Bonilla: Battle over immigration is existential threat to GOP


Former GOP congressman, Henry Bonilla*, tells NPR that only "idiots" would remain unmoved on immigration after last week's results.

"I can't imagine that if you're a Republican and have any level of sanity left, that you did not feel this earthquake and want to do something about it before your whole political future craters," says former Republican Congressman Henry Bonilla of Texas.

"If it's not obvious now," Bonilla, now a Washington lobbyist, says, "they're idiots."

(*No relation to the great Pittsburgh Pirate, Bobby Bonilla. Also, no relation to Andy Van Slyke, though that's probably a bit more obvious).
