WASHINGTON — Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) attempted on Thursday to call Republicans’ bluff on immigration reform: If they’re truly concerned about how President Barack Obama will enforce the law, he said, they should pass a bill that would go into effect after he leaves office.
“Here’s a suggestion to resolve the impasse. I think it’s fairly reasonable,” Reid said at a press conference. “Let’s pass immigration reform today and make it take effect at the beginning of 2017. Republicans don’t trust President Obama. Let’s give them the chance to implement the bill under President Rand Paul or President Theodore Cruz.”
