If they want to keep their seats they might want to opt for securing the border, enforce existing laws and vote No for amnesty. Otherwise, Fire them!

There's more than enough unemployed Americans to fill those jobs. Not only that but when the number of workers decreases as illegal aliens get deported, wages will increase. Illegal aliens only benefit their exploiters at the expense of the American worker and our economy.

These Republicans in favor of this amnesty are crazy. They should be selling the fact that even legal immigrants wages would go up if we could get rid of the illegal aliens.

The economy would absolutely collapse. There is no way around that. Forget about who will do their jobs. If 3% of the population suddenly disappears that will crush the housing market. Besides that despite the weird Topix myths all undocumented people pay property and school taxes. Without this tax revenue there will be huge holes in school budgets around the country. That will result in higher taxes for everybody else. Add in the drop in retail sales and it is all a disaster for us.

The article states:
“If Republicans get caricatured as the party of no sympathy and deportation, I think that gets filtered down to a larger population that isn’t just Hispanic,” he said.“They risk alienating non-Hispanic swing voters.”

Love the use of the "IF" - LOLL

Why are you liberals such alarmists? That statement was just like everything I heard coming out of liberals mouths when the sequester was going to take affect. "Crucial services will be cut. Elderly people will die. Children will go hungry", and on and on and on. It was laughable just like your last statement.

It is simple mathematics and it is not surprising that you find liberal concepts like math to be laughable.

As for the sequester it has cost my business tens of thousands of dollars so far. Yes it does cause problems.

If liberals are so good at math why can't they make a budget?

Is that a serious question? Really? You don't have any idea how government works, let alone the budget process. That does not say much for home schooling.
