Immigration Reform Appears DOA in Congress



Earlier this year, there was talk about a bipartisan immigration reform proposal in Congress.  This Fox News headline suggests that one should not hold her breadth:  "Cornyn's office denies bipartisan immigration bill in the works amid conservative uproar"

HuffPost reporter Igor Bobic tweeted that Senator John Cornyn (R-Texas) told California Senator Alex Padilla (D-California): "First guns, now it’s immigration." 

Senator Cornyn’s reported comments drew swift backlash from the right, many of whom were already angered by his support for the gun legislation.  Cornyn has previously backed bipartisan immigration efforts, including a border security bill. He has also backed a pathway to citizenship for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients.

Ohio Republican Senate candidate J.D. Vance said on Fox News’ "Ingraham Angle" that it would be "catastrophic" for the Republican Party to "advance amnesty."
