Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy
Paul Ryan Interested in Immigration Reform
This is a bit surprising given everything said during the campaign. From Politico:
Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) said Wednesday that Paul Ryan had
reached across the aisle to work with him on immigration reform and
added that the Wisconsin Republican told him, "I want to do it because
it's the right thing."
"I saw my good friend just coming off
running for vice president of the United States, Congressman Ryan, we're
going to see each other next week. We're talking. He says to me, 'Luis,
I want to do it because it's the right thing. I don't want to deal with
it from a political point of view.' I think that's very, very
encouraging," Gutierrez said on MSNBC.
Not to be cynical, but perhaps Ryan wants a high profile role in immigration reform because of this guy.
