    Of course they do and it's obvious as to why.

    Republicans like to preach about the needs of proper policing the border. Democrats like to pretend that mass of imigrants is not an economical and social issue in order to get on the good graces of the latino demographics.

    Yet more undocumented immigrants were deported under Obama than any other president.

    I'm Mexican-American myself and I think Obama is doing ******y job anyway. He hasn't did damn thing about fixing immigration issues, but decides to give cartels small arms which has caused a lot of lives between both nations. He also lied to provide Mexico with equipment to fight these scumbags and even reduced the money for Merida Initiative because suspected human rights against majority of these scumbags cartel groups. So, to me Obama, did a piss poor job along with domestic and foreign policies.

    Yes, but Obama isn't the one demonizing the entire issue and implicitly trying to paint a whole demographic in a bad light, he knows which buttons to press and whose ego to massage.

    You're right, he hasn't done anything in terms of immigration reform.

    But the Republicans are no different.

    The longer the primarys, the more hardline they become, the harder it is for them to move to the center by November.

    So far the GOP has alienated moderates, women, and Latinos.

    In primaries they got to sell themselves to R's, some are very right wing. Come the General Election they got to reverse that process and sell themselves to the moderates. The primary campaigns are a lot longer than the general election campaign. Can they undo the harm? I guess in November we will see.
