Backlash

From the Washington Post:

In the wake of this week's massive demonstrations, many House Republicans are worried that a tough anti-illegal-immigration bill they thought would please their political base has earned them little benefit while becoming a lightning rod for the fast-growing national movement for immigrant rights.

They're right to be worried!

They have nothing to worry about. No one has ever been punished in the polls for trying to find a way to enforce laws that involve the nation's sovereignty.

I don't think opponents of a more open immigration policy should worry because they are trying to protect the nation's sovereignty. Nobody will blame them for that. What they need to worry about is appearing overly punitive and lacking any compassion. I think most people want to control illegal immigration, but they may not want to have millions of people thrown in jail or separated from their families by mass deportations.
