[quote  Immigration reform could help Republicans make inroads in the sizable bloc of Hispanic voters which Mitt Romney overwhelmingly lost to President Barack Obama, the Times reported. [/quote]

Well, if the Times says it, you know it is in the best interest of Republicans.

Boehner's position is rational. Preserving the status quo is irrational.

Allowing the dems to push "comprehensive" reform, is equally obvious, particularly in view of the mess we now can witness, with "comprehensive health care reform."

The Tea Party will likely reinforce their minority status, by pushing unrealistic options, like deporting 10 million + people, punishing kids for the sins of their parents, and by the end some foul mouthed truly racist quotes will emerge.

I predict in the end some TP members will cross over to support step by step reform, because it is the best idea, from among imperfect but rational options.

The status quo is open borders and rare deportations. Boehner's plan really depends on what these incremental steps really are and the Democratic Party like the word "comprehensive" a lot - I think they think it sounds good but it's a tip-off that the bill will be a monster.

Boehner's position is rational.

You bet. Rational in the same sense "If you like your current health coverage you can keep it. Period."
