House Democrat Luis Gutierrez, one of his party's leading voices pushing for immigration reform, told a Chicago Public Radio reporter today that the GOP. Gutierrez is the latest Democrat to suggest openness to the Republicans piecemeal approach (others including President Obama and Senator Dick Durbin). From Huffington Post:

"We are going to do them piecemeal, but in the end you're going to have a full menu," Gutierrez said on Chicago Public Radio's "Afternoon Shift." Gutierrez has said before that he's open to a piecemeal approach to immigration reform, as long as it eventually includes different measures affecting security, the so-called Dreamers and new workers.

Gutierrez acknowledged that Democrats need to change their strategy, given the current balance in Congress.

"Democrats in the House of Representatives have to stop negotiating from the point of view that they're in the majority," he said. "We're not."

Gutierrez also said that the piece of immigration legislation that is most likely to get passed will be a version of the Dream Act, which would provide a path to citizenship for the Dreamers, people brought to the United States as children who also meet other requirements.
