She(U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand) said broad reforms are needed, such as giving illegal immigrants in the Unites States a path to citizenship. She pointed to the recently passed Dream act — which lifted tuition regulations and provides a path to citizenship for illegal immigrant teenagers hoping to go to college — as a sign that progress is being made on the topic.

“I really believe this is something that could happen this year,” she said.
Likely meant introduced, or she just knows the DREAM Act will pass.

Quote:
Gillibrand has said she understands she now represents a broader constituency as a senator and has traveled the state in recent months in an effort to broaden her knowledge on New Yorkers’ prevailing positions on key issues.
And then, New Yorkers' prevailing position on immigration is pass the DREAM Act and then work on CIR.

The quotes in the OP are from a post on the DA Portal foum back in 2009 possible leading from this article in the NY Times at the same date

http://www.nytimes.com/2009/02/02/ny...02kirsten.html

She was taken to task for pushing the interests of certain "constituents" rather than representing the broader base of NY voters.

Once her little east Podunk corner of upper NYS is overrun with illegals, she'll be whistling a different tune when her law abiding, taxpaying voting constituents vote her sorry, pandering arse out.

Going by the topic, I guess, without using their own head or getting the full scoop on an issue, politicians change their stance on immigration by what ever highest ethnic majority there is in their jurisdiction. Whether Legal US Citizens or not.

update on Gillibrand...
