Greg Sargent Weighs in on House GOP Leadership

Share This:

Greg Sargent at the Washington Post reminds us that if immigration reform dies, it will be the House GOP’s fault:

* TIME TO INCREASE PRESSURE ON GOP OVER IMMIGRATION? Immigration advocacy groups are growing impatient with House GOP foot-dragging over immigration reform, and want Dems to exert more political pressure on Republicans to act. My sense of the situation is that the bipartisan House “gang of seven” plan — a potential vehicle for comprehensive reform — may get rolled out in October after the government shutdown fight is resolved. Barring that you may see votes on piecemeal measures.

Or maybe House Republicans will do nothing. If immigration reform dies, it will only be because House GOP leaders decided to kill it.
