Congress will discuss the contentious idea of immigration reform later this year. Opponents will decry reform as a form of amnesty. Some in the GOP want to reform our immigration laws to grant a path to citizenship for the undocumented already here in the US. The final path to full citizenship will be tortuous and expensive. Basically the Republican position is we will grant you the right to vote if you will vote for us. If not, we will make it hard for you to gain citizenship and the right to vote and then we will work to make your vote not count through redistricting (gerrymandering).
