‘I think Democrats and Republicans have been driven into their respective corners’


WONG: "I think that’s what’s being discussed. If you do away completely with the lottery system, the plan, the bipartisan plan that Lindsey Graham and dick Durbin put forward would have shifted 50,000 slots over to countries that are dealing with either manmade disasters, civil war, strife or natural disasters like we saw in El Salvador and in Haiti. These are — there’s a lot of questions that still have not been resolved. The president’s comments, controversial remarks have only sort of inflamed the situation. I think Democrats and Republicans have been driven into the respective corners. That’s not a great place to be with four legislative days before a government shutdown."
