Senate Democrats Looking Solid on Immigration

Rate this Entry

The task of passing an immigration bill in the Senate with a big majority gets a lot easier if every Democrat and the independents aligned with the Democrats support the measure. And so far that's looking to be happening. All Democrats supported the first cloture votes and on the first "poison pill" amendment offered this past week by Senator Grassley, the only Democrat to break ranks as Joe Manchin of West Virginia. There were questions regarding the votes of some of the Southern Democrats including Mark Pryor of Arkansas, Mary Landrieu of Louisiana and Kay Hagan of North Carolina. But so far, they've been with the rest of the party. Mark Pryor has told The Hill he's leaning to voting in favor of the bill. One of my sources tells me that Senator Landrieu is also leaning to voting for the bill. Kay Hagan is more of an open question at this point.

    Nearing the 150th anniversary of the blue wall holding against Pickett's charge at Gettysburg, the question we need to ask is whether the blue wall will hold against the anti-immgration folks including ICE?
