Immigration Reform Unlikely

While President Barack Obama has delayed taking action on deportations to give House Republicans the opportunity to take action on immigration reform, it seems unlikely to happen soon.

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) released a memo, dated June 6, 2014, outlining the GOP-led House’s legislative priorities for June.  Among them are government funding on transportation, housing and urban development agencies, and agriculture and defense; as well as the SKILLS Act, which aim to improve job skills for workers.  Immigration reform is not included.

Advocates for immigration reform worry this summer may be the final opportunity for an overhaul on immigration legislation this year.  While it appears that some House Republicans are trying to work toward that goal behind the scenes, immigration reform continues to face seemingly insurmountable obstacles in Congress.
