I would argue that they should, and that immigration reform would potentially provide the GOP with inroads into wooing more Latino voters. However, what that reform should look like to best serve the interests of the American people, is definitely up for debate within both the GOP and the Democratic party.
For some reason, the poll function is buggy today, so I'll just post this as a thread and let people chime in (then I will go and report yet another bug to proboards).
Here's an interesting read on working-class black voters and their views on immigration reform:
It is a melancholy reflection that liberty should be equally exposed to danger whether the Government have too much or too little power, and that the line which divides these extremes should be so inaccurately defined by experience.
-- James Madison to Thomas Jefferson, October 17, 1788.
I don't think that immigration reform is going to buy the GOP too much Hispanic love. What few gains that they might might in the Hispanic community will be offset by the base being so disgusted that they just don't bother to vote. While I feel sorry for those that have been brought into this as children and think that there may be ways to remedy the situation for them, my basic sense of what's right and fair makes me know that a path to citizenship simply isn't fair to anyone that has followed the law. If those that have ignored the nation's laws and are rewarded for it, then why should legal citizens feel obligated to obey laws?
