Anti-Immigration Orthodoxy

But for the far right, immigration orthodoxy now seems to apply not just to candidates but to staffers as well. And when conservative pundits ignore just how much powerful anti-immigration sentiment is in the GOP base, they only delay the shift on immigration the party so desperately needs. In 2012, being even slightly pro-immigration was enough to sink Rick Perry, and in an impossible-not-to-be-related development, Mitt Romney won only 27 percent of the Hispanic vote. The longer the GOP puts off a change on the issue, the longer it will limit its chances to capture the White House.
