Boehner to Obama: Good Chance for Amnesty Bill in Next Congress
Another reason to elect a conservative speaker.
Check it out:
House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) reportedly told President Barack Obama that there would be a good chance of passing a comprehensive amnesty bill in the next Congress, which the GOP may control.
On June 24, when Boehner told Obama there would not be a vote on amnesty legislation this year, he reportedly told him “that he believed there was a good chance a comprehensive bill could pass in the next Congress.”
According to a National Journal report, Obama, when meeting with pro-amnesty advocates last week to inform them that he would be pressing ahead with executive actions to ease deportations, said that “Boehner urged him not to press ahead with executive action because that would make legislating more difficult next year.”
Asked about the report, Michael Steel, a spokesman for Boehner, said “Speaker Boehner told the President exactly what he has been telling him: the American people and their elected officials don’t trust him to enforce the law as written. Until that changes, it is going to be difficult to make progress on this issue.”
