|The organized opposition to the Gang of 8 immigration bill appears to consist largely of the Heritage Foundation & racist hate groups
a poll out just last week found that 83 percent of all Americans and 84 percent of Republicans favor a path to earned citizenship so long as immigrants pay fineThis time, however, something is different. It's conservatives who are lining up to trash the Heritage report. In just the few hours the report has been out, influential conservatives have lined up to discredit Heritage's way-too-bad-to-be-true claims:
The Cato Institute
Grover Norquist's Americans for Tax Reform
The American Enterprise Institute
The Kemp Foundation
Doug Holtz-Eakin, prominent conservative economist and president of the American Action Forum
Haley Barbour, former Republican Nation Committee chairman
Sen. Jeff Flake
Sen. John McCain
Sen. Marco Rubio
Rep. Paul Ryan
