Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-Ohio) said “there’s a lot of education” that needs to take place before House members can attempt to implement immigration reform but he did not say whether he supported a “pathway to citizenship” for illegal aliens.

At a Capitol Hill press conference on Tuesday, a reporter asked Boehner, “Mr. Speaker, yesterday the RNC [Republican National Committee] recommended that the Republican Party embrace comprehensive immigration reform. What do you think of the recommendation, what do you think specifically of those calling for a pathway towards citizenship?”
