Patrick Leahy To Chuck Grassley: Don’t ‘Exploit’ Boston BombingPatrick Leahy To Chuck Grassley: Don’t ‘Exploit’ Boston Bombing:
“Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) chastised some of his Republican colleagues on Monday for saying immigration reform should be delayed in light of the bombing last week in Boston, accusing them of taking advantage of the tragedy to push their own political agenda.
“Late last week opponents of comprehensive immigration reform began to exploit the Boston Marathon bombing,” Leahy said at the second Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on an immigration bill released last week by the “gang of eight.” “I urge restraint in that regard. … Let no one be so cruel as to try to use the heinous acts of two young men last week to derail the dreams and futures of millions of hardworking people.”"
