5/21 Update 1


Richard Lugar is definitely "Leans FOR" right now:
Andy Fisher, a spokesman for Indiana Sen. Richard Lugar, said on Friday that Lugar supported the immigration bill the U.S. Senate drafted in 2006, which "follows many of the same principles as the agreement reached today."

"Throughout the debate Sen. Lugar has emphasized that immigration policy should be updated in a comprehensive way to provide some realistic resolution to the status of at least 12 million undocumented immigrants," Fisher said. "This comprehensive approach includes greater border security and some provisions for a temporary worker program."

Marilyn Musgrave (R-CO) goes in "Undecided" while she waits to read the still-not-finalized text of the bill.

Republican Sen. Wayne Allard and Rep. Marilyn Musgrave want to see the legislation before embracing or rejecting it.

Dave Weldon (R-FL) calls this a "bad bill." so he's in "FIRM AGAINST."

We're taking public calls for "Comprehensive Immigration Reform" from Mike Honda (D-CA) and putting him in "Leans For" until we have news to the contrary.

We've put Bud Cramer (D-AL) in Leans Against based on impressions of a constituent.

Joe Donnelly (D-IN) gave neutral comments and wants to review the bill, so he's in "Undecided."

Tim Walberg (R-MI) opposes per a constituent who contacted his office.

We've moved Heath Shuler (D-NC) to Leans Against because of immigration comments made shortly prior to the bill's release about the rumored content of the bill.
