Should Republicans in Congress Vote on Immigration Reform This Year? [POLL]
Immigration Reform is a hot topic in Washington even though many would like the issue to go away for at least six months. House Republicans have been feeling pressure by Democrats and moderate Republicans to hold a vote on the issue this year. Yesterday, Breitbart News reported that Speaker John Boehner made a commitment to try and pass legislation this year.
After hailing the Senate’s amnesty bill that the Congressional Budget Office determined would lower the wages of American workers, Valerie Jarrett, Obama’s senior advisor, told attendees at the yearly invitation-only SkyBridge Alternatives Conference that Boehner would help the White House make a push get immigration reform enacted in the next three months.
“I think we have a window this summer, between now and August, to get something done,” Jarrett said, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “We have a commitment from Speaker Boehner, who’s very frustrated with his caucus.”
