SBS is wrong about LULAC's opposition to Kennedy's Immigration Act of 2005

LULAC's Director of Policy and Legislation Gabriela Lemus, Ph.D: The bill sponsored by Senators, McCain Kennedy and Brownback - the Secure America and Orderly Immigration Act of 2005 - though not perfect, comes closest to the need of satisfactorily addressing these concerns. It provides a realistic approach to national security. It addresses the need for realistic reform with regards to the undocumented already in the United States. It protects workers and pay-rates, while reuniting families and restoring healthy migration patterns, and ensuring a timely, transparent and secure process for future flows.

LULAC's Wilkes told me they did ultimately back ending the filibuster. But Sharry said the groups' stances caused confusion, with some Democrats thinking the pro-immigration lobby was now opposed.
