It's Back, in Pog Form
It looks like the Senate will get another crack at immigration reform. The WSJ makes an interesting point that some GOP senators are concerned about sticking their necks out and supporting immigration reform if it's just going to die in the House. That's actually something that I hadn't thought of before. The House is, by design and by nature, more reactionary. That's where the real immigration fire-breathers like Tom Tancredo are, and so it could be harder. What they need to do is keep it somewhat palatable for the Democrats without selling out to the unions while being able to pick up some of the moderate Republicans. It's possible, but it will be a balancing act. We'll see what happens!
