Another sign we're about to get in to a serious debate over immigration reform. From Roll Call:

According to Senate Democratic aides, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) agreed during a Tuesday afternoon meeting that a "moral imperative" exists to move immigration reform in 2010. The decision to press ahead on such a controversial issue now -- in an election year -- comes even though Democrats have had little success attracting GOP support for their initiatives in the 111th Congress.
