Can Immigration Reform Pass?

Major Garrett: "Immigration is, after all, the last remaining domestic priority President Obama and Boehner share. Obama and Boehner's relationship, while not warm, is less confrontational and more routinely civil. They've spoken twice since mid-November. Obama called Boehner to wish him happy birthday on Nov. 17 and after the House passed the budget deal. Dealings on Obama's State of the Union address, previously a bit nettlesome at the staff level, were routine. This doesn't mean immigration can or will pass. But irritants of the past are precisely that. New possibilities have presented themselves, and the political and tactical climate may, several months hence, be such that Obama and Boehner find passing immigration reform irresistible."
