The GOP's Border Spectacle

Wall Street Journal editorial: "Republicans should be heading toward a November election victory, perhaps even a big one, adding to their House majority and maybe picking up the six or more seats necessary to control the Senate. Yet never underestimate their ability to save the day for Democrats, not least by showcasing the GOP's immigration neuralgia... the GOP again gave the country the impression that its highest policy priority is to deport as many children as rapidly as possible back from wherever they came."

"House Republicans may have scrambled enough on Friday to save themselves from a total meltdown. But this latest immigration debacle won't help the party's image, which is still recovering from the government shutdown debacle of 2011. A party whose preoccupation is deporting children is going to alienate many conservatives, never mind minority voters."
