The Senate this week made serious efforts to work out a deal on immigration reform. Today, Senator Reid postponed the vote to end the negotiations until Monday.
Immigration is a thorny issue. It is probably wise for congress to take as much time as they need to get things hammered out as best they can. I can’t say that I think the developing bill will be great, but it looks like it will turn out a lot better than what we might expect from some of the more draconian conservatives.
Christians for Comprehensive Immigration Reform have come up with an agenda on immigration reform which is very consistent with my own beliefs on the issue. Lets hope they can work on congress to make sure that our immigration laws are consistent with moral principles—and lets do our part to persuade our legislators to support this vision.
