Alison Grimes on Immigration
Supports bipartisan comprehensive immigration reform
In her first specific comments on what would be a priority for her if elected, Grimes singled out immigration reform. "My hope is that our current senior senator will not block the efforts of the bipartisan work that the
Gang of Eight is trying to do for immigration reform," Grimes said in an interview with WHAS11.
"As the issues are going on, especially the ongoing negotiations and meetings, I look forward to having further substantive conversations with you about those," Grimes said.
In a key procedural vote on Monday afternoon, McConnell voted against cloture, saying the immigration reform bill was flawed.
