Frontera commented on the blog post Bipartisan Group of Senators Agree to Rough Outline for Immigration Reform
If only this bipartisan commission was less about making loud noises and more about reforming immigration policy! Some may interpret as a good omen the fact that four Republicans are among the proponents, but we have seen the same guys back down when confronted with opposition from their party’s right wing. And the right wing is in unmistakable opposition to any softening of the immigration policies, amnesty or not.
The proposed citizenship pathway is to be implemented once the nation agrees that borders have been “secured”; that does not sound so encouraging.
Lets see how far this develops. Maybe the upcoming Obama immigration proposal will just sweep this under the rug.
