Despite strong support from the American people for comprehensive immigration reform – and a growing number of House Republicans supporting it or signing on as cosponsors to H.R. 15 – Speaker John Boehner has already decided the Republican-led House will not be taking action. According to Roll Call:
“‘Frankly,’ Boehner told reporters, GOP leaders ‘have no intention of ever going to conference’ with the Senate-passed comprehensive immigration overhaul bill, even if Republicans pass a bill of their own.”
So much for letting the House work its will, as Republicans once promised.
