Republicans Rethink Immigration Reform After Romney Loses Latino Vote (PHOTOS)

LOOK: Republicans Rethinking Immigration Reform

One week after Latino voters overwhelmingly rejected GOP hopeful Mitt Romney at the polls last week, prominent conservatives are publicly rethinking their views on immigration reform.

House Speaker John Boehner now thinks an immigration overhaul can happen. Senators Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Lindsay Graham (R-S.C.) say they're working on a bipartisan bill. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fl.) is quietly meeting with advisors to discuss his next step. Fox News host Sean Hannity has dropped his scathing criticism of amnesty, and is now telling his fans he supports reform.

But the GOP remains a long way from consensus. The party remains divided over whether it will support a path to citizenship for the undocumented -- an issue that could cause problems and legislative delays in the Republican-controlled House.

Can the Republican Party turn around its opposition to immigration reform and recover from the self-inflicted damage of this year's election? Take a look at who's changing their tune on immigration and who refuses to budge in the slideshow below.
