|These two (immigration reform) bills are going to create considerable explosions within the Republican Party. Normally the party is able to see past some of their internal fissures and work together towards some very odious laws. However, the divisions caused by the issue of undocumented aliens runs very deep with the far right wing of the party. Their paranoid fear of anyone who isnt white coupled with their abhorrence of federal subsidies that benefit anyone other than their campaign contributors will make reconciliation between the two sides very difficult. It may well be just the wedge needed to throw the republicans back into disarray. Hopefully, someone (anyone) from the democrats will pick up on the scent of dissention among the republicans and use it against them. It will be interesting to see how this all plays out.|
