Conservatives weigh in on immigration reform — Sean Hannity, John Boehner & Charles Krauthammer express their views


Conservative voice Sean Hannity

According to Frank Sharry, the Founder and Executive Director of America’s Voice, the “tectonic plates are shifting on immigration.”

“The fact that leading movement conservative voices are joining Republican leaders in calling for immigration reform that includes relief for the 11 million undocumented immigrants in America is a major development that will open up space for the GOP to do the right thing and help pass sensible reform legislation,” Sharry wrote in an American Voice blog.

Over the weekend, Sen. Chuck Schumer said he would be making a renewed appeal to pass nation’s immigration laws along with Sen. Lindsey Graham.

America’s Voice points to the latest comments regarding the topic from various influential Republicans and conservatives as a sure sign that reform will happen sooner, rather than later.

Sean Hannity, the influential Fox News television and radio host said on his show last Thursday that he has “evolved” on the issue. He said the US needs to “get rid of the immigration issue altogether” and that he supports a “pathway to citizenship.”

Speaker of the House John Boehner told ABC News that the issue has been around far too long.

“A comprehensive approach is long overdue, and I’m confident that the president, myself and others can find the common ground to take care of this issue once and for all,” he said.

Conservative columnist and pundit Charles Krauthammer wrote in the Washington Post, that amnesty may be likely.

“In securing the Republican nomination, Mitt Romney made the strategic error of (unnecessarily) going to the right of Rick Perry. Romney could never successfully tack back. For the party in general, however, the problem is hardly structural. It requires but a single policy change: Border fence plus amnesty. Yes, amnesty.”

Krauthammer added: “promise amnesty right up front. Secure the border with guaranteed legalization to follow on the day the four border-state governors affirm that illegal immigration has slowed to a trickle.”
