Latest From House GOP Leaders: Immigration Reform 2013 - RIP. By Roger Algase

Rating: 9 votes, 3.67 average.

The latest report from Politico is that Immigration Reform is still dead in the House for this year. See October 27, House leaders plot new fall GOP strategy.

The Politico article has a long list of items which the House GOP leadership is considering taking up during the comparatively few days that the House will be in session at all during the remainder of 2013. But the last paragraph reads:

"Here's what won't get done: immigration reform. The process is completely stalled and many are pronouncing it dead. House Republican leadership has no plans to bring any bill to the floor - even one to bulk up border security - because of concerns among the rank and file that it could be forced into a bad deal with Obama and the Democratic-controlled Senate."


I hate to sound cynical, but one has to wonder if all the talk about "piecemeal" House immigration bills, including House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte's (R-VA) much discussed proposals, both known and secret, as well as the latest reported "guest worker" legalization proposal from Rep. Darryl Issa (R-CA) were ever meant as anything more than smoke and mirrors to make it seem as if the House had some intention of moving ahead with reform, when in fact it never had any.

Or, is it possible that the House Republican leadership may have been interested in doing something about reform until its Tea Party and Heritage Action masters cracked the whip?

Either way, RIP, CIR 2013.
