Or early 2010! From New America Media:
Pro-immigrant advocates believe the Obama administration will have a window of opportunity between this September and March 2010 to shepherd a comprehensive immigration package that will provide a path to legalization for an estimated 12 million undocumented residents, strengthen border security and help[!] the ailing economy.
Ira Mehlman, speaking on behalf of the Federation for American Immigration Reform, says ‘no way’ will the Obama Administration push amnesty if the economy still stinks later this year.
“I’m not sure if any of those folks want to go back to voters in 2010 with the economy bad and say to voters, ‘We didn’t do much to fix the economy, but we passed amnesty for 13 million (undocumented) immigrants,” said Mehlman.
