But longtime schoolteacher Rep. Mark Takano, D-Calif., is already looking forward to the next battle, breaking out his trusty red pen to mark up and grade a “Dear Colleague” letter from House Republicans warning Speaker John A. Boehner to tread carefully on any immigration overhaul.

A Takano aide told HOH the office found the developing missive on a congressional message board and immediately set about analyzing the arguments involved, as well as style points.

Per Team Takano, Republicans have yet to weigh on the California Democrat’s biting critique.

    Dear Mark, I must say that your support of illegal immigrants is disgusting. I know that you don’t care but this is America and America should come first. Support for Illegal immigrants is a slap in the face for everyone who came here legally. I hope your supporters realize they have made a mistake and replace you in the next election. H.G. Chaffin
