Chris Dodd Says "Immigration Reform" on Front Burner for Democrats; Must Have "National Answer" - Video 4/25/10
Here is video from "Meet the Press" today where Democrat Sen. Chris Dodd said the new Arizona anti-Illegal Immigration Law shows that a "national answer" is needed on Immigration Reform. Dodd said the issue will now be on the front burner for Democrats.
GOP Sen. Richard Shelby agreed that a patchwork of laws in various states is not good, but said the first thing that should be done is that the Federal Government ought to "enforce our borders," and then deal with "the rest."
It certainly looks like Democrats are going to make a push on Immigration, if for no other reason, to pacify those on the Left pushing for it. They see the potential of millions of Hispanic votes for many years to come out in front of them. What they may be underestimating is the rage they will generate on the part of millions of independents. But then, they have already lost many of the independents with their ramming through of ObamaCare.
