McCarthy—Don’t Worry, We’ll Work this Immigration Thing Out

I dont find this passage in Costas interview with Kevin McCarthy very reassuring:

“On any issue, things can start off bad,” McCarthy says. “But there are two ways you can handle adversity — you can deny it or you can overcome it. We overcame it on the farm bill, and that was when we had a timeline that was very fast.” With immigration, he’s not asking his colleagues to endorse a plan, but hopes they can proceed. “We control our own clock, and we don’t have to worry about whether the Democrats are trying to speed it up,” he says. “If we take our time, we’ll be able to try to solve the problem.”
