McConnell Doesn’t Expect Immigration Overhaul This Year

(Bill Clark/CQ Roll Call)

(Bill Clark/CQ Roll Call)

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said he doesn’t see an immigration overhaul happening this year.

“I think we have an irresolvable conflict here,” McConnell said. “The Senate insists on comprehensive. The House says it won’t go to conference with the Senate on comprehensive and wants to look at it step by step. I don’t see how you get to an outcome this year with the two bodies in such different places.”

His comments come after the Republican-run House released principles for doing an immigration overhaul. Some Republican want to hope to address the matter to take the issue off the table for Democrats and begin the effort to win over new voters.

The Senate passed a bipartisan, comprehensive bill in June. But the measure was not taken up by the House with many Republicans concerned over a provision in the package providing a 13-year path to citizenship to illegal immigrants, which some saw as amnesty for those that broke the law.

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a forty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

    I do agree with all of the ideas you have presented in your post. They are very convincing and will certainly work. Still, the posts are very short for novices. Could you please extend them a little from next time? Thanks for the post.

    I intended to create you one very small note just to thank you very much yet again with your striking solutions you have provided at this time. It is really strangely generous of you to present freely exactly what many of us would have marketed as an e book to earn some dough for their own end, notably considering that you might well have tried it in the event you wanted. These tricks as well worked to provide a good way to comprehend most people have the same passion just like my own to realize more and more around this condition. I am sure there are millions of more pleasant instances in the future for many who go through your website.
