Citizenship Will Be Key to Any Immigration Bill, Reid Says

Chris Maddaloni/CQ Roll Call File Photo
Speaking to reporters in Nevada, Reid was adamant that an immigration package include provisions beyond merely granting undocumented immigrants a form of legal status short of full citizenship.

Reid posed for a photo with a pistol at his home after the interview. He explained that he used to be a hunter and still has a room full of guns in his house. On the topic of gun violence, he expressed support for mental health care and said, I think there can be general agreement that we can do a much more thorough and better job of figuring out the backgrounds of would-be gun buyers.

The Nevada Democrat also reiterated his position, reported early this week, that he would not support moving a radical change in filibuster rules on a simple majority vote. He did not rule out using a simple-majority vote to make the changes to the rules that he does envision, however, the Sun reported.
