Outside of a noon pro-immigration prayer vigil on Capitol Hill, where he called the immigration restriction group Federation for American Immigration Reform — on the Hill this week lobbying members of Congress — “obscure and extreme,” Rep. Jared Polis (D-Colo.) told TWI that Rep. Joe Wilson’s (R-S.C.) outburst had hurt his own cause.
“I think when the American people saw that outburst, they saw it for what it was,” said Polis. “It’s created a backlash against the anti-immigrant position, and I think it’s helped the health care bill move forward. And it’s provided momentum for comprehensive immigration reform.”
