ALIGNING WITH THE CONSERVATIVE BASE INSTEAD OF THE RIGHTWING BELTWAY:

GOP's Stars Align on Immigration Push (NEIL KING JR., 4/26/13, WSJ)

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio's push to overhaul immigration laws would once have spelled peril for a potential Republican presidential candidate. But that is much less so today.

One big reason: Many of his potential 2016 rivals--Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush--are marching in the same direction.

Despite differences in emphasis, all are supporting changes to immigration law that would offer an eventual pathway to citizenship for those now in the country illegally. That distinguishes them from many of the party's rank-and-file members in the House and Senate.

It's a Christian party, so amnesty is a 70-30 issue.
