The RNC's take on immigration

From ImmigrationProf Blog: a senior advisor for the Republican National Committee recently wrote a memo telling Republicans what polls suggest about immigration, which do not reflect the current thinking in the House. For example:

More than two-thirds of voters – and equally large numbers of Republicans – support creating a temporary worker program.

Proposals to allow illegal immigrants who have been in the country for at least five years and meet other requirements (pay a fine, pay back taxes, learn English, and go to the back of the line) to apply for legal status garner wide support.

Republicans are so very split on this issue. I have a feeling House members will dismiss this, but it comes back to a fundamental question that I've addressed more than once--what do Americans really think about Latin American immigration? Anyone who claims a simple answer is flat wrong.
