Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy

Republicans in Senate Starting to Line Up Support for Immigration Reform

Rate this Entry

Several GOP Senators have now spoken out in favor of
immigration reform along the lines of proposals debated during the Bush
Administration. The Hill reports that John McCain of Arizona, Marco Rubio of
Florida and Orrin Hatch of Utah are all pushing for reform that includes a
pathway to citizenship. McCain was the original architect, along with the late
Ted Kennedy, of the immigration reform proposals debated in the mid-2000s.
Hatch is the original sponsor of the DREAM Act, also with Ted Kennedy. Rubio is
a freshman Senator from Florida who has gained attention for promoting his own
version of the DREAM Act (albeit a weaker version). Another Senator not
mentioned by The Hill
is Lindsey Graham of South Carolina who has sponsored
reform legislation in the past and has warned his party that the changing
demographics would doom them. Politico is reporting that Rand Paul of Kentucky
is now interested in legalization proposals. Another Senator who looks ready to
change positions on this is Nevada's Dean Heller who recently won a close
election in a state President Obama won easily as a result of changing
demographics. Politico is also reporting that Rand Paul of Kentucky is now
interested in legalization proposals. However, he would stop all new
immigration while the legalization program is underway, something that will be
a non-starter and which will no doubt antagonize the very communities the GOP
is supposedly trying to court.

    Wonder what new immigration Rand Paul wants to stop. I guess since the majority admitted are spouses of US citizens, he probably will follow up with a legislation banning US citizens from marrying foreigners. Skill visas account for 100,000+ a year and chain migration for another 150,000+ and diversity 55,000. If Paul's suggestions are to be enacted, it would mean suspension of husband-wife unification for at least ten years. There is a precedent for this...the country of Denmark which is being now followed by the UK.
