Today POLITICO Arena asks:
Given President Obama’s speech today in El Paso, Texas, is immigration a winning issue for Democrats?
Immigration will be a winning issue for Democrats only if Republicans allow it, which they’re quite capable of doing. Where’s the anti-immigrant part of the Republican base going to go — to the Democrats? Hardly. With so much else at stake, will they sit out the 2012 elections, over this one issue? Please.
