The GOP's Immigration Platform, Revisited / by Maria Hinojosa | February 7, 2014

The GOP’s Immigration Platform, Revisited

Last week, the Republican Party introduced an immigration blueprint to their caucus that signaled an attempt by their party to tackle immigration reform. The one-page statement of principles emphasized strong border control and repeated a claim of the Republicans that there would be “no special path to citizenship.” So, how does this change the debate and what does this mean for the chances of passing immigration reform this year? We spoke to Pilar Marrero, an author, political analyst and journalist at La Opinión about the implications of this document.
