GOP Leaders Split Over Immigration Reform, Near Term

"Don’t count Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus among those who believe comprehensive immigration reform is dead this Congress.  Despite exasperation among reform advocates that the House has refused to vote on any major immigration bill — particularly the Senate-passed legislation — Priebus said that his “gut” feeling is that the House will indeed pass an immigration overhaul in the next 14 months. ... House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) has informed immigration advocates that the House will not take up a comprehensive bill this year, according to the Associated Press." - Politoco, Nov. 8, 2013.
