That is a fair question.  The top concern the Republicans have was Border Security.  What did the Democrats do in the Senate?  They wrote an Immigration Reform Bill that was weak on Border Security.   Moreover, during this six month negotiating time period, the Administration could have continued building the Southern Border Fence that was signed into Law by George Bush in 2006, and increase security measures on the Southern Border.

Simply stated, the White House and Democrats showed no good faith and basically wanted the Republicans to trust the present Administration to implement the vague Border Security Language.  In addition, throughout the process, the White House and Democrats continually accused the Republicans of not caring about Latinos.

Not surprisingly, the Republicans did not agree to immigration reform.  The Senate Bill did not properly address the top concern for Republicans  (Border Security), and the Democrats other strategy was to accuse the Republicans who do not vote for the Immigration Reform Bill are anti-Latino.   The Democrat and White House strategy seems more like a “get out the Latino Vote” then to actually get immigration reform passed.
