One proposal actually reduces visas for poor people from places like Africa, to make room for higher-achieving immigrants, favoring one group over the other. The other bill allows undocumented kids to attend college and get work visas.
But neither offers a path to citizenship, as The Post favors.
Why doesn’t The Post get local and offer some suggestions on how our own big-shot Republicans in Congress will get on board?
The Post need look no further than its own website to find Rep. Mike Coffman saying he opposes a path to citizenship. Rep. Scott Tipton also has opposed it on The Post’s pages, as did Rep. Doug Lamborn. Rep. Cory Gardner opposes it, too.
It’s great for The Post to favor comprehensive immigration reform and to criticize the GOP’s half-baked proposals.
But why be silent about the local Republican opponents.
Does The Post have any suggestions on how Colorado’s Republican Congressmen can buck off the hard-line anti-immigration activists and talk-radio hosts from their backs and support comprehensive immigration reform?
