Republicans Now Signing On To Immigration Reform

Ros-Lehtinen becomes second Republican to back immigration bill. "Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.) on Tuesday became the second House Republican to endorse immigration reform legislation from Democrats. "It's important to keep the conversation going in trying to fix the broken immigration system. I favor any approach that will help us move the negotiations forward," the congresswoman said in a statement that was provided to The Hill by a spokesman...Rep. Jeff Denham (Calif.) became the first Republican to support Garcia's measure over the weekend." Rebecca Shabad in The Hill

More House Republicans may sign on soon. ""While I'm the first Republican to support this legislation I expect others to sign on in the coming days," Rep. Jeff Denham (R-Calif.) said during a conference call late Monday afternoon." Cameron Joseph in The Hill
