McConnell Doesn’t Expect Immigration Overhaul This Year

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.

    Can I simply say what a reduction to search out somebody who really is aware of what theyre talking about on the internet. You definitely know easy methods to bring an issue to light and make it important. Extra people must read this and perceive this aspect of the story. I cant believe youre no more widespread because you positively have the gift.

    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!
