Republicans Must Show Support for Hispanic Dreams

Barone: "They need to show how their policies can help them achieve their dreams." Why is it up to the American polity to help illegal-alien Hispanics "achieve their dreams"? (Or Hispanic citizens and legal immigrants, if it requires us winking at our laws on behalf of their illegally-present friends and relatives?) People like Barone have forgotten that this country exists to benefit its own citizens, not to be a flophouse for the poverty legions of the world.
Rarely does a political party issue a document so scathingly critical of itself and its most recent presidential nominee as the report of the five-member Growth and Opportunity Project of the Republican National Committee.

It refers to Mitt Romney on occasion as "our presidential nominee" and notes disapprovingly of his reference, in the debate about immigration, to "self-deportation."

And while the report states modestly, "We are not a policy committee," it does call for a policy -- "comprehensive immigration reform" -- that many, perhaps most, Republican members of Congress oppose.

I think there's some risk here for the Republican National Committee....
