Comprehensive Immigration Reform
Representative Joe Garcia (D-Miami) will join a 24-hour congressional fast relay to express solidarity with a group of immigration on the National Mall.
Senator Marco Rubio was for immigration reform before he was against it. Sunday, Senator Rubio submarined the bill he helped author on immigration reform by saying a comprehensive overhaul is not possible.
The prospects for comprehensive immigration reform passing both the Democratically-led Senate and the Republican-led House of Representatives continue to shrink with each passing day.
In political terms, it was the equivalent of seeing a poltergeist. It couldn’t be real, but there it was: ultra-conservative Republican Florida Senator Marco Rubio standing side-by-side with super liberal Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer in Washington Monday, advancing a bipartisan, comprehensive immigration reform plan.
