Senators: Hold Immigration for Climate Change

Friday, 23 Apr 2010 08:50 AM

Key senators are pressing Democratic leaders not to let immigration reform bump a global warming bill, according to a report in The Hill.

Moving the immigration bill first threatens the opportunity of winning passage of climate change legislation, said Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.

“It destroys the ability to do something like energy and climate,” he concluded.

Graham joined Sens. John Kerry, D-Mass., and Joe Lieberman, I-Conn., in a meeting with Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., this week to discuss the bill and the Senate agenda.

Kerry and Lieberman revealed that Reid was committed to bringing their climate legislation to the floor, but a firm commitment on timing appeared to be missing.

Kerry said: “I asked the majority leader to do what he thinks is best, but he told us that he would [bring up climate change first].”
