Of course - K-Street wants it so the GOP wants it... the people - that is another story.

Not so.  Think about what he actually said - he said there's a consensus that we need to reform - that is, alter, change, fix - our immigration laws.  And on that he's entirely correct; some people think the immigration laws should be reformed by legalizing illegal aliens and making it easier to enter legally, and other people think the laws should be reformed by making it easier to pick up illegals and deport them and making it harder for aliens to enter illegally in the future.  Together those two groups of people pretty much include almost all republicans.

Priebus is right. The statement

Quote
"When someone says things like, 'we need something big.' It doesn't mean they're talking about amnesty. It means border security, it means enforcement, it means legal immigration, it means E-Verify, it means a lot of things. It means guest worker programs on the border. These are all things that are accepted within the platform of the Republican party," Priebus said then.

is exactly what so many conservatives have been asking for demanding. It hasn't been possible to get any of this with the dim Senate and 0bama, but it's a great plank in a platform for this year.
