Democratic Operative Chuck Todd: White House Doesn't Think Immigration Reform Is Going To Happen

You know, it's almost as if this was a set-up to make the GOP look bad with Hispanics all along. Heck of a job by Marco Rubio to push a bill that everyone knew would fail in the House.

Well, unless Boehner caves.

What they need is, they need something to sort of force Boehner like at the last minute bring it to the floor the same way the fiscal cliff deal happened. The problem is there is no trigger at the end of the year, there isn't the end of this Congress there isn't this.

Meanwhile, Eric Cantor isn't giving up on it.

“The House may begin consideration of the border security measures that have been passed by the Homeland Security and Judiciary Committees and begin reviewing other immigration proposals,” Cantor wrote to fellow House Republicans.

The missive from Cantor is among the first official indications that an immigration reform measure could come to the House floor this month. The Senate passed its comprehensive bill June 27, and the focus now turns to the House.

The danger is the House can pass an enforcement only bill, go to conference with the Senate and come out with the Senate's pathway to citizenship nonsense back in.

The House GOP is going to have a caucus meeting this Wednesday to take the tempeture of members on immigration.

Here's my suggestion...skip it entirely.

If nothing happens on immigration in July before the August recess nothing will happen. Once they come back from their summer vacation it will be time to do budget/CR/debt ceiling hike. After the blood on the floor from that, no one is going to want to tackle immigration for awhile and then we're into 2014 and elections.

So instead of screwing around with immigration bills that won't go anywhere, why not start building political anger against ObamaCare, which in case you missed it on Friday is going to be nothing but an expensive fraud.
