Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart could be key in immigration reform
Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart, R-Miami, has been quietly working with Democrats in his chamber on immigration reform. But he could be most valuable in easing concerns among fellow Republicans, some who have already dismissed a deal in the Senate as "amnesty."
"If this was an easy lift it would have been done a long time ago," Diaz-Balart said today on CNN. "We've been hammering out our differences, we've been hammering out what needs to be fixed."
