President Obama made it clear that he intends to push to pass immigration reform legislation in the current calendar year. From the Huffington Post:
President Barack Obama vowed Thursday to restart his push for comprehensive immigration reform this year after a bruising fight on government spending that only increased bad blood between the two parties.

"The majority of Americans think this is the right thing to do, and it's sitting there waiting for the House to pass it," he said during remarks from the White House.

"Now if the House has ideas on how to improve the Senate bill, let's hear them. Let's start the negotiations. But let's not leave this problem to keep festering for another year, or two years, or three years."

"This can and should get done by the end of this year," he added.

In the mean time, Republicans are not hiding their feelings when it comes to President Obama and warning him that they link the budget battle and the immigration debate and are not in a negotiating mood.

Republicans and Democrats in Congress and the President can all benefit if immigration reform passes. Of course, so will the entire country. Here's hoping everyone will realize this and get back to moving an immigration bill.
