Labrador Quits House Immigration Bill

A bipartisan House immigration group has lost one of its eight members, as conservative Rep. Raul Labrador (R-Idaho) informed colleagues Wednesday that he could not sign on to legislation the group hopes to release in the coming weeks. Labrador told reporters after an hour-long meeting that he was leaving the group because of concerns that the bill would not sufficiently protect taxpayers from footing the healthcare bill of undocumented immigrants.“I’m just going to move on and work with other members of the House Judiciary Committee to try to craft legislation that can actually pass the House,” Labrador said/Russell Berman, The Hill.

Question: Did Labrador make the right move?
