A senior Democratic senator predicted Sunday there could be massive demonstrations in Washington if House Republicans try to block a bill to grant legal status to millions of immigrants.
Sen. Charles Schumer (N.Y.), the lead Democratic sponsor of the Senate immigration reform bill, said House Republicans would likely spark massive civil rights rallies if they try to quash measures to create a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants already in the country.
How could there be massive demonstrations? Don’t those who are here illegally all “live in the shadows” cowering in fear?
Schumer might be getting ahead of himself though, because right now the Senate isn’t even a lock to pass the bill, though Harry Reid usually finds a way to buy off enough votes.
