Washington Post: Top Senate Democrats Offer Obama Support on Immigration

The Washington Post reports that six senior Democratic senators expressed support Monday for President Obama’s plans to take executive action to change the nation’s immigration laws, telling him to “improve as much of the immigration system as you can.” The letter was signed by Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) and his three deputies — Sens. Richard J. Durbin (D-Ill.), Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Patty Murray (D-Wash.). They were also joined by Sens. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) and Michael Bennet (D-Colo.). Durbin, Schumer, Menendez and Bennet were the four Democrats in the bipartisan “Gang of Eight” that wrote the immigration bill passed by senators last year.
