The House of Representatives immigration group seems to have an immigration bill. At least in concept. We have yet to see text.
Senator Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) has only been in the Senate a short time, but he knows what it takes to do the most important thing a Senator or Representative is elected to do: oversight and, if needed, move product.
If you don’t have the votes, and you still insist on trying to move forward with a measure, then your likely playing politics. I think that is what the Democrats have been doing with immigration for well over two decades.
If you have not seen it yet, and your a Republican, you should listen to Senator Cruz’s opening statement during an immigration reform hearing a few weeks ago. His remarks should be our litmus test for any immigration bill.
The Democrats do not want immigration reform to succeed because they want to use it as a political issue during the mid-term elections and beyond. If your a Republican operative and do not see that, well, you may want to find a new profession.
