As of now, Kline and Paulsen aren’t among those targeted, but the SEIU is wading into Kline’s Second Congressional District to test voter sentiment.

A Public Policy Polling poll commissioned by the union and released Tuesday indicated that residents of the district want action on the issue.

The Democratic-leaning firm’s survey of 781 likely voters found that three-fourths of Republicans and independents, and more than 80 percent of Democrats, want Congress to pass reform with a pathway to citizenship.

While advocates consider the time ripe for reform, however, the clock is ticking.

The soonest the House could tackle the any legislation is after Veterans Day.

Members are back in their home districts on recess this week, where they’ll likely hear from more people pushing for a path forward on immigration.
