Immigration fight

"We expect to see almost all of the original McCain-Kennedy bill become law during the first six months of a McCain Presidency."
The last time a Republican President tried to get the McCain-Kennedy Bill through a Democratic congress, it was defeated. What makes Mickey Kaus think that President McCain will have any more luck than President Bush did?

If precedent holds, it will be defeated and only serve to weaken the Republican brand in the eyes of pro immigration moderates and new legal immigrants who would otherwise be willing to support the Republican party.
