NY Times: Immigration Reform No Longer Priority in Republican House


Capitol buildingConsideration for immigration reform in Congress is likely to be delayed until the end of the year, reports the NY Times.

Debate over possible US military involvement in Syria along with the continuing federal showdown over the budget have pushed immigration reform to the back of the line.

In addition, the Times reports Republican concern over losing Hispanic support in the 2012 presidential election has faded.

Supporters of  immigration reform warn there will be consequences if there are further delays.

“We believe they can walk and chew gum at the same time,” said Eliseo Medina, of  the Service Employees International Union. “The more they delay, the worse it will be for them.”

You can read about the big push planned this fall for action on immigration reform in the NY Times.
