Expert: Senate Immigration Bill a 'Balancing Act'

"Proponents of the bill face an even tougher challenge: how to lure more Republicans to support the legislation without alienating Democrats and losing the support of key immigrant rights' groups.  "It's a balancing act," said Stephen Yale-Loehr, an immigration expert and professor of law at Cornell University Law School.  "The Gang of Eight has done a great job so far of walking that tightrope.  Now we'll see whether they can continue to do so on the Senate floor."  The Senate is expected to begin debating the bill by June 10.  Supporters hope to pass it before the Fourth of July recess." - USA Today, June 3, 2013.
