Powerful Democratic senators are considering including a measure in the Senate’s defense authorization bill that would offer legal status to young undocumented immigrants who join the military.

With a similar effort in the House stalled, the Senate might provide a new opportunity for immigration advocates. But some senators are warning that including the proposal could sink the annual defense bill, one of the few must-pass bills remaining in Congress.

McCain is actually not sure about supporting this. Graham wants it.

You got McCain, Graham and Ayotte as the amnesty supporters. Maybe Hagan and Manchin can be convinced to block it only Graham votes for it.

As we watch this unfold, bear in mind that linda is in quite a battle here in SC for her senate seat. And she’s got to get at least 50% in the primary to avoid a runoff. With six opponents (Det Bowers, Lee Bright, Richard Cash, Bill Connor, Benjamin Dunn, and Nancy Mace) the chances of her getting more than 50 in the primary are pretty slim.

She is currently riding her bicycle pretty hard to the right. It will be interesting to see how this legislative wrangling influences her campaign.
