Comment: Rubio Of The House?
Journal Sentinal reports on a Paul Ryan town hall meeting where he set forth his proposals for immigration reform. Saying "Immigration is a good thing for this country. It is this country," he went on to outline his strategy for pushing immigration reform through the House. In the House last Friday, he said that intent "is to bring about five or six bills... to fix these problems in our immigration laws one step at a time in a comprehensive way." Ryan outlined a 15 year pathway to citizenship in his proposal. This pathway would provide undocumented immigrants with a "probationary visa" while they wait. Ryan acknowledges that the 15 year wait is a long time but he says, "that's a pretty good deal given that we have all these undocumented Americans." Paul Ryan with his high-profile vice-presidential run in 2012 is a key part of the next generation of Republican leadership. We hope that he can spearhead the passage of CIR in the House, just as Senator Rubio did in the Senate. Share your thoughts by writing to
