House Republicans Say Cruz Killed Immigration Reform

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) "may have scuttled a compromise on immigration reform with just one sound bite," the San Antonio Express-News reports.

"House Republicans who supported 'principles' of immigration reform floated by Speaker John Boehner late last month grumbled Tuesday that the plan was dead on arrival because Cruz blasted it as 'amnesty,' spurring a blizzard of negative phone calls to House Republicans."

Said one GOP lawmaker: "After that it was 'We'll get back to you on immigration reform'"
