By bargaining on a fundamental moral issue as if it were just another line item in a budget, Ds are helping nativists/ethnonationalists shift the Overton window at a head-spinning velocity. Even if they win this political battle they are making vast retreats in the cultural war.

By bargaining on a fundamental moral issue as if it were just another line item in a budget, Dems are helping nativists and ethno-nationalists shift the Overton window at a head-spinning velocity. Even if they win this political battle they're being decimated in the cultural war.
To protect this pop'n that once had more or less unquestioned bipartisan sympathy, at least rhetorically, the Dems have already made a historic concession: allowing restrictions to legal immigration to be put on the table, thereby branding legal immigrants, too, as a "problem."
