Immigration Reform news today: Obama executive order may get a boost after Obamacare ruling. Meanwhile Republicans and their antipathy towards reforms remains unchanged
Immigration reform is going to be a big US presidential elections 2016 issue. There is no doubt about it. Not just Democrats are going to fight for it tooth and nail among themselves as biggest saviors of undocumented immigrants, Republicans with varied opinions about it are also going to rip into each other in the days to come.
While at least 13 GOP leaders have announced their intentions clear, a few have made it amply clear that they support immigration reform and a lengthy naturalization process that may include heavy penalty etc.
Then there are other GOP White House hopefuls who have been calling such undocumented immigrants name and want to send them back as soon as they come to the power. There is no denying the fact that such Republican leaders cannot be serious contenders for White House given the increasing value of those who support reforms.
Now there are some others who have their own views on the issue. Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) has understated the notion that a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants would serve as a hindrance to passing comprehensive immigration reform, arguing that bipartisan support for a pathway to citizenship has more relevance today than it was during previous failed efforts to address the issue.
While talking to MSNBC’s Jose Diaz-Balart Gutierrez, â€œI think you’ve probably noted that when there are Republican xenophobic measures to take away the DREAMers, their right to have a work permit, you see a dozen or so Republicans vote with Democrats to stop that.” Gutierrez pointed to a speech, which was delivered by Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) on Tuesday, in which he highlighted the need to address illegal immigrants – comments that signaled a shift from his previous position.
