Immigration Reform Comes to Heat

As the immigration debate comes to the full force of heat, Democrats and Republicans are working together to reach a comprise and pass a bill to move the nation forward. According to Burgess Everett, Manu Raju and Carrie Budooff Brown who all contributed to the article published on Politico, “The Senate’s Gang of Eight and a pair of Republicans are near a deal that would beef up the immigration bill’s border security language and break a major impasse between the two sides, senators and aides say. Both parties have offered amendments to the bill, and the reform would truly be an example of bipartisan leadership in the United States Senate. The article reported that Sens. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) and John Hoeven (R-N.D.), who are negotiating with the Gang of Eight, have briefed their fellow Republicans on the deal and said the reception was “good.”

The Politico wrote, “Details of the proposed compromise are set to be put on paper Thursday with a vote possible next week, Corker said, with both he and Hoeven saying they are hopeful the deal could yield additional GOP votes for the bill, although they declined to estimate how many.”

“It does feel very good right now. Both sides are talking, they’re spreading it out among members,” Corker said.” To read more, please visit the site at Sens.
