The Daily Quote

“The failure of immigration reform to make headway in the Republican-dominated House of Representatives is a chronicle of a death foretold. House Republican hard-liners, including tea partiers, have spent years broadcasting their intransigence.… [T]he original sin in the immigration debate rests with Republicans in Congress, who have blocked any reasonable reform. House GOP members have refused to take up a sweeping overhaul of the immigration system passed more than a year ago by the Senate. In its place they have offered no alternative to address the problem of 11 million illegal immigrants, most of whom have been in this country for at least a decade.”
