Immigration ‘Reform’: A Crying Sham
Its 844 pages and 300 amendments presented last week as the fine bipartisan handiwork of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” on immigration reform, the measure soon comes up for full debate. But Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) is worried that they can muster 60 votes to survive a filibuster. And Speaker John Boehner (R-Iowa) isn’t sounding hopeful about the House’s version of the bill. Yet another of President Obama’s constituency-pleasing priority items is caught up in the murky world of politics. What is clear, though, is that big money is driving immigration reform, and Latinos are being used by all stakeholders to achieve hidden, race-based agendas. It’s a crying sham!
