Can't a Republican Get Any Peace?

Hosted by

Internet moguls and evangelicals, big business and organized labor are among the odd bedfellows pushing Republicans in Congress to vote for immigration reform. Instead of waiting until the end of the August recess, the campaign is being stepped up. This morning, a caravan of 100 cars and four buses left Dodger Stadium for the office of Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy in Bakersfield. One organizer was CHIRLA, the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles. McCarthy and other Republican leaders favor a step-by-step approach that emphasizes border security, but he's still getting heat from groups like Californians for Population Stabilization.
