Your Thursday Morning Immigration News Round Up

Posted By on Thu, Aug 8, 2013 at 12:00 PM

Talking Points Memo's Sahil Kapur runs through a scenario that could lead to the passage of comprehensive immigration reform:


Democrats’ prime directive is to get to a House-Senate conference committee, which requires the House Republican majority to bring up and pass core components of reform, including bills to beef up border security, overhaul the guest worker program and — here’s where it gets very difficult — some sort of path to eventual citizenship for people living in the country illegally.

“We would prefer a big comprehensive bill but any way the House can get there is okay by us,” Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said Wednesday on CNN. “If they pass individual, smaller bills they will get agglomerated.”

In other immigration news: Arizona Public Media's Michel Marizco gets the lowdown on the DREAM 9's release from detention for NPR's Fronteras desk and Rep. Steve King is defending his assertion that DREAM Act kids are drug smugglers.
