— A top White House adviser said the stars seemed aligned for Congress to pass comprehensive immigration reform this year.

Speaking Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” David Plouffe said support for reform is strong among lawmakers, the business community and the American people.

He said there’s, quote, “no reason” immigration reform shouldn’t move through Congress this year.

Plouffe also is optimistic about passing stricter gun laws but expects a long fight.

He said last month’s massacre at an elementary school in Connecticut, quote, “changed the debate.”

He said, quote, “It’s going to be a hard battle, but we’re confident.”

Well let's hope that it is better than the Immigration Act of 1986 that Reagn signed and Ted Kennedy helped push through Congress. It not only gave Amnesty to millions but led to about 12 million more illegals flocking to this country. It is cheap worker for Corporate America and their GOP partners and more votes for the Democrats, more members for the churchs and more taxes and less jobs for the rest us.
