Immigration Debate Does an About-Face

"What matters now is that both parties recognize that previous strategies have failed both parties.  Without bi‐partisan support, progress in congress is unlikely for Democrats, and without the immigrant vote, prospects for a successful 2016 Republican candidate are slim.  If Republicans and Democrats can fashion a sound strategy for immigration reform in the next two years, everyone wins." - L. Batya Schwartz Ehrens, Nov. 2012.
