Obama Renews Immigration Push as Doubts Emerge

The White House "is intensifying its push to get an immigration overhaul through Congress this year, but House Speaker John Boehner cast new doubt Wednesday about the prospects for quick action," the Wall Street Journal reports.

"President Obama brainstormed at the White House Wednesday with religious leaders over how to persuade House Republicans to move on the issue... But Mr. Boehner said House lawmakers wouldn't vote on any immigration bills while Republicans work on 'principles' behind legislation. Many advocates for an immigration overhaul read the Ohio Republican's announcement as a setback."
