Mark Shields: GOP Writing 'Longest Suicide Note in the World' if They Fight Immigration Reform

"The longest suicide note in the world is being written by the Republicans if they don't support immigration reform. If they don't revamp their image on it, they are truly drinking the potion that’s going to make them disappear."

So said PBS's Mark Shields on Inside Washington Friday (video follows with transcript):

MARK SHIELDS: The longest suicide note in the world is being written by the Republicans if they don't support immigration reform. If they don't revamp their image on it, they are truly drinking the potion that’s going to make them disappear. So, is the president have a good chance? Absolutely he has a good chance of that. I think his chances on gun control improved. I think he can make the case for the minimum wage at a time when 121 percent of the economic growth from 2009-2011 went to the top one percent in the country.
