Furthermore, the GOP has a big reason for actually running over their own "tea-party" troglodytes in pushing a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants: quite a few Hispanics are actually rather socially conservative and, when the issue of illegal immigration is removed, may well vote with the GOP on quite a few issues. Sensible Republicans--yes, they do exist-- like Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio realize this--and will push others to act.
If you don't believe this, consider that in 2004, about 40% of Hispanics voted for GWB---and may have made the difference in places like NM. Since 2004, the more reasonable GOP people on immigration have paid a huge price---like Rick Perry and Newt Gingrich, for instance=-- and the GOP Hispanic vote has sunk like a stone.
That will change.
