    Will The House Of Representatives Hold CIR Hostage To An "Immigration Reform Cliff"?

    Bloggings: Will the House of Representatives Hold CIR Hostage to an "Immigration Reform Cliff"? By Roger Algase

    Immediately after the crushing defeat that the Republicans suffered in the races for the White House and Senate last November, in large part due to their inability to attract Latino voters, many GOP leaders suddenly saw the light on immigration reform. Or so it seemed.*

    House Speaker John Boehner, for example, stated in an interview with Diane Sawyer on ABC World News right after the election:

    "This issue has been around far too long, and while I believe it's important to secure our borders and to enforce our laws, I think a comprehensive approach is long overdue, and I'm confident that the president, myself, others, can find the common ground to take care of this issue once and for all."

    That was then. *But on January 22, 2013, Boehner, according to ABC News, sounded a different note:

    "There are lot of priorities for the Congress [and] a lot of priorities for the president, but right now the biggest issue is the debt that's crushing the future for our kids and our*grandkids."

    Boehner also said:

    "Taxpayers understand that you can't keep spending money that you don't have, so we're going to continue to focus, especially here over this next *90 - 120 period, on bringing some fical responsibility to Washington."

    Does this mean that Boehner and the House plan to hold immigration reform hostage to an attempt to enact the Republican upper class tax cutting agenda into law? Having lost on the "fiscal cliff", are the House Republicans fighting back with an "immigration reform cliff"?
