How Democrats Could Blow Immigration

Kaplan, Rebecca
May 2013
National Journal;5/3/2013, p10
The author examines the chances for the immigration-reform bill to pass the U.S. Congress. She advises immigration-reform advocates to make certain concessions to win Republican votes if they want to pass their bill. She claims that the Congressional Black Caucus wants to restore the Diversity Visa lottery which was removed from the Senate bill to appease Republicans.
