Democratic, Republican leaders say comprehensive immigration reform could pass this year

Posted on April 28th, 2014 No Comments

Earlier this month, Democratic San Antonio, Texas Mayor Julian Castro and former Republican Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour both stated their belief that Congress could pass comprehensive immigration reform this year.

According to Castro, passing immigration reform can be a matter of timing, and that when the Republican primaries are over, the passage of immigration legislation might be a little easier.

Castro also mentioned that legislators might find a way to resolve political obstacles such as the issue of border security, saying that border security is a term that is “rarely defined” and has been used “politically in a way that ends the discussion.”

Barbour also mentioned border security and highlighted the importance of ensuring that the U.S.’s border is secure, but also stated that he believes immigration reform can be achieved in an “appropriate” way. He also noted that if immigration reform fails, Republicans will likely be blamed for the failure.
