Reid expressed confidence that the Senate would pass a broad immigration overhaul bill, but he was less certain about the shape of any gun bill that might come to the floor.
Reid declined to criticize the National Rifle Association for its staunch opposition to gun control proposals. “Just because they resist it doesn’t mean we can’t do things,” he said. “We’ll listen to them and make the right decision.”
United We Dream protesters carry a mock coffin to the office of Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, in the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Monday, July 21, 2014, to hold one of their "funeral services for the Republican Party" due to GOP positions on immigration. The immigration reform group visited several other Senate Republican offices to hold similar funeral services.
