Immigration Bill Represents Fundamental Shift in GOP

Fresh from their defeat on Obamacare, the Republicans have decided to throw caution to the wind and touch a third rail of politics.

A bill introduced into the Senate by Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) and David Perdue (R-Ga.) and supported by President Trump would overhaul the U.S. immigration system. The bill would shift priorities for immigrants to an employment basis while reducing the number of legal immigrants overall.
