GRAHAM LIKELY TO REPLACE MCCAIN AS GOP CHAMPION OF IMMIGRATION REFORM

Rate this Entry
South Carolina Republican Senator Lindsey Graham has said many times in the past that the GOP needs to move back to the middle on immigration reform. He's putting his money where his mouth is and is leading the GOP's pro-immigration wing as they work behind the scenes shaping the bill likely to be introduced in the next few weeks. The support of at least half a dozen Republican Senators will be critical since there will no doubt be Democrats who don't vote with their party.

    There are multiple reports from the summit over the weekend in Mexico of the 3 NAFTA leaders, the Mexican ambassador gave statement to the Mexican media saying that the Obama administration stated that CIR is highly unlikely to happen this year. Health care is their priority and they will see after that, 2010 is an election year I seriously doubt that they will undertake CIR then as the dems have a lot of ground to defend.

    I personally was very impressed with Senator Graham during the Sotomayor confirmation hearings. I thought he was fair, yet critical of Justice Sotomayor, and he ultimately broke ranks and voted for her confirmation.

    We can only hope that this is the first step towards meaningful comprehensive immigration reform.

    I agree, if they are not going to vote on it this year then it will not happen next year for the reasons already mentioned.

    Isn't it finally time to do some piece-meal legislations such as the DREAM Act, nurse visa bill and visa recapture bills?
