If this Kids Act treats all citizens equally, her group would be wise to support it.
Republicans would be wise to pass a Kids Act early next year. Otherwise, their main contribution to the immigration debate will be passage of a measure to resume deporting DREAMers spared by Obama's pen. Is that the message they want to send to Latino voters?
I'd rather Americans hear the words of Kids Act supporter Eric Cantor. The House majority leader said in February, "One of the great founding principles of our country was that children would not be punished for the mistakes of their parents."
