Immigration Reform Effectively Dead

"The two-year attempt to push immigration reform through Congress is effectively dead and unlikely to be revived until after President Obama leaves office, numerous lawmakers and advocates on both sides of the issue said this week," the Washington Post reports.

"The slow collapse of hopes for new border legislation -- which has unraveled in recent months amid persistent opposition from House Republicans -- marks the end of an effort that both Democrats and Republicans have characterized as central to the future of their parties. The failure leaves some 12 million illegal immigrants in continuing limbo over their status and is certain to increase political pressure on Obama from the left to act on his own."
