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

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.

Republican, Democratic candidates in Texas mark different stances on immigration law

Republican candidates in Texas are of the opinion that stricter policies on immigration would make them popular with state voters as they plan for the March 4 primary elections, looking for support from the party’s base.

Contradictory to this position, the Democrats are banking on strengthening policies for immigrants to work for them, as they plan on capturing the Hispanic voter sector.

State Republicans are veering away from the national party’s more moderate stance on immigration laws to accommodate the wishes of Republican voters in Texas, who are hoping for the implementation of more stringent immigration policies.

Senate debates on immigration bill start

Debates on the Senate floor regarding the controversial national immigration reform bill finally began on June 7.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid lauded the benefits of the proposed legislation, stating it should fix many of the problems with the current immigration system. Reid said the bill is essential and makes sense, as illegal immigrants will be given a chance to make a conscious effort to conform with federal laws and it will make the U.S. a safer place.

On the other hand, Republican Senator Jeff Sessions, who is against the bill, stated that it will not be successful in terms of curbing illegal immigration, as the proposed legislation offers amnesty without really putting the law into effect.
