Former California Democratic Rep. Jane Harman said Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol of leading the Republican Party on a "suicide mission" by opposing the Senate's immigration bill.

Both appeared on "Fox News Sunday," where host Chris Wallace brought up the fact that Kristol's publication had issued a joint editorial with The National Review that said, "Passing any version of the Gang of Eight's bill would be worse public policy than passing nothing. House Republicans can do the country a service by putting a stake through its heart."

Harman, seated right next to Kristol, said the Republican Party would suffer politically if it didn't help pass immigration reform.

"I think my friend, Bill, is leading his party on a suicide mission," she said, noting that many Republicans are pushing for reform.

"Good luck winning any presidential election in any near century," she said, turning to face Kristol.

"Kristol shot back, "I think we'll do just fine in the next presidential election and in the Senate elections in 2014."

Obama had 60 senators and huge majority in the House during his first two years in office, but took no action on immigration, Kristol said.

"Did he move an immigration bill to deal with this pressing problem?" an animated Kristol said. "The tragedy of these people in the shadows? I missed that."
