Immigration battle threatens to dwarf debt-limit fight as many Republicans fear power of 17 MILLION newly legalized loyal Democrats

    One GOP congressman says the president is trying 'to destroy the Republican party' with his immigration policy
    If a senate immigration bill favored by the White House became law, 17.3 million newly legalized Hispanic immigrants would become voters
    81 per cent of non-native Hispanics voted for President Obama last year
    No modern Republican presidential candidate has attracted more than 43 per cent of their votes
    Obama wants 'comprehensive' immigration reform, including a 'pathway to citizenship for the 11 million immigrants living illegally in the U.S.
    Some Republican lawmakers are trying the same piecemeal approach with immigration that failed them in the government shutdown fight
    One GOP aide says his colleagues fear 'changing voting patterns for maybe 100 years and creating natural advantages' for Democrats

Republicans' new worst fear isn't defaulting on America's debts. If an immigration policy favored by the White House and Senate Democrats should become law, 17.3 million newly legalized immigrant voters would emerge by 2036, eager to reward the party that gave them a path to citizenship.

The White House has shifted gears and put its policy team in immigration overdrive, zooming past the debt crisis that threatened to sink the republic and on to the task of normalizing the estimated 11 million U.S. residents who have no legal basis for being there.

The Democrat-dominated U.S. Senate passed a bill in June that would provide a citizenship path for those who have been in the U.S. since the end of 2011. But as with the early days of the debt crisis and the partial government shutdown, Republican leaders in the House of Representatives aren't eager to consider it.

The White House has avoided saying that it take advantage of a weak House and spend its political capital to push an immigration policy, but Republicans have reason to suspect the other shoe is about to drop.

No freaking ****.  This has always been about creating a permanent Democrat majority.

Obama was talking about this even before the final vote yesterday.  He is determined to destroy white America and make our country a one party rule.  The sad thing being that over half of Americans thinks it's a great idea!

How many illegals are in Texas today?

Once Texas tips to Tejas, it's all over for the Republicans, insofar as winning the presidency is concerned.

Yet Texas NEVER has any real say in who the Republican nominee for president will be! Go figure!
