Immigration is back in the national spotlight as a bi-partisan bill was announced this week ahead of President Barack Obama’s speech on immigration. Mackowiak predicts the bill will probably pass through the Senate within the next 6 to 8 weeks, but wasn’t sure if the House would be on board as well. Mackowiak also warned that Republicans will have to be careful about how they approach this bill.

“Smart Republicans understand we can’t continue to win 30% of the Hispanic vote when it’s growing as much as it is…immigration is a major issue, and we have to deal with it. We’ve got to bring these people out of the shadows and maybe give them a legal status so they can start paying taxes and start fully being part of America.”

Mackowiak also talked about the far-reaching possibility of Texas turning into a blue state, and also gave his thoughts on the upcoming State of the State address.
