Bush Shifting Immigration Stance?
Well, it probably had to happen. The NYT reports today that President Bush is backing down from his calls for comprehensive immigration reform and beginning to move toward supporting a multi-stage process that would delay implementation of any guest worker and path-to-citizenship program for several years. Joe Gandelman has much more.
I've said it before, I'll probably say it again - submit the Senate bill to a vote in the House, and it would probably pass handily with the support of Democrats and centrist Republicans. If comprehensive reform fails, it will be the fault of the ridiculous and polarizing "majority of the majority" rule enacted by the Republican leadership.
