OP-ED: Why Immigration Reform (Probably) Never Had a Chance

The GOP leadership has not had control over its rank and file since the advent of the Tea Party movement, or, really, since the election of Barack Obama, or even since the nomination of John McCain.

Immigration reform like so many other things DOA in the government decision making process is that way because all of our elected officials put together wouldn't make a single complete horse's a**.

Honestly, it still does. a simple discharge petition to move the Senate bill to a vote in the House needs only 17 Republicans and all the Democrats

The republican party has never had factions like the democrats, but had they focused on real immigration reform something would have been done.

Sorry, this article doesn't even explain the enormous amount of total pork passed in the Senate bill. The path to immigration as its stated, is just a convoluted maze. It's a cash cow for corporate contractors, and militarizes the border. I haven't read of any immigration rights groups that supports it. Hispanic members are leaving groups that do support it in its present form.
