In yet another development in the roller coaster ride that is immigration reform; Paul Ryan told attendees at a town hall meeting in Wisconsin that his committee is not likely to vote on immigration related bills until October which would push back a vote in the House on comprehensive immigration reform.
It is expected that the House will propose multiple bills that will separately address different elements of immigration reform. It appears as though the House favors an a la carte approach rather than a comprehensive one.
We were expecting and hoping that immigration reform would be addressed toward the end of the summer but it appears as though we can only hope for late autumn. Of course, it is unclear whether Mr. Ryan’s projections are his own speculation or representative of the majority.
