Comment

Gutierrez On The Mat

We applaud Congressman Gutierrez's principled support of immigration reform by his threatened "No" vote on the health care bill. "Am I going to vote for the proposal as it is currently formulated? No." "Gutierrez and some members of the Hispanic Caucus are also threatening not to support the Obama health plan because the legislation would not allow illegal immigrants to buy health insurance with their own money in the new federal exchanges that would be created in the plan." We urge supporters of immigration in Congress to try to extract explicit public promises from President Obama, Speaker Pelosi, and Majority Leader Reid that they will take up Comprehensive Immigration Reform as soon as the health care issue is out of the way. The time to act is now.

We welcome readers to share their opinion and ideas with us by writing to editor@ilw.com.
