Congress: How Immigration Reform Died (Part I)

"[I]n a series of interviews with The Hill over the past two months, Democratic and Republican negotiators said the group’s failure stemmed from divisions among Democrats over strategy and policy, as well as Boehner’s refusal to put his weight behind the bill and help steer it through the House.  This account is drawn from extensive interviews with six members of the group and several of their advisers.  Some spoke on the condition of anonymity to reconstruct, for the first time, private negotiations that occurred over several years." - Russell Berman, Nov. 12, 2013.
