Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy
Another GOP House Member Switches Course on Immigration
This time it's Colorado Tea Party Congressman Mike Coffman. From the Denver Post:
At a church in Aurora on Sunday
afternoon, U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman told a standing-room-only crowd of
roughly 800 that he was in favor of legal status for illegal immigrants
and a path to citizenship for their children.
Republican who has proposed anti-immigration legislation in the past,
said his change in stance was personal because of interaction with
various families. Coffman previously has proposed legislation that would
force Colorado's ballots to be English-only and supported a bill to
strip natural-born citizenship from children of illegal immigrants.
