House Immigration Negotiators Mull Citizenship Compromise

“I don’t care if the cat is white or black so long as it kills the mouse,” said Frank Sharry, executive director of America’s Voice, an advocacy group. “If once we see the details, it seems complicated and it would leave millions of people out, that would be a problem.”

But Sharry said he is optimistic that the Democrats negotiating on the bill would not let that happen.

Ali Noorani, executive director of the National Immigration Forum, also inserted a note of caution.

“Linking citizenship to a third party runs the risk of opening the door to exploitation by unscrupulous individuals looking to take advantage of those who seek the American dream,” he said.
