U.S. must fix broken immigration system
South Bend Tribune
Those looking to the nation’s capital for much-needed action on immigration reform may be developing a serious case of whiplash.
Just within the past six months, the signs have veered between hopeful and hopeless. In February, House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, all but ruled out passage of immigration legislation before the fall elections. A few months later, there was talk of reform — not in one grand measure, but by piecemeal legislation. In a visit with the Editorial Board last month, U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, expressed confidence that this was the way reform could and would be accomplished before the November elections.
