Labrador In Middle On Immigration

Raul R. Labrador is the only Puerto Rican, Mormon, tea-party immigration lawyer in Congress, which the Idaho Republican figures makes him the perfect bridge between the GOP’s hard-line resistance to an immigration overhaul and the urgent sense among Democrats that the November election won them a free hand on the issue. Labrador spent his first two years in Congress earning and burnishing a reputation as not just a “no” but a “hell no” vote on just about every spending and fiscal bill that has come across his desk. But on immigration, he is seeking a different role/Rosalind S. Helderman, Washington Post. More here.

Question: Do you think Congressman Labrador is well positioned to get something done on the ticklish immigration issue?
