Immigration reform legislation could provide an unexpected boost for defense firms, and one senior senator says pro-Republican business leaders’ political heft is needed to persuade House leaders to move a bill.
The Senate, last year, passed a sweeping immigration-reform measure that proposes $38 billion for new American-made weapon systems. But House Republicans, who control the lower chamber’s agenda, are skeptical not only about spending that much — but also about a slew of other immigration issues.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., and GOP leaders say the chamber will tackle immigration reform piece by piece, rather than the soup-to-nuts approach employed by the Senate.
