    Anti-immigration tone alienating Hispanics - Yahoo! News

    If what happened in Georgia spreads to other GOP controlled states the GOP will alienate one of the biggest ethnic groups. If that happens you can stick a fork in them. They will go the way of the Whig party.

    You obviously don't understand the difference between legal immigration and illegal immigration. There's a difference, you should Google it there Loosy Goosy.

    The greatest threat to the GOP is dishonest, inaccurate and downright lies by the liberal media.

    One tries to remain objective with regard to the GOP’s position on this, attributing it to static conservative authoritarianism rather than racism, as their opposition to Obama is partisan, not racist.

    Republicans have also done a poor job understanding the complexity of the issue, it’s not just ‘law and order,’

    Bullshit. Coming into the country outside of legal channels is against the law. End of story.... if you want to read all kinds of goofy bullshit into it, then fine have at it, but it still doesn't change the FACT that coming here illegally is, illegal.

    Precisely. But you note, they call conservatives 'anti-immigration' instead of accurately representing the view of conservatives as 'anti-ILLEGAL immigration'.

    Such as the article the OP presents. It refers to the GOP stance as 'anti-immigration'. That is not true. It is 'inaccurate, dishonest, a downright lie'.

    Exactly, if not for legal immigration, I'd not be here so therefore, I'm a pretty big fan.
