Back in early 2009 after she was appointed to replace Hillary Clinton, I did my best to try to keep her position on immigration as good as possible: start at the end of the Gillibrand link and work to the top. When Gillibrand represented upstate New York she was OK on immigration (a B grade from Numbers USA), but supporters of...

Kirsten Gillibrand supports anti-American DREAM Act - 12/27/11
