Glimmer of Hope on Immigration Reform? Possible Path to Legalization -- Not Citizenship -- a Possible Compromise for House Republicans
Julia Preston of the New York Times reports on one conservative Republican who seems open to some kind to path to legalization in immigration reform. Representative Mick Mulvaney represents one of the most conservative in South Carolina. In a town-hall meeting on the troublesome issue of immigration, with an audience of Latinos, he discussed policy and answered questions about the prospects for immigration legislation in the House — entirely in Spanish. Mulvaney said he and other conservative House Republicans were open to some kind of legal status, although not a path to citizenship, for many immigrants living in the country illegally.
