Mike Luo has a piece up in today's New York Times on immigration and the GOP.
It's well worth the read.
We've never understood what's so difficult for the Republicans on this issue (besides the xenophobia).
It should be an easy call - Secure the boarders (or at least make them "more" secure) while at the same time creating a path to citizenship for the 20 million illegal immigrants already here.
Comprehensive immigration reform is a national security, economic and electoral map no brainer.
Or, to put it another way - Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada, Colorado and Florida.
But why would the GOP want any of that action in 2008 (and beyond)?
