In the wake of a new CNN Poll showing Americans overwhelmingly support a pathway to citizenship, Former Secretary of State Colin Powell – a top Republican – had this to say about passing comprehensive immigration reform on MSNBC today:
“If not now, when? We keep putting it off…sufficient time has passed. We really have to buckle down and do something about immigration reform and do it as quickly as we can.”
It has been 225 days since the Senate passed a bipartisan immigration reform bill. In the House, H.R 15 has 196 bipartisan co-sponsors. The time to bring the bill to the House floor for a vote for the American people is now.
Speaker Boehner, enough with the excuses.
