Raising the Stakes

Tom Schaller, one of Nate's new grunts over at 538, gives an indication of what the downside might be if the Dems don't make a serious push for immigration reform before the midterms.

The Arizona nonsense has pretty much forced the administration's hand anyway, but just in case there was some thought to trying to manage the situation and back-burner reform, the numbers Schaller lays out should decisively scotch those plans.

The Dems need to get Latino voters energized. It's their only chance to minimize the potential damage in 2010, and have a chance of retaining control of the House.
