Only Congress Could Screw Up Immigration Reform

Walter Shapiro: "We have reform legislation desperately sought by a key voting bloc, backed by powerful interest groups in both parties and the president, which will save the federal government money and requires neither Democrats nor Republicans to abandon a core element in their ideologies."

"If Washington cannot achieve bipartisanship with immigration reform under these favorable circumstances, then the next thing we will see are crippling filibusters over the naming of post offices. It doesn't get easier than this in politics. And yet the difficult struggle for immigration reform remains a testament to dysfunction in Washington."
