Boehner Seeks GOP Majority on Immigration

Those who were hoping House Speaker John Boehner would cobble together a coalition on immigration reform that cut out the most conservative members of his party got some bad news Tuesday morning. Boehner has been reassuring his caucus that he's not going to advance the bill without their support. “I have no intention of putting a bill on the floor that will violate the principles of our majority and divide our conference,” Boehner reportedly said during a private meeting. The congressman said he wants to see an immigration-reform bill succeed, and blamed the Democrats for slowing down progress.
