    Immigration reform is a predicament wrapped in a dilemma. While it is common for issues to separate Republicans and Democrats, immigration is an issue that opens yawning divides within each group. "We are engaged in a struggle for the soul of the party," Mel Martinez, the general chairman of the Republican National Committee, told me. Martinez said Republicans must back more than border security if they are to survive politically.

Nicaragua’s new president, Daniel Ortega voiced his support of the pro-life law in his election campaign. Marc Litvine, the EU...
