Immigration senators: Boston no excuse to nix bill
Monday - 4/22/2013, 11:28am EDT
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Two senators who helped write bipartisan immigration legislation say the Boston Marathon bombings should expedite an overhaul of the current system.
Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina said Sunday that the bombings that left three dead "should urge us to act quicker, not slower when it comes to getting the 11 million identified," referring to the estimated number of immigrants living in the country illegally. Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York added "keeping the status quo is not a very good argument, given what happened" in Boston.
Schumer says critics are using the bombings to oppose a proposal they disliked from the start. He says that if they have suggestions to make the proposal better, they should speak up.
They spoke on CNN's "State of the Union."
