The Daily Quote

"[Rep. Raul] Labrador (R-Idaho) said in a statement Friday that he was ‘disappointed’ in Boehner’s remarks conveyed back home in Ohio, in which he appeared to theatrically mimic House Republicans and their refusal to take up an immigration overhaul... Labrador said. 'The vast majority of House Republicans are pro-immigration reform, and we have been working hard to achieve it.' In an appearance before the Middletown Rotary Club Thursday, Boehner stressed that he was committed to rewriting immigration laws and that he’s had 'every brick and bat and arrow shot at me' because of his push to do so. 'Here’s the attitude. “Ohhhh. Don’t make me do this. Ohhhh. This is too hard,”’ Boehner said of his fellow House Republicans... House Republican leadership has no plans to take up immigration reform in the immediate future. A memo released Friday by Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) outlining the House’s spring agenda did not mention immigration."
