White House Official Predicts Little Action on Immigration Until October

Rating: 2 votes, 5.00 average.
Cecilia Muñoz, the domestic policy adviser who is the President's main point person on immigration, is predicting that the House won't do much on immigration until the fall. Fox News Latino reports:

Muñoz, who has been a point person for Obama on immigration policy, said that significant movement on an immigration reform measure, or measures, was unlikely to happen before October. She said there are few legislative days in September, when members of Congress are to return from summer recess, and that their focus will be the debt ceiling and the budget.

That is later than the August deadline that President Obama had hoped for earlier this year, expressing concern that delays could hurt the chances of an immigration reform bill passing by December.

And in an interview with Fox News Latino a few weeks ago, Muñoz had said she hoped there would be a vote on a reform bill before October. But on Monday Treasury Secretary Jack Lew set a mid-October debt-ceiling deadline, and some Republicans in the House are saying that it makes major action on immigration bills unlikely in that month, according to Politico.com

    Chances for immigration reform 2013-14 will become 55-45 if the Dems sweep all three races in Virginia on November 5, particularly if McAuliffe defeats Cuccinelli. If the reverse happens all bets are off.
