We all thought that it will go against them. But a latest poll about Immigration reform 2013 says that House Republicans will benefit from the bill.

Immigration reforms are going to hurt Republicans in coming elections, this is a common refrain of many GOP leaders for opposing the comprehensive reforms. In House of Representative the immigration bill is rotting as House Republicans are suspicious that this will further consolidate Democrats’ position in the next Presidential elections.

They are precisely opposed to the very idea of immigration reform as they believe that like Latinos who overwhelmingly voted for Obama in the last Presidential elections, the other immigrants too will be voting for Democrats.

We also thought that this was precisely going to be the case. But we are shocked by a latest report that suggests that the immigration reform will also benefit Republican Party substantially. This seems simply amazing as all the analysts so far were of the opinion that due to their stated and open stand against immigration reform, it will be detrimental to their interests. Precisely for this reason Republicans have opposed the idea of comprehensive immigration reform that will give citizenship to 11 million undocumented immigrants.

The latest poll conducted by an advocacy group in key GOP-held House districts of California Republican Reps. Jeff Denham, Devin Nunes and David Valadao shows that the reform will improve the image of GOP in the eyes of Latino community. The poll finding suggest that as many as seventy percent voters in the three districts where the poll was conducted told the pollsters that they will love to see the immigration bill passed from the house in the way it was passed by Senate. The overwhelming majority of voters also favoured the citizenship to undocumented immigrants.

But the best finding from the angle of GOP leaders is the fact that if the bill is passed in the House it will improve the image of GOP in their eyes. America’s Voice top official said, “It just affirms that people want action…They want Congress to work together, not work against each other and immigration could potentially be a comeback issue for the two parties.” I am sure if the GOP realises that the immigrants will not be a vote bank of Democrats they will be more likely to take the comprehensive bill forward.
