ABC News’s Rick Klein Tweeted that Goodlatte told ABC reporter Jon Karl at the event that he is “still searching for ‘grand bargain’ on status of undocumented immigrants,” and that Goodlatte does “believe it will happen.”
Klein noted the comments came at the second annual “Creativity Conference,” an event hosted by the Motion Picture Association of America. The MPAA, which is run by former Sen. Chris Dodd (D-CT), is hosting the event alongside Microsoft at the Newseum in Washington, D.C.
Microsoft has lobbied for amnesty, and endorsed the Senate’s “Gang of Eight” immigration bill last year. Its headquarters is in the district of House GOP conference chairwoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers, who recently suggested there is a plan to bring immigration bills to the floor by August that would provide “legal status” to millions of illegal aliens.
