Is the GOP waffling on immigration reform?

Remember I told you recently that in conjunction with the March on America a couple of weeks ago, some open borders activists held a sit-in at GOP headquarters and as a result were promised a meeting with GOP chairman Michael Steele.  I thought the sit-in was pretty outrageous since it was right in the middle of the debate on whether Tea Party activists were agressive.  No one in the mainstream media even reported the sit-in.  Just imagine if Tea Partiers had bullied their way into DNC headquarters!  It would have led the nightly news on CBS, NBC, ABC, MSNBC and CNN. 

Michael Steele gave them their meeting and here is their report:

Yesterday, 10 FIRM leaders met with Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele to discuss immigration reform. The meeting was a direct result of a sit-in that activists staged on March 22nd at RNC headquarters. After the meeting, the leaders reported that Steele committed to:

…work with Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and the party’s leadership to enlist another Republican senator’s support for comprehensive and bipartisan immigration reform.

However, only a few hours later, a spokesperson for the RNC issued a statement denying any such commitment and backing away from support of immigration reform.

Read the rest of the article at the FIRM website.  How did the two sides come away with such diametrically opposed conclusions about what happened in the meeting?
