The Wall Street Journal’s Jonathan Weisman has it from Scott Brown, who spoke to POTUS today, that the Democrats will move on immigration reform within the month.
Here’s what Brown had to say:
“He called me originally about illegal immigration, something that he wanted me to look at that was coming down the pike,” Brown says of the call, which also roamed onto other topics like basketball and financial regulation. “I told him and others that I will read anything and make a judgment when it comes forth.”
Alluding to the issue a few minutes later, Brown clarified what he told Obama. “When I said I have an open mind, it means I have an open mind to read the bill,” he said. “That doesn’t mean that I will vote for granting amnesty to anyone. But I want to be respectful to the president and to any member who brings me a proposal.”
UPDATE: Sen. McCain is now saying he will lead a Republican filibuster of any immigration reform bill ‘until the borders are secure.’
