making English the sole official language of the country

I agree, THAT is definitely a wedge issue. Honestly, it's barely 'even' an issue. More like a meaningless and incendiary public gesture. Pandering at its most pathetic and pointless.

The fact is, there will ALWAYS be folks dead set against immigration in all forms. Xenophobia is real and deep rooted on some. However, the vast majority of Americans DO understand why LEGITIMATE immigration is part of our national character and why it makes us more competitive.

We've just screwed the pooch by waiting so long to do anything about it. I think one of the main reasons that BOTH SIDES have been paralyzed on the issue so long, is because of the sheer amount of wage-arbitrage opportunities the illegals have presented. Deporting them, offering amnesty or citizenship (along with the associated protections, labor laws and min. wage) or enforcing/arresting those who hire them are all EXTREMELY TOXIC to their corporate fundraising prospects.
