Inspired by Monday night’s Republican presidential debate over immigration, Rep. David Rivera, R-Miami, filed a bill that would give young people who serve in the military — not college students — a path to U.S. citizenship.
 
State & Local Update:
 
Republican Gov. Susana Martinez suffered a temporary political setback Thursday in a bid to stop New Mexico from granting driver's licenses to illegal immigrants.

No surprise that the Springfield Chamber of Commerce opposes E-Verify. Their titular head immediately declared it unwarranted when the ordinance was first announced, even though the local chamber has sought and received certification to use the system.
 
Rep. Tarah Toohil writesThe Pennsylvania House of Representatives is currently considering legislation that addresses the illegal immigration issue, which has become a major concern in many of the state's communities.
 
Border Security:
 
In a few brief seconds Thursday, the Senate joined in the farewell celebration for Gabrielle Giffords, the Arizona Democrat who resigned from the House on Wednesday a year after the Tucson shootings that left six dead and 13 injured.
