Slow Pace of Immigration Talks Irks Leahy

“After slamming the door on our efforts for comprehensive immigration reform during the Bush administration, I welcome Republicans to this effort. While I still worry that too many continue to oppose a straightforward pathway to citizenship, that is a discussion we need to have out in the open, in front of the American people,” Leahy said.

Meanwhile, gang of eight member Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., said Wednesday that the group is “moving as fast as we can” to draft legislation based on its framework.
