By lashing out at undocumented immigrants, Donald Trump may actually be helping their cause.
U.S. Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Chicago) says Trump’s comments, such as saying Mexico is sending “rapists” and “drug dealers” across the border, are making him “a voter registration machine” for Democrats.
“He’s taking the ability of the Republican Party to ever be a national party, further and further away, and ensuring a very early night next November 2016. I think it’s going to be a very early night as the states report,” Gutierrez said.

Gutierrez says despite Trump leading some Republican presidential polls after making those comments, he feels support for comprehensive immigration reform is growing, noting support for a pathway to citizenship among candidates for both parties in the 2016 race.
