days since the GOP hit the demographic cliff
Republicans had until the 4th of July Congressional recess to move on immigration reform, but they failed to act and now reform could be off the table for years.
For Republicans, this isn’t just about immigration reform, it’s about the survival of their party.
WHAT DOES INACTION ON IMMIGRATION REFORM MEAN FOR THE GOP?
President Obama will address the deportation crisis and provide work permits to the people covered by the Senate immigration bill.
The Senate bill will expire and it's unlikely legislation will move in next Congress. Immigration will be a hot topic in Republican presidential debates.
By 2016, 45 million Latino, Asian American, and immigrant voters could once again boycott the Republican Party and decide the outcome of the presidential election.
Democrats in the House, Senate, and White House will pass reform with a pathway to citizenship for 11 million aspiring Americans.
Latinos will continue to lock the GOP out of the White House and will turn states like Arizona, North Carolina and (maybe) even Texas blue.
