Edgar joins call for immigration reform
“This is the best opportunity we’ve had in the political climate, which unfortunately I think has held us up in the past. I think the realization today in both parties is that most Americans want to see this issue dealt with and that we can’t keep shifting it into the shadows and think it’ll go away. It won’t go away. We got to deal with it.”
Edgar praises recent immigration reform efforts, like the proposed federal Dream Act and a new state law allowing people to obtain driver’s licenses, even if they’re living in the country illegally.
