Governor says immigration reform has better chance in new Congress

November 14, 2010 § Leave a comment

New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson on Saturday said the new Congress has a better chance at enacting comprehensive immigration reform than the current Democrat-controlled Congress. “I do believe the chances are improved, (but) not dramatically improved,” Richardson told journalists attending CapitolBeat, a meeting for political and statehouse reporters from across the nation held in downtown Phoenix. That’s because Republicans will need something to show for their gains in the midterm elections, he said. The GOP won control of the House and narrowed its disadvantage with Democrats in the Senate. “It’s going to have to not be the ‘Party of No,’ ” he said of the Republicans, adding that immigration reform is ripe for a bipartisan accord. Richardson, a Democrat, is wrapping his second term as New Mexico’s governor. (azcentral)
