Could Immigration Battle Help Democrats Take the House?

Bill Scher: "Everyone assumes that Republicans will easily hold the House in November. The dominant storyline among the chattering classes centers instead on the possibility that Republicans could seize control of the Senate from Democrats. But the rapidly escalating immigration face-off between President Barack Obama and House Republicans raises the possibility that Democrats could win back the House -- even if Republicans do take the Senate."

"How is that possible? It's simple: There are more competitive House races than Senate races in areas with significant Latino populations."
