New Senator Kirsten Gillibrand's "hinted
" change on immigration -- which was presaged by her employment
of a Bronx power broker's consulting firm -- is apparently proceeding on schedule. NY1
says Gillibrand has told their "sister station NY1 Noticias" that she will "support immigrant-friendly initiatives." She reportedly will back off her previous support
of a bill to deputize local officers to do immigration enforcement and, says National Review
, "she is now OK with so-called sanctuary cities" -- like us! (Of course, round our way it's a more bipartisan issue
.) "The Gillibrand rebranding," NR
continues, "speaks to how well Hispanic politicians and advocates have learned the political ropes." They're not the only ones who are learning.
