Democrats can’t get out of their own way

The Charlotte Observer (Sunday) - - Opinion -

Im­mi­gra­tion re­form has the po­ten­tial to be a big win­ner for Democrats. No­body likes to see kids and par­ents sep­a­rated. But by call­ing for an end to ICE, Democrats are play­ing into the hands of Repub­li­cans who paint them as an “open border” party. Why can’t there be se­cure bor­ders (no, not a stupid wall) and com­pas­sion for im­mi­grants? And why can’t the Democrats ar­tic­u­late that?

Democrats keep com­ing up with sure-fire for­mu­las for de­feat at ev­ery elec­tion. The Repub­li­cans have handed them gifts with their han­dling of im­mi­gra­tion and lack of fis­cal and en­vi­ron­men­tal re­spon­si­bil­ity. Take ad­van­tage of the op­por­tu­ni­ties and stop be­ing stupid!
