A latest John Boehner comment suggests that immigration reform dead in 2013. Here are latest news update on the issue.

Immigration reform bill doesn’t seem to have any chance of being presented in the House of Representatives this year, let alone being passed from the House. After talking favourably about presenting immigration reform bill in the House a few weeks ago, House Speaker john Boehner has said that he doesn’t expect the immigration bill to be presented in the House of Representatives.

This means that the hopes of eleven million undocumented immigrants have faded about seeing the immigration bill being passed from the House this year at least.

To be true it is a sort of volte-face by top GOP leader John Boehner that no one actually expected from him. He had promised to bring the bill to the table in the House of Representative and had said that he expected some development in the right direction later this year. But the only development we have seen from him is that he is sitting on the bill and not allowing it to be discussed in the House. And now after sitting on it for around five months he is saying that he doesn’t expect the bill in the House to move now.

He has almost killed the comprehensive immigration reform bill. John A. Boehner says, “I’ll make clear we have no intention ever of going to conference on the Senate bill,” giving more than enough hints that the bill is already dead. Next year there are many more issues that will be keeping the House busy and the bad blood between Republicans and Democrats will make it all the more difficult to reach consensus and take any decision.
