When your race-baiting is too far over the top for even nativist serial race-baiter Lou Dobbs, that's pretty bad. Republicans like Lindsey Graham and Jon Kyl are hoping to make a campaign issue out of birthright citizenship for children of illegal aliens for the mid-term elections.

This might play well for now with their nativist base but I don't see how this ends up being a good strategy for them in the long run given the changing demographics in the United States.
