Chamber Says Amnesty Bill 50-50
“There’s a fifty-fifty chance of a good immigration bill being signed by President Barack Obama, predicted Randy Johnson, a senior vice president at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. However, the House likely won’t grapple with the issue until October or November, he said. That’s yet another delay, because advocates had hoped to get a bill through the House before the August recess, or in September,” the Daily Caller reports.

“The biggest obstacle facing immigration reform may be not opposition but inertia. Leaders of the House of Representatives have said they plan to act, but with the coming months likely to be consumed by budget drama, immigration could fall by the wayside. If that happens, advocates of immigration reform have another idea: They’ll push Obama to press the button on the immigration-reform nuclear option,” The Atlantic reports.
