House GOP Deeply Divided on Immigration Reform

House Republicans meeting privately at their retreat "were split on whether the leadership should forge ahead with immigration legislation this year," The Hill reports.

"Some conservative lawmakers, like immigration reform foe Rep. Steve King (R-IA), said the party should do nothing. Others... offered full support for the leadership principles and a green light for moving on to legislation. But a large contingent of members stood up to urge caution and voiced concerns not so much with the substance of the principles as with the timing of pushing immigration reform in an election year and under a Democratic president they don't trust to enforce the law."
