NY1: Gillibrand Switching on Immigration


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.
