The framework agreement is the result of political leaders paying attention to broad national sentiment. Repeated opinion polls and 2012 election exit polls have shown that a majority of Americans believe undocumented immigrants should have a path to citizenship. Those expressing outrage over the framework agreement, imperfect but reasonable, do not reflect national sentiment as a whole. Not surprisingly, even as bipartisanship has been difficult to come by in recent years, the framework agreement was bipartisan in nature. Political and demographic realism drove that outcome.
