Default GOP lawmakers to block Democrats' efforts to push ahead with immigration reform

GOP lawmakers to block Democrats' efforts to push ahead with immigration reform
They'll join other GOP lawmakers to block Democrats' efforts to push ahead with immigration reform, two Republican U. S. senators said on Sunday.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell , R-Ky., said on "Fox News Sunday", "I just don't think this is the right time to take up this issue, with the border security problems, the drug wars going on across the border, 10 percent unemployment."
The push for immigration reform by the White House and congressional Democrats comes amid widespread protests and threatened legal challenges over the nation's toughest law targeting illegal immigrants, signed on Friday by Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer.
Other issues pending in Congress must take precedence over immigration reform, Sen. Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga., said on CNN's "State of the Union".
He said, "We've got a lot of work left on our plate between now and the end of the summer, and we're starting on financial regulatory reform."
"Until you secure the border, trying to really have an overall reform package on immigration just simply can't be done . Border states have unique problems when it comes to immigration," Chambliss said, calling for tighter border security.
"This is one situation where the state of Arizona has decided to take matters into their own hands. And if that's what the people of Arizona want to do, then certainly they have that right," he said, referring to the Arizona law.
Congress could and should deal with financial reform and take on immigration and climate change this session, Sen. Robert Menendez, D-N. J., head of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, told CNN.
The Arizona law demonstrates the need for immigration reform, Menendez also said. (With Inputs from Agencies)
