So Immigration Reform is being discussed at the National level. What are your thoughts in Raleigh? How will this reform impact North Carolina?
Also Senator Rubio is being credited for his efforts in dealing with this issue.
Lou Dobbs: had stated : “I want to give Rubio credit because I really believe, I mean, he has really been working on this issue. He’s been working on it, I know, for most of 2012. And what form that takes, I don’t know yet. But I do know that he’s talking intelligently about a rational, effective, humane response to the issue. And the idea is going to be whether Republican Party has the ability, the capacity, the will, to put him in a position so that he can represent the party on an issue – or whomever the party decides – will have the strongest voice and has the best ideas to put forward.” Check out the video of Lou Dobbs at : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=99il1cd8tws
So what do you think in Raleigh about the issue ? How should it be handled?
