Obama's foes on border crisis: Democrats
They sure didnt check with me, said Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa), chairman of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee. I dont know who they checked with, but I just think it was kind of a quick reaction without really thinking about the humanitarian aspects of this.

“In 2006, we saw Republicans lose both houses of Congress because they tried to pass amnesty. And in 2014, they are actually considering doing it again.”
Amnesty is done for this year, thanks to Cantor being taken down. Probably not much next year either...but, yea, slowly Republicans will come back to it - they simply CANNOT RESIST Karl Rove’s money forever.
