Danger lurks for GOP in 2016

(Continued)

So, what has happened? 

In June, the Democratic Party-controlled Senate passed an immigration bill with the support of 14 Republicans. All the Democrats voted for the bill. Since its passage, Democrats have urged Boehner to allow a vote in the House, where chances are good that it would pass. 

But last week, Boehner — again refusing to stand up to the tea party zanies in his party who want to deport 11 million undocumented immigrants — said he won’t allow the bill to come to the floor.

Memory of the government shutdown and the health care rollout will fade in time. But Hispanic voters won’t forget who they feel is for them … and who’s against them … for a long, long time.
