    FILE - In this June 20, 2013, file photo House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio responds to media questions at a Capitol Hill news conference in Washington, where he addressd immigration reform legislation, jobs, and President Barack Obama's plan to set limits on the carbon emissions of existing power plants. House Republicans are rebelling against the key recommendation of a party-sanctioned post-mortem: embrace “comprehensive immigration reform” or suffer crippling losses among Hispanic voters in 2016 and beyond. This week they invited renewed Democratic taunts of a “war against women” by passing the most restrictive abortion measure in years, and threaten to refuse to raise the federal debt limit later this year if Obama won’t accept spending cuts he staunchly opposes.

    FILE – In this May 10, 2011, file photo President Barack Obama speaks about immigration reform in El Paso, Texas. In his second term, Obama is making immigration a priority, and Republicans also appear ready to deal. Obama's 2012 re-election win of 71 percent of Hispanic voters sent a loud message to Republicans that they can't ignore this pivotal voting bloc. 2013 may be the year Congress decides what to do about the millions of immigrants living illegally in the U.S. (AP Photo/LM Otero, File)

    FILE - In this June 5, 2010, file photo Judy Schulz, center, cheers as her husband Richard Schulz, left, both of Glendale, Ariz., joined hundreds supporting Arizona's new law on illegal immigration as they listen to speakers near the capitol in Phoenix. On the political map of the southwest, Arizona stands out. Most of its neighbors _ California, Colorado, New Mexico and Nevada _ are independent-minded states that once leaned Republican but are trending Democratic, partly because of increasing numbers of Hispanic voters alienated from the GOP by its tough stance on illegal immigration.

    FILE – In this Jan. 28, 2013, file photo Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., answers a question during a Capitol Hill news conference as he and leading senators announce a bipartisan agreement on the principles of sweeping legislation to rewrite the nation's immigration laws in Washington. The Republican Party's problems with minority voters have preoccupied strategists since November, and it's possible those difficulties will persist or worsen. But if GOP lawmakers allow a far-reaching immigration changes to become law, the nettlesome issue might fade from political headlines and perhaps ease anti-GOP feelings among Hispanics. And if Republicans in 2016 nominate a Latino for president, say Rubio, it's possible that millions of Hispanic voters would back him. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite, File)

    Lizette (L), Ricardo (C) and Alicia, who immigrated from Mexico sit on their sofa at their home in Phoenix, Arizona November 9, 2012. Ricardo, a 46-year-old illegal immigrant from Mexico, is among millions of Latino immigrants who, regardless of their immigration status, feel fresh optimism this week over newfound Republican willingness to consider immigration reform to avoid further alienating Hispanic voters who proved key to re-electing President Barack Obama. The Obama administration, in a move that boosted support among Latino voters, said in June it would relax deportation rules so that many young illegal immigrants brought to the United States as children can stay and work.

Among many troubling signs for Republicans Tuesday night was the continued drift of Hispanics _ the nation’s fastest-growing ethnic group _ into the blue column. Republican Mitt Romney backed hardline immigration measures during the primary and won only 27 percent of the Hispanic vote Tuesday, less than any presidential candidate in 16 years.

    This image provided by Bupendra Ram shows Ram demonstrating outside the federal building in the Fall of 2011 in Los Angeles. Hundreds of thousands of young illegal immigrants scrambled to get papers in order, as the U.S. started accepting applications to allow them to avoid deportation and get a work permit, but not a path to citizenship. President Barack Obama announced the program in June after pressure from Hispanic voters and others who said he hasn't fulfilled a campaign promise to overhaul tangled U.S. immigration laws.
