enforced will do what?
Secure the border now and we can talk later.
