Democrats Prioritize Immigration
Democratic leaders plan to prioritize the immigration bill ahead of the energy bill, reported the Wall Street Journal.
According to the Hill, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, with the help of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, is sill intent on passing climate legislation but believes both are important bills.
Also, according to a new poll from Ipsos and Telemundo, four out of five Hispanics believe the economy has already stabilized or has already started to improve.
In the House, Hispanic leaders have asked President Barack Obama to block a recently passed law in Arizona that would allow police to check immigration status for people simply for suspecting they're illegal immigrants.
