Immigration reform, for the public good

They call the strategy “slow-walk to death.” House Republicans can kill immigration reform by breaking the issue into pieces, stonewalling the bipartisan Senate bill, stalling until fall and pushing final action into 2014. That’s an election year, when they can extract the most blood from their Democratic enemies.

We hope that is not the plan. If it is, immigration reform of any kind will likely die, and that would be a disservice to the nation. Republicans know that. Everyone knows our immigration system is a wreck. To serve the needs of the economy, the nation and humanity, there must be something to pull us up from chaos.
