Immigration Reform Dying or Dead?

Over at Politico, the verdict is that immigration reform is dead. The step-by-step account is disheartening at several levels, but mostly because Republican congressional leaders could not find the courage to put the safety and welfare of 11 million people ahead of the internal politics of their caucus. I can understand a politician who does not wish to put his or her re-election at stake, but this was not even about that. It was about the politics on the Hill, not in the hinterlands. Too depressing.
