<<On the potency of the teabaggers: ""This is driven ideology that isn't mainstream with other Republicans - the business leaders, the moderate Republicans," he said. "They have some things in common but they don't have everything. There's a split there.">>

This illustrates once again that subverting immigration laws is a bipartisan program by both Democrats and Republicans.

Democrats see illegal immigrants as the electoral cannon fodder of the present and future, and Republican business interests love the cheap wages. So they have combined through much of American history to keep the immigration door wide open, and screw the interests of working people in the United States.

It usually takes a good deal of grass roots political power to overcome those entreched political interests. This is the first indication that the Tea Party political power is receding.

Could be of course that they will punish some of those Republicans and be back in the saddle.
