Comment: Friends Push House On CIR


The New York Times reports that a coalition of business leaders and conservative stalwarts made a strong push on the Capitol Hill yesterday to convince House Republicans to take up Comprehensive Immigration Reform in this term.

"On Tuesday, the group of more than 600 leaders from roughly 40 states descended on the Capitol for meetings with nearly 150 Republican lawmakers. They are largely taking aim at House Republicans who they think could support a broad immigration overhaul, including some sort of legal status for the 11 million immigrants in the country illegally. The leaders are urging the lawmakers to take a more proactive role in pushing immigration legislation to a House vote... The event's sponsors include the Chamber of Commerce; FWD.us, a political action group founded by Mark Zuckerberg, the creator of Facebook; the National Immigration Forum; and the Partnership for a New American Economy, which is led by Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg of New York, Rupert Murdoch and Bill Marriott Jr."


The Republican Party needs to shed its anti-immigration image, and position itself to win over Latino voters it desperately needs to win the Presidency. Those House Republicans who are trying to play it safe by appeasing the anti-immigrant minority in their congressional districts would be advised to listen to these well-wishers who are taking the long-range perspective and urging them to do right by their party and their country.
