    that Democrats in the house focus on trying to get the Republicans in districts along the mexican border to support the law, thinking that it would be a slam-dunk easy sell for the Republicans.

    Except that have further review, the congressional districts along the border in California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas are 3:1 in favor of Democratic representatives. So, the Senate and House appropriating all of this money for border security is actually pork for Democratic districts. Who knew?

    Also, that is a terrible harbinger for the GOP. The border they want so desperately to secure, is already overrun by Democrats.
