Immigration Reform Legislation Not Happening in 114th Congress, Says Senate Leader Mitch McConnell
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said immigration reform legislation will not be discussed during the current 114th Congress.
During a press conference on Thursday, McConnell blames President Barack Obama for congress not moving forward with bipartisan comprehensive immigration reform.
“Not this Congress,” McConnell said, in response to the possibility picking up immigration reform in the Senate. “I think when the president took the action he did, after the 2014 election, he pretty much made it impossible for us to go forward with immigration reform this Congress.”
