..because Americans of any stripe don't like to see their Constitution trod upon. And the Hispanic community is not a single-issue voting bloc. IBD reports with a sneer:
Obama's dramatic illegal immigration non-amnesty amnesty did nothing politically for the Chicagoan in the polls. Zip. Nada. Rien.
