The revelation that two immigrants living legally in the United States were the suspects behind the Boston Marathon bombings has become fodder in the national debate over an immigration bill, as reform skeptics cautioned against moving too fast in granting legal status to millions of immigrants.
Echoing those concerns, Sen. Dan Coats (R-Ind.) said during a morning interview Sunday on ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos” that reform “has national security implications” and should be put on hold.
“We have a broken system,” he said. “It needs to be reformed. But I’m afraid we’ll rush to some judgments.”
