House GOP Immigration Vote Not Expected For Several More Months. By Roger Algase

Rate this Entry


POLITICO reports on January 30 that the House Republicans are not expected to vote on immigration reform anytime soon, according to the Chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee. See: Greg Walden: No House immigration vote soon.

According to Walden (R-Ore.) there is little chance of a vote for at least several months: The reason:

"By the time you get to June, most of them [the primaries] are behind you."

Is it just barely possible that the reason why the House GOP leaders didn't vote on reform last year and are only promising to come up "principles" now (whatever that means) is because their members are terrified of Tea Party primary challenges?

Is everything else that has been raised as an objection to reform or reason for postponing action, from Benghazi and Syria to "border security", "pathway to citizenship" and executive action, to name only a few of the many excuses for letting reform languish, nothing more than a smoke screen for pandering to the anti-immigrant white supremacists in the Republican base?

Of course, I wouldn't want to sound cynical.
