Top House Republican Wants No Immigration Deal This Year

Rep. John Carter (R-TX) said Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) is making a mistake pushing for an immigration overhaul this year, Roll Call reports.

Carter, "one of four GOP congressmen who was part of bipartisan negotiations over comprehensive immigration policy changes last year, said voting on the matter this year would distract from the party's efforts to highlight flaws in President Obama's health care law."

Said Carter: "I'm opposed to voting on a bill this year. I was in conference when John announced that. It was a surprise to me as much as it was a surprise to anybody else."
