Becerra Pushes Immigration Overhaul as Deficit Reducer Again

Becerra hopes an increasing urgency to avert a government shutdown or debt limit showdown and the momentum for an immigration rewrite could lead to success for his plan.

In the meantime, Becerra plans to continue probing the subject with his colleagues in Democratic leadership and the rank and file, and he will probably mention it to fellow House members on the Republican side of the aisle when Congress officially returns from recess next week.

“Do I have a grand plan? No, because I have to plant the seed,” Becerra said. “Right now, I have a real seed that has proven to germinate, because the CBO says it’s gonna grow some real good flowers so we can harvest something.”
