According to an article on chron.com: “The Congressional Hispanic Caucus denounced House Democratic leaders Wednesday as “spineless” and little better than Republicans for failing to take on comprehensive immigration reform.”
Immigration is a political hot potato that, at least in the current climate is best left alone. The time to judge the Democrats will be starting in 2009. Unfortunately, our system requires a lot of game-playing to get elected to office. Avoiding the immigration issue is good strategy as I believe it is a lose-lose topic.
