In anticipation of the July 10, 2013 House of Representative Republican conference meeting on immigration, last night the Democrats in the House had their own caucus, and were joined by the four Democratic Senators from the “Gang of Eight.” After the meeting Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) sent a letter to Speaker Boehner (R-OH) outlining Democrats position on reform:

“House Democrats’ priorities for immigration reform are the principles laid out by the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, with commitments to secure our borders, protect our workers, unite our families, and provide an earned pathway to citizenship. Each of these elements has bipartisan support…Mr. Speaker: if you decide to take up various elements of comprehensive immigration reform under separate votes, it is essential to remember that those key elements are interconnected and necessary for reform.”
