McConnell Says Immigration Bill Won't Pass

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said that "he does not see any way the Democratic-controlled Senate and GOP-led House will agree on immigration reform legislation this year," The Hill reports.

"McConnell's comments, which came after he met with the Senate GOP conference over lunch, poured cold water over the growing buzz there could be an immigration deal this year."

McConnell was quoted by NBC News: "I think we have a sort of an irresolvable conflict here. The Senate insists on comprehensive; the House says it won't go to conference with the Senate on comprehensive; it wants to look at step by step. I don't see how you get to an outcome this year with the two bodies in such a different place."
