Republicans have done almost nothing when it comes to immigration reform 2013. But John Boehner is still reassuring people about comprehensive bill despite doing almost nothing in this direction.

John Boehner, House Speaker has been playing the cat and mouse game with eleven million undocumented immigrants for several months now. He had repeatedly said that he will take action on the immigration reform bill. But to be true he was just killing time over all these months so that the comprehensive immigration bill is killed slowly without people realizing the truth behind his assurances.

For the eleven million undocumented immigrants and their relatives the wait seems to be continuing for months. In June the Senate had passed the bill and since then people are keeping their fingers crossed as the bill is awaiting the time when it is actually tabled in the House of Representatives by none other than John Boehner who leads his party in the House of Representatives. For the last several months the immigration reform activists were hoping that after dilly dallying of months the Republicans will finally take a call on the issue and introduce the bill in the House with an aim to show to the world that they actually care for the people who have been at the receiving end of the society.

John Boehner, in the meantime, has been trying to keep the people guessing. Reports suggest that the House speaker has a hard time herding his cats, and getting them to line up on this topic will be difficult. In an otherwise ordinary list of new staffers, his office announced, “Rebecca Tallent will join the office as Assistant to the Speaker for Policy handling immigration issues.  Rebecca comes to us from the Bipartisan Policy Center, where she is the director of immigration policy.”

In the meantime there are some reports from Boehner’s office that we can expect some movement in this regard. His press secretary Michael Steel told Washington Post, “The Speaker remains hopeful that we can enact step-by-step, common-sense immigration reforms – the kind of reforms the American people understand and support…Becky Tallent, a well-known expert in this field of public policy, is a great addition to our team and that effort.” But we have seen many assurances in this regard in the past and there is no development so far. Should we still be hopeful?
