Yesterday, reports emergedthat liberal Democrats won’t push too hard to assist illegal immigrantsunder health care reform as long as the White House commits this year to separate immigration reform complete with a plan to provide a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants already in the country. Today, Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) issued a warning: In this political and economic environment, an “amnesty” provision stands little chance of passing through Congress.
“If people are insistent upon amnesty,” Grassley told local reporters, “whether it’s a general immigration reform bill or whether it is just an agriculture bill for guest workers, I think it’s going to be very difficult to get it passed. … I don’t see how you can in this environment, where we have a recession. Even though there may be workers needed in a certain aspect of the U.S. economy, it’s pretty difficult to bring up even a narrowly drafted one as long as the issue of amnesty is part of it.”
He might have added, “in this environment, where we have looming elections.”
