Boehner Planning on Releasing Immigration "Principles" in Coming Weeks

Rate this Entry
Speaker John Boehner told colleagues in a closed door meeting this morning that Republicans are working on a list of principles that will be released in the coming weeks. From the LA Times:

House speaker John A. Boehner told rank-and-file Republicans that his leadership team was drafting “principles” for overhauling immigration laws that will be presented in coming weeks.

Boehner made the remarks Wednesday during the first private meeting of House
Republicans in the new year. House Republicans have struggled to respond to the Senate's immigration bill that passed in June, which would create a path to citizenship for 11 million immigrants who entered the U.S. illegally. Boehner refused to bring the Senate bill up for a vote in the House last year and instead said the House should consider a series of narrower measures.

"We are working on a standards or principles document," Boehner said, according to a person in the room granted anonymity to discuss the private session. The document is being drafted by Boehner, his leadership team, including House Majority Leader Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.) and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), as well as other members interested in the issue.

Boehner will likely wait until the filings for Republican primaries are past before things really get moving in order to insulate Republican incumbents from having to vote on immigration bills that could be used against them by far right candidates.
