The Hill reports that some Democratic presidential candidates are promising to "reform" our immigration system early in a potential first term:
The campaigns of Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton (N.Y.) and Barack Obama (Ill.) say their candidates will seek comprehensive reform, a phrase that sometimes implies a guest worker program, as soon as they get to the White House.

Former Sen. John Edwards (N.C.), speaking at the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) political action conference Monday, said: “We’re going to ensure that every single person living in the United States of America has a completely achievable path to American citizenship so that they don’t live in the shadows.”
Members of Congress, however, are not as optimistic about passing "reform." Some activists are accusing these presidential candidates as posturing but unwilling to actually push for "reform."
