AZBD Note: Here the Republicans go trying to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory AGAIN. If you still think voting for the guys with the “R” next to their name is going to fix everything you are seriously delosional.
Democratic leaders are welcoming efforts by the House GOP leadership to amend a minor 2008 immigration bill, because it could revive the now-dormant, business-backed comprehensive immigration reform push.
The House’s proposed change to the 2008 bill is “an opening for us to have a conference on our comprehensive immigration reform,” said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.
GOP leaders announced Tuesday they’re scheduling a Thursday vote on changes to the existing 2008 immigration law. For more than a month, President Barack Obama has blamed the law for his decision to allow more than 100,000 Central American migrants into the United States.
The GOP’s base, and many voters, want to block the Central American inflow.
