The Odds of an Immigration Bill
Not impossible, but not that great.
Aug 5, 2013, Vol. 18, No. 44 • By FRED BARNES
The efforts of Gutiérrez, Ryan, and Goodlatte underscore the point that serious immigration reform is down but not out. It reminds me of tax reform in the 1980s, which seemed to have no constituency. The media repeatedly declared it dead. But it had influential advocates, and thanks to them it passed in 1986. Influential advocates are one thing immigration reform has plenty of.
