President Warned By Conservatives On Immigration

Any immigration reform bill that looks, smells or sounds like anything even remotely similar to amnesty is a huge political loser. A vast majority of the population opposes illegal immigration, and recent pro-Mexico/anti-America rallies have done nothing more than solidify that opposition.

From the Washington Times with a hat tip to Right Nation.

House conservatives yesterday issued a dire warning to President Bush and Republican leadership that they will pay a devastating political price if they proceed with a guest-worker program or anything resembling amnesty for illegal aliens before securing the borders and enforcing existing immigration laws.

"They will remember in November," Rep. J.D. Hayworth, Arizona Republican, said of voters nationwide. "And many of those who have stood with our Republican majority in the last decade are not only angry, many of them plan to be absent from the polls" this year when the entire House and one-third of the Senate is up for re-election.
If the Republicans buckle on this issue Hayworth will be proven correct.
